Campfires and BBQ'S 

Are allowed, we ask for you to be cautious and sensible when making fires, and to respect the area and other campers by not building fires all over the field, but PLEASE  use the designated areas. Fires must be 6 metres away from your and other campers tents. During windy weather we may not allow campfires due to safety issues.

There is a nightly charge for a campfire, includes one box of wood, usually lasts for  about 2 or 3 hours.

All fires and BBQ's should be allowed to die down before 11pm and be fully extinguished by the time you go to bed.

Do not put hot BBQ's in or near the bin, they must be placed in the steel box provided.

Rules for campfires are displayed in the toilets and laundry room, please read them.

 

 

Rubbish/waste

We recycle all rubbish, and we ask for your help by keeping all glass, cans and plastic drinking bottles seperate from the rest of your rubbish. There are seperate bags for plastic, steel cans, cardboard and paper, and any aluminium cans or BBQ''s. 

Please put all you glass in the RED bin provided, squash all your cans and put them  in the large white bags. Squash your plastic bottles too please, they take up less space in the bin.
