You may use the communal fire pit area next to the Beehive if you’d like more than 6 for a gathering. Please no groups to gather on one pitch

The collection of wood, stones, flowers and all other natural landscape materials from around the site for any reason is strictly prohibited. It all forms part of the delicate eco system which maintains our rich wildlife.

We have spacious, well equipped washing up facilities in the Beehive kitchen, please do not wash up on your pitch or in the meadows, it causes damage to the grass.

Only 2 tents per pitch and please only pitch your tent on the mown area not the long grass.
