Can I bring my own firepit and wood?

Yes, provided that…

  • …your firepit will actually protect the grass from damage (not all firepits are suitable for camping).
  • …you ask a staff member to empty your firepit for you (please don’t dump ashes or embers in bins or hedges).
  • …your wood is certified firewood. Never burn garden cuttings/timber off-cuts which create lots of sparks and smoke – which can be toxic.
  • …you extinguish your firepit before midnight.

Will there be an onsite caterer during my stay?

Don’t count on it!  Sometimes we arrange street food vendors on summer weekends, but we can’t make any guarantees for external caterers.  If caterers have been arranged during your stay, you will be emailed details in the week leading up to your arrival  In the past we’ve enjoyed food including: pizzas, hog roasts, BBQs, Caribbean, and good old fish ‘n’ chips!

Is there an onsite shop?

No, we only sell firewood on site.  The nearest shops are:

  • Post Office Store – Ivinghoe LU79EP (0.6 miles)
  • Mason’s Premier – Pitstone LU79AT (1.1 miles)
  • Closest Supermarket – Tesco, Tring HP235NB (4.2 miles)

Is there a communal kitchen and fridge freezer?

Yes the communal kitchen compromises of washing up sinks, microwaves, kettles and fridge freezer*.  There’s also a coin operated washing machine.

* Fridge/freezer space can be limited so don’t count on it!  We recommend bringing a cool box and using our freezer to re-freeze your ice packs.

  • They are intended for food storage only.  Do not leave alcohol in them, it will be removed.
  • All food stored in the fridge/freezers must be bagged and labelled so remember to bring a marker pen.  Any unlabelled food will be removed and binned. Sorry!
