There are three types of tent on offer bell tents, luxury tents and lodge tents. Up to 4 people sleep on double futon sofa beds in a 5 metre diameter bell tent. It is carpeted with coir matting and has a wood burning stove inside to keep it snug. A cooking hut provides all cooking facilities and storage space. Between the hut and bell tent is a large canvas awning giving you a dry outside dining/lounging area. Bell tent guests use the communal shower and toilet huts. Each private luxury tent can accommodate up to 6 people. There is a four poster bed in one room, 2 single beds in another, all with canopies and a sofa bed for 2 people in the living area (near the stove!). The deluxe tents sleep six; french doors and windows allows more natural light inside and lets you observe wildlife without scaring it and there are a number of other luxury additions.
Our camp has no permanent structures, and other than the odd wooden pole (and the buried bio digester dealing with effluent off-grid) nothing is attached into the ground, ensuring we tread lightly. We have up to 20 tents at present: 4 deluxe tents, 9 luxury lodge tents and 7 bell tents. Book and turn up for a night, a few days, a week or longer, just bring suitable clothes and thats it! No other packing. No hassle and set up, just turn up. Join us for a drink by the fire pit and clay oven, snuggle down in the privacy of your own tent or check out the local bars! The tents are set into the woodland landscape over 15 acres of the 200 acre woodland. No tents are closer than 15metres to each other and many much further than that. Being in a quiet woodland you can expect to hear the murmur of voices and occasional laughter.
Cool camping or "Glamping" is a trend that's emerged largely from our unique British festival culture, culminating in 24 hour festivals such as the The Magic Lounge About. Its a million miles from the camping we once knew. Glampers love the freedom of getting back to nature, going off grid and being eco, but are unwilling to compromise on style and comfort. The glamper can be found curled up on a mountain of sheepskin and cushions in a flame-filled white tent. Its a state of mind not a state of wallet. Theyll be nibbling on local delicacies whilst the bottle of fizz is cooling in the neighbouring stream. Eat and drink in your private suite in the woods, with the facilities provided in your tent. Indulge and go for it with our "Jollydays Breakfast Baskets". Proper posh camping breakfasts to set you up for the day and keep you going till high tea or even supper. We occasionally, and increasingly, have guest cooks, who come and prepare an evening meal so you dont have to do a thing or leave the site. Within 1 mile is the fabulous farm shop and café The Balloon Tree selling their own and local produce and a lovely café open from breakfast.
Conditions of Rental
We dont mind when you arrive, however for a warm relaxed welcome it's best between 4 and 7pm (tents are generally ready from 4pm). Some of the tents are very much off the beaten track and so cars cannot get close to them, for this and because we want to keep car movement and noise to a minimum cars are parked in a central area. Weeks run from Friday to Friday or Monday to Monday. The price does not include, cancellation insurance, food e.g breakfast baskets, bike hire, laundry of personal clothes. There are certain times of year where we only do 3 night weekends such as July and August and certain times of year, generally the school holidays, were we can only accept 1 tent of adults only in a booking.
