  • Hall hire fee £100 per day is from 9.00am-5.30pm. Use of the hall outside these hours incurs an additional hire fee of £18.50 per hour. We recommend booking it in if evening use is likely, because we do get other bookings just for evenings, and it allows things to overrun with no stress etc. For more information on spaces available for workshops, please see our Facilities for Hire page.
Camping fee – £7.50 per person per night. It is our intention to have compost toilets and a fire pit (by May 2020) in our camping field, there is already a tap in the field. In addition, there are two outdoor access (mains) toilets a short walk away in our courtyard and garden building.
