Facilities

Water

Mains water is piped to all buildings on site and to two water outlets adjacent to the main track, which are used for filling water carriers. As water is a chargeable commodity all users are asked to help conserve the supply and make sure all the taps are switched off after use.

Sanitation

This consists of a purpose built block building divided into male and female sides with WC’s, wash hand basins and urinals. There is a separate leaders toilet with its own basin.

Electricity

All buildings on site have electricity. The toilet block has lighting controlled by motion sensors inside and a dawn to dusk sensor outside. There are also double sockets and shaver points in both sides. Electricity is included in the cost of camping fees but metered and charged at the prevailing rate for those using indoor accommodation.

Rubbish

Plastic sacks should be brought with you whether you are camping or using the buildings for all non-burnable rubbish. These should be taken away with you when you leave and the area you have used left in a clean and tidy state, as you would wish to find it; there is a public tip within 5km from the site.  A litter check should be made by the Warden before you leave or by the leader in charge if out of season.

Fires

Fires are permitted in designated hard standing areas on all camping sites. In addition there is a large campfire area near to the Wardens hut with log seating. This area is for campfires only and should not be used for cooking. All ash from cooking fires and the campfire should be removed to the marked ash pit and the fire areas left clean and tidy when you leave.

Wood Supply

Despite the site being within mature woodland, the supply of available wood is not inexhaustible. Fallen timber is usually readily available at the beginning of the season but becomes less so as the year progresses. All users are therefore asked not to light and maintain unnecessary fires. Trees should not be felled or lopped under any circumstances and whilst fallen timber can be collected from the top wood area beyond the site boundary, axes or saws must not be taken into that area. Fallen timber should be brought back to your camping area before chopping/sawing.

Available Equipment

There is a supply of necessary equipment available to all site users that includes spades, wheelbarrows, brushes, mops, buckets etc. All equipment is available on the understanding that it is returned to its correct storage place in a clean condition. All breakages must be paid for.

Car Parking

Whilst it is expected that vehicles have to be loaded and unloaded as close as possible to the area of use, once this has taken place they should be left in the designated car parking areas at either the top or bottom of the site.
