SITE INFORMATION

Access

Access to the site is along farm tracks which are bumpy. Do not come in your sports car!

Check Out

Check out is at 11 am on the day of departure. Please settle any money owed to the honesty shop before leaving.

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.

Water

All water around the site is drinkable; water containers can be filled at any of the taps or standpipes.

Children

Honey Pot Meadow is an adult only retreat however if both huts are booked by the same group we are happy to welcome children and can provide a bell tent to accommodate them if needed. Due to the lack of barriers between the site and the water’s edge this site is not suitable for children under 5 or who are unable to swim. Children are welcome at The Lakes

Farm

Feel free to explore the beautiful walks on the farm. You’ll find a map with designated walks and nature trails at the back of this booklet and a big map in the Nest. Please remember that this is a working farm so be aware of natural hazards, farm machinery and livestock when walking.

Deer

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!

Cattle

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.

Fire Wood

Additional wood is available to purchase in two different sizes (small for the wood-burners and larger for the fire pits) from each site. Please leave £5 per trug in the jar.

Games

At The Lakes you will find a selection of board games and books in the Nest. If you are playing ball games please be considerate to your fellow glampers. At Honeypot Meadow you will find a selection of games in your hut.

Rubbish

We recycle cardboard, plastic, cans and glass altogether. Please rinse out your containers. General waste and compost are separate bins.

Hot Tubs

Each hut at Honeypot Meadow has its own wood fired hot tub; it takes around 2 hours for the water to heat up. For a small charge we will heat the tub prior to your arrival and chill down a bottle of Norfolk fizz for you to enjoy whilst watching the sun go down. If you are staying for more than three nights we will replace the water in your tub. At The Lakes there is one large communal tub.

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.

Pizza Ovens

The Lakes site has a large wood-fired oven for authentic-tasting pizzas. Everyone can get involved and make their own - perfect for fussy eaters.

We also have pizza hampers (see below) which you can purchase, full of everything you need including dough, sauce, cheese and toppings.

Both huts at Honey Pot Meadow also have their own gas fired pizza ovens.

Solar Power

Both sites are entirely off-grid, all electricity is provided by solar power. Please try and be as green as possible with your energy use and turn off lights when not needed.

At The Lakes, screens can only be charged in the Nest.

Huts at Honey Pot Meadow have kick heaters to warm them up quickly on chilly mornings, please don’t leave these on for more than 20 minutes as it will deplete the batteries rapidly.

Hampers

We can provide various hampers for you to enjoy during your stay. Please give 72 hours notice to organise these. We aim to source all our ingredients locally.

We have 5 hampers available: Breakfast, BBQ, Pizza, Stargazer and Kids Campfire Cook Kit. You can select these when you book on the website.

Showers and Loos

We have provided environmentally friendly phosphate free shower gel and shampoo. We will replenish these throughout your stay. Our loos can only take paper and human waste. Please dispose of anything else in the bins provided.

Wild Swimming

There are several lakes at the Lakes but please only swim in the main lake adjacent to the site. Please take care when swimming as the water will be refreshingly cold. Read and take note of the enclosed guidelines on safe wild swimming.

There are two lakes at Honeypot Meadow however for your safety please only swim in the left-hand lake.

Cars and Parking

For safety, we are a car-free glamp site. Each hut has a designated parking space, please leave your car here and use the carts provided to transport your gear to your hut. We can help if needed.

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.

Noise

We want all guests to enjoy a peaceful stay with us, and respectfully ask you to keep noise to a minimum after 10.30pm. 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.

Damages

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.

Ponies

There are 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 Pellet Stoves

Each hut and The Nest has a wood pellet stove. Please refer to the Guest information folder for instructions on how to light these to keep you lovely and warm.

Smoking

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.

Wifi

There is none! Turn off your screens and enjoy the tranquillity and beauty that nature has to offer.
