Rules and Regs

Stay Wild - Please Take Note!

 

We try not to have too many rules and regulations here - but obviously there are some things we must point out as a priority, in order that the guests and wildlife stay safe and also that the local residents, our neighbours, are respected at all times.  Staying here is like being a guest in the wildlife's habitat, so please understand you are a visitor into their space.

First and Foremost - this is a QUIET SITE.  No loud music please and please try your best to curb any unnecessary screaming and shouting etc, particularly later on in the evening.  Sound travels very far in our village and the local residents & other guests are here because they enjoy the peace and quiet and may want to see some wildlife!  Please don’t spoil it for them or yourself!  We operate a strict no-noise after 10pm policy.  If you are unable to adhere to this policy, you may be asked to leave. If anything is bothering you whilst you are here, please text us immediately.   Please be especially quiet if you are accessing or leaving the site late at night, i.e. coming back from the pub!

 

Arrival and Departures

 Please do not arrive before the 3pm check-in time unless by prior agreement.  The access lane to the site is commonly used by dog walkers etc - please drive slowly along it and be very careful.  There is a passing place just over half way down on the left.  We require you to leave by 11.00am on the day of your departure please.

Chemical Toilets - VERY IMPORTANT

There is no chemical toilet waste disposal on site.  No wet-wipes down the toilets PLEASE. (even “biodegradable” ones please).  We are on a private sewage system here, not the mains and either of these rules being broken could completely ruin or block up our very sensitive system.  This would be very bad and we thank you for taking these rules very seriously indeed.  Please do not put any harsh chemicals such as bleach or toilet chemicals down the drain or toilet at all.

Motorhomes & Caravans

We do not accept Motorhomes or Caravans here, sorry.  Campervans and Tents only.  Please use the toilets provided.

Campfires 

Campfires are allowed and encouraged, but please only in the designated fire-pit areas.  These are safe areas chosen for location to reduce any risk and for prevention of light pollution.  If you need any help with fire-wood, kindling or firelighters, just give us a shout - please only burn wood purchased on site.  Please never break any live trees or plants, or use wood you might see lying around.  These are most probably piles of branches, purposely left there as “bug hotels” and are not for burning please!  We can provide a metal firepit and tripod and grill if required at no extra charge.  When you are finished with your fire, please use the metal bin lid provided to cover and extinguish the fire - do not pour water or sand over it.  WE do provide metal ash bins and shovels too - please never dispose of ash anywhere on site, we will take care of this.  If you are unsure or not confident how to start or look after a campfire, we will be happy to help.

BBQs

BBQs are fine, but never directly on the grass please.  There should be some blocks on your pitch that you can use if needed.  If not and you need something, just let us know and we’ll sort it out for you.  If you are having a fire of any type, please never leave it unattended and always make sure there is a fire bucket nearby and preferably some water too, in case you do need to control it safely.  Please never have large fires either - there is no need.  Doing so is dangerous and also causes a lot of light pollution too.  Our site is only suitable for small, contained camp fires please.

NEVER take a lit BBQ or any other fire into a tent/awning or Campervan.

  • Pitches - Please note that due to fire regulations you must pitch at least three, preferably six, metres away from anyone else. Unfortunately if this rule is not adhered to you may be asked to re-pitch (and no one likes that).  You will find fire buckets, blankets & extinguishers in prominent places around the site, please make yourself aware of where these are located. 

  • Please adhere to the maximum of 5mph at all times when on site.

  • Please keep dogs on leads throughout the site and please no dogs past the no entry signs.  Please be courteous and always clean up after your dog. If you are wanting to bring more than 2 dogs with you, please contact us first to discuss.  Dogs are not allowed on Bramble Brook at all due to the closeness to our animals. 

  • Wherever possible, please use eco-friendly products for washing and washing up.  Again this makes a huge difference to our sensitive, private sewage-treatment system, which relies on living bacteria to work properly and too many harsh chemicals kill them off and prevent them from doing their job!

  • Please recycle where possible and put in the Recycle bins provided, Please also at the end of your stay, please dispose of any normal rubbish in the General Waste Bin.  There are two bins here, please take the time to use them correctly - Mixed Recycling and General Waste.  They are clearly marked.  You will be given bin bags on arrival, but if you need more, please let us know.  Never leave food waste outside at night!  Please leave all glass in the boxes provided and we collect and recycle.

  • Please be aware of the uneven ground around the site.  Animals dig holes all the time and there can be stones sticking out etc.  Keep your eyes peeled!

  • Please always keep all gates closed. 

  • Please do not enter the Alpaca, Pygmy Goat or Chicken fields under any circumstance - particularly children.  Supervised animal experiences can be booked directly on site or by contacting us.

  • Strictly no kite flying on site - please be aware of overhead power-lines on certain pitches and be careful not to play with any aerial toys in their vicinity.​

  • Most of all - have fun! Relax, Unwind and Luxuriate!  If anything is missing from your stay, please let us know - we value any and all feedback and will always be looking to improve our offering and facilities in ways even we probably haven’t thought of yet and we rely on your feedback to find these out!

  • Please if you notice anything at any time that gives you any cause for concern, please let us know immediately and it will be addressed.
