We have been thinking in great depth about how we can manage the ongoing coronavirus crisis for both guests and ourselves in order to mitigate the risk of virus transfer and to reassure you that your time out away from home is a safe one.
Please read our blog “Your Stay at Meadow Field Luxury Glamping” to learn more about our plans.
Frequently Asked Questions
What time can we check in?
We ask that you check in please between 4-6pm. If you think your arrival time will be later than 6pm, please let us know so that we can ensure someone is available to greet you.
Cars are not permitted within the glamping field, however the car parking area is close by and there will be access to a trolley or barrow to help transfer your belongings to the tent should you need it.

What is your environmental policy?
Where possible and without compromising on the luxury element of your stay here at Meadow Field, we have considered our environmental impact.
-Recycling bins are available which we encourage you to use during your stay with us.
-The farm has its own 50kw solar panel array which powers the tents during the day.
-Wood for the log burners is sourced responsibly, usually from a local supplier.
-The farm works closely with DEFRA and their environmental schemes to provide a beneficial farming landscape for wildlife. Some examples of which are the planting of nectar rich areas, not cultivating fields over winter and leaving hedgerows uncut.
Do you have any rules?
How Off-Grid are the two tents?
We would not class ourselves as “off grid”.
To make life a little easier, each tent has its own water supply – which serve the shower, two sinks & flushing toilet and are connected to mains electricity.
However, please feel free to make yourselves as “Off grid” as you so desire by disconnecting your gadgets and creating mood lighting with the LED candles and lanterns provided. The wood-burning stove provides heating and with the provision of 15 tog, all season duvets, hot water bottles and electric blankets you should remain toasty and cosy even on the chilliest of nights.
Can we bring our dog or pets?
Do you do single night stays?
We do not offer 1 night stays.
We do offer 3, 4 or 7 night stays checking in on Fridays for 3 and 7 night stays and Monday for 4 night stays. We may consider weekend escapes of 2 nights during the off peak season.
Do you supply bed linen and towels?
Do you charge extra for wood?
We will give you what we consider to be a “normal use” supply of kindling and firewood for the duration of your stay. Any additional seasoned wood for your stove can be purchased at £5 a trug full.

Can we bring our own disposable bbq, gas bbq, fireworks or candles?
No…in the interests of safety, the use of disposable or your own gas bbq’s, Chinese lanterns, fireworks, real candles or any other naked flame is prohibited. The tents are mostly constructed out of wood and canvas. We do supply LED candles, lanterns etc. Each tent has access to its own outdoor fire pit for those glorious star gazing nights.

Upon arrival we will request a £150 damage waiver. This will be taken as part of your booking payment and if there is no need to take payment to cover any damage during your stay, will be refunded 48hrs after your departure date. This may take vbetween 5 – 10 business days to show on your statement – depending on the bank you use. Please refer to our T’s and C’s for more information.
Can we have food deliveries to site?
During the current coronavirus crisis we feel it best to not offer to receive an initial supermarket food shop for you before your arrival in order to limit the spread of the virus.
Please can you bring all food you need for your stay with you when you arrive.
We do have a couple of wonderful farm shops not too far away that you can visit Malt Kiln Farm Shop or Manor Farm Shop to top up your supplies and have detailed a number of eatery options on our Explore the Area page including the location of our nearest supermarkets.
Due to the restricted access to the farm any take away food orders can not be delivered and therefore must be collected by yourselves.
