The Owner Says
The tent is furnished with a 'proper' kingsized bed, wood burner for any chilly nights, feather duvets, pillows and come with good quality white linens and towels. Outside on the deck you have a table and chairs alongside your own BBQ. We provide (we hope) everything you need for a relaxed stay -candle lanterns, a torch, firelighters, charcoal, and some hot water bottles and extra blankets in case it gets a bit chilly. We also have fire pits to use - toast marshmallows and just chat. The best conversations happen in the dark! Baskets of logs are £5.
There is a small kitchen area with all of the crockery, glasses and utensils you could need along with a fridge, kettle, microwave and toaster to conjour up a breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast! If we have enough eggs from our chickens, ducks and geese you are most welcome to get creative.
The shower room has a shower better than ours in the house (we are a little bit envious!) and it is heated if it needs it. We also have proper flushing loo's - no compost toilets here!
There are sockets for the hair straighteners (you're Glamping and we consider straighteners an essential!) and for charging the phone although we actively encourage our guests to switch off the devices and just sit for a while. Look at the view and take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
PLEASE NOTE, IF YOUR BOOKING INCLUDES MORE THAN TWO CHILDREN, PLEASE CALL TO CONFIRM BEFORE COMPLETING.
Features & FacilitiesTwo large 5m bell tents. Both are fully furnished with kingsize beds, feather duvets, pillows and have wood-burning stoves. Shared shower, loos and fully-equipped kitchen area with everything you need – cafetieres, a kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave with crockery and cutlery galore. Even though you are spending nights under canvas, there is a heated shower room and proper flushing loos and somewhere to plug in the hair straighteners. No electricity in tents but plenty of power points in converted stable. Raised wooden decking has table and chairs outside. No campfires but we do have firepits.
The historic Wye market town of Ludlow boasts an enchanting mix of medieval and Tudor architecture. Try and visit for the annual Ludlow Arts Festival every June. Vibrant cathedral city Hereford has a wealth of gorgeous Jacobean attractions – be sure to drop by The Old House (01432 260694) and The Hereford Cider Museum (01432 354207). The site is ideally placed to acces the Black and White Trail and numerous other walking and cycling routes. Berrington Hall, Croft Castle and Hampton Court Castle are all fabulous NT properties with beautiful grounds. Pretty market town of Ledbury is about thirty minutes away. Hereford Cathedral with it's world famous Mappa Mundi and the Cider Museum are great for overcast days. Malvern and the home of Elgar are about 40 minutes away with the Malvern Hills a popular place to walk.
Food & Drink
Both tents have their own BBQ for grilling some of those famous Herefordshire burgers. There's plenty of decent pubs nearby. The White Swan (01544 388635) in Eardisland is a classic village pub with a friendly, welcoming vibe. The Royal Oak Hotel (01568 612610) in Leominster does a great carvery. This part of the world is famous for it's ales. Be sure to sample a drop of Weston's 'Butty Bach' – Welsh for "little mate". The Wharton Court Food Centre- who do great breakfasts- is a couple of miles away too. The Stagg at Titley was, in 2001, the first pub to be awarded a Michelin star which it has retained. It is advisable to book well in advance if you would like to eat in the restaurant but the bar is always open! Ludlow has La Becasse – another award winning restaurant – but there are plenty of simpler places to eat in easy reach if you fancy just fish and chips and a pint!
Situated in the peaceful Herefordshire countryside between the teeny villages of Ivington and Aulden. About ten miles from Hereford and the same from Ludlow. Five miles west of Leominster (say 'Lemster' or the locals will look at you oddly!)
If you feel like easing your way off the chairs, there are lots of local walks, stunning National Trust properties nearby, the famous Black and White trail or you could head off for foodie adventures in Hereford or Ludlow – both are around 13 miles away. And don’t forget – you are in the home of proper cider so it would be rude not to visit a couple of local producers while you are here.
The nearest railway station is Leominster. Moira or David are happy to pick you up.
