We also have a a 9-hole pitch and put and a boules pitch. During the summer months local wildlife specialists visit the park with large birds of prey.

Where can I find information about the local area?

Go to the section of this website To see and do. You can also find more information about the local area in the information hut in the park where you can pick up leaflets.

What time is the Back of Beyond Reception open?

It’s normally open between 9am and 6pm. If it’s closed and you need assistance, please call the mobile number on the reception sign.

What time is quiet time?

Because Back of Beyond is for over 18s, it is much quieter than most touring parks. We do ask for quiet between 10pm and 8am, but we make an exception for the birds, who are especially busy from April to June!

Are dogs allowed?

Yes! Dogs love it here!  We do ask that dogs be quiet and well behaved. They must be on the lead around the pitches. Dogs are not permitted in the lakes area because it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and they cannot stay in the furnished glamping accommodation. More about dogs at Back of Beyond.
