Relax in our deluxe 5m round canvas tent, complete with carpet and furnished with a comfortable queen bed and stunning decor. Everything you need for a relaxing weekend is provided.
Each site will have its own custom made private bathroom with a hot shower and a portable flush toilet.
All you need to bring is your clothes and food - and even the food we can help arrange for you.
Guests can access their glamping site via mountain bike, kayak or car.
The access road to the site is a little rough, lots of potholes and bumps, however a normal car with a bit of clearance can generally get through with little trouble.
Please note this location is based on a farm bordering a scenic reserve. Typical of farms in the area the grass is dry and there are rabbit holes and wild thorn bushes. Guests will be required to park their car on the farm behind a locked gate (which must remain locked at all times) and then walk 10-15min up a steep hill on uneven and slippery terrain to the actual campsite. (Moderate level of fitness required). You will be richly rewarded with 180 degree views from your campsite.
Please note Christmas, New Years & Easter Weekend there is a minimum 3-4 night stay.
