Tucked away at the corner of the pond overlooked by a Scot’s pine is Bittern. Now we haven’t spotted one of Britain’s most elusive birds yet, but you may be the first! Brew a fresh coffee on the campfire sit back in your comfy chair, wrapped up in your wool blanket and keep a close eye on the visiting wildlife and listen out for the deep booming call of a lonesome bittern.
All of our tents look out onto the Pond which has many visitors & residents including moorhen, mallard, otter, kingfisher, heron, snipe, bat, fox & badger. The Woods extend for nearly 5 acres and is packed with wildlife, flora & fauna and you are free to explore. Our parking is also close to the entrance gate. Our garden extends to nearly 2 acres with our house at the top which is where you will find the facilities and the tents around the pond at the foot of the garden.
Inside you’ll find...
A ‘x4 poster’ style bed with our bespoke fabric print privacy screen of a Bittern, luxury white cotton covers & sheet with a 10.5 tog duvet and four pillows with room to hang your clothes.
