Has John closed the campsite down for the winter yet?

I'm afraid that the website does not state if the campsite is open or closed.

I don't think he has as yet (I only departed on Monday), but give John a ring and find out. The number is on the website.

Is John's field open still, not the campsite, just the spotting area.

Looks like the field is closed to traffic, rather wet after overnight rain I guess..

Any idea if surface conditions have improved to enable 'Johns Field' to be open? As thinking of being a fool and popping over tomorrow!
