Our gorgeous five meter Bell Tents are in individual clearings in the woods just off the sunset side of the camping field. The clearings allow each tent its own privacy and are large enough to let in lots of sunshine. They are sumptuously furnished with everything you'll need for 4 people and come complete with their own tripod with grill pan and Dutch oven in which you can cook anything from bread to a roast dinner.
Beds are a double futon and two single cotton mattresses. There is a 2 ring gas stove so you can make your early morning coffee without having to light the fire first, and all the pots, pans and utensils you’ll need. Best of all there is a mini wood burning stove to keep you toasty warm if the evenings are chilly.
The bell tents have their own toilet and shower facilities; we are always aware our green credentials so we have built a 'Tree Bog’ situated in an ancient grove of willow trees. The trees are so old the trunks are totally hollow, my two girls can climb inside them, and tree bog works fantastically well with willow trees as they are so nutrient hungry, so they reduce the waste we produce far more efficiently than I would have ever believed. It is a hazel hurdle outdoor shower you just need to heat up some water to put in the galvanised shower bucket, all part of the fun!
Please bring your own bedding. No pets in the bell tents please!
We provide an initial 'fire pack' of 1 x 15kg net of logs, 1 net of kindling, 1 pack of firelighters and a pack of matches. More of all of these can be bought at our shop.
Oak Tent is more private in a wooded clearing, Ash and Willow Tents are in a grassy clearing surrounded by the woodland, they are separated by curved woven fence so work equally well for booking both tents together or separately.
We book these out for 3 night weekend breaks Friday to Sunday, or 4 night mid week breaks Monday to Thursday. Outside our busy periods of school holidays we can be flexible and offer shorter breaks.
