Glamping in Bell Tents
A treat for anyone who enjoys glamping in bell tents. Willow & Ash are gorgeous five metre bell tents in 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. The tents are furnished with everything you’ll need for 4 people. They come complete with their own tripod, with grill pan and Dutch oven. You can cook anything from bread to a roast dinner over the fire pit in your own clearing! Beds are one double and two single futons.
New for 2018 we have a huge 6M bell tent for Oak clearing. It sleeps 6, with a double bed, 1 double and 2 single futons. Oak is in a private wooded clearing, and again has out door firepit and seating, plus a picnic table.
In all tents is a 2 ring gas stove, so you can make your early morning coffee without having to light the fire first. You’ll have all the pots, pans and utensils you’ll need. Best of all, there is a wood burning stove to keep you toasty warm if the evenings are chilly. Lighting is a tealight chandelier around the central pole and a solar light.
The bell tents have their own toilet and shower facilities. We are always aware of 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! A tree bog works fantastically well with willow trees as they are so nutrient hungry. There 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! Or there’s the new shower block up at the car park for the more faint hearted!
You just need to bring your own bedding and towels. We also suggest you bring a torch and a battery powered light for use inside the tent. We provide an initial ‘fire pack’ of 1 x 15kg net of logs, 1 net of kindling, 1 pack of fire-lighters and a pack of matches. More of all of these can be bought at our shop. Dogs are welcome but please can they bring their own beds and bowls!
No smoking inside the tents please.
