BBQ & Fires

General Fire Safety

Please take care with fire, especially when young children are around, and take time to familiarise yourself with your nearest fire point.

If you have hired a fire-pit and wood, it will be waiting for you when you arrive and please remember to site it at least 5 meters from your tent, pod or caravan. We also recommend that you have a container of water close by in case of emergency. You can use it to put out your fire before you go to bed.

For tents & bell tents we will place your fire-pits on the fireproof slab provided, please dont move it elsewhere. We will also collect them when you have finished with them.

Marshmallows and sticks will be available from Georges if you require them.

BBQ & Fire pits

With the recent hot summers we know that you want to enjoy yourself and eating outdoors is very much a part of that. We ask that you are responsible with flames, grass will burn and spread fire very quickly,

Make sure that fires are out before you go to sleep and allow the wood/coals to cool overnight. Please dispose of the fires in the burn proof bin provided.

Alternatively you can hire fire-pits and wood from us and let us take care of the disposal.

Disposable BBQ

Sorry, disposable BBQ's are no longer allowed on site. We have had too many issues with burnt grass, burnt tents and a couple of sleeping bags.

Many apologies to the responsible guests. .

Electric cables

This applies mainly to our seasonal pitches but can you ensure that you vacate your caravan after your stay that your lead is unplugged and placed within your awning. This is important to prevent any issues if there are electrical problems while ypur caravan is unattended.

In the event of fires in unattended caravans your insurance company will usually not entertain a claim.

Naked Flames

Absolutely naked flames to be placed in or around awnings or tents. In addition, no heaters to be left on in awnings, especially while the caravan/tent is unoccupied.

For the same reason we don't allow smoking in our Glamping tents or Pods.

Fires can start really quickly and you wont be insured (let alone the risk of danger to you and your family/guests).

How do we deal with a fire-emergency?

Whilst we’re on the topic of fires – should you believe there to be an emergency please use an extinguisher from one of the Fire-Points to deal with the problem. The alarm will sound the moment you lift the lid on the extinguisher boxes.

Each field has its own emergency assembly point clearly signposted and indicated on your site map.

In case of a major emergency, please make your way there.

Any incident MUST be reported to reception and recorded in our Accident book
