We strive to balance the simplicity of camping in unspoilt countryside with just the right facilities close at hand. The sense of nature comes not from feeling isolated in the wilds, but rather from being a part of the natural surroundings.
At ‘The Hutties’ we have four composting loos and two solar powered showers plus there is a family shower room in the South Paddock for glampers.
As an eco-site we use composting loos to reduce our water consumption. They are very simple to use, not at all smelly and full instructions are provided.
Our innovative showers are solar powered. The system is incredibly efficient so hot showers are the norm. On cloudy days or at busy times the hot water can run out so be warned, cold showers are a possibility!

The Field Kitchen, communal cooking and eating area, is housed in an ingeniously converted stable. Fridge/freezer facilites are provided alongside a gas burner for when the weather doesn't play ball. Board games and reference materials are also provided to keep you entertained.
Informal trails are mown among the long wild grasses, meandering into the Wedding Wood and around the Wildlife pond. We encourage guests to pick up a wildflower chart and do some species identification.
The Bug Zone tent provides a base for kids to examine mini beasts and pond creatures and learn a bit about local species, habitats and conservation. We provide basic scientific equipment for mini beast hunting and pond dipping. Whenever we can we are on hand to help!
Our abundant hedgerows and mature trees provide enough fallen branches to set the scene for the next World Den Building Championships. Watch out kids, you may well experience the grown-ups taking over your den!
This child size tent (a much-loved family heirloom from the 1960s) is kept brim full of art and craft materials. Leaf rubbing, collage making and ‘draw what you saw’ are all fun ways of passing the time if the weather’s not playing ball.
One of the things I liked most was the things for the children to do. Not “organised fun” but a couple of carefully thought out activities that engage the children

One of the top ten coastal sites for families. Pond dipping, den building and butterfly hunting in the long grass, make Greenhillock a firm favourite with youngsters
There was plenty for the children to do den-building, bug hunting, and just being outdoors enjoying the amazing location - even the dog was in her element
Its such a lovely safe space for children with lots of really creative things to do in nature. My daughter really likes the art shack
