I am delighted to announce an important moment in the history of Sparkhayes campsite. No not the pandemic - it's card payments! We are now able to accept debit and credit card payments with our shiny new mobile card reader.
So far all is going well with our cautious re-opening and we thank our customers for their patience and understanding at this unprecedented time. The hostelries in Porlock have been welcoming back customers this week and the village has a cheerful air, let's hope the summer season continues well and that we can increase the facilities we have on offer. Stay safe everyone!
