Incredible Moths

We were recently lucky enough to have a moth trap set up on site as part of a local survey.

The trap was installed in the evening with the light left on overnight. Now this isn’t a subject that we are even faintly familiar with and so were expecting to see maybe 10 – 12 […]

  • BEECH: Beech is the first pitch that we set up ahead of starting landscaping around site so is one of our favourites. Being in one corner of site Beech is bordered by the pond area on one side (fenced so no safety worries) and an empty pitch on the other. The willow planting in front of Beech has matured to such a degree that Poplar is now hidden from view so you get a great feeling of space. A view up to Hambledon Hill from the fire pit adds to the attraction of this great pitch. Gets shade in the afternoon and evenings thank to the mature trees in the pond area. WILLOW: Willow occupies a central position along the site boundary edge with great views up to Hambledon Hill. An empty pitch to one side and Oak to the other. Tall hedging shields the view along the sides and the grass bank and trees to the front give additional cover. Willow also has the benefit of being near to the compost toilet for evening visits. POPLAR: Poplar is the most open of our 4 pitches but as hedging and trees continue to mature becomes less so each season. Despite this Poplar is closest to the toilets and showers, has a lovely view of the pond from the kitchen and is also opposite the games area so the perfect position from which to watch the kids playing football and swing ball whilst you sit with a brew or a cheeky glass or something cold. OAK: Oak is tucked away in the far corner of site and is very secluded thanks to hedging on all 4 sides. Benefits from shade in the early morning and evenings and is closest to the compost toilet for evening visits. Has Willow next door so handy if 2 families coming together and has a background soundtrack of lambs for most of the year from the field next door.

Island Trimming

With work elsewhere around the site taking priority over the last year or so I had taken my eye off the ball when it came to keeping the willow on the island in check. A planned operation at the end of the 2015 season meant that the task of cutting back the willow has […]

Yurts and early weekend stays

It gives us great pleasure to announce that for 2016 season we will be introducing 2 YURTS onto site to replace the Bell Tents on 2 of our 4 pitches. Willow and Oak will be the lucky pitches as they suffered the most with the gales last season and so will get the benefit […]

Additional Batteries

Our off grid solar power setup of 12 panels and 8 batteries for storing energy worked amazingly well in 2014 and provided all the power that we needed. We could have left this system as is for 2015 but wanted to make certain that we had enough back-up power stored in the battery bank […]
