Hi, I am planning to come to high lodge for a little picnic party for my daughter's birtday and was wondering whether you have any restrictions on the use of gazebos. We hope to set up one for a bit of shelter.

Hello, Standard domestic gazebo's are permitted on site, however marquees are not. On the day it is advisable to check in at the information point to ensure that your gazebo can be sited appropriately. Have a great birthday party.
