The Glade

Our Glamping Glade is an idyllic spot. Perfect for those wishing to get away with friends or family. Nestled between our reservoir and the Malting Farm meadow; our four stylishly practical bell tents surround a communal fire-pit and dining area. It’s the ideal place to relax and enjoy a group get-away.

Our Tents

The Glade is a semi-permanent pitch of four purpose built bell tents. Made from thick, waterproof canvas and floored with hardwearing matting; they’re both practical and beautiful. Each of our charming tents comfortably sleeps up to four guests and contains one double bed and two single beds. The snuggly interior is centred around a tent pole mounted with a magical tea light chandelier that will cast a dream-like light around the tent as you settle in for the night.

Communal Space

The four tents share a communal cooking, washing-up and dining space. The area includes a BBQ and shared cooking equipment. Aesthetically rustic, but charmingly practical; you’ll get all the feel of camping in the great-outdoors, but without the hassle and mess!

Shower & Toilet Rooms

Our purpose built shower and toilet block provides two separate shower/toilet rooms for our guests.

Our stunning reservoir is regularly re-stocked with fish and we welcome you to bring your fishing equipment with you when you come to stay. Fishing is free on the reservoir, but please be aware that paddleboarders and swimmers take priority (even if you are already there fishing). If you fancy casting a line during your stay, please make sure you’ve packed your own equipment and bait.

If you’re anything like us, the last thing you want to do after a long journey or busy day exploring is cook! So to make your arrival day and stay at Malting Farm as relaxing as possible, we offer some simple home-cooked suppers.
