Haytop Country Park
Families and adults with touring caravans, tents, motor homes and motor caravans are accepted for two nights or more at a standard rate from Ј8 per night but depending on the number of persons and cars (extra overnight or day visitors must register and pay for parking). Deposits may be requested on booking or full payment for short stays. Tents: There are a few tent sites available in the former orchard and on the riverside. The orchard is convenient for facilities but the riverside is more remote and down a lane from the orchard. The riverside is not suitable for groups with small children as the banks of the river are steep and the water deep. The photographs on this website illustrate the two areas. Touring caravans, motor homes and motor caravans. Sites for these are available in various locations including places where metered electrical hook ups (10 amps 2000 watts capacity) may be booked in advance at extra charge. Most sites are convenient for the facilities but any particular needs should be notified when booking and the management will make all reasonable efforts to accommodate the same. Television and Wifi is available at a place near the office and a code is available for those undertaking reasonable and proper use of this facility. Visitors using a TV are recommended to bring FreeSat equipment as aerials will not pick up the signal. Dogs: A dog is allowed provided that it is kept on leash and under control. All dogs must be well behaved (in particular no barking or other conduct or behaviour causing material alarm and/or disturbance) and properly tended (in particular all excrement to be safely and properly packaged and removed). Boating: There is approximately one mile or river available for those who bring their own canoe, small boat or inflatable with adequate safety equipment (in particular individual suitable life jackets for each user). Electric outboard motors are allowed but otherwise mechanical propulsion is not permitted for environmental reasons. Shopping and eating places.
