What is the minimum age that can visit?
We haven’t set a minimum age for visitors, though obviously some very young children cannot take part in all activities. We don’t have sleeping facilities for the very youngest, so travel cots etc would need to be brought with you.
Is Barnstondale secure?
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 Wi-Fi for our visitors at locations around the site, subject to availability.
