Reception opens for new arrivals from:
We implore you to please not arrive on site before these times under any circumstances (prior arrangement for earlier arrivals than these will not be given, so we would ask to please not get in touch with any requests to the contrary).
The latest arrival time (without explicit confirmation otherwise obtained by email) is 8.30pm. If you are in the situation where you need to arrive later than this, you will need to contact us via this form.
Without having made a valid late stay day visitors booking, all campers must have vacated their pitch area by 11am on the day of departure.
To remain on site with your tent/van still in place past 11am, please place a separate day visitors booking for the full number of persons that will remain on site. Note that where the booking is with electric, the electric cable will need to be disconnected by 11am, even with a day visitors booking.
No vehicle movement is permitted on the campsite between the hours of 10.30pm and 6am. Outside of this period, no vehicle is to progress beyond the car park in the main farm courtyard on any late arrival or return.
To preserve a back-to-nature ambience, STRICTLY NO MUSIC, TV, RADIO, VIDEO GAMES or similar should be audible within the boundaries of the park at any time.
If you are aware of any persons breaking this rule, please be sure to contact a member of staff as soon as you can.
In a rural environment as Blacklands, it can be surprising just how far and well even the slightest noise will carry across the entire park. A tent offers zero insulation against that either. With the very great majority of campers coming with babies & young children, we operate a strict policy of all-quiet after 11pm.
We understand this may not suit the plans of everybody - but Blacklands is not a destination for singles groups, for adult birthday parties, or alike - so please do make sure you are on board with all of our regulations before booking. Else, it only makes trouble for the warden who's responsibility it is to enforce the rule, and disappointment for the parties concerned.
It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to supervise children using the playground at all times. Consequently, Blacklands Caravan & Camping is not liable for any injury sustained by a child (or adult) using the playground, nor for any damage to or loss of personal property.
The playground closes strictly at 9.30 pm, after which time parents/guardians are obliged to ensure that children do not attempt to return to the playground.
The maximum permissible length of caravans or motorhomes is 7 metres. Caravans and motorhomes longer than 7 metres are not permitted on site.
Dogs are permitted - but we do ask not to bring along dogs that are prone to barking.
Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times without exception.
To encourage those camping with us with dogs to take up a perhaps more suitable location in the paddocks, the charge for dogs in the playground field (in warmer months) is increased over the paddocks.
The camping fields at Blacklands are not divided up into individual pitches in any way. The camping area of the playground field is not segmented at all, while the paddocks is split into a number of smaller sections (called, you guessed, paddocks).
Beyond the choice of field when booking (either the playground field or the paddocks), it isn't possible to pre-allocate a particular area or section of your chosen field before arrival. This first come first served basis goes for groups also.
All pitch locations are allocated on the day by the wardens, largely according to the dispersal of pitches at that point.
We are sure that we won't need to tell anyone that would be camping with us what constitutes acceptable behaviour around children (who are never far from you when staying with us in warmer months).
However, in the event that we or our our guests should notice excessive bad language being used, overt drunken behaviour, shouting, loud noise after 11pm, or any other form of unsuitable behaviour, we reserve the right to ask those persons to cut short their stay, perhaps with immediate effect.
In that case, no refunds or credits will be awarded in lieu of camping paid for but not fulfilled.
We also reserve the right to place a stop on future bookings from any persons that we feel it is warranted to do so.
Sign written vans are permitted, but once any camping gear is unloaded on arrival, the van needs to be moved to the designated area, as directed by a warden.
