Access to Bullpot Farm for Members and a few guests during Covid-19 restrictions

As a result of the government road map we will be partially open seven days of the week from May 17th.

The Farm can reopen in a limited fashion for Members and a few guests while COVID regulations are in place.

Step Three will allow people from two different bubbles to meet indoors from May 17 for the first time since the turn of the year. Groups of up to six people or two households – whichever is larger – will be allowed to meet in an indoor setting. Government guidance on sensible social distancing, cleaning and ventilation (opening windows) will remain in place.

So in terms of the Farm we still need to keep the building split into two so that we can have up to 6 individuals or two households stopping overnight in the front half and the rear of the building set up for camping by other individuals with tents in rear garden or bonfire field. There is no need any longer to quarantine club tackle in the drying room, which will be back in use for its original purpose.

All visitors will still be expected to sign in as usual and pay fees by BACS in advance. 

INDOORS Via Gable end door

Sign in using day book in the box on the wall when you arrive. Internally we can open the Farm to two separate households or six people. The gable end door gives access to the Members Room, guest kitchen and upstairs toilets and is for people to use the bedrooms. This has a different code to the back door. You will get this code when you book during the previous weekend. Members bookings not used by Monday will be available to none members.

FOR CAMPERS. The back half of the farm will be a separate facility through the rear garden door. Externally, we will allow 6 campers/tents with access to the downstairs toilet and urinal and showers provided they are all in a bubble. Motor camper vans, as long as they are fully self sufficient, are also allowed. MEMBERS WILL NEED TO BOOK ONE OF EITHER FACILITIES TO AVOID OVER-CROWDING.

Pre booking is essential  for use of all the facilities and all bookings will be displayed on the website. Members must pre-book by the end of Sunday of the previous weekend then it can be opened up to non-member groups. Usual charges apply. Members £5, Guests £7. Booking Info and Diary here

There are six sets of personal cutlery, plates, cups, pots and pans are available in the two kitchens.
