Please read our:
On-Site Safety & Campsite Codes
Parents please note:
- Northmoor Lock Paddocks and Long Meadow are riverside locations.
- Northmoor lock and weir are NOT part of the campsite.
Children must not cross the weir footbridge without appropriate adult supervision.
- Northmoor Lock House is the private residence of the lock keeper and his family. Please respect their privacy, especially in the evenings, and, beautiful as they may be, please do not pick flowers from the flower borders and garden.
- Supervision of your children is, at all times, your responsibility. Please ensure that you keep them safe and that they behave appropriately.
All our camping locations are rural sites in which there are the expected hazards of nature.
General Campsite Code
We want everyone, including other campers, those who are passing in boats on the river, fishing on the riverbank or walking the Thames Path to enjoy the peace and rural tranquility of our sites. Our Campsite Code is designed to reflect this aim and is a condition of staying on our campsites. We reserve the right to ask those who cause a disturbance to others to leave: Campsite Fees will not be refunded.
- Please pitch your tent carefully to ensure that it is a safe distance from your campfire area (min 3m) and adjacent tents (6m between groups and 3m between tents within one group)
- We do not have a curfew as such but we do ask you to keep noise at a level which will not disturb other campers, the lock keeper, or boats moored overnight at the lock, especially between 9.30pm and 8.00am
- Sorry, no amplified music or drums – but you are welcome to play other acoustic instruments until a reasonable hour. Please check with your camping neighbours.
- Please don’t ride bikes in the camping fields.
- No drunken or boisterous behaviour – we want you all to enjoy the peace here. If you’re looking for a noisy weekend or venue for a Stag or Hen party – sorry, this is not the campsite for you!
- No remote controlled or petrol powered toys or drones. You may think they’re fun but some find them as annoying as mosquitos!
- Sorry, generators are not permitted.
- If you plan to enjoy a campfire and/or BBQ (and we hope you do), please refer to our Campfire and BBQ Code
- If you plan to swim in the river, please refer to our Wild Swimming Code
- If you plan to bring your own canoe or paddle board, please refer to our Canoe Code
- If you’d like to bring your dog, please refer to our Doggy Do’s & Dont’s Code
- We make every effort to keep our sites free of rubbish for the enjoyment of everyone. Please assist us by using the bins provided.
- We also ask you to do your bit to protect the environment by using the recycling facilities. We provide individual recycling, food waste and rubbish caddies for use during your stay. Please only place items that cannot be recycled in the general rubbish bins.
- Please check your site carefully for rubbish and tent pegs and leave your camping area as you would wish to find it.
