Yes, it is actually possible to turn your phone off for a while and rediscover the lost art of conversation over here at Redrock Glamping. It's not on some remote island either – this place is eight miles from Maidstone and only about 10 minutes’ drive from the M20, mighty handy if you need a mini escape from London life.
Sorry kids, you’re staying elsewhere as this one’s adults only (nothing personal, it’s just that grownups need a little bit of quiet space sometimes). Aside from a handful of fellow guests, your neighbours on site will mainly be the Highland cattle, Hebridean sheep, pigs and chickens that live here all year round. You may also be joined by some passing wildlife in the hedgerows and wildflower meadows around the place.
Your tent may be devoid of electricity but you’ll soon find that both survival and comfort are entirely possible. You’ll have a barbecue and gas hob for cooking, a coolbox for food storage, a firepit for keeping warm and plenty of battery-powered lanterns and torches. Other provisions include a basic larder (tea, coffee, oil and spices), crockery, cutlery, bedlinen and towels. Logs, firelighters and charcoal can be picked up at the farm.
For the ultimate in low-food-miles feasts, you can buy your meat directly from farm owners Ruth and Norman to take back to the barbecue on your pitch. Make sure you pick up extra provisions for a big breakfast the next day out on your private deck – nothing beats the smell and sound of an alfresco sizzling sausage of a morning. Other bits and bobs you might need can be acquired at the supermarket three miles away.
A short walk from your tent there’s a toilet block and showers block, with proper flushing toilets and hot showers.
So… how does going off-grid sound to you now...?
On your door step are some of Kents finest attractions including Leeds Castle, Bedgebury Pinetum and the historical towns of Canterbury and Rochester.
Glamping Site Facilities
Tents are on flat timber decking, which also accommodates a firepit, sun chairs and BBQ (plus colourful wind breaks to create your own sun trap). Bell tents have traditional rugs and coir matting, furnished with a double bed, armchair, folding table-and-chair set and storage chest, plus a compact kitchenette, with everything you need, including a gas-fired hob, crockery, cutlery, a basic larder (oil, spices, tea, coffee) and cool box (ice-packs replenished). Linen, towels, torches, games, playing cards, extra batteries, firelighters, a local OS map and Redrock's Handbook to Glamping at Roundoak also provided. Initial bucket of logs supplied (more available to purchase). There are also 3 basic 'pop-up' bell tents, fitted out with only coir matting, a small table and with a firepit outside. Futon beds and BBQs can also be supplied at an extra cost. Basic but well-maintained toilet and shower facilities, as well as a covered washing up area.
