Our beautiful bell tent, Short Eared, is situated on a large, decked area where you can relax and dine outdoors, nestled along the bottom of the valley, close to the stream.

Our bell tent sleeps 4 (king size bed – bedding included and two single futon beds – bedding not included).

Outside, you can enjoy dining alfresco on the picnic bench which is located near your private kitchen area or gather around the firepit to roast marshmallows listening to the Owls and enjoying the wonderful dark sky.

There is a fully equipped kitchen area including a two-ring gas cooker, barbeque and private bathroom with its own private Biolan composting toilet and eco shower, along with a running fresh water tap.

Accompanied by Steve’s Shack, our recreational space, where you can find a pool table, darts board, plenty of board games, a log burner, and plenty of candles, it is the perfect place for those odd rainy evenings. We also have a small honesty shop where you will be able to pick up some essentials like extra fire wood or additional bbq coal; 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.
