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.
We try to keep things green at Home Farm so the generator that powers the showers goes on at 8 am and runs until 11 am. Of course, if you would like a shower outside these times please just let one of the team know- just be sure to do this before 10 pm as we don't want the generator keeping your fellow campers up!
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 newspaper and if you're not a seasoned pro it's always worth bringing firelighters.
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. And while we do provide everything else for your fire and BBQ, we always recommend bringing your own fire lighters.
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. We also have a lot of birds and other wildlife so if you're a light sleeper and don't fancy being woken up at daybreak by a grumpy pheasant then earplugs might be a good idea.
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.
