Your cosy and glamorous nomadic bell tent has a double bed with up to 3 single mattresses and extra furnishings. All bedding, bed linen and bath towels are supplied and there is a power supply for lighting and phone/tablet charging. 

Outside your tent you can enjoy a BBQ on your firebowl and grill. Alternatively head to the communal kitchen area where you can delight in the giant pizza oven! Fully equipped with fridges, ovens, crockery and glassware are all supplied for your convenience. 

If the British weather isn't being kind then you can retreat to one of three giant Kata Tipi's with wooden flooring and furniture where you can stay warm and dry undercover from the elements. This space is ideal for dining or other activities such as traditional board games or simply sitting with a book. If you fancy a night off cooking then head over to the Barn Brasserie, an award winning 16th century restaurant located at Teybrook Farm. 

There are no normal bathroom facilities here, with shepherd's Huts offering toilet conveniences and converted horse trailers housing shower units!
