We just want to bring you up to date on some of the developments at South Meadows.
Shower and toilet facilities
Earlier this year we told you about the complete refurbishment of the shower / toilet block next to the reception area.
Now, we’re pleased to inform you that the brand new toilet / shower block near to the Willows is fully open.
This new facility has a waste heat extraction system to help towards improving our green credentials as well as underfloor heating for real comfort.
On the more practical side there are 3 showers and toilets each for men and women. There is also a disabled toilet and wet room with toilet.
We’ve also included 2 family showers and a baby shower area.
We know that many of our guests have asked about additional shower and toilet facilities in the past and we hope that they’ll be pleased with the result.
In terms of the all-important ratio of shower and toilet facilities to the total number of pitches, this development places South Meadows well up the list compared to many other sites.
A new type of camping …
We have mentioned before that we plan to install a few pods … sometimes known as glamping pods.
We’re pleased to say that they’ve arrived and we’re busy getting them set up.
So just what is ‘glamping’?
One dictionary definition says that it is … A form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.
It also offered some further information:
- glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries
- it’s the activity of camping with some of the comforts and luxuries of home; imagine glamping in a carpeted tent with a comfy queen-size bed!
We can’t necessarily promise a queen-sized bed but, very soon, our new pods will be ready for our visitors.
They’re just being sited and connected. Here are a few more pictures of what you can expect …
Look out for more announcements about the pod experience, availability and pricing.
