Biblins provides a unique environment for children and young people, as such only schools and recognised children and youth groups can use the site during the Herefordshire Summer Term dates. Recognised children and young groups include uniformed youth groups, sports groups and any official or voluntary group that provides formal or informal learning to those under the age of 25 years.

Other community groups are welcome to book the site at all other times. Individual and family bookings will not be accepted.

Youth, Community & School Groups

Please complete a booking equiry and our admin team will be in touch. Please be aware that bookings are not final until a deposit has been paid.

Family and Household Groups

Please visit the family and household groups section, where there’s additional information as well as an availability search so you can check when pitches are available.

Absolutely! At the Biblins site we have Camp Koodoo, which provides everything you need for a group of up to 36 campers!  And we also have  The Burrow – which is a fantastic undercover sleeping accommodation for up to 19 people.  For a warm summer evening, the roof even slides back!  The Burrow booking also includes a small area for camping for groups who have a few of their own tents, which potentially gives the opportunity for those who haven’t camped before to give it a try – the best of both worlds!

Our longer term plan is to renovate the bunkhouse, which would enable groups to stay on site outside of the usual camping season.

We’ll do whatever we can to enable your group to stay at the Biblins, so if you have any questions, please do get in touch!

Nearest Medical Facilities

We run “off grid” so it’s back to nature. We have a number of solar panels around the site which provide energy for lighting the toilet and shower blocks, but there is no electric hook up or wifi.

If you need an electric point for medical equipment please let us know.

The camp-fire is perhaps one of the most memorable parts of any camp and one of things that often public campsites don’t offer – so many children have never had the experience of toasting marshmallows around a communal campfire.

Firewood is available on-site, with a dedicated sawing and splitting areas by the warden’s cabin.

We do ask that you stick to the existing hearths (each campsite has its own dedicated campfire area), and also please do not forage for firewood in the local woods, as these are designated SSSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) by the Forestry Commission.

Only registered assistance dogs will be allowed to camp or stay in any of the buildings at Biblins.

Along the public footpath you will find dog walkers – all dogs should be kept on a lead and owners should pick up after their dogs. Please report any irresponsible dog owners to the on-site warden.

At Biblins we’re working with a number of local providers who can come onto site and run a whole range of activities for you.

Also, have a look at our “Things to do” link in the menu, which has lots of activities you can do in & around the Biblins site.

Please get in touch – we’re very happy to help you to put together a programme for your visit.

Where possible we encourage campers to be staying in tents. However we understand that for some people a caravan or camper is vital to allow them to access the activities and of course welcome vans in those situations.

If you want to bring a caravan or camper because you don’t have camping equipment, please have a look at The Burrow & Camp Koodoo, which offers everything you need to stay at the Biblins.

Please let us know when making your booking.
