Outdoor Alternative is an informal campsite for active groups, families and friends, a place to escape the busy world and enjoy the outdoors in a low impact and sustainable way.
If your looking for a ‘green’ campsite in a great location, a place to run, swim, bike, kayak, climb, walk and relax then follow the bumpy track………
Our campsite has unallocated pitches, just choose a spot on the camping fields that suits you and pitch up. Perfect for tents and camper vans.* We have 3 toilets and wash basins, and 2 showers, a compost toilet and straw bail urinal. Our repurposed container ‘The Container Kitchen’ is where you can find us, book in, pick up a recycling bag, preorder a breakfast bap and buy coffee and homemade cakes and charcoal.
We are committed to sustainable development and reducing our carbon footprint, and are passionate about the natural environment if this sounds like your sort of place and you would like to come and camp here we ask you to become a member of ‘OA Camping’. It is free to join but we ask that you share our passion for sustainable and low impact camping. To find out more and join OA Camping click here.
*Online booking for tents and camper vans only. If you have a caravan or RV you must email us directly as we are limited to 3 at any one time and have restricted access. firstname.lastname@example.org
