The toilet and showers and even a big kitchen as a little walk away behind the farm house. The men’s toilet was a little out house behind the shower and kitchen. The showers is two power showers with plenty of hot water with good shower heads.
The kitchen, had two sinks and plenty of space to do your cooking in if the weather was too bad to fire up your stove outside. Though there was no microwave oven or cooker in there, but it could easily be used as shelter on nasty days.
The pitch itself was not a big area for camping and it had a wavy effect to it. So it is a bit hard to find a completely flat area.

Pitching it the other way you would either have your feet and head up or down, where the middle of you would be opposite.
