The fields are level with some protection with trees and a small copse.
There are toilets, cold water basins and a drinking water standpipe. Please note...There is no hot water or electricity on site , even in the toilet block so a torch is essential.
Nearby there is a shepherds hut available for hire in its own small garden.
Dogs are allowed on site as long as they remain under control at all times and not a problem to local livestock or other visitors. The owner retains the right to ask owners to leave if problems arise.
