Essential Info

Cost Fixed £25 camping/loo fee no matter how long you stay – payable to Tam on arrival. Tam is in a caravan just as you enter the site with a big windsock to mark his spot.
Toilets 2 portaloos are available on site for our exclusive use
Dogs These are welcome as long as they don't bark all night and their poo is cleared up
Campervans These are welcome, but you should not expect an electric hook-up. Electric hook ups are only situated on the east side of the field (and are dependant on seasonal vans not using them).
Camping space There's plenty of this on the main field we shall be using. We will decide on camping / landing areas before people arrive, and let you know on arrival
Fires There will be a big communal fire in the evening. You're welcome to make your own, but please keep it OFF the ground either on stone or bricks or on legs. This is a pasture after all. Please bring firewood and your own seating!
Food Totally up to you, either bring it or go to Settle and buy it or go to one of the many good pubs / take aways in Settle.
Drink See above
Entertainment There will be a communal tent, of indeterminate size. We hope to have a folk band booked for one or two of the weekend evenings. Bring your own instrument or story also.
