Your Hosts

The Royden family acquired Netherfield Place and the surrounding estate in the 1950s and have owned it ever since. Whilst the family sold off Netherfield Place in the 1980s they still retain the land which houses the campsite and large farmhouse.

Our campsite is managed by the lovely couple, Dan & Grace, who are very knowledgeable about the area and always have a big smile for our happy campers.
