Glamping at Wildcamping is open mid May until end Sept 2017.
You have 3 options to stay on our land: The Forager Tipi, The Seashore Safari tent or The Woodsman Ger. All offer timeless simplicity with classic comforts in canvas tents (traditional, sustainably sourced and made in UK). Each with its own bespoke sheltered cooking area, or rustle up your food over the embers in the hearth of the fire pit, rocket stove or on a fire bowl. You’ll be met with a freshly homemade sweet treat with wild herbal tea, plus a hand-made gift. Bring your towel, but leave your sleeping bag at home as you tuck yourselves up on a cosy double bed/single fouton .All fully equipped so just turn up. The kitchen is stocked with the basics that you need from sea salt to organic cider vinegar, wood to get yourself going with the rocket fire stove to black pepper (one peppercorns, the other a wild alternative!)
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. Chargeable lanterns and fairy lights provide lighting. We have kits and ideas for activities for you to borrow, like a ‘nettle picking kit’, ‘crabbing kit’, snorkel, fins and mask, body boards for the children, ideas to engage with the natural environment.
The pitches are surrounded by mature blackthorn trees and natural hedging giving a real sense of being amongst nature. Inside your tent is a small library, toys/games to suit you/your family. Flowers await you.
Private entrances for all pitches are through hidden ‘doorways’ in blackthorn. Winding paths and places to’ be quiet’ are scattered amongst the land, leading to views, personal spaces and bringing you closer to your environment
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. Visit Guernsey has heaps of information to help you plan your visit.
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.
