The parking system at our country parks

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

Parking

Pay anytime

You can pay at any time during your stay.

Blue Badge Holders

Blue badge holders are currently exempt from paying for parking in our Country Parks; please speak to a member of staff whilst on site to validate your free parking.

Payment options

  • Card - all of our machines take card payments (contactless and chip’n’pin).
  • Cash - most of our machines take cash (coins and £5 notes) please note that machines do not give change.
  • 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
