For early man the obvious benefits of fire were for cooking, warmth and protection it helped advanced us as a species. Sitting around a roaring fire made us sociable, it is a focal point for people to gather around keeping warm gazing into the flames and recounting stories. It advanced languages and communication.

Well nothing has changed at Ellenden, we still have groups of families and friends sitting ‘peacefully’ together around the fire pits eating, drinking, telling lies and still trying to find constellations in the sky. Reconnect with your primitive soul but don’t worry we do supply the wood!
