We suggest using either Christchurch or New Milton stations.
There are two keys for each lodge, which require a £5 cash deposit each.
All the lodges we are using are located in the Meadow. In your pack will be a map showing the park layout and highlighting your chalet location and the location of the LARP chalets.
Each lodge has a number of twin or double rooms. Each room should have no more than two occupants. Sleeping in public areas of the camp or in the convention areas is forbidden.
The lodges all have equipped kitchens, with a cooker, microwave, dishwasher etc. There are saucepans etc, and a full fridge and freezer. There is a small welcome pack with some tea and coffee, and a dishwasher tablet, and if you need more tablets there will be some on the Ops Desk for a contribution to the charity tin. You’ll probably need to buy some bin bags, and we’ve always ended up buying a washing up brush.
Bedding is provided, but towels are not, nor is soap. Please ensure that, despite this deficiency, Sammy the Soapbar remains your friend.
There’s at least one TV with a DVD in each lodge.
You need to vacate your lodge by ten o’clock on Monday morning. Please make sure you’ve washed up, and leave everything in a reasonable state and if you redistribute the furniture, please put it back.
Recycling facilities for glass, metal, paper and card are located behind the main building on the right hand side. If you take things there every time you go to the main building then the cleaners won’t be able to tell quite how much you’ve consumed.
The building opens at 08.00 and closes at midnight. The bars will stop serving at 23.00, so make sure you get a round in before they close.
No. The site are remarkably tolerant of us eating chocolate, and limited snacks in their space, but please exercise restraint and common sense. They take a very dim view of people bringing their own alcohol.
There are two bars – the main bar and Smuggler’s retreat. Both will be used as game spaces, but you can still get in there and get a pint. Please don’t gawp excessively at the LARPers whilst you’re there, unless they encourage you.
There’s a shop on the site, but don’t get your hopes up. It’s closed, as is the launderette and the outdoor swimming pool. Also there’s no cashpoint.
There is a snack bar, which also does coffee, open most of the day. It’s very much the burger and chips variety of food. Smuggler’s Retreat has a larger menu, which includes vegetables and everything!
There are dispensing machines for cold drinks and chocolate in the main building.
There’s a Sainbury’s about fifteen minutes away, with a cashpoint, petrol station and pharmacy:

Stop that sniggering at the back. LARP and other weapons are not to be used outside of the game space. This includes toy weapons, "boffers," or anything that is liable to trip others. Please use common sense. Do not wander around waving toy guns or knives, even brightly coloured plastic ones, keep them confined into game spaces.
There is wireless access in the main reception and the side lounges inside the main building,
Taxis should be booked to pick people up from main reception.
Phone reception is dreadful especially inside the main building, do not rely on this to contact people! There will be a message board at Con reception for non urgent things.
