Polyapes caters for County, District, Group & Patrol events all sites have water points and fire pits.
The Main Toilet facility has hot water and showers, the ridge unit now has hot water. We encourage open fires at Polyapes, there can be plenty of fallen timber around the site, however, our wood pile has run out and it is very difficult to obtain pallets now, so bring an alternative heat source with you. The orienteering trail has been renewed and maps are available (free) on request. We also welcome bookings from LRP groups and other organisations.*
Polyapes covers three distinct areas The Cub Field where both buildings and the main toilet block is located which comprises a mixture of flat grassland and various medium and small wooded sites.
The South Ridge Flat grassland in two parts with light and heavy wooded areas and where the second toilet block is located.
The Whistle Field A remote and quiet part of Polyapes where groups can practice the skills of bivouac building, backwoods camping, survival cooking and all types of fire building.
The Mowgli This facility has been modernised recently, now centrally heated with toilets and a modern kitchen. Can accommodate thirty in four bedrooms and is approved for Beaver Sleepovers.
The Warren is ideal for groups who wish to have indoor kitchen and dining facilities but still want to camp.
