Our tent is named Short Eared, like an Owl. The tent is on a platform where you can relax and dine outdoors, and is situated along the bottom of the valley, close to the stream.
Our bell tent sleeps 4 (king size bed bedding included and two single fold-out mattresses bottoms sheet and pillows included, sleeping bags available on request or bring your own).
It has a fully equipped kitchen area including a two-ring gas cooker, barbeque and private bathroom with its own private compost toilet and eco shower, along with a running tap of cold water.
Accompanied by Steve’s Shack, our recreational space, which has 2×2 gas rings and a washing-up area, along with seating, games, a log burner, and plenty of candles, is perfect for those odd rainy evenings. We also have a small honesty shop where you will be able to pick up some essentials like bread, milk, and eggs; this is also where you can pick up freezer packs for the cool boxes provided in the tents.
Up on the Carriage Way is the cob and stone Beaters Hut (affectionately known as the bus stop, an excellent spot for a bit of stargazing) and hidden away a little further into the woods is the large campfire site, located in the old quarry.
The campfire site is a sheltered spot for getting together, swapping stories of your adventures and roasting a few marshmallows. If you have a little acoustic talent, you may even want to have a little campfire sing-song.
