Description of Glamping Units

The accommodation certainly feels spacious, and guests can bask in the luxury of two double beds fitted with comfortable mattresses. The host requests that glampers bring their own bedding. Cooking facilities are provided in the tipi, including a propane stove to make a delicious home-cooked meal.
Outside the tipi, there is an environmentally friendly composting toilet, and a fire pit to light a bonfire and roast some marshmallows.
