If COVID-10 restrictions impact my booking, can I change dates?
Yes. Bookings affected by official COVID-19 restrictions will be refunded or honoured on an alternative date. Any bookings can be cancelled up to 14 days prior to the stay, with a change of date or full refund minus credit card charges.
Are campervans/ touring caravans allowed on site?
The majority of our site will be vehicle free but we plan on having a five unpowered pitches for self sufficient vans and caravans in the meadow neighbouring our camping field. We won't have a waste disposal system (at least for the first year) but there will be toilets on site for all guests. You're welcome to email us with your dates if you're ready to book from May onwards.
Are dogs allowed?
Yes, we love dogs that enjoy a bit of camping. Please note that leads are compulsory, for the comfort of our alpacas and other campers. We have a number of relocatable poles which can be stuck in the ground so dogs can roam a little.
For a small extra fee to cover the extra cleaning dogs are welcome on the Schoolbus and in the Woodland Lodge Landpod. No dogs in the Cosy Cocoon or the YesBus.
I missed your crowdfunder, can I still book a stay or adopt an alpaca?
You sure can! The crowdfunder was just the beginning and we're very grateful to everyone who helped us reach our target. We're working to get our booking system up and running by the New Year (Jan 1st 2021) but in the meantime you can still book stays on our buses, sponsor trees in our new woodland or adopt an alpaca. Just get in touch and we'll give you the options.
Is there power?
All of our camping and van pitches are unpowered, but there's 12v power in our Landpods (arriving May 2021) and both of our buses are powered by solar. There will not be charging points or plugs in the bathroom either, so no hairdryers we're afraid (we think camping hair looks kinda cool, anyhow :)). If you're staying on a bus and have a high-draw item of electronics please check with us before using.
What different things do you have at Big Sky?
We're starting to create the site in December 2020 and January 2021. Once we open in 2021 (make sure you sign up to our newsletter for updates) we'll have two buses and a camping meadow. By Summer 2021 we'll also have five unpowered pitches for campervans and caravans. We may have additional glamping pods. Our 4 acre woodland will also have a parachute lounge and there will be options to spend a night in a pod, hammock or sky tent. Our site is also available to hire for weddings, retreats and workshops. We're also working on converting our barn into a welcoming events and chill out space. We won't have an official cafe or bar in 2021 but at some point we'll look to introduce these, too. Oh, and our alpacas will arrive on site by April 2021.
Are children allowed?
Yes! Although we're creating Big Sky as a peaceful place where adults can pause and process, we also love the idea of kids enjoying holidays with us year by year. We've plenty of space to allow playfulness and peace all at the same time :)
What facilities will there be on site?
Every aspect of Big Sky will be complimentary to nature but we will have clean, scentless compost loos and nice hot showers.
We want to be as accessible as possible and will do everything within our power to make everyone's visit enjoyable. By nature, parts of our site will not be wheelchair friendly by nature but we're all about finding solutions to everything, so if you have any queries please drop us a line so we can help :)
How close is the camping to alpacas?
The alpaca paddock will be fairly central on our site so at no point more than five minutes walk from glamping, camping or van pitches. Please note that our alpaca will not be arriving until April 2021.
Do you have fishing facilities?
We had been considering fishing, but sadly don't have any lakes or rivers on site.
