Campsite Ratings Guide

Silver Campsite Rating

This includes having adequate toilet provision, a fire risk assessment, emergency contingency plans and having a drinking water risk assessment. ‘Silver’ sites will be making satisfactory progress towards improving their on-site facilities and offer a safe place to stay, with security, for the duration of your event.
Any licensed activity (alcohol and/or entertainment) will be compliant with current licensing legislation.

They will exceed the recommended minimum sanitary facilities. You can expect the campsite to be clean, well organised, with good security, and with adequate and well maintained facilities.
