Electricity is provided at key times by a generator. Lighting in the bathrooms is by paraffin lights.

Each bungalow has a large stylishly appointed bedroom, a large en-suite bathroom as well as an expansive terrace.

It allows for approximately ten camping sites on carefully maintained lawns. The facilities provide showers, toilets and washbasins as well as laundry facilities. Hot and cold water is available.
