The 4-pitch Lazy Duck Camping Ground, the Lazy Duck Hostel, Duck keeper’s Cottage and Woodman’s Hut are quite separate from each other. Combined groups cannot normally be accommodated, very sorry.
Tent Sizes & Pitches
We provide space for four lightweight 1, 2 or 3 person tents and a reserve pitch for anyone who arrives ‘off the road’ either cycling or on foot. If in error you arrive with a tent larger than 3 man you may find we cannot accommodate you.
Deposits & Refunds
We don’t ask for camping deposits, simply that should your plans change you let us know straight away so others may book.
If you have to leave early, with regret we are unable to offer a refund. This is because we are very small and others will have been turned away to ensure you could have the nights you asked for.
The Lazy Duck is a peaceful place. Please be mindful of this when you are enjoying the swings and hammock and around the chimenea fires.
For everybody’s benefit we ask for a respectful quiet period please between 11pm and 8am.
Be assured, Lazy Duck is a non-smoking environment.
Visitors & Dogs
We can sometimes welcome extra visitors not registered with us. Please ask us first in case extra numbers would pose problems for resident guests.
Unfortunately, with sheep, hens and wandering waterfowl we are unable to welcome even the most obedient of dogs to the camping ground.
Safety & Ducks
We ask that lit chimeneas and cooking stoves are never left unattended.
Please don’t approach the pond or wander amongst the ducks, but do watch them from the Welcoming Seat overlooking the water. We are always happy when children ask to help at morning duck feeding time.
Please take full responsibility for your own children anywhere in the grounds. Thank you.
You will find recycling arrangements clearly marked for all separated waste materials. If in any doubt please ask us.
We ask that protective slates are used beneath all cooking stoves and hot pots to avoid any burn marks on the grass.
If you bring a portable BBQ please show it to us before lighting and if necessary we can give you everything needed to save you accidentally burning the grass underneath.
Vehicles may not be taken on to the camping ground at any time during your stay. The distance to walk from the car park is very short.
For stays of more than 3 nights we ask that you re-pitch so that the ground will remain green and fresh
Before pitching your tent please find us by ringing the ship’s bell at the main house. If we are not there you will find welcoming information inside the open door.
If you are going to arrive later than expected,
please ring 01479 821642.
Otherwise, we may have to let your pitch go to another camper.
We ask that you please vacate your pitch by 10.30am on the day of departure to allow time for camping ground maintenance.
The next step is for us to talk by e-mail via the form below. If you ring us on 01479 821642 we may well be out and about, so it is better by far to submit this form. Thank you.
