FIRES Allocated areas, and the sizes of the fire pits must be kept to. Please do not light a fire ANYWHERE else. Wood and kindling must not at any time be taken from the woods or from any of the log piles – we coppice our wood carefully to provide sustainable energy for the houses, but we are happy to supply for campers at a cost. If laying wood is collected it WILL BE CHARGED FOR. We try to maintain a good relationship with the neighbouring landowners so please help us by NOT collecting wood from their land or from the footpaths. -Fires and barbecues must never be left unsupervised and must be put out before being left for the night. -Please exercise additional care during high wind, being aware of the distance from your fire to your own and your neighbour’s tent. Fires and barbecues are used entirely at your own risk.

PLANTS AND TREES must be respected, please avoid children pulling on them and damaging them. Green wood and branches should not be torn off for burning or games!

Please crush packaging as much as possible. The sites must be left as found, with all waste removed. Smokers must use an ashtray, please ask for one – don’t throw butts in the fires or on the ground – they are not biodegradable! smoking is not permitted in the toilets.

DOGS must be kept on a lead at all times, waste must be cleared by the owner. Pets are permitted in all camping pitches, and some of our cabins and glamping units where available. Some units are pet free. Please ask before booking to check availability of a pet free accommodation.

Whilst we make every effort to ensure a safe campsite we cannot accept responsibility for your possessions or personal injuries sustained whilst on the property or using fires. Agreement to stay on-site indicates agreement to these terms which are also displayed outside the campsite office. Failure to comply may result in your party being asked to leave the site without reimbursement.
