Meadow Keeper’s Cottage

A Quirky cottage-on-wheels…accommodates 4 people

If you know your fairy stories – think gingerbread cottage and you’ve got the idea.  The cottage sits between two wildflower meadows, next to a pond and is invisible from anywhere else on the farm.

Inside:

Double bed, two singles that double up as benches, a fold-away dining table between them, an indoor cooking area with gas hob and sink, a small wardrobe and, for chilly evenings, a log burner.

All bedding, towels, cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery are provided along with a cooler box for your food and drink. We also provide rechargeable lanterns for your use.  Please note that the cottage is totally off-grid – there is no electricity supply.

Open the stable door, and go down the steps to your own fire pit equipped with BonFire cooking kit, and an outdoor dining area.

Meadow Keeper’s cottage has its own private pond – often frequented by Heron, and sometimes visited by Kingfishers – it’s the perfect place for bird watching.  There’s also a little row boat for those feeling adventurous.

Facilities

There is an outside tap connected to mains drinking water.

Log fired shower which we will teach you how to light once you’re here.

And at a discreet distance is your very own compost loo!

Woodcutter’s Cottage

The Woodcutter’s cottage is similar to the Meadow Keeper’s cottage but a woodier version with woody features!
A cottage-on-wheels made of wood and surrounded by wood. It’s another one-off, custom made by local carpenters and woodsmen from locally sourced timber.

Inside:
A double bed, two singles that double up as benches, a dining table, an indoor cooking area with gas hob and sink, and a log burner.

All bedding, towels, cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery are provided along with a cooler box for your food and drink. We will also provide rechargeable lanterns for your use. Please note that the cottage is totally off-grid – there is no electricity supply.

Just outside is your own firepit equipped with BonFire cooking kit, and an outdoor dining area.

The Cabins

We have two cosy wooden cabins – Wood and Penfold – which sit on wooden decks in the Beckley Bowl – a field so called because it is almost a natural amphitheatre. The field sits in the middle of the farm and backs on to a wood. The cabins have been sited at the bottom of this hillside field next to a pond, which is regularly home to a family of moorhens.

Inside:
Each cabin sleeps up to four people. There is one double bed and up to two single beds (or travel cots) can be added. All bedding and towels are provided, along with hot water bottles for those who are worried about feeling chilly.

Each cabin has a woodburning stove inside to keep you warm at night They each have a little kitchen area inside too – with a two ring gas hob and grill. Outside each has its own firepit equipped with BonFire cooking kit. The site has a shared covered kitchen area and there you will find a gas oven for those who prefer to cook more conventionally.

There is a covered dining area – shared by both cabins – and we provide all the necessary camping crockery, cutlery and useful kitchen tools you need along with a cooler box for your food and drink. We also provide rechargeable lanterns for your use.

The cabins are far enough apart for you to enjoy your own privacy and there’s space enough to share the facilities without crowding other guests. But for those families wanting to holiday with friends – why not hire both cabins and have the space entirely to yourselves? We’ve found this works perfectly for family get-togethers or friends with children of similar ages.

Please note the site is totally off-grid – there is no electricity supply.

Facilities

In an adjacent field approximately 20 metres away from the camp site we have one outdoor wood fired shower and hand basin.

There are also two purpose built compost loos – the operation of which we will explain when you get here!

Catering

Our camping breaks are self-catering but we do provide a welcome pack of groceries to get you started.

We also offer guests the chance to purchase Breakfast Boxes and BBQ boxes to make self-catering easier.   All our grocery boxes contain locally sourced produce, organic where possible.

We also have a fabulous local chef who offers a campsite catering service for our guests – homecooked meals delivered ready for reheating on your campfire.  Orders must be placed 24 hours’ in advance.

And if that doesn’t suit we aren’t too far from the local shop.
