Pitches and booking
In peak and high seasons pitches are available from 2pm on the day your holiday commences. In value and low seasons you may arrive earlier. Guests are asked to let Beare’s Den know their expected time of arrival. Guests must vacate by 11.30 am on the day of departure and leave the pitch in a clean and tidy state. Pitches offered are for one tent or camper van only, plus one vehicle.
A pitch consists of a 6m x 6m space. In addition to this there will be charges for all guests. It is your responsibility to ensure that you can fit both your vehicle and unit on the pitch allocated to you. If you decide to bring extra guests, these must fit within the pitch.
Dogs are welcome to stay by prior arrangement. Dogs must be supervised at all times, kept on a lead and all mess picked up immediately and disposed of appropriately.

We will confirm your booking indicating that a pitch has been reserved for you on the dates required. The pitch offered will be based upon the information supplied by you.
You may request a specific pitch, BUT THIS CANNOT BE GUARANTEED.
Sometimes pitches have to be re-allocated depending on need. We will inform you if we need to make a change. Acceptance of a booking is not conditional on the allocation of a specific pitch.
