The Owner Says
Estelle is a five-metre furnished bell tent. It is equipped with a double bed so is best suited to a couple but could also accommodate a cot. It can also accommodate three or four people but ONLY if the Baby Bell Annexe tent is booked alongside (select under 'Extras'). Eco friendly low energy LED lighting is available in each tent powered by a solar panel for convenience and candlepower for ambience.
All our tents are situated on wooden bases and have comfortable outdoor furniture and you can choose to cooking on gas or an open fire: perhaps a gas ring for that morning cup of coffee and the Kadai Fire bowl for barbecues and toasting marshmallows! There are mains-powered fridges and charging points for each tent as well as a cool box inside the tents for the morning milk.
A luxuriously-appointed shower room is exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. A ‘Guest Barn’ is kitted out for our guests’ use, and is fully-equipped to cater for up to 20 guests, complete with a range cooker adjacent to our original bread oven, in which we will cook you handmade pizzas. There's also a communal fire pit/barbecue area where everyone can get together for socialising and marshmallow roasting and a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by decking and more comfortable furniture.
Features & Facilities
Each tent is individually designed, all are furnished with Vintage French furniture; beds and mattresses, with all bedding, linen, tea-towels, bathroom & pool towels provided. The tents are set on solid bases to ensure a flat, stable base and are 'carpeted' with coir matting, chests for clothing and personal items and a dresser stocked with all glassware, crockery, cookware etc that you could possibly want, making a true home from home. Low energy, solar powered LED lights alongside candles and, of course, campfires. Outdoor dining table and comfortable director's chairs, under the shade of an additional canopy during high summer. Options of a gas ring for morning cuppas or a Kadai fire bowl, which can be used for BBQs, heating food in the suspended tripod pot or on a specially designed pan. There is a mains-powered fridge in 'the old pig sty'; one for each tent, with a coolbox and ice blocks too... A second 'Guest barn' houses a dining and cooking area, complete with a range cooker, cooking utensils, pots, pans and crockery, plus gadget charging points. In this barn there is also an ancient bread/pizza oven where we cook fresh pizzas on 'Pizza nights'. Private, luxury shower rooms in a third, centuries-old barn, exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. Outdoor Swimming pool, surrounded by decking and furniture. Communal firepit and BBQ area, a lovely spot for star-gazing nights - the light pollution here is some of the lowest experienced in Europe – the picture on our Home Page was taken in the garden on the night we bought the house! Complimentary tea & coffee, basic cooking essentials such as salt, pepper, oil plus washing up liquid and lavatory paper are provided.
NEW FOR 2019 - 'Medieval' style marquee in the orchard, providing another place to relax and socialise in the shade, also ideal for group dining. Solar shower hut - your chance to shower with a view with water heated by the sun. Comfy deckchairs by each tent provide another venue for whiling away time whilst reading your book, with a cool drink, or perhaps a snooze after lunch? 'Annexe' tents - we have smaller, 3m diameter, bell tents that can be erected on the same pitch, furnished with one or two single beds giving parents and older children alike more privacy ( 2 available).
