What do I need to bring with me?
Food & Clothing. That’s it. Really! Guests often comment “that you really have thought of everything” so you can pack light and enjoy your journey as well as your stay.
Do you have heating in your tents?
The tents have very warm duvets and we have lots of blankets and hot water bottles available which is enough to keep most people warm. We do not have wood burners or electric heating inside the tents. The Old Stable however does have electricity and an electric heater.
What if it rains?
If the weather decides to turn typically British we have a large covered area with plenty of seating. We have a large BBQ here too so you can still cook and eat whatever the weather. This area also works well as a shady escape from the midday sun.
What cooking facilities do you have?
There is a large, 6 burner gas BBQ on the covered patio area and we provide plenty of gas for this, the BBQ also has a side burner like a hob and we also have a microwave, kettle and toaster in the kitchenette. We also provide all cooking equipment including saucepans, BBQ utensils, skewers etc.

Do you offer exclusive use?
Yes. We only offer exclusive use - all bookings will have the whole site to themselves.

What facilities do you have for children?
We provide a range of outdoor games and some board games to help keep the kids entertained, the site is a largely open space so children can run and play freely while parents can still keep an eye on them. For younger children we have a baby changing table, baby bath, high chair. Young babies stay for free and so we do ask that you provide your own travel cot and bedding for them.
Do you allow campfires?
Of course, your Glamping experience wouldn’t be complete without one! There is a large fire pit in the middle of the site for our groups to use. We also do not charge any extra for the wood for your campfires, simply help yourself and enjoy the flames dancing.

We have 4 tents and The Old Stable, a converted log cabin. We can sleep a max of 25 but can also accommodate larger groups by bringing in extra tents.

Can I get shopping delivered?
Yes, all the major supermarkets deliver to us without a problem. We are a 15 minute drive from the closest supermarket but the local village of Bethersden is 1 mile away and has a small shop for essentials and a great butcher which is well worth a visit.
Is there drinking water on site?
Absolutely. We have 3 taps which provide a mains water supply. Please do not bring water in plastic bottles, we are all too aware of the damage single use plastics are doing!
