Why stay here ...
Pencraig is a quiet, south-facing, large, lawned area site. The CL is part sloping with extensive views and is part of Karen and Rupert's 12 acre home. The CL field is accessed by an electric gate and Rupert takes great pride in keeping the field regularly mown. Members are requested to use breathable groundsheets only.

Great fun.
