Sun Haven Valley Tent and Touring Pitch Restrictions
Tent Pitching / Siting campsite requirements
In order to meet the requirements
for a 3m spacing between tents, during Whitsun week,
July & August we require that you leave a 1.5m
strip down either side of your pitch which must
be left free of cars, tents, gazebo’s &
other equipment. (For the remainder of our camping
season you will be given a double size pitch)
On our camping pitch sizes sheet you will find a table of “usable pitch” sizes. Please ensure that your tent & other equipment needs no more than the usable area given, as alternative accommodation is not available if you cannot fit onto the usable area of the pitch. If your pitch is on the central island there must also be a 3 m gap from the tent to the fence, though this area may be used for tables, chairs,barbecues etc).
We will accept alternatives when you arrive on site providing you comply with a minimum 3m gap between tents & 3m to the fence on the central island If your pitch is next to one of our 3m spacing strips or a pathway the inter-tent spacing needs to be 6m across the strip. These 3m gaps that have been left between some camping pitches these may not be used by anyone, especially not for parking or storage
Tents must be 2m from the road, but this is the space usually used for car parking. (Please see diagram below (not to scale)
Caravan Siting requirements
During Whitsun week, July & August there must
be a 6m gap between caravans of which 3m may be
taken by an awning or tent of less than 4.6 sq.
m. but again the 1.5mstrip around the pitch must
be left clear (Caravans/awnings must also be 2m
from the road – the space often used for car
parking and on the central island they must be 3m
clear of the dividing fence).
On our pitch sizes sheet you will find a table of “usable pitch” sizes. Please ensure that your caravan, awning and other equipment is no bigger than the usable area given, as alternative accommodation is not available if you cannot fit onto the usable area of the pitch .
Unless we agree an alternative, your caravan will have to be on the left side of the pitch looking from the road with the wheel axle parallel to the road and the side of the caravan 1.5m from the pitch boundary. (Please see diagram below (not to scale).
Where 3m gaps have been left between pitches these may not be used by anyone, particularly excluding parking or storage.
