Loos and Showers
We have 6 bathrooms with hot showers, flushing loos and heated towel rails a short walk from your tent and a washing up area with hot running water.
The generator that powers the showers goes off at 11pm and back on again at 7am so you won't be able to have showers during that time but the loos still work and the water in the basins is still hot.
Lighting and Electricity
We will provide lanterns and tea lights but we recommend bringing a torch if you have one (who doesn’t love a head torch, let's be honest). There are lots of places to charge phones and laptops if required in the communal barn.
Your tent has a fire pit so you can toast marshmallows and star gaze to your hearts content. We do ask that if you want to play music you keep it quiet, particularly after dark. We provide logs and firelighters and if you're not sure about lighting your campfire please ask and we can give you a hand.
What to bring:
Warm clothes!! Even when the days are boiling this is still Hertfordshire and not Tuscany. The tents are fully insulated and very snug. We provide duvets and warm blankets, but an extra jumper is still a good idea for sitting around the campfire.
You will need to bring any food and booze you want, and we can provide a campfire supper of stew and baked potatoes ready to be heated up on campfire when you arrive (please choose this option and state number of mouths to feed on the booking page).
We don't provide towels as standard, but if you can't face carrying one with you we can provide them for you (please choose this option and state quantity required on booking page).
We will provide some torches, but if you have one handy we would recommend bringing them as the electricity is turned off during the night. There are LED lanterns in the bathrooms and a few lights in the communal areas but it is easiest to have a torch with you.
It does get very light in the mornings and the tents are white so if you are easily woken up then think about bringing an eye mask to sleep in.
Wellies are always a good idea if you want to go exploring in the woods or round the fields, this is proper farmland so even in the middle of summer things can get a bit muddy..
If there is anything else we haven't mentioned and you think is a definite necessity, please just drop us an email and we will let you if we have it or whether you need to bring it.
