Project information

Scarecrow Toilet Block

The Scarecrow toilet block is in dire need of TLC. It is one of the oldest buildings on Broadstone Warren and requires modernisation to meet the needs of our guests. The renovation will hopefully exceed the expectations of site users and make for a much more pleasant stay.
