Accessibility Guide

ARRIVING

Part of the beauty of Nature’s Nest is that ‘its in the middle of nowhere’! But don’t worry the tents are easily accessible by car. There is around 4 miles of country lanes, then a 400m stoned track which is used/accessed by most vehicles.

Please drive slowly on the farm track (maximum speed 5mph) and be considerate of other guests on your arrival and departure from the site.

The car parking area is either stoned or has grass matting. In very wet conditions please keep cars to the stoned area. You will be informed if this is the case.

Please note there is no pathway lighting to the tents from the car parking area. We encourage guests to arrive before dark and I usually have the decking lighting on a timer so that you can find your way.

The tents are self-check-in.

ACCESS TO THE TENTS

All the paths on the site are mown grass therefore may be slippery when wet. The tents are all on one level however, there is a step onto the decking and a step into the tent.

The bottom tent (Hornbeam) is accessed by 4 steps so is not suitable for people in wheelchairs. The most suitable tent for guests in wheelchairs would be Spindle Berry or Wayfaring Tree as they have the smallest step up onto the decking.

Inside the tent is all on one level however the doors into the bathroom and bedroom are sliding with a maximum width of 1m.

You enter into an open plan living space with kitchenette and dining table for 6 people. The kitchen has a 4 ring induction hob, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, microwave oven. There is no main oven. There is an undercounter fridge with a small icebox in it. On the other side is either a corner sofa or 2 seater and 3 seater by a wood burning stove.

There are 3 bedrooms; 1 twin room with 2 standard size single beds, 1 double room with a standard size double bed and a king size cabin bed which is only accessed up 3 steps.

The shower room has a standard toilet, sink and walk in shower which you will have to step into, over a 10cm lip.

An electric boiler provides instant hot water and electricity is provided to various lights and sockets. Some sockets have USB chargers.

There is no TV but there is site wide Wi-Fi, signal varies tent to tent. Phone signal isn’t great but you can connect to the WiFi to WiFi calling.

ACCESS TO THE GROUP SPACE

There is a small step up into the group space.

Ramps can be provided, please let us know you require one at the time of booking.

THE GROUNDS

The site of Nature’s Nest is a private 1 acre farm field with access to the farms surrounding fields. Guest have exclusive access to the site but we strongly advise that you stick to the pathways provided and for your safety wear appropriate footwear suitable for grass and woodland tracks that can be wet and muddy at all times of the year.

The wild flower meadow is native grassland and contains many rare local flowers and grasses. It is also home to bees and butterflies. Grass tracks are mown in the meadow as natural walkways, please try to walk on these to conserve the wild flower meadow habitat. These grass pathways can be uneven and slippery, when it has rained or heavy dew has formed.
