Bell Tents Are Open!!!

After months of preparation, today is the day the Bell Tents reopen for the 2024 season!

They’re looking better than ever before.

If you’ve stayed in them last year you’ll know all about them…

If you stayed in one in 2022, you really need to come back and try the upgraded versions. They are so much better now than when we first opened them in 2022.

if you haven’t stayed in them at all yet… Why ever not!? 🙂

Even those who aren’t traditional campers (such as Mrs. Y) have loved the experience!

It’s all the fun of a camping experience, the enjoyment of the outdoors, but with all of the hard work (putting them up, taking them down, etc)done for you...

The space is huge, the beds are comfy, the décor is beautiful, and the wood burning stove is the finishing touch! [chefs kiss emoji]

& the rates are simple:

£125 for a peak date which is a Friday, Saturday or Summer Holiday Date.

£85 for any other night.

That’s for the whole family. 2 adults (max) and up to 4 children.

The Bell Tent with the Hot Tub and lake view is a little more at £180pn, and tends to be the most popular option.


Next, a BIG well done Paul Percival and Natasha Ashley who were winners of our recent email and Facebook competitions!

& Finally, away from the site…

Readers may remember last weekend I made it back down to my hometown of Derby to see The Mighty Rams take on Bolton Wonders.

With the teams in 2nd & 3rd place, respectively, in League 1, there was a lot on the line…

& the pressure showed.

It’s wasn’t the best example of the beautiful game, but despite the average performance the score finished 1 – 0 to Derby and they got over the line.

With around 7 games to go and a 4 point gap, I’m optimistic of a return to Championship football next year, but we’ll see.

It was lovely to catch up with friends and family, and I stayed over at my Uncle’s house.

Whilst speaking about children and grandchildren that evening, he told me something that has stayed with me…

He’d just got back from a ski trip with his 2 boys.

He said children spell ‘Love’ – T I M E.

Profound, but he was absolutely right.

There’s nothing more that kids love than spending time with their parents / grandparents / family.

But sometimes, being stuck in the house with a long list of jobs can get in the way.

It’s time yes, but not quality time.

& I think that’s a big reason we get as many bookings as we do…

Families need quality time together.

& that’s the real essence of what our site is about.

Time Together.

Fun Experiences.

Fond Memories.

I’ll leave it there for today…

I’ll hope to see you soon…

All my very best,

Alex 🙂

Camp Site Manager (& off to sunny Stockport later today to meet some old friends & spend some of that quality time just mentioned. If you have any recommendations of places / pubs to visit there – let me know).
