Donations and fees

Donations and fees

Although we are allowed to collect an annual membership fee from members, our site licence does not allow us to charge non-members for visits. Therefore, we rely on donations from visitors, as suggested below.

A Family Unit is a maximum of 2 adults + 2 children. No charge is made for children under 5 so these are not included.

All persons aged 18 or over are classed as adults.

Description ££
Day visit (prospective members, non-members and guests of members)
Note: pre-paid, proof of ID required, max. 3 days per year
Single £5
Family or Couple £8
[annual membership required before a 4th visit]
Addition for overnight camping, per night, applied to prospective members, non-members and guests of members
(Up to 24 hours from time of arrival)
£3.00 single (making £8.00 total)
£5.00 couple or family unit (making £13.00 in total)
Membership fee (annual)
(reduced by 50% if joining between Oct-March)
£55.00 single
£70.00 couple or family

Note: as the subs year runs Apr-March it can sometimes be cheaper for Prospective Members to pay Day Fees if joining late in a calendar year, and then join from April next. We will always advise the most economical way to join.
