  • Two 6 ring gas cookers with oven

  • Large upright freezer

If you require anything that is not included in this list please do enquire, we may have what you need on site. Otherwise, please bring things that are not on this list with you. 

We operate a 'leave me as you find me' policy. If groups staying on site attempt to leave the site in the same clean state as they found it in then the groups following your own will very much appreciate it. 


Other cooking and dining facilities are available in the form of the Sunley Room and the Kitchenette. The Sunley Room is a smaller, but more comfortable, cosey room capable of seating around 40 people, who can be catered for in the Kitchenette.

The Kitchenette and the Sunley Room are separate from the Dining Room and Kitchen, so two different groups can use the two facilities and not have to share equipment or appliances.

Many groups that stay on site get Tesco to deliver their food requirements. Make sure that your food is not delivered before you plan to arrive.

Things that you will need to bring with you include:

  • Tea towells

  • Aprons

  • Cling film and foil

  • Black sacks

  • Multi-purpose cleanser

  • Dish cloths

  • Cooking oil

  • Matches

Dining Room

Our dining room can comfortably seat 80 people at meal times, or 180 for a seminar or similar. 

The dining room comes fully equipped with an over head projector, sound desk and even underfloor heating. The kitchen servery opens directly into the dining room.

In the dining room there's also a fantastic 6 player (or more!) table tennis table and a pool table (50p per game charge).

Sunley Room and Kitchenette

The Sunley room and kitchenette are perfect for smaller groups or families. Larger groups often use the Sunley room as a more comfortable breakout room for quieter moments or watching movies on the big screen. Just like the dining room it has a sound desk and over head projector. 

The kitchenette is attached to the Sunley room via a serving hatch and is suitable for catering for groups of 35 or less, or making teas and coffees for larger groups.


We have 11 bunkhouse style dormitories of various sizes, ranging from 2 beds to 12. All of our rooms are en-suite (toilets and showers) and all have under-floor heating.

When booking please liaise with a member of our staff to help us decide how many dormitories you require.

Outdoor facilities

Our sports field is right outside the dining room and is big enough for lots of popular sports. The field comes equipped with football goals, and is also home to quite a few mole hills and rabbit holes!

Our dodge ball court is nearby which is where we play lots of games like tennis, dodge ball and tchoukball, as well as many others. A small portable tennis net is available if requested before you arrive.

Our sports barn is a short walk away and is perfect for those few days when it rains.
