The new showers. Three cubicles this size and one larger to accomodate disabled users.
Electricity supply – unfortunately we are not connected to the mains electricity supply. All electricity is supplied via an on-site 38kVA generator. Electricity points have been made available to most of the site, obviously these will only be functional when the generator is in operation.
There will be a charge for use of the generator, please refer to our price list for cost of usage. Please note that the charge for generator use may increase without notice if the cost of diesel fuel significantly increases.
Note that the Warden will start and stop the generator as required, just let him know your requirements in good time.
If you require use of the showers then you will also have to book the generator as the shower heaters and pumps are electrically powered.
Fires – fires are only allowed on the fire bases provided, please ask if you wish for fires in the backwoods camping area.
We will be installing more firebases around the campsite in time for the 2012 season.
There is usually a good supply of wood available in our wood pile.
Waste Disposal – All waste must be taken away with you. The local refuse disposal trucks do not visit our site.
Cars – are allowed onto the camping areas for loading and unloading only, at the wardens discretion. All vehicles must be removed from the camping area to the car park as soon as loading/unloaded has been completed.
Please note that if the ground is very soft then cars will not be allowed onto the camping areas.
Cars may be parked on the family field at the discretion of the warden.
There is a strict speed limit of 5mph, please adhere to this to avoid accidents.
