Mealtimes

Generally, groups arrive mid-morning with their own packed lunch.  The first meal we provide is at around 5.30pm.  Breakfast is at 8am, lunch is variable depending on programme of activities.  Washing-up after evening meals is undertaken by the visiting group. We always provide washing up after breakfast so you can get out and do some activities! For an outdoor meal ask us about having a BBQ on our patio.
