Silky Oaks Camping - 25-03-2016
Another new venue!! Camping weekend at Silky Oaks ! 25– 27/03/2016
Silky Oaks Camp Site, Greyton, is watched over by grandfather pines and sentries of Silky Oaks. It is the perfect place to nurture your weary soul.
There are many shaded campsites in secluded nooks and along the river’s edge for your tent, caravan or camper.
The resort is Solar powered and the colourful bathrooms are warmly lit and the water heated by the power of the sun. The organic food gardens are fed by grey water systems that come from the bathrooms, so only biodegradable products are used.
Silky Oaks endeavour to uphold a sustainable, low impact, low carbon footprint, environmentally responsible lifestyle. The aim is to eradicate the invasive alien species that currently populate the area and to re-establish indigenous vegetation, which will in turn create a natural eco-system for wildlife and humans alik
With wide open space there is ample area to practice your skills with boule, cricket, Frisbee or ball kicking. If you are into sport fishing bring your rod along as there are plenty of fish in the river, and there are lovely trials for hiking or horse riding. Canoes are available to hire or bring your own along for leisure time on the river.
Lovely sandy beaches and swimming places in the river make this one of the best settings that you can wish for.
Visit the beautiful little town of Greyton just 2km away and experience some of the local culture.
Quaint thatched cottages are scattered along the oak-lined streets and you can browse the local art galleries and craft shops or relax at one of the restaurants or open-air cafes and enjoy a cup of coffee.
It is huge! There are 20 sites available accommodating 6 persons per site. Unfortunately there is no cottages available and only camping or caravans are accommodated. As it’s an eco-environment and run on solar power there is no electricity points.
