Thanks Dave,

Do you know whether we have to pay cash upfront, or a deposit for 2013? I know I can't afford the cost of a pitch for next year, until I've been their, this year?

BTW.

There website is off line.

Unfrotunately, to secure the pitch you need to pay straight away.

As far as I know, you have to book the star party nights on the phone or in person (I could be wrong on this).

Whilst people book for a variety of stay lengths, most people will include the Friday and Saturday nights. Why not book a pitch for those two nights now (£26) then book any other nights you're after later, when you can afford it?.
