Barnstondale is as secure as we can reasonably make it for a site in the countryside, without turning it into a prison! All cabins and rooms have locking doors and all exit points from the site have gates. There is a keypad-lock operated gate across the car park entrance which can be used if required.

Do you have internet access?
Yes, we have free wifi for our visitors all around the site, subject to availability.
