Little Acres Campsite was created in late 1995 in the grounds of Horton Country Park, some 400 acres of green belt open space, and is available for camping, night hikes, meetings, camp nights, revels and badge activities. It is a quiet, open area tucked away from residential housing. It is reached by a narrow (single track) lane from the public highway about 400 yards away – there is hard standing adjacent to the site for unloading and parking of maybe five cars, but there is no turning space for any vehicle larger than a minibus. Parking for large events is available in the adjacent Country Park car park.
The site itself is about 3 acres of open grass, on a slight south facing slope. Metered water from a standpipe. There are 8 ground level patrol fire-places and one central campfire area. There is a small woodpile, and dead wood is available in the surrounding park, but cutting wood from the trees is not allowed.There is a permanent toilet block, including a ‘disabled’ toilet and a shower. Paper and scraps can be burnt on site, but all other rubbish must be removed by campers – there is no on-site rubbish collection.
