"This place is wonderful. If you want seclusion, beauty and a luxury camping experience this is the place"
Derwen is our most popular Bell Tent, right on the banks of the river. Sit quietly on the deck and you might spot an otter swimming past. This 5 meter tent sleeps 4 with ease (1 double bed, 1 double futon). Because of its location right next to the river this tent may not be suitable for very young children, but is perfect for spotting the rivers wildlife.
Our Bell tents are all tucked away in corners of the farms hay meadows. We put them up mid April and take them down late September every year. Each has a unique feel due to its location, but all have the same comforts and equipment needed to make your stay a comfortable and relaxing one. Our Bell Tents are on a wooden deck to keep you away from that dewy morning grass. Each has a private “Camp Kitchen” outside with a gas hob, cool box, and all the cooking / eating equipment you should need, as well as a table and benches and covered eating area.There is also a fire pit area with BBQ grill by each tent.
Each tent has a woodburner to keep you cosy inside on those evening you are not sat around the campfire gazing at the stars. A complimentary basket of logs is provided.
Bedding is included.
There are 2 showers, 2 compost loos and 2 washing up sinks located near the tents. There is a farm shop in the barn in the yard with a phone charging point, and firewood, kindling, charcoal, and sustainably produced BBQ meats available to purchase.
Please note all our tents and pitches are situated in a Car Free Zone. There is parking in the yard area, and we provide wheelbarrows to help you carry things to your tent. The tents are situated down a farm track that has a steep section at the start and some rough areas. It may not be suitable for people with reduced mobility, and it is not suitable for wheelchair access.
