What time is check in/check out?

You can check in from 12 noon until 9pm. On day of departure you must check out by 11am.

Can I swim in the lake?

We have a small paddling area to cool off in the lake but it is not suitable for swimming.

Can I postpone my trip if the weather forecast is bad?

Unfortunately we have a 72 hour cancellation period, where if you cancel within 72 hours, you will lose your payment. If you give us more than 72 hours’ notice, we will happily keep the payment in credit for you to re book another time, subject to availability. Or you can receive a 50% refund of the full amount.

Can you camp next to the lake?

No unfortunately we no longer offer lakeside camping. Camping is in the woodland area only.

How hard is the ground?

The ground in the woodland is fairly hard so we suggest you have some up-rated pegs to make sure you can secure your tent properly.

We have a simple policy here, please leave your campsite as you found it and be respectful to your neighbours. If you fail in either we will keep your deposit. The management’s decision is final.
