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. Each group of two bell tents have one shared BBQ/fire pit and two picnic benches. 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 spaced out into two groups of 2 bell tents; the Clover Patch and the Dandelion Patch. 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 futon bed and two single airbeds. Linen is supplied for the double bed but you will need to bring sleeping bags for the airbeds if needed. Each tent is supplied with a single gas camping hob and kettle. 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 communal shower/WC facilities and washing-up area. Parking is a short walk from the tents. Aesthetically rustic, but charmingly practical; you’ll get all the feel of camping in the great-outdoors, but without the hassle of pitching a tent!

Shower & Toilet Rooms

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