The SatNav friendly postcode is PO40 9DE. From the Yarmouth Harbour and ferry exit point, turn right at the roundabout and cross the River Yar. Follow the A3054 towards Freshwater, as it bears left & after approximately 400 yards take the left turn into Pixley Hill. Continue as this road changes onto Copse Lane heading into a small residential area. You will pass Redlake Road and Ronstan Gardens, the next left turning is our un-named lane - opposite the turning for Regina Road. Our signs are visible at the entrance to the lane, next to the bus stop on your left. Take the lane to the corner from where you will see our private car park ahead. This is where your cars should be parked for the duration of your stay, however for unloading and loading purposes, there is a lay-by further along the lane (300 metres) at our site entrance gate.

Arrival & Departure


Arrival Time is between 4.30pm - 7pm, please let us know when you board your ferry by texting 07585 956141. It is very important to plan to arrive at the site during daylight. Settling in to your canvas lodge will take some time, from unloading your luggage to going through the welcome and safety briefing including the operation of the wood burning stove & water heater. As we are off-grid it is necessary to do this during daylight hours. We will issue guests with the gate code, safe code and keys to the lodges on arrival, so again, please let us know when you have boarded the ferry to ensure that we are there to greet you.


Departure Time is before 9.30am. Please can you strip the beds and place bed linen in the clear plastic bags provided (this is the best way to ensure you have gathered together all of your belongings). Please leave the tent in a clean and tidy condition. We would be grateful if you could empty all internal bins & put them in the outside ones that you will find in your tent shed to the rear. There is a key drop slot in the chalet for you to leave the lodge keys.
