Enjoy a magical Festive period with a difference at Wagon Over the Valley. Bring some layers and snuggle up around the wood burning stove, or take an outdoor bathtub dip. The owner will provide  extra blankets, a basket of Christmas goodies and a bubbly. The first basket of wood will be provided, the ones after £5 each, you're very welcome to bring your own.   IF you want to have an outdoor fire, where possible, please provide your own wood for fire pits.

Should the temperatures drop below freezing point, it is most likely that there will be no water from taps, in that case we will top all outdoor tubs with water ahead of freezing, and provide drinking water in glass bottles and fill thermoses from the house tap (drinking water), and you can heat up water to wash up on stoves. However this is an extreme scenario which has not happened in recent years.
