Tipis are designed to be lived in. Inside, they are amazingly spacious and bright – waterproof, lined and warm, with a central fireplace, lamps, beautiful Mexican rugs and sheepskins. Cooking utensils, mattresses (a double and 2 singles in each tipi), plates and cutlery are all provided, and you can even order breakfast and barbecue hampers of the best local produce in advance. Just bring a towel, toiletries and a sleeping bag, everything else is taken care of.
This year we have just one tipi on the hill as we´re hoping to build a cob roundhouse on one of the tipi sites. You can build a campfire inside or outside your tipi, and we will provide you with a starter pack of kindling and firewood;
Tucked under a crescent of 150 year old beech trees, Owl tipi sits above the ground on a pine deck and has its own internal raised fire pit-cum-grill. It also has a big outdoor fire pit with a trivet for all types of cooking; there is a tractor-seat swing hanging from a nearby beech bough suitable for all ages.
“We spent a wonderful weekend in our own tipi.
It was so cosy and peaceful, I’d prefer it to any hotel in the world.”
