Deepening the connection between Family, Nature & Self…

During the weekend you’ll have the chance to help site owner Beckie feed the alpacas and collect the eggs from the chickens that live on the site. There will be five guided sessions with Lucy, slotted into the rhythm of the days and incorporating:
family acro yoga
forest school taster
yoga pyjama party
and alpaca yoga where the alpacas will be joining us on the campsite
Plenty of free time will be available for cooking and eating (the retreat is self catering), relaxing, exploring and playing.
The cost of the weekend is £235 per tent, this includes all linen and towels and all activities for a family of up to 2 adults and 3 children. There are only four tents available for this special weekend, so please book swiftly to avoid disappointment. A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking.

An adults only weekend of crafting, friendship & wildness!
Join us at Bumblebarn and stay in one of our four, fully furnished bell tents (no need to share with strangers, have your own tent or bring your friends to share with you – max. 4 per tent). We have eco friendly facilities, hot showers and everything you’ll need is provided.
Over the course of the weekend you’ll get to take part in guided activities including making a macramé plant pot holder, needle felting an alpaca from the raw fleece of our very own alpacas, weaving and crochet. All crafts are suitable for complete beginners. You are also welcome to bring your own projects as we will be holding crafty circle time around the campfire every evening. There will be the option to join in with an Alpaca walk through local woodland and to spend time with these lovely animals which live right next to the Glamping field. The weekend is self catering, but collaboration with other guests is encouraged and you can be put in touch before the event to discuss plans. All cooking and eating equipment and facilities are provided.
The event official finishes on Sunday at noon, so if you need to leave then you will not miss out on any activities, however you are able to stay until Monday at 11am for no extra cost so we encourage you to relax and enjoy the site for as long as you can, if you are able to.
The total cost of the weekend is £260 per tent with one participating guest and £40 for each additional participating guest (max. 4 people per tent, participating guests only, adults only) which includes all activities and materials, linens etc. You are welcome to have the tent to yourself or to bring along other adults up to a maximum of four in the tent.
