Oaksbrook GLAMPING

Oaksbrook GLAMPING

Our Exciting new project! We are creating a secluded, private Glamping Retreat nestled among mature pines and a young native wood with clearings of tall grasses and wild flowers. The accommodation will be beautifully hand crafted, home built Shepherd Huts. Our flagship hut the Ryeland will be the first of three and will be available for relaxing breaks from April 2021 plus a Lotusbelle Stargazer tent called the Shepherds Belle along with its very own 10’ x 6’ Shepherd hut shower and WC washroom the Croft Hut.

A Little Piece of the Wild

The Glamping area is a versatile space. At times the outdoor space will be available for small group use. Perhaps a meditation group or for an out door yoga practice, outdoor learning facility or a day retreat setting combined with use of the hut, a fire pit or out door kitchen or as part of a workshop based in our Walnut Barn.
