The communal areas
Our whole beautifully landscaped site is yours to enjoy exclusively for your weekend. Home yurt is the hub of Plush Tents with its sumptuous chesterfield sofas, cinema projector, sound system and roaring fire. It leads to a covered area outside so whatever the weather you can host your guests for hours of fun. . The z line of hammocks, wood fired hot tub and chill out teepee are a great place to unwind and catch up with friends. Let the kids run free around the site, which has been designed with them in mind, and explore our natural play area. Our new addition is the tree house mess tent which houses gas hobs, 2 ovens, a sink for washing up and an ice fuelled cool box for keeping drinks and food cool. We encourage you to congregate around the communal evening bonfire with a glass of wine and reminisce about old times.
Toilets and showers
Our heated, cosy shower and toilet block contains 4 reliably hot, gas-powered showers (2 for men and 2 for women). There are two types of toilets on the campsite: flushing toilets (3 Ladies, 2 mens & 2 urinals) and composting toilets (1 ladies, 1 mens) which are an experience which must be tried to feel truly at one with nature. Speak to our staff for instructions of how to use them. Additional toilets can be hired if you have a large number of guests attending your event.
We have a wide range of caterers that we can recommend to you from street food vans to hog roasts or fine dining. We have a bring your own policy with alcohol and can provide you with staff to serve your drinks for an extra cost. As we are predominantly powered by solar power and rechargeable batteries you may need to hire a generator to provide enough power for your suppliers.
We love music and there is nothing better than hearing a great band play on our bandstand. We are off grid and are focused towards a more chilled vibe than other places with respect for our neighbours both human and from the animal kingdom. Whilst we can’t have a disco going on until 2am we can recommend some amazing alternatives which are sure to get your guests in the mood for dancing.
There is plentiful parking on site. We close the gate at night and don’t accept cars after 11pm to keep the site quiet and safe. Parking is on grass so appropriate footwear is advisable. Chichester train station is 4 miles away and there are numerous taxi hires that can bring your guests to and from the site.
