Camping at Glenny Wood

 

Glenny Wood is a great place to camp. The site is split into 8 camping plateaus. The site lends itself well for all types of camping as the areas differ in size and are easy to access and use.

 

For those camping we have in the Campers shed a fridge and freezer available for use.

 

The camping areas –
