EXPERIENCE

 

Life at camp can be as flexible and as simple as you wish. Some guests like to do nothing in particular and see where the day takes them. Others like to explore and try new things. We find both are very easily satisfied. There is a camp handbook provided in the camp kitchen that explains all you should need to know to enjoy life at camp. For organised activities, we have a list of partners below

A hand-picked retreat for digital detoxers

 

Join us for an inspiring retreat in the woods with a small friendly group of creatives and entrepreneurs to switch off and reconnect, under the expert guidance of creativity teacher Laurence Shorter (author of The Lazy Guru’s Guide to Life).

 

 
 

Disconnect to Reconnect

 

Date: Weekend of Friday 13th October 2017

* Hosted by Tim at the The Farm Camp, near Bath. An off grid glamping site on his family farm

* Inspiring campfire chats led by author, coach and comedian 'The Lazy Guru', Laurence Shorter (see bios below)

* Morning woodland-walk, breathing and yoga session with Michael Townsend-Williams (Breathe Sync, StillWorks)

* Adventures into the valley - walks, wild swims, and various games (all optional)

 

What’s a digital detox?

We live in an increasingly hyper-connected, digital world and we need to learn how to control it, so it can’t control us. Campwell aims to help provide every guest with the tools and ideas to bring a more balanced lifestyle to their own world. So, we will ask our guests to leave behind any technology, timepieces and other distractions to allow us to connect with a simpler life over the weekend (emergency contact number available). Committed to flow, we will follow an unforced approach, with optional adventures, discussions and games, free-time, nap-times and plenty of campfire gatherings (with good food and drink).

If you would like to join us to reconnect with nature and find inspiration for your own life, join us for a weekend to remember.

 

Cost: £250pp (includes accommodation, facilitation and teaching from the Lazy Guru, 5 meals, mini adventures)

Book now: 16 places only, in 5 tents. Contacting us on stay@thefarmcamp.co.uk or call +44(0)1225 582246

TIM BOWLES

AszbivFOCgkx2oyPVFOmRczhJ1MQb3w8PUo1nRaCaS8Q.jpg

Tim is an creative entrepreneur, outdoor enthusiast and 5th generation on the family farm. After growing up in the West Country, Tim decided to follow the crowds and went to Uni, worked in London’s advertising scene and then in Hong Kong as a wine merchant. He eventually realised that an office-based city life was not for him, and moved home to set up a glamping business on the farm. He was inspired by the joy of the simple life at his camp and now encourages his guest’s to enjoy the same. Knowing the area well, he loves venturing out into the nearby valleys for adventures with friends, his wife Jojo and their dog, Waddy.
