New for 2015 is our wood fired breakfastWildcamping is open April until end Sept 2015. We have refreshed our approach to pricing and opted for season-less dates (no keeping to school holidays) and a simpler price structure which means it is cheaper than last year! We hope you find it works for you too. If you are unable to pay the full amount then let us know and we’ll try to help out by offering you to trade your time, to work on the land, as part of your payment. Please ask for a booking code if you would like to book with Channel Islands Direct who offer discounted travel. Rocquaine Regatta is on 25th July 2015, and we have offers for the Food Festival 18th-25th Sept.
Timeless simplicity with classic comforts in Safari or Tipi (traditional, sustainably sourced and made in UK) canvas tents, sheltered cooking in a horse box kitchen, or rustling up your food over the embers in the hearth of the fire pit, rocket stove or on a fire bowl (we have a communal outdoor cooking trunk full of pans, kettles etc.). You’ll be met with a freshly homemade sweet treat with tea, plus a hand-made gift. Bring your towel, but leave your sleeping bag at home as you tuck yourselves up on a cosy fouton which can be packed away in the day if you want more space. The Safari has a wood burner (plus hot water bottles). Tents can accommodate families of 4-5 people. The fully equipped option so just turn up. We will have everything ready and waiting for you and your family/friends/guests including comfortable sleeping arrangements (double and single fouton beds) with bedding and pillows, full cooking facilities, space and comfort for relaxing plus a gift on arrival (see FAQ’s for more).

Share our passion for foraging with An introduction to WildFood workshop/walk. Or join our ‘Land hand’ scheme: embrace working and living with the land, learn together and from each other, sharing skills and time.
Each space has a wooden base to ensure feet stay mud-free. Coir matting inside under foot. Cooking is provided by gas stoves in the horsebox kitchen plus open fire pits. All that you need to prepare your food is there for you with basic condiments, oil, tea etc, in a unique style reflecting our passion for reclaimed and recycled items. Homely toilets and showers (we have a roll top bath for those who fancy a soak) are communal and close by in the green oak barn. Wind up torches and fairy lights provide lighting.
The pitches are surrounded by mature blackthorn trees and old vines, giving a real sense of being amongst nature. Inside your tent is a wild food/nature library, skim boards, body boards, fishing nets to use.
Private entrances for all pitches are through hidden ‘doorways’ in blackthorn. A pond with edible plants borders the area, safe for children and wildlife! Secret paths and places to’ be quiet’ are scattered amongst the land, leading to views, personal spaces and bringing you closer to your environment
Extra treats: Choose a hedge veg basket (with foraged food) or food basket from the hamper or wood fired breakfast options in Green living, local food section, or a veggie meal (vegetarian pies, pasties and tartlets).
Please give us a call or email (see contact us) for available dates and to chat about what you would like. A booking form and details will be sent out to you, with welcome information once your payment/deposit (by cheque or paypal) has been received which will confirm your space.
There are glass houses on the land and potential dangers of blackthorn shrubs, uneven ground, brambles and nettles. We would ask any parent/guardian who is visiting or staying with us to be responsible for any young person in their care. See FAQ’s for more detail.
