Additional notes

Our HQ is situated in the centre of the picturesque town of Ellesmere, in the heart of Shropshire's Lake District, close to all amenities. The main building is suitable for wet weather accommodation only, but the large grassy area adjacent is large enough for a group of up to 50 campers.''For an extra charge we can provide tents and equipment.
