Set in an open valley, the park is laid out in terraces and there are some areas of undulation. Close to the site entrance, there is a small arrivals parking area, which is on a slight slope and laid in tarmac. Also just after the reception, there is a further small parking area on level concrete at the front.
RECEPTION & CENTRAL AMENITIES BUILDING
There is a concrete step of about 8" high and then a right-angle turn to a fixed concrete ramp leading to the reception entrance. There is a handrail on one side of the ramp and a wall on the other. At the top of the ramp it levels out and the tourist information leaflets are positioned here. Then there is a raised door threshold of approximately 3" high into the reception and small shop.
The reception and shop are all on one level with the service counters all set at 3ft high, and low shelving in some areas for ease of use by visitors. Non-glare, non-flicker lighting is provided in reception and shop. The reception is only open when manned and staff are always willing to assist.
PITCH AREAS AND PARK GROUNDS
All pitch areas can be fully accessed by car on tarmac or grass roads, and have space for parking for one car provided on the pitch. Minimal lighting is provided around the park, which is kept to a minimum in line with the park’s environmental policy.
There are four fields, each with terraces...
Field 1 has three terraces, which are separated by barriers and hedging, with only rough sloping grass paths interconnecting between the terraces. This field, being closest to the reception and shop, is approximately 125 metres from the toilet & shower facilities.
In Field 2 there are four terraces with five rows of pitches, again separated by barriers and natural hedging. Included in this field are the premier block-paved fully serviced pitches, which have water & waste connection, a level surface, electric hook-up and lighting with a wooden bench design picnic table. All other pitches are grass, basic or serviced pitches of varying sizes.
Situated between fields 2 and 3 is the toilet and shower amenities block (for details see separate information below).
Field 3 has five rows of pitches which are on three terraces, and they are all serviced. There are a limited number of hard-standing pitches on the higher terrace. At the rear of field 3 is Ash Meadow overlooking the lake, with just 6 premier grass pitches access to which is over a hardcore road with an uneven surface. These are positioned approximately 180 metres walk from the main amenities block.
Finally, in field 4, which is the furthest from the shower facilities being about 350 metres away, there are Premier and super-grass pitches. Again these overlook the lake, which is securely fenced from the pitches.
CHILDREN & DOGS
Access to the children’s play area is via an additional terraced section at the rear of field 3 and over a bridge which crosses the stream. This area is uneven and rough cut for adventure. Young children must be supervised at all times.
Dogs are welcome in the park and must be kept on leads. Assistance dogs are welcome in all facilities and areas at all times. At the rear of field 4 is a meadow area where dogs can be walked and there is access to the woodland walk too. Both the field and woodland area are sloped and uneven and not suitable for wheelchairs – they are purposely kept as natural as possible for environmental reasons.
TOILET & SHOWER AMENITIES BLOCKS
There is a hardcore parking area at the lower end of the ablutions block with the facilities accessed by a gently sloped block-paved access on both sides, with 5 block-paved deep steps running to the door. There are two parallel corridors with a total of 11 shower rooms including a disabled room with bars adjacent to the toilet and shower area, a free-standing shower seat, and non-slip heated flooring throughout. There is also an individual coin-operated bathroom and 6 private washrooms with standard toilets which do not include full disabled facilities.
There is a laundry room with coin-operated washing machines and tumble dryers, a sink for hand washing and wall-mounted free iron. There is also a baby-changing area and a separate dishwashing room with standard-height sinks.
