Our eco-glamping area is set within seven acres, divided into pasture for our small flock of Jacob sheep, a young orchard of mixed fruit and an area currently being planted up with mixed native trees to blend the grassland into woodland as it meets ‘The Blean’. There are a few beehives at the bottom near the woodland, which enjoy a wide range of natural habitat that surrounds the land.
We have bell tent camping options and also a fantastic eco shepherd's style hut.
The land was bought in 2006, as one large bare field, which had grazed horses for several years. Prior to that it had been a Bramley apple orchard for many years. During this time we have planted over 500metres of native hedging, which now bursts with blossom in the spring and provides beautiful habitat for local wildlife. The aim over the next few years is to turn some of the grassy areas into flower meadow for our bees and start an area of permaculture style growing.
Our site is run with sustainability in mind and is off grid, so there is no electricity. On arrival, we will have a 4.5m Bell tent already waiting for you (with inflated air beds and rugs) - all you need to bring is your personal belongings and bedding.
Our bell tents sleep 2 adults and up to 3 children and our onsite facilities and sundries include:
- clean running water + water carrier bottles
- a compost toilet
- a simple solar shower area
- BBQ and campfire area + firewood + lighting tools
- cooking and eating utensils + washing up equipment
