Our ethos

Overstrand Campsite is created to reflect what we would have liked when camping with our own family within the natural confines of only being open for two months.

We try to keep rules and signs to a minimum and allow our guests to be themselves.

The few rules we do have are for your own safety and the enjoyment of the campsite by everyone...

  • For the well being of children's ears and my wife, we are intollerant of swearing.
  • We simply ask each of you to be considerate to your neighbours but should you have a disagreement we will resolve it as best as we can.  However, please be aware we do not operate a curfew, lights out policy, no talking in the library policy, don't breath on the grass policy or any other such policy.
  • Unfortunately we do not allow gazebos (or any other shelters) or campfires on the campsite purely because we have a lot of people and children on site and we are on a cliff top where the coastal weather can change rapidly.  We have taken this decision not because we dislike fires or feel protective about our grass but because of our location and the desire to make sure no one gets hurt.

Season Opening

The campsite is only open during the 2014 season from Fri July 4th to Sunday August 31st and no, that's not a mistake.

The reason is the the campsite has limited planning permission and the opening times are all we are allowed - we wish it could be different.
