Gorgeous place to stay. If there are no parks available- follow the road down and around (shingle) - follow it around the first left (doggy bag site) and there are plenty more spaces. The Bus Cafe is a great spot for a munch.



Never stayed the night here just came to have a round of disc golf but looked quite nice. Flushing toilets and cool jetty with a slide off it into the water. Looked decently busy during the day but seemed like it had a nice vibe. Follow me @jo__weiner

Amazing spot, quiet and plenty of room. You can walk around and find fruit trees. Tents allowed!
