Terms Of Hire and Safety

  • When using any outdoor fireplace make sure safety is your No 1 priority. Please familiarise yourself with the Fire Extinguishers on site.
  • Never leave a fire unattended and know how to use your fire safety equipment. Make sure your fire is out before going to bed at night even if it means filling a smouldering fire pit with water.
  • Don't sacrifice safety remember you are dealing with fire. Whenever a fire is lit there is a potential to cause damage to you, friends, family, your tent, caravan etc.
  • When starting any controlled fire, safety is the number one concern.
  • Please do not tip ash around the camp site, this is a huge fire risk hazard , always use the metal containers provided.
  • Please always follow the safety instruction sheet supplied with your fire pit, only burn the seasoned wood provided.
  • Fire Hazard:-although very tempting, please do not try and create the biggest height of flames, our Fire pits are a safe size for our camp-site, so piling up logs too high creates a hazard as they may topple.
  • Strictly no going into the woods for firewood. We are under a woodland Management scheme. Thank You
    Please read the above and accept our Terms before Hiring a Fire -Pit


  • Our terms of BBQ use are covered in the fire pit hire , but please follow these simple rules for any other BBQ's
  • Disposal BBQ,s please do not use directly on our grass, bricks are available for your use.
  • Strictly no BBQ,s inside of tents, Carbon Monoxide kills.
  • Ash's only to be emptied in the metal bins provided.
  • BBQ use at least 3 metres away from tents, units.
  • Lastly please make sure they are fully extinguished before retiring to bed.

How this works?

  • This hire is for the duration of your stay, extra nets of wood logs, charcoal, fire-lighters etc. can be purchased from reception.
  • Once booked we will deliver the fire-pit to your pitch, and set it up on level ground and raised bricks, to ensure the heat does not conduct down to the grass. This must be at least 3 metres from your tent or caravan.
  • Always start your fire with the kindling wood, if you are cooking first, add your charcoal, the Dorset Charcoal ignites quickly, so no need for fire-lighters, this is  ready to cook on in 15 minutes, this charcoal burns cleanly, and has a greater volume per Kg.
  • After you have enjoyed your BBQ, remove the grill top using tongs, (sorry not provided) allow to cool, then start to add the logs in a tripod fashion, this allow the air to circulate building up the heat in the centre , then sit back, enjoy and relax by your Fire-pit, toast your Marsh mallows, or make camp fire biscuits !!
