For your safety on our glamping site Owl valley has been run for many years as a private nature reserve. In order to keep this beautiful valley as natural as possible we have tried to make as little impact as we can, therefore there are no safety barriers around our pond, (pond dipping is allowed, however, the pond is seasonal as it is fed by a natural source) or along the stream. There are steep banks, uneven ground and steps and also a stream running along side the glamping area. The Weather is unpredictable (as we all know) in this country, so conditions may well be wet and slippery or dry and hard. We would recommend suitable clothes and footwear for all weathers, which will enable you to enjoy our valley. Adults are responsible for their own safety and that of any children in their care.
Please also note it is VERY dark at night and a good torch is a must, we will have some to borrow (subject to a £10 deposit) if you forget.
As a nature reserve their are many creatures living here, some very interesting butterflies moths, dragon flies, and Bees. Wasps, spiders ants plus lots more, any of which may enter your tent, (they are equipped with mosquito nets on doors and windows.) This must be expected at certain times of the year.
We also have foxes badgers and deer, so please do not leave any food out.
