Camping is self-catering affair however we can provide you with a Lazy Breakfast Hamper consisting of home baked bread, eggs from our hens , homemade granola, local jams and butter. From mid-summer onwards enjoy salads and vegetables from our garden. Our hampers can be pre-booked or arranged before you arrive.

We ask that lit chimeneas and cooking stoves are never left unattended. Please don’t approach the pond or wander amongst the ducks, but please them from the bench overlooking the water. Children are welcome to help at morning duck feeding time.

The Lazy Duck is a peaceful place. Please be mindful of this when you are enjoying the swings and hammock and around the chimenea fires. For everybody’s benefit we ask for a respectful quiet period between 11pm and 8am. Lazy Duck is a non-smoking environment.
