The exclusive use site which is home to your Bell Tents, is situated discretely within newly planted woodland which blends in to the beautiful gardens of The Grange. A lovingly converted Country Barn House in idyllic Lower Loxley near Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. The Grange is the perfect location for friends and family to visit for a more relaxed and creative hen party weekend.
Within your camp of Bell Tents is a Eco Toilet, an extra option should you find yourself needing to make a trip in the night if you get caught short! Of course in the main building you still get access to the plumbed in toilets and shower during the day!
Although the main camp of Bell Tents has No Electricity , you do have the luxury of mains electric situated within the Mess area. Here you can use your hair dryers and hair straighteners, as well as a chance to charge your mobile phone.
Linking your Bell Tents, as well as the Wood Fired Hot Tub, the Den and the BBQ/Firepit area are the meandering pathways which bring to the edge of the gardens to the main building and the Mess area.
Remember in the dark of those summer night the site is only lit by the festoon lights and the solar lights….oh and of course the beautiful starry Staffordshire night sky!
The Hen Camp includes 3 x 5m Bell Tents,accommodating up to 15 people. Each tent is pitched on it’s own decked platform in the centre of the newly planted woodland at The Grange.
Inside a Bell Tent are up to 5 camp beds, with bedding, lighting, coir matt flooring, a mirror, a wooden trunk, bunting plus some welcome treats! While inside each trunk you’ll find extra blankets should the night time become a little chilly – you are in a tent after all!
A short walk from your Bell Tents is the convenient car parking area, so if your unsure whether to pack those bulky wellies or you just HAVE to pack a few extra bottles of prosecco it’s always better to be safe than sorry…you may as well bring supplies and leave them in the car…just in case!
On arrival to camp you’ll not only find goodies for your guests and a helpful guide of useful local information inside the tents. But you’ll also be greeted by a member of our helpful team who will give you a brief guided tour of camp and then introduce you to hosts Mick & Mary who will be onsite at the main house should you need any help? – whether it’s simply lighting the firepit or recommending local takeaways and put you in touch with a local taxi company, they’ll be able to help.
Over at the Mess area you’ll find our hot water bottle wall – you can’t beat popping a bottle in your bed before you get in the hot tub. Along with a well stocked Honesty Shop with emergency treats etc, we’ll also be on hand to fill the fridges with your Online Shopping Delivery which you’ve hopefully had sent before you arrive!?
Do you have a member of your group wanting to be part of your hen party weekend, but aren’t too sure about a night under canvas? Maybe Mum, Auntie or even Gran would prefer a private space to relax in during the day? Or is your group number a little higher than the maximum 15 people who can stop in our 3 Bell Tents? If so then the rooms situated within The Grange B&B are a great option for you. The ‘Room Only’ accommodation option within the farm house are just a short stroll into camp. Each room is a perfect sanctuary from the fun and frolics of your Hen Camp.
For more information about the rooms or to book a room, contact Mary directly at The Grange.
Every Camp needs a real fire! Our fire pit is sure to keep you all toasty late into the night. And our handmade seating lets you all sit back, star gaze and toast those marshmallows. Of course with maybe a glass of prosecco – or two! The Fire pit is conveniently located near to the BBQ, so you can cook your own tasty treats, but why not take the opportunity of booking a cooked bbq provided by host Mick instead! Food options even include delicious BBQ’d puddings… just have a look at Mary’s menu to see what’s on offer.
You can even add in a camp fire activity, like learning the ukulele or a willow weaving workshop. Take a look at our activities page to find out more. If the weather is less friendly we also have gazebos on hand to let the party continue, and then there is of course the den!
Hen Camp has the fun and the luxury of having both flushing toilets in the mess area a short walk from your Bell Tents, as well as the Eco Toilet conveniently situated in camp near to your accommodation.
So any late night emergency trips to the Loo in camp means a tale or two to laugh about in the morning after a trip to the Eco Loo. All part of the fun of stopping in the great outdoors!
The Den is located close to the hot tub within the wood, it’s a covered and sheltered communal space for you to enjoy. Whether its playing those all important hen party games, or holding a cheeky life drawing session! In the evening fairy lights add to the magic of the camp as the sun goes down. And as an extra Chill Out area you can sit in the Den whilst the more daring members of your group hop in and out of the hot tub, guided by the solar lights and the festoon lights around camp.
Stunning setting, fabulous camping, scrumptious afternoon tea, lovely hosts... We couldn't have asked for more!
