Copper Beech Glade – The whole site _old
Across the arched stone bridge and past the 18th century water mill you enter the Copper Beech Glade.
Against a backdrop of ancient birch, sycamore, oak and of course copper beech trees you will find our colourful trio of gypsy caravans circling the ample fire pit, plus a fully equipped colonial style log cabin.
Our gypsy caravans are named Bella, Carmen and Rosita.
Nestled under a canopy of mature trees the caravans look out across the glade to the River Robert (well it’s actually more like a stream and called the beck!! ) where you can try your hand at trout fishing.
To the right is a large lawned expanse where there is provision for various sports including football, croquet, badminton and boules. For the more adventurous following the beck up stream is a wild area where children are welcome to play, paddle and build dens.
The log cabin is to the left of the site and contains living space, cooking facilities and a shower is adjacent to the cabin.
On arrival guests will find a ‘hamper’ containing fresh bread, free range eggs, milk, tea and sugar, a bottle of wine and homemade shortbread.
The cabin also stocks a range of spices, ketchup, oil vinegar and condiments.
A breakfast hamper containing sausages, black pudding, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans ( or variations of the above )can be ordered and provided from locally sourced produce, for an additional price.
A composting toilet is located at the other end of the site approx. 50 yards from the living area.
See Essential Site Information for more details.
The Copper Beech Glade is part of a diversification programme to generate funds to continue the renovation works. Rather than do a run of the mill Band B we decided to do something that would appeal to the romantic and adventurous in us all.
