Fire pits and barbecues

Fire pits and barbecues

Nothing beats a real fire when camping

There’s nothing like a real fire to sit beside in the evening. Whether you want to toast marshmallows or cook luscious burgers, you can’t beat a naked flame.

We have a range of fire pits available for hire from Reception, where we also sell the fuel logs and kindling. All of our glamping units each has its own fire pit already provided. 

Important safety notice

You must never place a fire pit or barbecue inside a tent, caravan, vehicle or glamping accommodation. In addition to the fire risk, fuel logs, gas or charcoal give off carbon monoxide and must be burned outside for sufficient ventilation. If burned inside, carbon monoxide can quickly reach dangerous levels and poisoning can be fatal.

You may only use fire pits supplied by us or gas barbeques. Disposable barbeques are not allowed. Please ensure you are following all the safety rules at all times.

  • All fire pits and barbecues must be kept off the ground to prevent any damage to the grass or surroundings. 
  • No fires are allowed on the open ground.
  • They must be lit away from gas supplies or anything combustible.
  • They must not be placed over astroturf or glamping decking.
  • Once lit, they must not be left unattended for any length of time.
  • Only the briquettes available at Reception can be used in fire pits.
  • Under NO circumstances can you burn natural wood, logs or any wood collected around the park.
  • All ash must be disposed of in the appropriate bin store containers.

Why you must use our safety briquettes

This is a safety issue. The logs we supply are Forestry Commission approved, specially made briquettes that burn steadily and are less likely to spit out hot embers. These briquettes are clean and easy to handle, they light easily, generate high levels of heat and create less ash, making them more carbon efficient and eco-friendly. 

Communal area for small groups

If you are in a small group, please use the communal fire pit/barbecue area. It’s located near the Pitch & Putt entrance. 

Anyone found breaking any of these rules or conditions will be asked to leave the park immediately with no refund.

Please treat the park with respect so that we can continue to allow fire pits and BBQs. Thank you.
