News about Barnswood

June 2023

There have been recent reports of horsefly bites at Barnswood on Oak Tree and Rudyard sites.
CLICK HERE to find out some information and how to best avoid being bitten.

Barnswood is now in full summer camping mode and looking great. We have had several groups on site this last month and all have been exemplary campers leaving the sites, buildings and toilets in excellent condition.

Currently there are additional toilets and showers by Camp Hall. These are for Entrust’s mid week use and will remain locked most weekends. Entrust is also leaving a store tent up on each of Hillside and S. Hillside campsites. Please respect this private property.

The archery bosses and axe targets installed by Entrust on the Merebrook site may be used by other groups with the appropriate equipment and instructors (not supplied by Barnswood). Book the facility with the bookings secretary .

After you have visited us, do leave comments at so we know what we are doing well and what we can improve.

Please note that Barnswood is only available on the weekend of 20th-22nd October to M&C groups attending JOTA
