Please report to reception upon arrival to advise a member of staff that you have arrived.

On departure, please check-out with a member of staff.

We kindly request that groups leave their site/building in the same condition as when they arrived.

Please check for office opening times which will be displayed outside the office.

A well stocked Providore including drinks, sweets, chocolate, crisp take home souvenirs and ice cream.

Unfortunately we no longer sell bottled gas, but please speak to a member of the duty team for details of local suppliers.

Toilets & Showers

There are three toilet blocks onsite, one on each side of the site and one by the river in the centre of the site.

The Shower block is located behind the main toilet block by the Delph. The shower blocks will be open Friday 18:00-21:00hrs, Saturday 08:00-20:00hrs and Sunday 08:00-13:00hrs. Keys can be obtained from the duty team.

Car Parking

There are three main car parks available for both campers and visitors.

Vehicles should not be parked on camp sites. Please move your vehicles to a car park after unloading.

During large scale events the staff will operate a managed system to ensure traffic flow through the site, we ask that in these instances you bear with us to ensure we can get everyone in and out of the site.

It is recommended that a vehicle is left in the main car park overnight in case of emergencies.


By arrangement with the site manager.

Accidents and Emergencies

All accidents must be reported to Duty Staff and the appropriate forms filled as required by the Scout Association. If the matter requires emergency vehicles then staff must be informed so they can make sure these vehicles will have clear access to the site.
