Downshay Farm

General information

  • Bookings only. Please email us with your dates. We will ask for a non-refundable deposit of £20 payable by BACS. We will confirm your booking and you will be given a unique ref number. Balance payable on arrival, card, cash or BACs.  Minimum stay three nights for the camping field.  Caravan site 5 nights minimum. You will not be allowed to pitch if you don’t have a booking. We will continue to limit numbers of bookings so as not to overcrowd the site and facilities.
  • Check-in and payment will continue be done outside at the new farm office. 
  • We have three spacious fields, whilst we cannot mark out pitches, there will be ample space for you to spread out. Tents must be at least 6 metres apart. Please respect other people’s space.
  • We have a new toilet disposal point for portable toilets: YOU MUST HAVE ELSAN ORGANIC TOILET ADDITIVE TO USE THIS.
  • Toilet blocks: Our well-ventilated showers/toilets/ washing up areas are open. Hand sanitiser points and soap provided. The toilet blocks are thoroughly cleaned several times a day.
  • Caravans may wish to use own toilet/shower if you have them. The garden toilet block is for the use of the caravan site only, leaving the two other blocks for the campsite.  
  • Instead of the garden shed, we now have a new area with freezers for icepacks which you will find next to the toilet and shower block to the right of the track.
  • You may bring a fire bowl or barbecue. No on the ground campfires.
  • Day visitors by arrangement only.
  • CHILDREN: Please supervise your children and do not allow them to play in the toilet blocks.
  • Please depart by 11am, arrivals 12-8pm. No late arrivals at all.
  • Please keep your dog on a lead at all times.


If you have any Covid symptoms, please do not come. Similarly, if you begin to feel ill whilst on holiday please self-isolate and return home.

No refunds will be given. As we are a family run business with no other staff, in the event of our own illness or any government changes, we reserve the right to close at any time. In this case deposits will be non-refundable or can be carried over.  

Thank you for your cooperation and we hope you have a good time.
