The farm is approached off a side road which joins the two main roads. Access is easy for the largest vehicles. The drive is tarmac, leading right up to the campsite and cars can be parked adjacent to your tent or caravan. There is plenty of room to spare.

We have recently constructed a new toilet and shower block in the style of an American log cabin. Using local and local and reclaimed materials. There are two private toilet / showers, two ladies and two gents cubicles in each of the toilets. The original toilet / shower near the house is still fully accesible for disabled or elderly people.
