Payment information

Payment information can be found in our terms and conditions.

Shop

The onsite shop will be open on request. The shop sells souvenirs and a limited range of sweets and drinks. You can pay by card, cash or cheque.

Drinking water

Taps that are not drinking water are labelled.

Rubbish, recycling and glass

Please dispose of rubbish in the big bins to the side of the main house. Here you will also find recycling bins for plastic packaging, cardboard, food and drink cartons, glass and paper. We support sustainable practices at Glenbrook by being as eco-friendly as possible. Please help us to continue this work during your stay.

Smoking

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.

Alcohol

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.

Glass

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.

Noise

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

Dogs are permitted on the campsites and should be kept on a short 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 onsite bins. They are not permitted in any of the onsite buildings. Should you need to bring an assistance dog, please email glenbrook@girlguiding.org.uk

Campfires and BBQs

Disposable BBQs on or with stands are permitted in open spaces in the grounds. Hard ground is available for you to use where possible or place the BBQ on top of an altar fire. There are altar fires and a plentiful supply of wood around the site that can be moved to your site. Please dispose of cold ash discretely under a hedge ensuring that all non-compostable matter is removed first and at the end of your stay please return any unused wood to the woodpiles. The campfire circle is free to use but please liaise with other users.

Vehicles on site

There is a 5mph speed limit on site. Please observe this at all times. Vehicles cannot be taken onto any grass areas. There is one parking space for the flat next to Derwent. Any other vehicles should be parked in the car park past the office or in the car park at the main entrance.

First Aid

During your visit you will be primarily responsible for the first aid of your group. If you need support, please phone the duty mobile on 07852 253356 and a member of the team will talk you through the first aid required (if applicable). Should the incident be more serious, we will support in whatever way we are able to, but you must contact the emergency services before notifying the duty manager. You will need to give the address (Glenbrook Activity Centre, Hope Road, Bamford, Hope Valley S33 0AL), the name of the accommodation you are in, or your location on the site.

We have a defibrillator on site; this is located on the west end of Derwent building.
