Bowley Field is an idyllic setting at the lower end of the site.  A large, flat, open field perfect for large groups or activities, it is away from the hustle and bustle of the main area of the site, but only a short walk to all the activities, reception and Trader.

Bowley Field is suitable for approx. 180-200 campers on six pitches.

Facilities include

- Water taps,

- Wood pile,

- Toilets immediately adjoining Bowley Field,

- Vehicle access to the edge of the field.


We ask that you do not drive cars or other vehicles on to the field.  There is a hard standing parking area on the right as you enter Bowley Field – please keep all vehicles here or on the main car park.

Altar fire barrels are available outside the Den – feel free to borrow the barrels and grills, but please dispose of your ashes responsibly, and return the barrels and grills to the storage area on departure.

There is a public footpath that leaves Bowley in Bowley Field, travelling east or west along the river.  This can form part of a great night hike for your group, with a circular route towards Whalley and back to the top of the campsite.  Ask at reception for more details.

All of our camping is available year-round, on weekends, holidays and (by special arrangement) during the week.
