Campers' Tips

GGAC Campers' Tips:

Info: Suggestions: Equipment and Accessories:


1. Ensure that you have a tent capable of withstanding the British Climate.
2. Good cooking Equipment, lighting, including a good torch and spare batteries.
3. Clothing to suit varying weather conditions.
4. Suitable Sleeping Bags and mattress. Being cold and uncomfortable at night is one of the worst "put offs" which can be avoided.
     (You will sleep better the second night onwards!)
5. Don't forget your pillow!

Toilet Systems:

Over the past year or so JWL have developed equipment which will solve this important problem.

The items are:
1. The GGAC Heavy Duty Toilet Stool.
2. GGAC Field Toilet Shelter, the GGAC 'Thunderbox'.
3. The GGAC Ablution Solution Mk2.

Items 1 and 2 are available to purchase - see the Campers' Accessories & Supplies page.

Item 3 a pallet mounted version of the Ablution Solution Mk2 is available to purchase by Farmers and Landowners. Price on application. Each unit is made to order and two months' notice is required.

Shepherds Huts

Shepherds Huts (SH) fit in well with Go Green Adventure Camping provided they are sited in a rural or remote area.

A Shepherds Hut can normally be Booked via the GGAC website at the Venue DS003-SH a very pleasant and friendly working farm on the Dorset Downs, which is an Area of Natural Beauty (ANOB) in South Dorset. However the Shepherds Hut at this venue is temporarily unavailable for bookings due to damage.

Shepherds Huts made by Cowley Shepherds Huts near Cheltenham, Gloucester are recommended.

Shepherds Hut hire charges are shown on the individual venue details page (where available) and enable you to Book and pay for the Hut hire with the rest of your Booking.

It is expected that other Venues will offer the facility to hire Shepherds Huts in the near future so please keep an eye on this GGAC website for updates.
