Our stoves run on seasoned wood and each lodge receives a canvas bag of wood per day for heating and cooking purposes. If you opt for a firepit/bbq then you will be able to help yourself to as many bags as you like.
Toddler Heavy Duty Fireguards
We have operated for many years without guards and without problems with youngsters around the wood-burning ranges and fire pits. When camping it is always very important to be watchful with little ones around fires. For extra peace of mind we can have a heavy duty child guard fitted to your lodge for the duration of your stay. However we must point out that this does not replace the need for keeping a vigilant eye on them! These can be hired at £12 per stay.
