The campsite is open most times of the year. Whilst not fully-serviced, we do try to provide the minimum basic facilities to a good standard. There's an outdoor washing-up area and cold water standpipe behind the Hall. For a nightly extra £2 per person (must be booked through our website) you can dry out your gear and freshen up in the Hall's two shower cubicles and drying room, accessed via the rear door of the Hall. There's free wifi to be had from the Hall's foyer. If your dog's coming along, please pitch on the grassed area directly behind the hall as Fido isn't allowed on the camping field - it's open to a children's playground. In summer months don't forget your midge repellent!
The Hall's toilets
are open to the public 24/7 and located just off the foyer. They comprise two ladies cubicles and a single gents cubicle and urinal. There are also wheelchair-accessible and baby changing facilities. For larger groups
, there's space for around eight to ten 'family' tents or 15 - 20 small tents. Best to check in advance with the bookings secretary
that the field's fully available for your group. Although we don't allow vehicles and caravans onto the field, you can hand push trailers and trailer tents via the side accessway (narrowest point 2.3m/7'6"). Limited parking is to be found next to the public telephone box and on the roadside in the village centre.
Food and drinkUnless you're arriving during the village store opening hours, you'll need to bring your own food supplies.
For groups of four or more, our Richard can usually rustle up a delicious cooked breakfast and/or evening meal. Just email him your proposed date(s) of stay and size of party at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if he's available.
