All other waste should be placed in a black bin bag and placed in the general waste bin. We do not have the facility to recycle camping gas cylinders, these need to be taken home with you.
Smoking is not permitted in any of the buildings on site. There is a designated smoking area – please ask for this on check-in, if required. Smoking is permitted on the campsites, but we ask that cigarette ends are only disposed of via the appropriate bins available on site and not thrown on the floor. This is particularly important during periods of hot weather, when the ground will be very dry.
We are a family site, so whilst you are permitted to consume alcohol, we ask you to please be respectful of other families. We have the right to ask anyone to leave if their behaviour is not appropriate for a family environment.
We ask that you please keep glass to a minimum around the grounds. Should there be any breakages, the glass needs to be collected and disposed of in an appropriate way. All glass should be recycled in the recycle bin.
Music should not be heard beyond the boundaries of your area and we ask that you please be respectful to other residents. Following our licence terms, we operate a quiet site from 10pm – 8am.
Dogs are permitted on the campsites and should be kept on a lead wherever possible. Owners must respect other campers that may be scared or allergic to dogs and responsibly clear up any mess around the site, disposing of it in on site bins. They are not permitted in any of the onsite buildings. Should you need to bring an assistance dog, please email email@example.com
