Keeping it simple and Slow. Book a beautiful canvas bell tent with just enough bushcamp cooking kit for a Slow Camping adventure.
Slow Camping – giving ourselves time to connect with ourselves, our families, other people, our local community, our food, the things that we really enjoy, and most importantly our surrounding natural environment.
The Slow Movement can be traced back to 1986. Carl Honoré’s 2004 book, In Praise of Slow describes it thus:
The Slow philosophy is not about doing everything at a snail’s pace. It’s about seeking to do everything at the right speed. Savouring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Doing everything as well as possible, instead of as fast as possible. It’s about quality over quantity…
Which just about sums up what people enjoy about our site, so we have come up with a Slow Camping inspired accommodation option for your stay.

- Heavy duty bell tent, beautifully handmade to last a life time by Jennifer at Fait a Dessein.
