Take your own tent, caravan or tourer to sleep in and kick back and enjoy being there. Petruth is informal and expects mutual respect for the other lucky people to be enjoying Jules’ hospitality. Campfires are absolutely allowed so gather your rocks, order your wood, get your marshmallows at the ready and get communal fire building for your party – there is nothing quite like it!
The welcome marquee at the entrance is where you need to say Hi, I’ve arrived. Here you will find tourist info and be given a handy guide about the site and what’s available on site and locally.
There are 12 hard standing pitches for caravans, camper vans – the chill out field is where the happy campers pass through to. This is where you will find space, an old land rover to climb over and Jules sporadically with his trailer offering fun rides to uber-excited kids.
Hot showers and washing up facilities are located in the corner of the main field – drinking water points are scattered throughout the campsite.
A free book library is available if you think you will escape the cricket, rounders, hide and seek, climb over the Land Rover games long enough to sit quietly – there’s every chance you might once the kids clock their new best mates across the field and disappear for the day.
Rubbish is recycled and you are provided with a recycling bag kit to use during your stay – there is a chemical disposal point too. As far as safety goes there are fire points scattered around the field with bells and extinguishers provided.
Firewood is delivered to your door – courtesy of Jules’ son – kindling and logs are available at £2.50 and £5.00 a bag respectively. Paper and fire-lighters and marshmallows and sticks are available at reception so the camp-fire is a go!
Dogs are allowed and may be let off the lead IF they are completely trustworthy with other living beings. They must be kept within the field as livestock may be outwith. You are of course expected to dispose of waste in the bins provided.
And that’s about it for rules – except no flying kites by the electricity pylons – which is very sensible.
