We’ve had a fantastic first full season of camping and glamping in our orchard. Thank you to everyone who has stayed and said how beautiful it is. We think so too!
We are getting ready to pack up the yurt, tipi and gypsy wagon for the winter, to keep them in tip-top condition. Our last date for glamping or camper vans is Sunday 4th October.
We will continue to take bookings for tent pitches from brave people throughout the winter, as long as the ground is dry enough.
We will be back open again for glamping at Easter 2016.
We’ve had a fantastic start to our first full season of camping in our orchard, and we are starting to get enquiries for dates that we are now full.
Please book early to avoid disappointment!
We think we offer something unique – an orchard created by our family in which we have celebrated birthdays, weddings and naming ceremonies and which we think is too special to keep to ourselves. To keep it special we only have five pitches in addition to our yurt and gypsy wagon, so it feels exclusive – but it does get booked up quickly for weekends.
If you want to see what others who have stayed here have to say about it, visit www.coolcamping.com and search for Fen End Farm.
Danny’s been busy installing this lovely wood-burning stove in the Apple Hut, which will keep visitors cosy in inclement weather. It may be small but it really pumps out the heat!
Our orchard is a hive of activity, and not just because the bees are busy making honey! We are getting ready to open up our yurt, tipi and gypsy wagon for our first holiday season.
Danny has been busy working on the interior of the gypsy wagon, making adjustments to the bed, adding new handles to all the drawers and making it a bit more user-friendly. It will also be getting a new, more practical woodburner to make it really cosy on chilly nights.
We’ll also be installing a woodburner in our Apple Hut – the hub of the campsite – so there is always somewhere to get warm and dry if the weather turns. Hard to imagine in this gorgeous weather we’ve been having!
We’ve got a shower going in to our bathroom shed, so there will be no need to ‘rough-it’, though we plan to set up an outdoor ‘jungle shower’ for the more adventurous at some point as well.
Well, with so much work to do I had better get off the computer!
