Does your site get waterlogged in wet weather?
We are lucky here at Cross Dormont that we do not
get waterlogged in wet weather.Can we use BBQ's?
You may use BBQ's providing they
are off the ground. Please note, although you may be tempted to put your barbeque in your tent, or tent porch, either during
or after use, to keep you warm, DONT! It may kill you, and very quickly.
Carbon monoxide fumes from BBQs are invisible,
odourless, and lethal. Even if you think it's safe, and the flames have died down, don't do it. The smouldering coals
may be warm, but they will kill you. Even with the tent doors open. Even just in the porch. Please don't do it! Are we able to have a camp fire?
Cross Dormont do not allow camp fires due to fire risks and safety
to other campers.Do you have shower facilities?
