Covid and glamping

Glamping under Covid restrictions

We are now looking forward to opening on the 4th July, in line with government guidance. It’s been a tough few months for many and we know people need a break.  At the same time there’s still fear and uncertainty about what to expect from a holiday like glamping.

Glamping is all about being free to enjoy the outdoors without the discomfort of hard floors and no facilities. It’s also about privacy and space, so no surprise then that so many lovely people want to stay here this summer after an enforced period of isolation and lack of outdoor space. But will Covid protection measures mar your holiday?  Well for us luckily there are no shared facilities on site. No shared bathrooms or kitchens, camp fires or hot tubs – everything is private.  The only place you could bump into someone is our horse box pantry. Given it’s so small, its a one person shopping experience anyway!  We only have three tents, so maximum there are 18 people and as we have acres of land you can always find a private spot.

Clean and safe

To make sure you and your clan are safe we include all hand wash, sanitizer and cleaning equipment, so no need to come armed with mops and antibac – we’ve got it covered. Our cleaning team which includes Myself, my daughter Imi and the lovely Josephine will be making sure the place is super clean as always. Sheets and towels are professionally laundered, and hot tubs cleaned down between guests. So rest assured.

Exploring and days out

The human spirit to want to explore and discover new places and experiences lives on.  This lock down time has emphasized how lucky we are to be able to travel learn and meet new people. Glamping has often been thought of as soft camping – but it is so much more than that.

Many camp sites can’t cater for the experiential things our guests yearn fr like camp fires, or bathing under the stars.  Space and uniqueness are all part of glamping. Where else can you go and stay with tree trunks in your bedroom or upstairs lofts in your tent. More than that, access to acres of open farm land to picnic and building dens in hidden places is all part of the adventure.

New unique experiences on site

This year because of social distancing and the fact that our brilliant local pub may not be open we are looking at offering private dining in our ‘shack’ a restaurant experience in the outdoors. Or you could make your own pizzas in the fire pit oven.  We are exploring working with local specialists to offer pilates or yoga, learning to cook over fire or foraging.

All these things are great to learn and experience something new. More than anything the Malvern hills and Forest of Dean offers so much to do and explore it is just great to get out to explore somewhere new.

No risk booking

We totally understand it is tough to commit to booking a break when you don;t know what the future holds. So to help we’ve decided to offer some flexibility by

  • reducing deposits to just 20% to secure dates.
  • Deferring balance due dates to  just 2 weeks before arrival. 
  • We will refund any bookings if government restrictions on travel impact your holiday plans or if you prefer offer alternative dates.
