We are uniquely placed in the heart of the forest and governed strictly by the Forestry Commission on fire control; we must therefore ask guests not to bring their own fireworks, sparklers and sky lanterns on to the village. Any guest found using these will be requested to leave the village as per our Terms and Conditions. Guests with photosensitive epilepsy are advised that our display contains lighting features that may produce a stroboscopic effect.
