We stayed in the camping field associated with the inn. There is no advanced booking so it's first come first served but we had no trouble finding a pitch for a large tent. This may have been because it was November and freezing, high summer season may be different. There is no campsite specific parking but plenty of available space to accommodate all vehicle types. The facilities reserved for campers (digital lock codes given at checkin) were perfect and included:2 washing up sinks; separate gents, ladies and disabled toilets each with a shower. The staff at the inn are extremely sociable, knowledgeable and helpful. The food is excellent, the drinks range extensive and the views amazing. All this at a snip of the price of the national trust campsite down the road. I definitely recommend and will stay here again. Excellent!
