Additional notes

Sole use of the campsite is not guaranteed. No telephone on site, but good mobile phone signal throughout campsite. Bridle path runs through camp site. Absolutely no dogs on campsite with the exception of guide dogs. Water is sourced from a bore hole and filtered. Site is almost always sheep free. Due to narrow access road, absolutely no coaches (although minibus access is fine). For further up-to-date information about the campsite go to the District website.
