Half Term Availability

11th May 2022

Half term and the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations are fast approaching and we can still offer you a stay away. This year, so that you can make the most of the bank holiday, we are offering a Wednesday – Sunday booking. Included in the price are all our usual conveniences – wood, kindling, luxurious bedding, toiletries, kitchen basics and no check-out time on the Sunday. Yes – stay as long as you are able, to squeeze every last minute out of the weekend.

Heat Wave Relaxation

10th May 2022

Brunch on the decking

The next fortnight is forecast to be sunny and warm – and we have availability! Where better to relax in the open air? De-stress, chat, watch the hares and the kites, enjoy the view. Wander into the village for a meal at The Thomas Lord or a snack at the cafe. Buy prime BBQ meat from Buckinghams and cook it on our unique BBQs – all the while watching the sun set over the valley. I can’t emphasise enough how relaxing this place is. The tents truly are light and airy, and you can open them right up to get a breeze or enjoy the view right from the dining table or comfy sofa.
For the next fortnight we are offering a 15% discount. Book soon!

Opening soon

3rd March 2022

We have now begun setting up the tents ready for our first guests at the end of the month. It’s really exciting to see everything coming together and begin to sparkle. Spray painting of the stoves, cleaning the windows (so you can admire the lovely views), stocking up with wood, re-hanging the curtains – it’s all happening. In the meantime we enjoy watching the hares literally haring across the fields, the kites flying above us and the deer bobbing on their way.

When we have finished the interiors will be bright and sparkling again and we look forward to welcoming guests old and new for another season of glamping on the farm.

Autumn Breaks

19th July 2021

We are now fully booked for the rest of the summer. But it’s not too late to be dreaming about an autumn break. The days are still warm, the evenings full of golden sunshine and the hedgerows full of fruit. We will even give a couple with only one child staying midweek a £100 discount. It’s a great time to be trying out our new firepits, with their snazy Swiss-style swinging arm. (I call them that because we were inspired to create them by one we saw in Switzerland.) The base is made from an old plough disc, that in its first life would have been used to cultivate the ground here at Brocklands.

Summer Availability

23rd June 2021

We have some July availability. Sadly our foreign guests have had to cancel, and we now have some high-summer slots free. Chill on the deck, watch the sun set and the hares run. What could be more relaxing? Check out the availability tab and grab yourself a treat as well as some last-minute discounts.

Open Again!

16th July 2020

We’re so delighted to be welcoming guests again. Here’s a quick note from one of last week’s guests:
“We had a lovely stay, such a lovely tent and surrounds!”

September is a great time to visit us. The crops have been harvested and there’s lots of field work to watch as the fields are prepared for next year’s harvest. The weather is often glorious too, with warm sunny days. In the evenings it’s a pleasure to snuggle down next to the woodburner if the temperature drops a little.

Well away from everyone else, with plenty of fresh air and very careful cleaning, it’s the perfect place to refresh safely after our COVID shutdown. Choose your September dates now!

Thinking of Booking?

30th April 2020

We will REFUND IN FULL any booking made from now on for the rest of 2020 that is unable to be taken due to Government restrictions.

We understand that people are really keen to get away and enjoy a break. At the same time everything is so uncertain at the moment I’m sure you would be worried about making a financial commitment: I certainly would be. That’s why you can book with us for the rest of the year secure in the knowledge that if you can’t come because of Government restrictions we will refund all your money.

COVID-19

6th April 2020

Like other glamping accommodation we are currently closed. We have contacted all guests booked before the end of May with an invitation to move their bookings. We are currently hopeful that we will be able to reopen in June but would suggest that no-one pays the balance on their holiday until the situation is clear.

We are, of course, open for bookings later this year and next year and look forward to welcoming you when movement restrictions are lifted.

Summer is here and we have availability

27th June 2019

At last the sun is shining. It’s my favourite time of year on the glamping site. The grass is in seed and waving enticingly in the breeze. The flowers are blooming and the countryside is green and lush. Add that to the sheer relaxation of sitting on the deck or by the BBQ and drinking in the view and I never want to leave!

Here’s what one of our recent guests (who didn’t want to leave either) wrote in our visitors book:

We still have slots available over the summer holidays, so take a look on our availability tab and book yourself a treat. The great outdoors is there waiting for you to explore and enjoy.

Night in the tent

6th May 2019

Hugh and I spent last Saturday night in Yellowhammer. It was a real treat. A gaudy cock pheasant strutted past the window, we enjoyed the sunset from the decking and then after a cosy evening with friends there was a clear night and we could appreciate the stars. With no light pollution it was an impressive sight. We then went to sleep listening to owls hooting in the wood and woke up to a couple of hares beside the tent. Talk about getting away from it all!
