F.A.Q.s

 

What are the check in and check out times?

We ask if you can arrive after 4pm and depart by 10am on your departure to allow our team to changeover the camp. If departing on Sunday, you can leave whenever you wish (no early check outs :)

Is there power available at the camp?

The camp is off-grid and we love it that way! If you are really need it, there are a few power sockets in the laundry room near the pool area down at the farm (half mile).

How can we keep our food cool during our stay?

We supply cool boxes if you would like them and have ice blocks in the freezer in the farm laundry room which you can use.

What travel options are there to get to the farm?

We are easily accessed by car, bus and train. Or bike and plane for that matter. Buses stop in the village every 30 minutes and train stations locally are Bradford on Avon (3 miles) and Bath (5 miles) with Bristol Airport around 45 minutes drive away. Given the camp is quite remote, coming on foot means more walking! Cars may be useful.

Maximum/ minimum guests?

Fry’s Wood will occupy groups of up to 20 and 4 tents can be booked out individually in the midweeks. Cotton Breeches takes up to 15.

Whats included?

Ready-made beds, towels, a woodburning stove, hot showers, compost loos, camp kitchen and an indoor heated pool and games room down at the farm

How many can you sleep in each tent?

Each tent occupies up to 4 guests. In Fry’s Wood, there is a double bed in the middle of each tent with space for 2 single beds each side of it. In Cotton Breeches there are 4 single beds in each tent.

What is the location of tents and facilities at the site?

We can provide a camp map for Fry’s Wood and Cotton Breeches is new for 2017 so will be available soon also.

Are dogs allowed?

Currently we are unable to take dogs, due to sheep surrounding the camps. Even if your little friend is an angel, we would not like to risk anything.

Where can we buy groceries and general shopping?

Hartley Farm Shop & Kitchen stock some delicious local produce and the village shop has various other items and is open until around 10pm.

Where can we eat out locally?

The village pub do brilliant food for lunch and dinners. And Hartley Farm Kitchen have some stunning breakfasts and lunches available too. Both within half a mile of camp! Of course, Bradford on Avon and Bath have many many more options.

Is there Wifi at camp?

There is not, but we guarantee a better connection ;) You may be able to get 4G here though if you are desperate and Hartley Farm and the pub have it too.

Activities nearby?

There is lots to do locally with something for everyone. You can see an activity page on our website or see the visitBath or visitWiltshire websites too.

Can we bring our own tents/ campervan?

We only take stays in our own tents here. There are a few campsites that do BYO nearby, such as Merkins Farm and Blackberries.

Is there somewhere we can all sit, eat and relax together as a group?

Yes. There is a large shelter in both sites where you can dine and enjoy a dry space, whatever the weather.

How warm are the tents at night?

We provide winter duvets and blankets, but if you feel the cold easily, you may wish to bring extra layers (thick PJs, blankets, sleeping bags etc). You do also have a woodburner in your tent which works well but can go out in the night. Most guests sleep very well!
