Paying For Your Trip
A 50% payment is required to secure your booking. There is a minimum two night fee at weekends and 3 night fee over bank holidays. There is no charge for infants (under 3 yrs and in nappies). Same day bookings of one night stays will be accepted, but you will need to email rather than using the on-line booking system. These will be charged at £17.50 per adult/teenager and £12.50 per child (under 13) at peak periods (Weekends and School Holidays). We make a 1.5% administrative charge for payments made using the on-line booking system on the website.
30 Days notice or longer, your deposit less £25 admin fee (per pitch) will be returned.
Under 30 days, no refund. If a group arrives with fewer than the reserved number of visitors, the group will be charged in full for those that haven’t turned up. We recommend travel insurance to cover cancellation, loss, damage or injury. You will receive special offers/events during the year via email. You can opt out of these by clicking unsubscribe on the newsletter.
Arrival & Departure
The earliest check-in is 1500, the latest check-in is 2200. Please follow the address on the website for directions or using Google Maps will get you to the correct place. If you have problems finding the campsite, please contact us via email or telephone.
We do NOT allow day visitors, except in exceptional circumstances! We have a total occupancy for each campsite and we strictly limit the number of visitors that we allow on site. It therefore makes no sense allowing unfettered access to non-paying visitors, who will just spoil the peace and tranquillity for all.
No Caravans, large Camper Vans or Motorhomes. VW campers (or similar) are more than welcome.
We are happy to welcome dog owners, who have well behaved, non-yappy dogs which are ALWAYS on a lead. Owners of an un-attented dog (or dogs mess) will be required to leave and without compensation. Stray dogs on farmland, are very likely to be shot.
Each pitch has a fire pit for you to use. We insist that all firewood burned on site is bought through us. We have plentiful supplies of firewood & kindling on site (£6 per bag). Kitts is surrounded by woodland, which is under threat from destructive diseases such as Dutch Elm disease, Ash Dieback and Bleeding Canker in Horse Chestnuts. These may be spread by spores from burning wood and while we are sure our wood is disease-free, we cannot take the risk on wood from unknown sources.
We also do not allow processed wood, which are invariably polluting & include nails and other metal objects. Our meadows are grazed by livestock in the closed season and these can cause suffering and death.
We only allow BBQ’s that are off-the-ground, but you can have a campfire barbecue if you wish (bring a grid). Disposable BBQ’s are not allowed.
Non-accoustic music is not allowed (ie radio’s phones, car stereo’s etc) and while we tolerate acoustic music, people must be considerate of their neighbours. Banter around the fire until the early hours is encouraged, but quiet time is after 2200 and before 7am (to include early-rising children!), when disorderly behaviour, gratuitous noise, shouting, singing or screaming will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to immediately ask you to leave should this occur. Hen & Stag parties are not permitted. We do not allow fireworks or Chinese lanterns.
Rubbish & Waste
We ask that all rubbish is removed from the site and you will need to bring bin bags with you. We manage our campsites sustainably and we cannot deal with large amounts of rubbish. Recycling centres open (9am to 6pm) 7 days a week. They are at Maresfield (TN22 2HN); Lewes (BN7 3PS); Forest Row (RH18 5DW) & Burgess Hill (RH15 8AR).
Personal Property & Injury
We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal possessions or vehicles during your stay. Neither do we accept responsibility for accidental injuries. Please be aware that there are ponds/lakes and tree swings on site, so children should not be left unattended at any time.
If you need any help with the booking system please get in touch with us and we will be happy to help. If you are booking in large groups and everyone is paying separately, please let us know and we will be able to provide you with a code for your booking to make this easier! Please remember, if Kitts Camp is full there are others!!
