CAMPING IN STYLE
Our 5 metre bell tents are up and ready to go. Some are furnished, some are not, but all will add a little touch of class to your escape at Big Sky.
There is no mains power to the bell tent but if you'd like to charge up your phone, laptop or extra lights just ask and we can charge them up for you in the barn.
Each bell tent comes with a private firebowl and we usually have spare picnic tables so if you'd like one, just ask :) The camping meadow is vehicle free so no worries about noise and safety.
Don't worry though, the car park is no more than 100 metres away and we supply big wheelbarrows so you can get your gear between car and camp.
If you like the idea of escaping to nature and getting away from it all without needing a whole lotta luxury, this is your place. (Although, our mattresses are pretty comfy!)
We can provide a grill or mini BBQ if you'd like to cook over the fire, and a 50l igloo coolbox and ice packs are included, to keep your food cool and fresh.
Note: We will accept often one night bookings for bell tent stays (over weekends one night bookings may have to be last minute as two night weekend stays are our main income), just shoot us an email. We're also flexible on dates if you're cycle touring, we know it doesn't always go to plan! Just get in touch to let us know what you need.
Bell tent facilities:
We've a block with eco loos in our camping field and a wash stand for dishes and hands. (We often fill a hot thermos to give you some warm water each evening and we're also working on a system to heat water using compost!
While we love animals we can't allow pets on site as they stress our alpacas out.
PS. If you're not a fan of bugs, flies, spiders, fresh air, the distant sound of tractors or cows or anything much to do with being outside in the countryside, our site may not be your ideal getaway!
We'll do everything we can to make your stay at Big Sky as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We love surprising our guests and making your stay unique so if you have any ideas we might be able to help with don't hesitate to ask :)
