Accommodation

 

Indoor, Lodges, and Camping Accommodation are available at the Lapwing Lodge Base Camp.

The Indoor Accommodation is available in both the West and East Wings of the Main Building at Lapwing Lodge.  The West wing has nine 4 Bunk Rooms, plus two 6 Bunk Rooms (upstairs).  The East Wing has seven 4 Bunk Rooms.  This accommodation is supported in both Wings by Toilets and Showers, plus fully equipped self-catering Kitchens, with Dining Rooms (*) – one of each for both Wings.  Each Wing has a Lounge.  Access to the token operated Laundry facilities is available to those using the Indoor Accommodation.

(* If both the West and East Wings are substantially occupied for IRW, the West Wing Dining Room will be available as additional, to the Activities Hall, Workshop space, particularly for larger rocket projects.  The East Wing Dining Room is easily large enough for the occupants of both Wings.  People will be sitting down to eat at different times, so overcrowding is highly unlikely.)

 Lodges, or Glamping units, a.k.a. Hobbit Houses, are now available at Lapwing Lodge. There are four of these lodges. Each has bunk sleeping accommodation for up to ten people. This makes the Hobbit Houses very suitable for larger groups coming to the IRW, e.g. student rocket teams of more than four to six people. The Hobbit Houses have electric light, and mobile device charging sockets. For cooking there is a Cook House next door to the Hobbit Houses. This provides four sets of double gas burners, one set for each House. Folding dining tables and chairs are provided in the Cook House. For dining outdoors if the weather is good, there's an area of the fixed wooden tables and seats in the Hobbit Houses area.

Prior booking of Indoor Accommodation is strongly recommended.

The Camping facilities are:

- 25 Acres Camping area.
- Toilets and showers (blocks outside rear of the Main Building).
- Pots & Pans and Dish Washing area.
- Access to the token operated Laundry facilities.
- Alter fires and wood fuel available.

Prior booking for Camping is not required.

The rates for the Indoor and Lodges Accommodation, and arrangements for booking that, and the Camping rates are on the Important Information page.

Please note:  All cooking at tents must be done with safe appliances (e.g. bottled gas or electric cookers), with any rocket propellants safely stored away from any cooking activities.
Open fires are not permitted. No dogs or other pet animals please.
