Campervan, Log Pod or Tent
To book a campervan, log pod, or tent pitch at Northmoor Lock Paddocks, please visit our ‘Availability Overview’ page via the link below. From there you will be able to ‘Request a Pitch’. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible to confirm availability. Camping fees must then be submitted in full to secure your booking.
Northmoor Lock Paddocks is a small campsite: We take great care not to overcrowd the site so when completing your booking request you will need to include the following information as appropriate:
- the make and model of your campervan (short wheel base only)
- the size (stated capacity) of your tent: 2-man, 4-man etc
- the make and model of 5-man and larger tents
- whether you would like to add an awning or extension to your campervan or tent
Want to come with friends?
Many campsites no longer allow groups but as long as the groups who do come don’t cause a problem for other campers we’re happy to welcome them. Having said that, we have found in the past that, inevitably, the larger the group, the more noise they make: This can easily overwhelm individuals, couples, families, and those who have come to relax and unwind and is partly why we now only allow small groups.
It therefore probably goes without saying that if you’re looking for a location for a noisy birthday, stag or hen party, then this is not the site for you!
Even with a small group, noise levels can rise easily, particularly when gathered around a campfire in the evenings, so we ask you to be aware of this and mindful of others on the campsite, especially after 9pm and before 8am in the morning.
Each family will need to submit their own booking request, agree to the campsite code and pay their pitch fees etc, however, before they do that you’ll want to know if we can accommodate your group as a whole so, here’s how to enquire:
- (1a) Start by completing a booking request for yourself, that way we’ll have all the details for booking your own pitch.
- (1b) When you have completed your own pitch details, you’ll find an option to provisionally reserve/’pencil in’ additional pitches for your friends whether that be a log pod, campervan or tent pitch.
- (1c) When you’ve completed this, submit your form.
- (2) We’ll look at the details for your pitch and the additional pitches you’ve asked us to ‘pencil in’ and confirm with you whether we can accommodate your group.
- (3) If we are able to say ‘yes’ to your group, you then need to ask your friends to visit our website to submit their own booking request. We’ll tie up their requests with the pitches provisionally reserved/’pencilled in’ for them by you so that you can camp close together.
Tent pitches – please note
In order for us to check availability for your group as a whole you’ll need to include the size of each tent (2-man, 3-man, 4-man etc), so please check this with each ‘family’ when you’re discussing your holiday plans. Please also note that we only accept small campervans, such as the old VW’s, not motorhomes.
It’s important that the information you provide at this stage is correct: If you reserve a pitch for your friends and they subsequently submit details for a larger tent or campervan, chances are we won’t be able to accommodate them and that would be a shame.
Northmoor Lock – Upper Lock Paddock
Tents and Campervans
The Upper Lock Paddock, upstream of Northmoor Lock, stretches from north to south along the riverbank with views of the evening sunset across the river.
This site is on two levels with full sunshine on the site from early morning.
Campervan pitches are on the upper level which is not as flat as the tent area on the lower level. Campervans are able to level themselves either by lining themselves along the ridge or by straddling the ridge, however, awnings may not be level with the campervan, as this illustration shows.
