Stayed here in our caravan for 10 days in july. Really enjoy this site. Newly tarmaced pitches. Beautiful walks. Excellent park for children. Deer, sheep, goats and poultry on site. Stunning castle located in the grounds. The facilities are dated but kept clean.

There are BBQ areas and firepits (rock circles ). I have seen camp fires lit .... best to ask the wardens when you arrive though.

I imagine so, dogs are permitted in the Forrest but not in all areas. There are signs for no dogs in the area where there are the forest animals. They have to be on a lead too. Hope this helps
