FAQs

  • No, unfortunately we cannot accept anyone under 18 to stay on site without an adult. Of course, under 18s are more than welcome if you’re accompanied by an adult over 21 years old.

  • We have a 2 night minimum booking policy, but please feel free to enquire about single nights as sometimes we have space in the calendar which we can offer for 1 night stays. We’ll do our best to accommodate your requests, but 2 nights minimum is our standard practice.

  • Check in is any time from 2pm and check out is 10am. If you have requests outside of this, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

    Please be patient with us if we’ve not quite finished changeover by 2pm! If there is only one of us, it can be quite a challenge to finish all of the tents to the standard we want, but we’d rather keep check-in at 2pm not later so usually you get more time to enjoy the site. We provide chairs and tables outside the tents and by the kitchenette so you can still come in and enjoy the view whilst we finish off!

  • Our bell tents are set up for 2 adults sharing a double bed with some space to relax inside with casual chairs etc. We can also arrange 2 additional single floor beds to go into the tents, which are generally used for families with children. This is also a good option for latitude festival when prices are a little higher and you’re happy to share a tent with friends! So the short answer is 2 or 4.

  • Each bell tent has a parking space assigned in our car park less than 100m from the bell tents. Please use the space signposted with the name of your bell tent. If you have a particularly large car or are bringing more than one, please let us know in advance so arrangements can be made.

  • No, unfortunately at this time we don’t allow dogs on site to ensure those with allergies don’t suffer.

  • This is glamping, not camping, so we believe we’ve covered all bases in terms of equipment, facilities and bedding. All you need is a towel, your clothes, food and drink and you’re good to go! For a full packing list and confirmation of what we provide, please refer to our accommodation page.

  • Our beds are lovely and warm with goose down duvets so you’ll have no problems when it comes to sleep time, but it is England after all so it can get pretty chilly when you’re sat out under the stars! At the beginning and end of the season, it’s always chillier so we’d suggest warm layers to wrap up around your firepit, and we have spare blankets in each tent to snuggle up in. If you’re not going straight to bed, you may want to light up the log burner inside – these make the tents more toasty!

    A tip from us: if you’re going straight to bed when you get into the tents, don’t light the log burner! The beds are very warm already, so with a log burner going too you will definitely be too hot. Try out the beds first! Also they mustn’t be left unattended when lit so please don’t fall asleep with them going!

  • Each tent has solar-powered lighting with 2 bulbs, along with various candle lanterns. Please use these with care and keep away from children, furnishings and the tents themselves.

  • Please see our ‘Things To Do’ page for a taster, then once you’re arrived you’ll find a welcome pack with more details on where to eat, local attractions and natural beauty spots.

  • There are options! Each bell tent has its own BBQ and you can buy replacement fire kits once the first one is used up. You also have your own fire pit but this is more suited to marshmallow toasting. The kitchenette also has an electric 2 ring hob and saucepans if you’ve had your fill of BBQ food! Or give the log burner in your tent a go for the good old-fashioned version of a stove.

  • You can either do it the camping way (using your log burner as a stove and camping kettle provided in your tent), or do it the glamping way – use the shared kettle in our kitchenette. Tea and coffee are provided along with mugs, but please bring your own milk to store in the shared fridge.

  • Our shared kitchenette has all the basics you need for a nice weekend in the country – fridge (AKA wine fridge), 2 ring electric hob, sink, kettle, coffee machine, utensils, cutlery, crockery (well technically it’s melamine), tea towels and washing up essentials. There are also some basics such as salt, pepper, olive oil, tea, coffee & sugar – please keep these in the kitchen for all to share. There’s also an honesty box in the kitchen with a variety of things you may have forgotten, please use honestly, as and when you need!

  • Please return all kitchen items washed up to the kitchenette. If you have time to strip the beds, feel free to help us out, otherwise, simply head out when you’re ready (check out is by 10am) and zip the door behind you to keep wildlife out!

  • Each tent has a solar-powered charging unit with 2 USB points and a 12V cigarette lighter. Simply bring your charger cable and plug in. The sunlight from the day keeps this unit topped up with power but please note, the lights also run off this so be aware of energy usage and turn the lights off when not in use, to ensure there’s power when you need it.

  • Yes, the coverage in Uggeshall is generally medium to strong.
