We have established that we could have the use of this facility for the weekend of 14th 15th & 16th June. @stu and I went and had a look at it & were shown around by the guy that manages activities there.

It sleeps 26 spread among 4 rooms upstairs, has a main living area about 25 maybe 30 ft long & 13 ft wide, a fully equipped kitchen, has plenty of parking and a yard with a covered seating area & various places that BBQ’s could be set up as well as a place to set a fire if we choose to. It’s a similar construction to Lopwell with thick granite walls & we’d be unlikely to disturb anyone too much.

Stu took some photos.

The price if 20 people were to attend would be £26 each. A few more attendees would bring that down a little.

There are various nice walks & pubs nearby if people would prefer to stay in those.

The Two Bridges Hotel, East Dart Hotel & the Warren House Inn are all within 5-10 minutes drive if anyone would prefer that.

So far we have

I’d love to pop in, but would also kip in my van or at home, as it’s just down the road from me. Lovely spot. I drive past there all the time, but have never actually been in. There’s an epic tor walk up behind there. Sod’s law, I always tend to have stuff on at that time of year, but fingers crossed…

I’m going to say a tentative yes. May end up sleeping in the LC or hedge.

Did the Guides get here first - can’t see any paddles!

It was the Brownies who turned Guy over. By the time they get into the Guides they’ll be training for their money-laundering and VAT fraud badges.
