Info for guests

What time can I arrive?

Arrival time is normally from 4pm onwards.

Can I bring pets?

We’re sorry we can’t accommodate pets at this time, but assistance dogs are welcome.

Do you have car parking facilities?

Space is available in our main car park for approximately 40 vehicles.

Do I need to bring my own travel cot or high chair?

We have 3 travel cots available for guest use and 3 high chairs. Please let your group leader if you want to borrow these, so they can notify the office and we can have them set up for you in preparation for your stay.

What bedding do I need to bring?

Bring a pillowcase and either two sheets or a sleeping bag. You will also need to bring your own towels. Towels and sheets can be hired from us, but you need to let your group leader know well in advance of your visit so this can be arranged.

I have a special dietary need who do I inform?

Let your group leader know well in advance of your stay that you will require specific foods to accommodate your needs. Allergens and food related requirements must be notified to your leader at least 2 weeks before your visit so that menu alterations and food purchases can be made in preparation for you. Vegetarians and Vegans also need to let their group leader know of their food preference before visiting as these requirements are not automatically catered for.

I’ve left something at The Castle. What do I do?

Any lost property will be retained for two weeks after your visit. If you wish to pick up your items, please contact us and we will arrange a time suitable for you.

Centre Ministries does this by providing good quality cost-effective centres to serve the Christian community in providing opportunities that are primarily residential for churches and Christian organisations to fulfil their mission and stimulate growth.
