In addition to our four glamping pods, we now have Bluebell, a cosy shepherd’s hut with a double bed and sofa bed, sleeping up to four. This was built and installed in 2018.
Our pods were installed in 2017 and come in three different levels – Beech and Oak are ‘standard’ pods, Willow is a ‘standard’ pod with its own private hot tub, whilst Ash is our ‘posh’ pod with a separate sofa. All of the standard pods sleep up to four, either as two single beds or one quadruple bed, whilst the posh pod sleeps two on a ‘proper’ double bed. Generally, you can bring up to two well-behaved dogs too.
You need to bring your own bedding (except for stays in Bluebell and Ash), towels and anything else you would normally take camping (Bluebell has crockery and cutlery, though). Basically, we provide your 'tent' with a few useful extras - a fridge, toaster, kettle, microwave, electric fire and WiFi, as well as tea, coffee, milk and biscuits.
The showers and washing-up facilities are in a neighbouring block, built in 2017, and also feature a disabled wet-room. There’s a communal lounge too. All five glamping units are in a field adjacent to a picturesque dingle, with overflying buzzards and views of the local church, and each come with their own picnic table opposite. BBQs are welcome – just keep them on the gravelled areas, please.
You can stay for just one night, although Ash, Willow and Bluebell need to be booked for a MINIMUM OF TWO NIGHTS, whilst all breaks taken over Easter, bank holiday weekends, Christmas and New Year are for a minimum of three nights.
I have really enjoyed staying here, and loved playing with the dog. The hot tub was lovely and the beds comfy. I will definately come back again.
