Camp Fires terms and conditions
Campfires are only allowed in one of the designated camp fire pitches and must be prebooked (on a first come first served basis).
Fires are not allowed under any circumstances in any container above the ground such as a BBQ on any other part of the land. Failure to comply with this will result in you being asked to leave. (A charcoal BBQ is allowed for the purpose of cooking only but must be at least 18 inches off the ground)
The management have the right to refuse a campfire if weather conditions are not suitable (such as high wind) or if there is any other assessed risk to safety.
Fire wardens will be monitoring campfires but as the designated adult (over 18) signing these terms – you are agreeing to be your group’s fire warden, which means that you will:
- Be responsible for all members of your party’s safety and supervise the fire at all times
- Be also responsible for any other person that comes within the proximity of your campfire
- Indemnify the site owners from any damage or injury caused by your campfire
- Ensure that all members of your party understand how to act responsibly around a fire
- Ensure that any camping unit is a minimum of 6m away from the campfire.
- Ensure that you are not intoxicated to avoid compromising your ability to act responsibly and quickly in your safety duties
- Ensure there is a bucket of water or sand (supplied by yourself) kept by the lit fire at all times
- Ensure that the fire is fully extinguished before being left unattended
- Use only suitable fire lighting items such as fire lighters and wood/paper kindling
- Ensure that only ‘clean’ suitable wood is used (free from chemicals, finishes or inclusions such as nails) Plastics or metals must not be burned.
- Ensure that the fire stays within the centre of the fire pit and does not exceed a modest size.
- Ensure that before vacating, cold ashes are spread within the pit and debris is removed
Particular attention must be made to the safety of children around your campfire and around others campfires. The parent or guardian is solely responsible for the safety of the children within their care and they are asked to ensure that children do not go into other party’s camping areas and stay a safe distance away from any fires.
Prior to arriving, please make yourself familiar with how to apply first aid in relation to burns and bring appropriate first aid materials with you. If you require advice please speak to the owners/wardens on duty.
Failure to comply will result in the campers being asked to leave the site with no refund.
Please remember we have a campsite rule of quiet time after 10.30pm and this may apply in relation to social gatherings at campfires too.
The issuing of these terms on booking confirmation emails and subsequent correspondence is deemed as acceptance of all the rules by the camper and their party.
You will be asked to sign in agreement to these terms on arrival
