A spacious 5 meter Bell Tent pitched on a 5 acre campsite with fab views and wood fired hot tub. Bed futons incl bedding & linen, lanterns, tea light chandelier, all cooking equipment & crockery, fire pit bbq & Dutch oven, picnic table & deck chairs.
Gooseberry Field is a 4,5 acre site which used to be an apple orchard based in Pluckley, Kent only a 20 minute drive from the Eurotunnel in Folkestone and one hour and a bit from London. We have replanted about 50 apple trees, several fruit bushes and have started a vegetable patch and herb garden. Amidst all of this we have 5 beautiful pre erected bell tents, as well as a Tipi and some space for people to pitch their own canvas tent (to keep it all glam). Our 5 meter luxury bell tents are beautifully decorated in different themes and include a double futon mattress (plus bedding & sheets) one or two single futon chairs, plenty of rugs cushions and lanterns, a couple of bedside tables and all supplies you need to cook, eat and wash up!
Use of the wood fired hot tub is included in your stay, as well as use of communal facilities such as the pizza brick oven, hot smoker and communal bbq. Please pick your own fresh herbs from the garden and check the chicken den on fresh eggs 🙂
We are there for you to to help with using the cooking facilities such as pizza brick oven or the hot smoker, or if you just need some tips about things to do in the surroundings. We might be outside and if not, just give a sturdy knock on our door :). Saturday evenings we tend to light a communal fire, which you can choose to join or not, we like to keep things relaxed and easy!
There are plenty of foot paths and walks that can be started from our doorstep, we have several pubs at walking distance as well as an amazing farmshop (5 minute walk) with delicious produce, included meat, bread, diary, vegetables. We can arrange bike hire for you, just ping us an email.
Pluckley Station is a 20 minute walk, Ashford International is a 15 minute drive.
