Communal kitchen

Situated about 100 metres away from the glamping tents is a fully equipped communal kitchen complete with gas hobs, microwave, fridge, freezers, pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, toasters and kettles. A great place to cook up some good food in great company. Clean up is a whizz with washing liquid and tea towels provided. There’s also a filtered water station handy to help you keep hydrated and a compost bin that we use for gardening.

Laundry room

Two coin-operated commercial washing machines are available. A laundry line with pegs is available to hang washing outside –for the love of crisp, sun-kissed washing.
