Campfire Circle

The campfire circle is located in a sheltered area to prevent sparks over tents and is situated so as to make it accessible to both house and field users. Following consideration of it’s environmental impact the fire size has been reduced and is clearly bounded to ensure fires are of a size suitable to the Guide Centre environs. The end result is a more intimate and safe experience for users.

  • House guests and campsite guests have shared access of the campfire circle.
  • Use of the campfire circle is FREE to those with house and/or campsite bookings but must be pre-booked.
  • For those with campfire circle bookings only, access will be made available to the outside shower/toilet block for handwashing and toilet facilities.
