Watertrough Cottage

WATERTROUGH COTTAGE

The Group has a small stone built Bunkhouse in the grounds of Watertrough Park, which is located in the South Barrule Plantation area.

The bunkhouse is quite basic and consists of one room which is divided into:

  • A sleeping area with three sleeping platforms and can accommodate about 15 on the three levels. Access to the upper two levels is by way of a permanent Ladder.
  • Living, eating and cooking area. The cooking area has a full size domestic cooker, which runs off bottled gas, stainless steel food preparation and washing up area. Various cooking pans and utensils are provided. In the Living / eating area is a large table with chairs.

Heating is provided by the multi fuel stove. No lighting is provided and groups should provide their own, whether they use battery lights or pressure or gas lanterns.

Outside there is a lean to which houses a very basic chemical toilet.

There is room around the cottage for about six hike tents in the grounds and the surrounding plantation is ideal for building bivouacs and playing wide games. The South Barrule Plantation has mountain bike routes though it.
