Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be rocked gently to sleep in the boughs of a tree? Well we can make that dream come true with the exciting arrival of two tree tents in the woods at Low Wray.

The tree tents are sphere-shaped canvas tents suspended in the trees. With side and roof windows, wood burning stove and LED lighting, you can get really cosy whilst enjoying living like a woodland creature cradled in the branches of the trees. Access is gained by a stepped ladder up to a platform where you can sit and enjoy the view. There is also a private rustic covered camp kitchen and seating area on the ground to cook and eat your food. The campsite shower and toilet block is approximately 150m away from the tents. All stays in the tree tents are subject to wind conditions.

How many people can sleep inside?

The tree tents are suitable for up to 3 adults (or 2 adults plus 1 child over 8 years old).

Inside the seating transforms into one double and one single bed.

What do I need to bring?

You just need to bring your sleeping bags, pillow and your food (see the inventory of what is provided below). A torch is also recommended.

Age restriction

Due to access and some of the unique features of our tree tents they are not suitable for children under the age of 8.

What happens if it’s too windy?

If the weather forecast for your stay is due to exceed gusts of 38mph (61.5 km) or Force 7 (moderate gale), we reserve the right to cancel any bookings at short notice. In this instance, we will offer a refund or a transfer your booking to another date.

How far are the tents from the car park area?

The distance from the car park to tree tents is 40-50m (one is 40m; the other is 50m). The path is gravelled or a combination of gravel and woodchip.

How high up are the tents and what is the ladder like?

The tree tent platform and floor level is approximately 3m from ground level. One of the tents is suspended close to a dip down to a marshy area so the impression of height seems greater than it is.

Access to the platform is gained by a sturdy steep ladder with solid wooden bannisters. As the whole structure is suspended, everything will wobble slightly as you go up. The steps are designed in such a way that it is possible to descend forwards or backwards.

Is fuel for the wood burner included?

We’ll supply eco-logs for the wood burner. Just pop along to Reception if you need more during your stay.

Arrival times

To allow more time for our enhanced cleaning process, arrival times for the tree tents are from 4pm.
