The Farm has been owned by the Lord family since 1918 and the first tents were pitched in 1923, so the park has grown rather than been developed. There are 90 fully serviced static owner occupied caravans on the park, as well as plenty of room for tourers, tents or motorhomes of any size.
With no club and no pool, people who come to Fen Farm do so for the tranquil atmosphere and children often surprise themselves by finding an occupation that does not involve anything being switched on or booted up! There are always the play areas with swings, seesaws, climbing frames etc. In addition to this children enjoy ‘crabbing’ in the creeks, playing on the beach or in the sea. We also have 2 open fields for ball games, flying kites or just walking the dog.
Wildlife at Fen Farm
We have been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award for the work we have done to protect the environment in and around the campsite.
Award Winning Loos!
The toilet block was designed with conservation in mind with solar powered water heating (backed up with gas when necessary). Sun pipes provide light in the daytime. We have been awarded 5 stars from the Loo of the year awards 2 years running. An important part of the block is the wheelchair accessible toilet and shower, as well as the family toilet and shower room. There is also a laundry room with coin operated washing machines, tumble driers and iron along with a freezer for ice blocks and sinks for washing up.
Bring your Dog on Holiday
Dogs are welcome and there are dog walks, with bins, all around the park. There are also many footpath walks nearby as well as a dog friendly beach.
Unfortunately, due to previous experience, we can not accept bookings from groups of people under 21.
