1st Godshill & Rookley HQ & Campsite

May Close Godshill Ventnor Isle of Wight PO38 3HB

We are situated at the end of a cul-de-sac with fields and a play area around us. As you can see in the photo above, by the tree is a footpath sign, giving us a good point for hiking.

This HQ is available for Scout & Guide Groups to use by giving a donation (see later for suggested donation fees). There is a small area for camping that will take 6 x Patrol Tents and 4 x 3 man hike tents with a seated campfire area. This area is level and drains well. There is a car parking for mini buses, cars, vans and if you wish a 52 seater coach. Buses are available about 2 mins away on the Main Road that will eventually transport you to all parts of the Island.

The facilities in the HQ are:

Kitchen (Has just been refurbished so all units and cooker brand new) – Caters for a maximum of 40 people with everything supplied ie cooking equipment, plates, bowls, cutlery, mugs etc so no need to bring any of these just your food. Also a large brand new cooker with 5 x burners and a large oven for those pizzas, tea urn, kettle, microwave and fridge freezer. Boiler for central heating and hot water.

Toilets/Showers – Boys, girls and an accessible toilet used also by leaders. One shower in each of the boys and girls toilet with small wash basins.

Chairs/Tables – 7 x 2m GoPack tables, 4 x GoPack benches and 50 chairs.

Main Hall – Can be used to sleep in (but on a wooden floor) if prefered or if the building is used for bad weather, which is required for younger sections.

Venture Den – Small side room that can be used for 1st Aid or if a young person becomes ill. Also enough room for 2 to 3 Leaders to sleep if required.

Fees: £4.00p per person each night. A minimum of £40 per night as a donation will be charged if below 10 using facilities. This covers all I have described in the above.
A non returnable Deposit of £50 will be asked for from you to secure booking. This can be paid for by cheque made out to 1st Godshill and Rookley Scout Group or by bank transfer (information for Bank Details will be given when you ask).

Birthday Parties for young children only: The cost would be a donation of £40 and this allows you to gain access before the party to set up and time afterwards to clear away.
