Located at the top of Bowley campsite, the field has a good mixture of facilities. As well as having the Bushcraft Area, Little Bowley and Tipi Village, you have some great areas for camping. The site is good for medium sized groups as well as Duke of Edinburgh expeditions

There are two options for camping in this field now; you can bring everything with you as normal, or you can go for an ‘equipped’ option.  If you take this option, we provide a wooden cabin which contains an oven, hob, sink and fridge/freezer.  There is a selection of cooking equipment (pots, pans, cutlery, etc.) and a table and chairs.  This may well replace the requirement for your normal mess tent and communal cooking facilities, meaning that you can concentrate on everything else you need to bring.  Please note that, although there may be a small number of eating utensils and crockery included, this is not likely to be enough for your whole group.

There is ample car parking available towards the bottom end of the Training Field on the hard standing ground – please keep all vehicles here or on the main car park.  We ask that customers do not drive any vehicles on to the camping fields.

Altar fire barrels are available outside the Den – feel free to borrow the barrels and grills, but please dispose of your ashes responsibly, and return the barrels and grills to the storage area on departure.
