The Club rents the site March to September. Club membership is inclusive of camping fees - no extra to pay.
The Club is situated on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the Club is allowed continued use of the site under conditions which we have incorporated into our own Club Rules. These rules are in place to ensure that we comply with the Land Management Agreement that is in place between the Club and English Nature due the SSSI status of the site.
We also have rules in place for the safety, consideration and respect for other Club members, the landowners, the wider community, the environment and to fulfil our legal obligations.
The site is only 50 yards from the beach (sheltered by some sand dunes), the beach is not naturist, though we do use it with discretion. Members and visitors are expected to take shorts or a towel etc. to cover up should a member of the public appear on the beach. Only the site itself is naturist – after the second gate.
Water : You have to bring your own water to the site. Water is available at the Rugby Club (you pass this on the way in).
Electric Hook-ups : No electric hook-ups available on site.
Chemical Toilet Disposals : A chemical toilet emptying point is available at the Rugby Club. Chemical toilets can also be emptied on site by burying in a hole well away from the camping area (green fluid only). Ask a committee member for where this can be done.
Pitching of Tents & Caravans : Due to the fragile nature of the SSSI site we use, tents must not be pitched on the same place for more than a week. Caravan awnings must use a 'breathable' type ground sheet. Caravans must not stand on the same plot for more than two weeks.
Pets : Dogs love it on site and the beach, but they must be on a lead at all times. Clean up any mess after you. Cats also have to be contained, this is to protect ground nesting birds and other wildlife.
Barbecues and Fire Baskets : Disposable barbeques should be placed on bricks (eg pebbles from the beach) to avoid scorching the grass underneath.
Generators : Please use with consideration for other club members and visitors. Caravans are usually pitched well spaced apart so this is rarely a problem.
Gas : Gas, including Camping Gaz and Calor lightweight bottles, are available in Pelleymounters in Millom. Usually open Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Caravan Spares and Accessories : Bardsea Leisure in Ulverston has an extensive range of camping and caravan spares and accessories.
