Social distancing of pitches. There must be 2 metres between your tent pegs and those of your neighbour.
Social distancing must be observed at all times with those outside your bubble. Facilities may be restricted if covid risks and government instructions change.
Pitches to a maximum 10 metres in length measured from the edge of the field towards its centre. Pitches are 8 metres wide, If you have awnings or add-ons you must purchase an extra adjacent pitch. Check extras when booking. No running or engines permitted on site. Pitches may be reserved for return if going out for the day.
Toilet tent and portapotty required for each family. At present you will not be allowed on site without this. A disposal tank is sited at the entrance with a standpipe for washing cassettes and a new station is being provided in the far field. There is no charge for the toilet tent.
Facilities. At the present moment in April we DO NOT plan to have the toilet block open except for the wardens. We DO plan to have the hot showers open with daily cleaning. The risk of covid contact transmission after taking a hot shower is greatly reduced, and the showers will be treated with an anti viral coating which lasts the season.
Noise Please be considerate to other campers and avoid all unnecessary noise, especially when returning from Burnham Market in the evening. No music is allowed from speakers, acoustic guitars are OK. Please do not make any noise between 10pm and 8 am.
Wardens control the site with the help of remote cameras when not present. They will check leavers are out by 12pm, and welcome new guests at 5pm each day. Please make sure you have your numbered receipt with you. A mobile number is available after booking for emergency or urgent messages when you are on site. For other questions please email us
Refunds cannot be made after your booking is accepted, so please take out appropriate holiday insurance to cover cancellation and other eventualities. However unused booking fees can be gift aided to St Margaret’s Church and claimed on your tax return. (St Margaret’s Church Burnham Market Charity No 1140097). In the event of extreme weather conditions St Margarets church will act as a refuge. The only exception will be if government coronvirus rules change to result in cancellation of wild camping.
Dogs (max 2) must be tethered or kept on a lead and always under control. They may not be left on site without their owners Owners of constantly barking or aggressive dogs will be asked to leave. All droppings must be bagged at once and the ground washed if necessary.
