Cheglinch Farm Glamping is run by Ella and Simon, with a little help from their 3 young children. The glamping site is situated in a picturesque, quiet field, which is a haven for wildlife, on the family dairy farm. With only 3 tents on site you can be sure of an exclusive feel to your holiday.
Each beautiful Lotus Belle tent is furnished with proper beds and mattresses, made up ready for your arrival, sleeping 4. There is room for a further small child in the travel cot provided or you can bring your own small blow up bed.
A private toilet can be found adjacent to each tent and a shower room for use exclusively by your family is situated on the other side of the field. A fully equipped outdoor kitchen is provided for each tent. Here you will find a deluxe gas barbecue, crockery, cutlery and utensils, with a picnic table close by. For those wishing to enjoy toasting marshmallows the fire pits will be a welcome treat.
Children will enjoy getting back to nature, exploring the large field, seeking out pheasants and other wildlife. The balance beams and mud kitchen add to the fun. Take a stroll around the hamlet and watch the cows grazing and the farm tractors working.
The tents are a WiFi and electric free zone but for those that can't survive without modern technology electric points can be found in the playbarn. You will also find a fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine, board games, sand pit, ball pool, small snooker table and dining chairs and tables in this homely area.
