The parking system at our country parks

We operate an easy to pay system, no tickets are issued

Pay and leave
Drive in

No ticket needed. Your registration number is noted automatically.

Pay and leave

Pay at the machines using your car registration, return to your car and drive out.

Payment options

  • Card - all of our machines take card payments (contactless and chip’n’pin).
  • Cash - most of our machines only take card payments. At some parks a cash machine may be available (no change given), see signs on site for details.
  • Annual Pass - Save money and time with a great value for money annual parking pass. The system will recognise your car and open the barriers (no need to visit a pay station). The more you visit us, the more you save.

Coming soon - GLIDE App’. The benefits of using our parking app are:

  • you don't have to queue at the pay station at busy times
  • you don't need to carry any cash
Drive out

Our system matches the payment and the registration number and the exit barrier opens.
