ADDITIONAL SITE INFO
Access to the site is along farm tracks which are bumpy and can get muddy during wet weather or dusty when its dry. We therefore recommend that you leave your sportscar at home!
Check out is at 10 am on the day of departure. Please settle any money owed before leaving.
With the exception of assistance dogs, unfortunately we are unable to accept guest's dogs on our site as it is a working farm with livestock and an abundance of wildlife.
All water around the site is drinkable; water containers can be filled at any of the taps or standpipes.
Honey Pot Meadow is recommended for adults, while The Lakes lends itself better to to families and groups with children. However, due to the lack of barriers between the site and the water’s edge, we feel our sites are not suitable for children under 5 or who are unable to swim.
Feel free to explore the beautiful walks on the farm. You’ll find a map with designated walks and nature trails in your guest folder. Please remember that this is a working farm so be aware of natural hazards, farm machinery and livestock when walking.
You are likely to see several types of deer on the farm including Roe, Red and Muntjac - the barking deer. They are wild and roam freely. If you are lucky enough to be here during the rutting season (late September to early November) you may well hear their prehistoric sounding roar!
We have a herd of Belted Galloway cattle, the bovine equivalent of a liquorice all-sort. We suggest you admire them from your side of the fence and not theirs. If however, your walk does take you through their field please move calmly, stay clear of cows with calves and make sure you close the gates behind you.
County Wildlife Site
The River Thet runs around the farm and is our boundary. There is a County Wildlife site at Honeypot Meadow.
We provide an initial, complimentary supply of wood, kindling and firelighters to get you started. Additional fire wood, kindling, firelighters and sacks of charcoal are available to purchase on site. You can pay with cash or online.
At The Lakes you will find a selection of board games and books in the Nest. There is also a small selection of outdoor games in the Surf Shack. If you are playing ball games please be considerate to your fellow glampers.
At Honeypot Meadow you will find a scrabble set and pack of cards in the Sundowner.
We recycle cardboard, plastic and cans all together (Black bin). Please rinse out your containers. General waste (Green bin) and Glass have their own bins, however if the glass bin is full, it can go with the other recycling.
Each hut at Honeypot Meadow has its own wood fired hot tub (seating 2 people); it takes around 2 hours for the water to heat up.
At The Lakes there is one larger communal tub (seating 4-5 people), which can take 2-3 hours to heat up. Since COVID19 we have restricted this to one booking per night. You will need to book this in advance.
All hot tubs are fully cleaned and re-filled with fresh water between guests and will be stocked with wood ready for you to light.
The Nest (Lakes)
is our communal area for you to cook, eat, relax and socialise in. Light the wood burner, snuggle down in a comfy sofa and watch the wildlife.
You will also find a selection of games, maps, books and information on local attractions and activities.
The Lakes site has a large wood-fired oven for authentic-tasting pizzas. Both huts at Honey Pot Meadow also have their own Ooni pizza ovens.
Everyone can get involved and make their own - perfect for fussy eaters.
We also have pizza hampers which you can pre-order, full of everything you need including dough, sauce, cheese and toppings. See our Glamper Hampers page for details.
Both sites are entirely off-grid, with all electricity provided by solar power. Please be as green as possible with your energy use, as once the batteries are depleted, you will have to wait until the sun shines for them to recharge!
At The Lakes, there are plug sockets in The Nest and Outdoor Kitchen only. The huts and yurts have no sockets, but do have lighting. Outdoor areas are lit with solar lanterns, fairy lights and festoon lights.
Huts at Honey Pot Meadow have several plug sockets, lights, electric towel rails and digital pellet burners. These warm them the huts up quickly on chilly mornings, but if left on at high temperatures for too long, will deplete the batteries rapidly.
We can provide Glamper Hampers for you to enjoy during your stay. Please give 1 weeks notice to organise these. We aim to source all our ingredients locally where possible.
We have 3 hampers available: Cooked Breakfast, Lighter Breakfast or Pizza.
Showers and Loos
We provide environmentally friendly shower gel, shampoo and conditioner in all of our showers. Our loos are all flushing, however can only take paper and human waste. Please dispose of anything else in the bins provided.
There are several lakes at the Lakes but please only swim in the main lake adjacent to the site.
There are two lakes at Honeypot Meadow however for your safety please only swim in the left-hand lake, nearest the huts.
Please take care when swimming as the water will be refreshingly cold. Read and take note of the provided guidelines on safe wild swimming here and in your guest folder.
Cars and Parking
For safety, we are a car-free glamp site. Each hut has a designated parking space on hard standing. Please leave your car here and use the carts provided to transport your gear to your hut. We ask that guests don't park on the grass, as this can become very boggy and churned up (resulting in cars getting stuck). There is space for a few extra cars, however larger groups will need to car share.
Sundowner Huts (Honey Pot)
Each hut has its own Sundowner, an elevated living space with sofa, wood burner, BBQ and terrace to eat on. The perfect place to kick off your shoes and settle down with a drink to watch the sun go down.
We want all guests to enjoy a peaceful stay with us and respectfully ask you to keep noise to a minimum after 9pm. All noise must cease at 11pm. We are also unable to permit any loud or amplified music at any time. If we receive complaints about your noise level or behaviour, we will issue a warning, but if you persist we will ask you to leave the site and no money will be refunded.
Please leave the accommodation and the facilities as you found them and let us know about any damages when they happen. Should any facilities, equipment be damaged wilfully, or through inappropriate use you will be held responsible for the cost of repair or replacement of that item.
There are sometimes Welsh mountain ponies grazing in a nature reserve at the Lakes. Feel free to walk in this area, but you may attract the attention of inquisitive ponies. Please don’t feed the ponies and remember to close the gates behind you.
Wood and Pellet Stoves
Each hut and The Nest has a wood or pellet stove. Please refer to the Guest information folder or our equipment instructions page for guidance on how to light these to keep you lovely and warm.
Your accommodation, the loos, showers and communal areas are all non-smoking areas. Please dispose of any cigarette butts in the bins to protect the wildlife.
There is none! Try to turn off your screens and enjoy the tranquillity and beauty that nature has to offer.
Don't worry if you are unable to switch off completely though... most guests find that they have a fairly reliable 3G/4G reception.
We have hybrid paddleboards at both sites, a topper boat at the Lakes and a rowing boat at Honeypot Meadow for you to enjoy along with universal fit buoyancy aids. You could even brave wild swimming! Please take care when enjoying these activities and ensure that you read our safety guidance beforehand. Use of the lakes and watercraft are at your own risk.
