Gorgeous views, lovely venue. Although weather was horrible it was the perfect wedding reception venue. Tents were great fun staying overnight and had a lazy Saturday day time, before more festivities on Saturday night.

Stayed in a yurt with wood burner and had all we needed. The owners and their crew are lovely people, Lainie especially (My 7-year-old daughter asked for that special mention but I agree absolutely!) and very relaxed, willing to listen and do whatever's possible. River 50 metres away and a 15 minute walk into Arundel. Interesting mix of 'working' castle,...

This is the 2nd year that my husband and I have been to stay at Billycan and we love it. It is so relaxed and the setting is breath taking - who wouldn't want to look up at the clear sky at night lit up with stars and only hear the sound of wildlife? The set up is really different...

We've been spending one w/e a year meeting the same group of friends and family for 5yrs+ and have gone to some highly recommended sites, but this was easily the best. The way the yurts/tents are well spread out gives privacy when you want it and the communal kitchen/cooking washing facilities are excellent. Superbly equipped. Relaxed feel. Footie pitch. Great...

We've just returned from Billycan camping and loved it! We were celebrating my fathers 70th birthday and our group ranged in age from 20months to 70! Everyone had a fantastic time and we so enjoyed the "freedom" it have the children allowing us to sit, chat and play charades with a glass of red wine around the fire! It seems...

Just celebrated our first wedding anniversary with a weekend at Billycan and it was truly lovely. It's a small site as campsites go and the long grass and positioning of the tents ensures an element of privacy. Each pretty tent has it's own picnic table and fire/BBQ pit, as well as access to the communal space and campfire.The toilets and...

We have just come back from a weekend at Billy can camping and can honestly say we had a lovely time. We usually take our own tent and equipment but as we were going with family and friends with children we thought it would be easier to go somewhere the tents and equipment were provided. We were right, it was...

“The yurts offer a fireplace indoors to help for especially chilly nights, but are designed for larger groups. Tents closer to the loo building will make it easier if you need to run out in the middle of the night.”
