The site consists of a Main Mess Hall with a fully equipped catering kitchen at one end and staffroom at the other, 7 bunkhouses and two shower/toilet facilities.
In each of the 7 bunkhouses are either 4 or 6 bunks. (a total of 36). The bunks have mattresses, but own sleeping bags are necessary.
The bunkhouses have been re-wired and fully insulated, whilst still maintaining the rustic exterior.
There are three toilet/shower facilities, including Gents, Ladies and a Disabled/Staff block.
The Mess Hall has been completely refurbished, insulated, and had new double glazed windows and a hard wearing floor fitted. It acts as a meeting/dining/class room, and also has a staff room at one end for a bit of peace and quiet!
All hot water is supplied via our new state of the art solar heating panels on the Mess Hall and toilet block roofs and we even sell our surplus electricity back to the National Grid.
There is also a telephone land line for when mobiles don’t work – 01694 781418.
In 1979 a former Army Hut was bought to serve as a Mess Hall – cum – meeting dining and/or class room. (has a staff room too!) It’s rather like the Tardis!
There are two camping areas and as many as 50 two person tents have been erected when being used – as it is very regularly – as a D.o.E base for Bronze and Silver awards.
The main toilet and shower block was updated in 2018.
We also have a wheelchair accessible bunkhouse with shower/toilet facilities.
In 2011, The Wooden Spoon charity financed the installation of a wheelchair accessible pathway and picnic area.
