Book our whole site for your family get together, special birthday celebration, reunion, or any other event. Our individual tents sleep between 2 and 4, with varying layouts - see below. New for 2020 is our vintage caravan which can sleep up to 5 in one standard double and two sofa beds. The site can accommodate up to 20 people at a time and can be taken either individually (please see individual listings, refs listed below) or in a group. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions (including occupancy levels), or need help in organising your party.
Our bell tents are furnished with a mixture of modern and vintage French furniture, the caravan is a redesigned, vintage model from the early 1970's. All units are comprehensively stocked with everything you may need and are sited, well spaced, in a field of about 3 acres overlooking serene countryside. Kadai Fire Bowls are provided for cooking and campfires (plus a gas ring for convenience). Each unit has it's own complete wc/shower room for their exclusive use during their stay.
We have a beautiful swimming pool and also a barn and a marquee, both of which are set up for our guests' use enabling you all to eat and socialise together in a choice of locations. The barn also houses a large gas range cooker for an alternative cooking method and there are six fridges too. You will also find a very large Kadai Firebowl with benches all around for group barbeques and star gazing nights, with roasted marshmallows of course!
All bed linen and towels are provided. We have a centuries old bread oven in which we will cook pizzas, a large communal fire pit and fantastic star gazing opportunities. Our surrounding area is conducive to peace and relaxation with numerous outdoor activities to be enjoyed, stunning scenery and interesting places to visit.
Our bell tents come in three different layouts/sleeping arrangements. The tents are all named (linked to stars/constellations/astronomy)....
2 berth tent - Estelle - this is 5 metres in diameter with a double bed and additional seating (a French banquette can be equipped to sleep a small child) - best suited to a couple. (property ref 8529370 )
2 + 2 berth tents - Aurora and Lyra - these are 6 metres in diameter with a double bed and a day bed that can either be used as a single or can be converted to a king sized bed (with two single mattresses). We can also add another single bed if this is a preferred option. These might suit either a couple who would like the extra space, or a family, or perhaps two single people holidaying together. (Property Refs 8533147 & 8533135)
4 berth tents - Galileo and Cassini - these tents are 6 metres in diameter and are furnished with a double bed and two full sized single beds and, as such, are ideal for a family (Property Refs 8533102 & 8533115).
Each tent can accommodate a travel cot. We make no charge for infants under the age of two years. If you wish to hire a ‘baby care package’ which includes a full size cot (bedding included), high chair and baby bath at €6.50 per night, please get in touch.
We also have two 3m diameter 'Baby Bell' annexe tents. These can be added to any of our pitches to increase occupation, or to give more privacy (perhaps for older children/teenagers?).
Luna is new to our site for 2020 and is a refurbished and re-designed early 1970's vintage caravan. (Property Ref: 8533085). The interior is being re-designed to create quirky, stylish, fully equipped accommodation for upto 5 people in a fixed standard double bed, a slightly smaller double bed (130 x 220 cms) can be converted from the original dinette area. and a child's single bed created from the 'sofa' the interior gives living space for a couple in luxury or a family in comfort. Moving outside, a covered deck to the front will provide a comfortable dining area and an outdoor 'kitchen'. Luna will be positioned in a secluded corner of our site with a private garden area equipped with a Kadai Firebowl/Firepit, deckchairs, parasol etc. The caravan itself is totally 'off grid', but Eco friendly low energy LED lighting is powered by a solar panel for convenience and candlepower for ambience. (During cooler months, it will be possible to provide a mains-powered radiator). Our current images, artist drawings etc will be updated with photography as the transformation progresses!
