Greenhillock Glamping

On Site

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.

Facilities

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!

See FAQs for more details

As well as our Covid promise, we have made some other adaptions on-site to help everyone stay safe. An eco-bleach spray and blue roll will be provided in each of the Hutties (loos and showers) at the Field Kitchen and at a 'wheelbarrow station'. Please use these to wipe down surfaces before and after touching them. Sadly we have decided that the paper hand towels will have to stay for another year. Please dispose of these in the large dustbins not the sanitary bins inside the loos.

  • Hutties, loos and showers OPEN
  • Washing up area OPEN (one household at once please)

The Field Kitchen

The Field Kitchen, communal cooking and eating area, is housed in an ingeniously converted stable. Fridge/freezer facilites are provided alongside a gas stove for when the weather doesn't play ball.

Nature Trails

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.

Den Zone Remodel

Over winter, we needed to carry out extensive refurbishment of our drainage system. This is really positive as it means we now have a fully functioning soakaway to deal with grey water. The process produced a lot of soil and earth we needed to find a creative use for. We took the opportunity to do some landscaping in the Den Zone making this area more fun and exciting. The down-side is that the land needs time to recover from our activities and so the area is temporarily closed. We have set-up a new den building area in the adjoining North Paddock which we hope your little people will enjoy just as much. Normality will be restored as soon as possible!

Art Shack

Our charming arty space was constructed from 179 disused tyres, each packed with excess soil left over from our access track. A green roof and round tractor tyre windows complete the Hobbit look. In here little artists (and big ones too!) can while away happy hours drawing, collaging and creating, to the heart’s content.

Mud Kitchen

A firm favourite with young adventurers, the mud kitchen has all the pots, pans, ovens and of course mud necessary to cook up mud pies, mud pizzas and mud and chips. Tucked away in a corner of the North Paddock its fun to find and even more fun to play in. Disclaimer showers / washing down with hosepipes may be required!

Loved it, again! This is definitely my new happy place. Kids can't wait to come back

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

We stayed with two autistic children who are usually very technology-obsessed, but they barely came indoors all weekend
