Camping & Caravan Field

For touring caravans/camping and rallies there is a level seven acre field, sheltered by a well established hedge with several electric hook ups, some are which hard standing and grass so offer problem free caravanning even in the wettest of conditions. This area is open to all, so you do not have to be a member of any organisation to use it.  The field is ideal for most events, D of E camping and classic car rallies.


Campsite Facilities

Both male and female toilets including an accessible toilet and four showers are in easy distance to the camping and caravanning field.

Dog owners can exercise their dogs in the designated dog walk area.  No dogs are allowed around the fishing pools until after the fishery closes.  Please keep dogs on a lead and all fouling must be collected by the owner and placed in the designated bin. We ask that you view our Terms and Conditions before visiting our campsite.


Wolseley Bridge is less than one mile away, with a post office/shop and cash point within the petrol station. Bottled gas can be purchased from here too. There is a Vintage Inn Pub with good home cooking, an Indian restaurant/takeaway – with deliveries available to the site, a garden centre, craft and antique rooms and the well known Staffordshire Wildlife Trust Headquarters with visitor centre, cafe and walks.
