A WARM WELCOME
from annabel & simon
Gravel Pit Farm Glamping evolved from our many outdoor adventures. As our children were growing up on Gravel Pit Farm, we had almost daily campfires during the warmer months. Our favourite way to entertain is a BBQ and many camping adventures are in our 'diary of the happiest days'.
Here in ‘Darling Buds Of May’ country we appreciate the great outdoors; big, wide skies burning into spectacular sunsets that in turn bring some of the most spellbinding nights of dramatic skies full of stars. At Gravel Pit Farm Glamping we want you to be able to share this, you can opt to turn off all the lights and quietly enjoy the night darkness with just a crackling campfire… absolute bliss!
On those chillier evenings the odd light and a wood burning stove can make all the difference. Also... in this day and age a flushing loo and proper shower simply make the whole thing a bit more civilised.
Children will love collecting eggs from the chickens and adore the hidden cabin bed, housed in the wall of the safari tent and climbed into via a short ladder.
There's ample space in the paddock for rounders, football and cricket – though parents should be aware of some of the natural rough and tumble of the place (there are rabbit holes and, at one end of the paddock, an unfenced pond with ducks and moorhens) – and a good stash of board games inside the tent for evenings beside the wood burner.
We are lucky to offer the rare combination of being in a beautiful rural setting on a "Darling Buds of May" farm, but also being within easy reach of London, France and the Kent coast.
It is easy to get to us but once you are here you could be miles and miles from anywhere.
We look forward to your stay.
