Holiday Rental House
Waterslacks Camping Barn is a traditional stone field barn that has been thoughtfully converted into basic accommodation.

It is a great experience for those who enjoy getting back to nature, or don't mind roughing it.The main area inside the barn has wooden sleeping platforms and a bench/table (guests provide their own camping mats and sleeping bags etc). The kitchen/dining area has picnic benches, storage units, a sink,fridge and slabs for cooking (guests supply their own camp stove and cooking equipment etc). There is a wash basin and WC within the barn, and an electric shower, which is the only source of running hot water.There is no central heating in the barn, ...Waterslacks Camping Barn is a traditional stone field barn that has been thoughtfully converted into basic accommodation.

It is situated on the same lane and is approximately 1/4 mile away. If extra guests over the 15 in the barn are wishing to stay camping the barn owner needs to be informed of this at time of booking. If barn owner is not informed of extra guests they may be asked to leave on arrival. More
