Practical Information / A stay at Elcombe Copse is an outdoor adventure where nature rules. In order to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, we have provided the basics.
WHAT TO BRING
We provide you with pretty much all you need so please take advantage of hassle free camping at Elcombe Copse and pack light. There is a short trundle down a hill from where you park your car, which is better enjoyed with fewer bags.
Although we have solar lighting in the important areas, it does get dark and cold at night. We recommend you bring along a head torch, extra matches or a lighter, warm layers, towels, sleeping bags for children to provide extra warmth on a cool evening and picnic rugs. Boots and waterproofs are always a good idea too!
LIGHTING & CONNECTIVITY
There is no electricity on site. This is part of the magic of staying at Elcombe Copse. The starlit skies are spectacular and, in order to preserve the dark skies, we provide gently twinkling fairy lights and candles to light the way. We recommend you come with fully charged phones or take a couple of days away from from your device altogether. A good 4G signal can be found in various spots around the camp.
Elcombe Copse has its own sustainable water supply which is fed by a bore hole on the farm. The water from the taps is fresh and delicious and, unless there is a serious drought, the supply is plentiful. If anyone has any concerns about drinking the tap water, we advise them to bring bottled water.
