List of things to bring

Firstly we hope that you will not need to bring a lot. Glamping by nature is about being able to take the hastle out of having to load up the car full of gear!!

We hope we have thought of everything you may need but if not we always say just ask and we hope we can oblige.

SUGGESTED LIST OF THINGS TO BRING WITH YOU OK!
Good torch or camping lantern
Tea lights …look great outside in the evening
Wellies or waterproof shoes(the grass is very wet in the morning and paths around the Ponds are muddy…they do dry up too!)
Slippers or easy to slip on shoes for inside the accomodation.
Charcoal for BBQ,firelighters and matches.

Own logs (or we supply them £5 a box)
Food and drink…there will be coffee,tea and sugar, available.

We are off the grid, so solar energy and huge amounts of laundry can be tricky. So we often ask guests if they can bring their own towels and covered duvet or sleeping bags, plus an extra blanket for chilly nights. We always supply a clean bottom sheet and covered pillows.

This way we also keep our overall fees reasonable, but we can make the bed up for an extra fee of £5. We can provide towels and bedding for overseas visitors for £8.
