The Owner Says
Our cosy, insulated Woodcutter Huts are double glazed and the décor is warm tweed; the perfect woodland retreat if you’re looking for more comfort than a traditional tent. These comfortable huts are perfect for a romantic retreat or for families with young children, they are equipped with a king-sized bed and a double sofa bed.
All of the tents at Jolly Days are set within 15 acres of a 200 acre woodland with no tents closer than 15 metres and many much further than that. Being in a quiet woodland you can expect to hear the murmur of voices, occasional laughter and the natural wildlife, all adding to the feeling of escaping life. Jollydays Glamping attracts couples, groups, families, reunions, walkers, non campers, the young and old.
Your tent is kitted out with bedding and furniture but don't forget to bring a torch, clothes, shampoo and other personal cleaning products, Food and drink, slippers and wellies!
