Have recently heard the sad news that Dave King passed away on 2nd April. Although they have not been out with us recently, Dave and Shirley were very active with the South West Folk section for many years. Our condolences to Shirley and the family.

       Welcome to all …

At our meets, which are open to all members of The Camping & Caravanning Club, we have a hall available each evening for folk dancing to live music and we share songs, poems and stories. If you play an instrument there are opportunities for you to join us in the band mostly using Pete Mac’s books. At times, when space is available, we share crafts and games too.

See our 2020 meets here

Our current fees are £7.50pun + £1.50ppn (except for special events)
Sites open at 1pm unless stated otherwise – please do not arrive before then
