Shower toilet and washing facilities
For 2012 we have brand new, purpose built toilet, shower and reception facilities! The building also has a large washing up room, a laundry, a drying room and a visitors information room where there are fridges and freezers just for your use, also, free of charge, mobile phone charging and a microwave. The building is carbon neutral, although we do use a small amount of electricity, it is lit by sun tunnels and the water and underfloor heating is heated using our own timber. We use wool insulation to allow the building to breathe. We also use pure bore hole water, which is regularly tested, it was deemed 'magnificent' by the company that does the testing! This does mean that it does not contain chemicals so it is important to make sure that your water storage containers are clean before filling.
There are five large showers and seven toilet cubicles in both the ladies and gents, which also has urinals. There is a private cubicle in both sides with a wash basin. There are eight, widely spaced basins in each room, giving plenty of room. We have two large family rooms, where preference is given to families during busy times, one has baby changing facilities and both have toddler chairs. There is a fully equipped disabled room, with a shower, toilet and two wash basins. All this is finished off with underfloor heating. The new facilities have been described as 'better than a five star hotel' and we are sure you will not be disappointted!
Laundry and Washing up
The laundry is now in the main building, with two modern washing machines and tumble dryers. The washing up room has five sinks and one that is lower for children to use!
Dustbins and recycling
Behind the loo block is the dustbin area and bins for recycling glass, paper and tins.
The reception now just has freezers with shop goods, milk, bacon, eggs, fresh orange, butter, yogurts, water. Fresh bread is quickly frozen and we now also sell Will's own pork sausages from his home grown Oxford Black and Sandy pigs.
The information room has fridges and freezers that are just for your use. There is also a microwave and telephone charging (all free of charge!)
Telephone and Television
We do not have a pay 'phone on site. We get good 'phone coverage with TMobile, Vodaphone and Orange but other suppliers can be patchy and some have no reception at all. We have free access wifi although like the television the coverage is not good. Please do not rely on getting a good signal for your television, although we have boosters there are parts of the site that they do not reach. For guaranteed coverage we suggest that you use a dish and digibox.
We stock Calor Gas (in various sizes) and Camping Gaz 904 and 907.
