Our site offers lots of flexibility – we have been hosts to a variety of events, including; weddings, forest feasts, mindful retreats, music festivals, and much more.

Woodland Spa | Coming soon in 2023!

We are excited to await the commissioning of our brand-new outdoor spa. Set amongst the trees the spa features a sauna which can comfortably accommodate up to 6 adults, and features a large picture window looking out into the woods, with cold showers and a drench bucket, for the hot/cold experience. There’s also a fire pit to sit around between stints in the sauna. Sessions at the spa are available to book as an extra either in advance of your stay or on arrival.

Bell Tents | New for 2023

This season, we can also offer up to ten 5 metre bell tents which can be hired as an extra. These can be provided fully erected either as a dry hire, or furnished to include beds and mattresses, a table, chairs, and lighting, together with exterior decking. If you are looking for bell tents as part of your event, please let us know and we will be happy to discuss options.

Wash Facilities

We have recently completed our beautiful new and much improved washrooms on site. These include plenty of showers and toilets, as well as family rooms, a disabled facility and lots of hot water!


Adjacent to the washrooms is the Forest Barn, an indoor space which includes electricity and wifi, a bar area, a small catering kitchen, and a wood burning stove.

Outdoor Features

Attached to the Forest barn is a large decked area over-looking an open glade in the middle of the site that can accommodate a large marquee if required.
On the edge of the glade is a fire pit, together with a multi-functional covered space, ideal for ceremonies, yoga or any number of other activities.
Elsewhere on the site, we have a covered outdoor cooking area, and a long hut.
There are external sockets close to the Forest barn for running external lighting etc (see FAQ’s for details), and water taps distributed throughout the camping areas.
