Winter days

January 23rd 2006
The Walkers Barn remains well used through the winter particularly at weekends. This facility has 3 individual, small bunk rooms. There is a single top bunk and a double one below. There are 2 toilet cubicles, 2 hand basin and 2 shower cubicles and a small cooking and eating area. There is some background heating but not a lot so people bring plenty to keep themselves very warm at this time of the year.
The Walkers Barn was developed from an old Nissen Hut that had been on the site since the war.
It is insulated and provides ideal shelter for walkers doing the South West Coast Path and for climbers and for the odd night for visitors to the locality.

January 2006

Happy New Year
It is pretty chaotic at Tom's Field at present.
We are in the midst of the winter works. This year we are completely refurbishing the Gents shower room. This will look very smart when we have finished. The builders are hard at this work and the completion of the new ceilings throughout the toilet block.
There are huge piles of rubble around but it will all be clear for mid March when we open for business
There are 5 sheep on the fields through the winter and their job is to munch through the grass and provide our spring campers with neatly 'mown' site. Sometimes they do not work hard at all and can be found sitting around in the weak January sunshine.
