The tipi is a magnificent structure and provides accommodation for four people as well as being wonderful for a romantic break away for a couple.
There's nothing quite like the woodburning stove at night with the flames flickering to create a warm, comfortable and extremely relaxing atmosphere, far from the pressures of the world. It is located at the end of the campsite and therefore relatively private.
Last year we totally revamped the tipi so it's larger, has a lovely painted white lining, a wooden floor and raised beds. It has a beautifully ornate cast iron woodstove (with a fireguard). Furnished with four wooden bed bases - two singles and a double - all of which are covered with comfortable mattresses, pillows and throws, together with large cushions, and a wonderful cow hide! And we've just installed (April 2017) a new 8 kw woodburning stove which will keep you wonderfully warm.
There are also bean bags, a storage trunk full of extra blankets, a low table, a two ringed calor gas camping stove, a wooden chest and all your cooking equipment – pans, frying pan, plates, kettle, mugs and cutlery. The wooden floor is covered with rugs and sheepskins. Lighting is provided by a string of LEDs with hanging lanterns to create a warm and exceptionally cosy atmosphere. We also supply firelighters and a good supply of chopped, dry and seasoned hardwood in a basket.
Outside the tipi is a campfire area with benches and a picnic bench.
We will give you guidance when you arrive on the use of the fire and cover all health and safety issues, including a door of the facilities. We are generally always available and are only too willing to give assistance if any is required.
Not recommended for small children in early spring or autumn.
