This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Doolittles small campsite, just south of North Curry was our overnight. Its a smallholding with about 12 spaces adjacent to, and when busy in, an orchard. It is very pleasant to relax, dolittle and look out over the orchard; especially when there are ewes and lambs in it.
One toilet and one shower; both bright and spacious, with farmyard type plumbing. The electric shower was temperamental.
Paid my Â£12 fee at the farmhouse kitchen table and was introduced to Flora the sheepdog - who is afraid of sheep.
Contrary to previous reports, there was no dog mess.

We liked this site the owners were very friendly and the price was really good, it has an adequate shower and toilet and recycling facilities. The pitches were enormous and set in an orchard were we were told to help ourselves to fruit. However we also had problems with dogs running free all over the site and leaving their deposits, although club rules state dogs should be on a lead. We weren't asked to show our membership card so I imagine non members are allowed to camp.
