A Couple of Things You Might Like to Know

You will have exclusive use of an indoor kitchen, toilet and shower.

Our location is extremely convenient – you will be on J26 of the M5 within minutes.  This does mean that we have very noticeable traffic noise in our paddock.  However, we find once settled in and enjoying your beautiful surroundings this fades into the background.

The indoor kitchen offers camping luxury, with a microwave, toaster, kettle and full size fridge. If you’re not using electricity the stove choices you have are either the wood burning stove in the tent, or a single ring gas burner.
