Alcohol and drugs – if it’s illegal outside then it’s still illegal inside the campsite. We are unable to condone anything that is illegal on the campsite, however we are not the law and we do not arbitrarily monitor everything that is going on. (As long as there are not specific complaints). Please don’t allow alcohol to affect your judgment, particularly because you are camping next to fire and deep water.

Fire – yes you can have a fire but please be very responsible and respectful. We allow open fires in the fire pits, camp kitchens and off ground braziers only. No fires or BBQs directly on the grass please – ask and we will provide some bricks to place your BBQs on. There is no charge to borrow one of our braziers, but please be sensible and only light fires in low wind. Don’t not allow sparks to blow around, or light fires by the long grass. You can buy kiln dried wood from us that we sell here onsite. It is very important that you only burn this low moisture kiln dried wood, as it produces a cleaner burn and has reduces the large amounts of smoke. Should you see any fire hazards please raise the alarm immediately. Please make sure all fires are extinguished before going to bed or off our if used for breakfast.
