The rate is £30 min for one person plus £10 per additional person in the same group.) Please note that we no longer offer sleeping bag hire, we provide pillows / cases and towels, but guest would need to provide their own sleeping bags.

The barn is south-facing double-glazed French windows and a mezzanine floor with 1x single and 1x double mattresses. On the ground floor, there's a bunk bed with seating / fold-out double bed and a separate sofa plus table and chairs. The ground floor also has a toilet, a separate shower and a kitchenette with gas hob, microwave, sink, toaster, cooking and eating utensils etc. this will sleep up to 4 people. The rear door opens to a garden area with seating and table.


Camping Pitches There are a limited number of tent pitches available in the barn garden, which have access to the shower / toilet in the outbuilding. We advise pre-booking of pitches wherever possible. Please note that this is a basic facility and is only suitable for backpackers. There is no vehicle or cycle access and we cannot accept baggage deliveries or pick-ups for the camp area.
