GLAMPING - Definition = Glamour & camping combined. Also called posh camping or comfy camping. It allows you to escape the hassles of finding camp space, carrying tents, and erecting and taking down nylon tents.
WHITE CLIFFS GLAMPING
THE KENTISH STADDLE HUT
THE LEXINGTON TIPI
THE WOODCUTTER'S CABIN
Tipis are decpetively spacious (18 ft diameter) have Queen-sized beds with super-cosy (14 tog) Siberian Goose Down duvets some with thick denim covers, and some with genuine Lapland Reindeer Skins for extra warmth, extra blankets and goose down pillows. For the cooler months there's even an electric heated matress. As the night draws in there's even 'new-fangled' Electric lighting and an Outdoor Fire-pit.
We've also recently (September 2014) installed inner linings which really improve their ability to keep out rain.
Tipi interiors are designed and furnished by The White Cliffs Trading Co. Jack Wills University Outfitters & Lexington Concept Stores some with wooden floors made from reclaimed driftwood.
For your convenience there is indoor toilet and wash basin facilities in the main house 120 metres away available from 9pm until 6.30am and showers and toilets 30 metres away from available from 6.30am until 9pm.
(We supply torches, wellington boots, extra blankets, firewood, firelighters, matches, waterproof jackets and more camping gear on request from the main reception - Please just ask if you've arrived a little unprepared for staying in a tent.)
Staying in a Tipi - A word or two for the uninitiated... Staying in a Tipi you will experience a closeness with Mother Nature not experienced when staying in a hotel room. This will mean closer encounters with the weather and wildlife. You may be kept awake by the sound of the wind in the trees, rainfall or birdsong. You may be woken up early as the sun rises or by foxes calling at dawn. Don't forget you will be in a place that is attractive to 'little friends' seeking shelter such as the odd bug or friendly spider. Tipis are not 100% waterproof and in extremely rare weather events water may get in. We do our level best to avoid this and there are systems in place should this occur. We've recently installed inner linings which really improve their ability to keep out rain. If you're in doubt about staying in a tipi and don't want to risk being disturbed in the night by weather and wildlife we advise booking our Staddle Hut or a lovely warm, dry, quiet room in the hotel instead. Now, don't say we didn't warn you... ;-)
The Staddle Hut - AVAILABLE ALL YEAR AROUND!
Named after the Stone "Mushrooms" on which the hut sits the Staddle Hut is a converted timber-framed grain store which now accommodates a double bed room and ensuite shower room with a mezzanine bed platform with a single bed. The Staddle Hut sits close to the manor house in the centre of a large courtyard area surrounded by manicured lawns and our gravel driveway. Like the tipis the interior is designed and furnished by The White Cliffs Trading Co. Jack Wills University Outfitters & Lexington Concept Stores.
