We operate a quiet camp after midnight and speakers are not allowed in the fields (we live onsite and care about out village neighbours, excessive noise complaints will result in partying guests to be asked to leave and will forfeit their damage deposit, we're gorgeous for a back to nature/good vibes/good fun and amazing gathering, we are just totally not for you if you wish to plan an all night rave in a field!
Arrivals from 3pm - early arrivals are not possible at this time due to House Keeping, Covid-19 extra cleaning and social distancing with our HK Team.

Please don’t leave your car on the track or drive too close to the tents/guy ropes
Please only drive the outer track during the times of 11am – 7pm. Never drive up after dark please, the fields have no lighting and after 7pm the meadow is a car-free, child-friendly and camper-friendly zone.

We are super eco-friendly and want your stay to be an experience in enjoying nature without bringing in lots of unnecessary extras and especially plastic...so here's a guide to how you stay here and honour the camp ethos and environment:
Only compostable plates and cutlery allowed (if you need them at all as we do provide crockery - and if you are hiring a caterer please let them know we have a no single-use plastic policy! All camping meadow waste will need to be gone from site when you leave
No glow sticks - we can't tell you how many discarded bits of glowing plastic have ended up in the grass or the bin and it's pants, so it's time to think more out of the box for your decor with something that doesn't trash the planet!
Only real petal confetti (that composts) is allowed and no candles or sky lanterns please
None of your own alcohol is to be taken into the warehouse licensed bar areas, unless dry-hiring for a party
Shoes are to be taken off in tents and all accommodation please - we recommend socks, slippers or other shoes, and obviously wellies!
The camp grounds and covered spaces need to be left clean, tidy and free of any trace of your stay, including waste, unwanted/leftover food, recycling, with washing up done, bbq cleaned, and no cigarette ends are left laying around, no smoking or any flames near or in any of the accommodation - thank you! Namaste
The little wren and family that live in the entrance to The Wren's Nest are lovingly looked upon but are left untouched to live alongside you!
Please use the fire safely and never throw any waste in the fire, never use flammable liquid to light a fire
We don't allow speakers in the camping meadow, please no loud partying in the meadow, especially after dark, please remember we are Leave No Trace and we Party Lightly on the Planet!
We are sober curious and a drug free environment, thanks!
