We've tried to supply you with everything we think you'll need for a peaceful rural retreat. We have 2 vans to choose from 'Ransoms' or Bomford', each has all it's own facilities. Separate kitchens, shower facilities, barbeque area, etc. In each living van there is:
A full size
double bed with cosy feather duvet and pillows
A fold down table and chairs
Games, books and a pack of cards to keep you entertained in the evening
Ransoms has its own private wooden wood fired hot tub which can be yours for your stay - again, with as many logs as you need to keep it warm.
All you need to know...
We hope we've thought of
everything you'll need for a relaxing and refreshing short break and
have provided everything we think is an essential plus some luxuries
and also a range of extras that you might want.
Everything we do is designed to have as small an impact on the local environment as possible and we’ll try and encourage our visitors to share this ethos and leave only footprints and take only memories.
Outside you've all your own private 'glamping' facilities, from the compost loo and shower room to the safari kitchen as well as a barbeque and a firepit.
Just bring yourself as we're providing all your bedding and towels, plus all the necessities for your stay. This includes your crockery and cutlery, plenty of free firewood for the fire pit. The safari kitchen has a two ring gas hob, a cool box to keep your food in as well as essential salt, pepper and oil - and of course a bottle opener!
We've also put some games, books and a pack of cards in the Living Van in case you get bored of idling by the river.
Whilst this is camping - we want it to be the most relaxing camping you'll ever experience.
Optional extras - so you really don't have to lift a finger or do a thing you don't want to:

Prices for staying at the Nut Plat Retreat start from £85 per night.
A free breakfast basket to any guests arriving on foot or push
Extra night for free for any guests working in education during the school holidays.

Check-in 4-6pm, check out 11am.
Late arrival dinners are available on request.
Torches and wellies recommended.
Further guests may bring a tent (for an additional cost - please enquire).
You'll be 'off grid' so forget the 21st century, but we've spoilt you with lighting in the kitchen and living vans. There are no power sockets inside the vans, but you can charge in the main barn.
The private compost loos are a very short distance from the living vans. Being waterless, they're an environmentally sound alternative. We only use Eco cleaning and laundry products.
