The lanes look narrow – will I get my van through?


We have lots of lorries and caravans entering our site daily, so you shouldn't have any problem getting yout van through! However, we are situated in the Dorset countryside and we are surrounded by narrow lanes. Therefore, please do not rely on a SatNav to find our campsite. Instead, drive to Salway Ash via the B3162. Then head down Ash Lane. You will be driving down a country lane for less than half a mile, before turning left into Pineapple Estate.
We are signposted from Salway Ash, but we will also email you directions 3 days before your booking commences. You can also find directions on our Contact Us page.

Yes. These can be added when you're making your online booking. If you want to add extras at a later date, please contact us and we can add it for you.




Can we bring a fire pit or BBQ?


You may bring your own firepit or BBQ, but it must be risen off the ground. This is so it doesn't burn the grass. For this reason, disposable BBQ's are not permitted. Each pitch has a fire pit that you're more than welcome to use, free of charge. We have made the firpits from recycled washing machines, so they're good for the planet & good for keeping you warm! Wood must be purchased from our shop. We say this, as the wood we sell is well seaonsed. This is important as if the wood isn't seasoned, more smoke is given off negatively impacting fellow guests stay. Fires must be extinguished by 10pm at the latest.

We have been busy making more fire pits, from recycled metal. Each pitch now has it's own fire pit. It will be on your pitch when you arrive and you're more than welcome to use it for free.
