Knight Stainforth Hall will accept grass pitches in 2024 from the 28th April - Late September (Subject to weather conditions)

We have accommodation for non-electric grass pitches and 18 tent pitches with electrical hook-up points - With tents measuring up to 7m x 7m.

If your tent exceeds this threshold, please contact us.

When the terrain is in good condition, these grass pitches are also available for mini campervans, and small converted vans. Larger motorhomes cannot be accommodated here - if you have one, please reserve one of our hard standing pitches.

Due to fire regulations and the distance between tents, unfortunately we do NOT allow gazebos on our park, or anything of a similar nature.

Groups & Families

As we regard ourselves as a quiet, family-friendly park, there are a few conditions we require customers to meet before they visit our park.

No group camping of any kind.


  • No adult groups
  • No single sex groups
  • No Duke of Edinburgh groups
  • No unaccompanied U18's groups

Knight Stainforth Hall will not accept more than 3 families in our park that know of each other. If we suspect that you are part of a group, you could be denied entry to the park.

If you think that we would suspect your booking as part of a larger 'group', please contact us to discuss your scenario.

We apologise if this affects peoples plans, these are regulations we unfortunately deem necessary to keep the standards of our park to where we want them.

BBQ's + Fire Pits

Due to fire regulations, Knight Stainforth Hall does NOT allow open wood fires and pits. Standard gas or charcoal fueled BBQ's are allowed, but must be raised off the turf to avoid scorching.
