Main field

The main camping field is the central field. It is well maintained and can accommodate up to two hundred campers at any one time and is suitable for groups of any size – from individuals to small groups and larger camps. Around the perimeter there are ten wooden shelters which can be used for cooking or for storing equipment. Each site is provided with an altar fire which should be used for building fires. There are fresh drinking water taps in each corner of the field. There is also a supply of timber that can be used for fires.

Toilets and showers

Situated to the west of the site is the toilet block, containing separate ladies and gents flush toilets, washhand basins and hot showers. One toilet has suitable access for wheelchairs. Outside there are facilities for washing dishes.
