Default RE Campsite

Firstly, the event looks good & sounds like it'll be a blast.


I looked on the website for the campsite and they say they only have 30 pitches + caravan pitches. How is this going to fare if 60 people turn up to camp? Is the site big enough to cater for that many tents, bikes & people?
I only ask as I would be trekking a fair way and wouldn't want to be disappointed to find the site full up or not able to cater.


TIA

When I first spoke to the campsite a couple of months ago they were not fazed about the numbers. They had three groups on bikers last year.

From a quick gander through the links in the details thread, they had 30- 40 there in 1 of the 2 fields with space to spare

Is this the place we stayed at in 2008 for the run round kielder and into scotland that was extremely wet, where Quiff had to take out a mortgage on the way back to buy me a pie?

Dates confirmed with campsite for the weekend 20 /21/22 of June.
Had another chat with the proprietor and the likely numbers should not be a problem.
Please book with the campsite yourselves letting them know it's with the SV650.org for AR14 and you may well receive a discount to the price on the web site, Motorcyclists at £8.00 per person including bike becomes £7.
