(Please mention

You can really get back to nature in the tranquillity of a secluded holiday at Setthorns - and lots of wildlife take advantage of the site's quiet atmosphere. Campers are often treated to visits by free roaming ponies and deer that wander among the grand oak and pine woodland of the forest.

The 235 pitches offer a mixture of grass and hardstanding, with optional electric hook ups.

Pets and non-members are welcome.
