  • Accommodation


    Accommodation will be in a comfortable tent. Bedding will be provided, Food will be communal meaning that all can pitch in and help from time to time with cooking and cleaning up afterwards. The kitchen will be packed with mostly Healthy, organic and home grown ingredients. Town is 40 minutes away so if there is anything you cant live without i would suggest you bring it along. Its a good idea to bring along your own snacks to enjoy between meals.
