The site was originally established in the late 1960s from a single, sloping field. Subsequent owners (there have been three) have each put their mark on the sites development including terracing, planting and landscaping. Four separate enclosures have been created using traditional and ornamental hedging which provide 'wildlife corridors' around the park and essential windbreaks and privacy screening for pitches. Certain areas are still allowed to grow 'wild', encouraging native species onto the park, whilst the main camping areas are well maintained grass. Features include one of the original, and now well established, Bellamy Butterfly Bars, bird and owl boxes and a wildlife pond. Park lighting which is kept to a minimum to encourage stargazing.
