We’re now in our fourth year of hosting a Pop Up Glamping Site at Hemscott Hill and as usual we will be open only for a few short weeks over the summer (Selected dates in the Summer Holidays) and we thought it was time that our tents had a makeover.
We’ve also been on a trip to Ikea…
So all of our tents will be furnished with a double futon topped with a super comfy topper to keep you toasty that will be ready made with lovely fresh bedding and a warm duvet so you just need to turn up and move in.
In addition to the futon there will be a double and single chairbeds so that the tents also sleep up to 3 kids although you will need to bring bedding for them.
We have also found a fab solution to the ‘where do you hang your wet coat’ problem and found some clothes rails (yep, in Ikea) that are perfect for the job.
The tents will be furnished with blankets, cushions and floor rugs, and have crate tables with lanterns. There will be string lights and bunting to finish the look off, well it is glamping after all.
As usual there will be a kitchen box of crockery, cutlery, mugs, glasses etc and this year we will have a new kitchen shed that will be shared by the 6 tents where you can cook a meal on gas, make a quick cuppa, or store food in the cool boxes which will be topped up with ice packs daily.
Of course, each tent will still have a fire pit outside and a barbeque, and there will be hot water to do the washing up.
We’ve also replaced the shower huts in the field this year and we are building a purpose made shower and loo block at the farm for glampers and campers to use (our compost loos will still be on site but there will be flushing loos in the new block too).
We recently held an open day for our new wedding venue, Barn On The Bay, and we put up some tents for display so you can have a peek inside (they didn’t have the chairbeds for the open day, but you’ll get the picture!).
