The Owner Says
The Paddock is the perfect place to pitch your tent for a camping or glamping holiday. Besides the fact that it is one of the only flat fields within walking distance to Ramsbottom, we boast ourselves on being a small, friendly site that you can sit and watch the world go by, or, you can go on an adventure, either way you will have a wonderful time.
The yurts really take camping to another level, they are fully furnished with everything you could need, from all kitchen equipment to a cozy double bed and log burner, BBQ and fire pit for the evenings and a selection of games for inside and outside.
The yurts have a double bed and also a double fold out bed for extra guests. They also have a cooking area that provides all cooking facilities, storage space and cool box. This area is covered by a large canvas awning giving you a dry outside dining/lounging area.
*** (DUE TO COVID BEDDING WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR THE 2021 SEASON)**
You get a bucket of wood for the indoor log burner, for the first night, firelighters and marshmallows for toasting. You can purchase more wood and charcoal for the rest of your holiday from the honesty shed when needed.
Yurt guests use the communal showers and toilet near the pot washing area that have instantaneous hot water and powerful showers!
Don't forget we have an honesty shed with Wood, Charcoal and camping essentials so you don't even have to bring any of that with you!
For an easy local wander, try the Irwell Sculpture trail, which you can join at the bottom of the lane – a nice walk with huge sculptures along the way. Ramsbottom is the main attraction, though, just a 15-minute walk by footpath and home to glut of excellent pubs, cafés and independent shops
