Tips For Visiting White House Glamping
In this blog post we hope to outline a few important bits of information that you will need to know if you come to stay with us at White House Glamping.
We aim to offer you a peaceful and relaxing stay. We’ll email you the week before your arrival with the name of the tipi that you’re staying in and you won’t feel hassled by arriving ‘on time’. When you arrive you’ll need to bring along the name of your tipi with you so you can find where you’re staying. Simply, head into the orchard when you arrive and find your tipi. We’re always on-hand in case you do need anything. As a reminder, check-in is from 3 pm and check-out is 11 am.
Check-out is much the same. Just leave your tipi, make sure the door is closed and be on your way.
Let’s be honest, we’re not going to be able to beat Google Maps at directions. So here’s the postcode that you can plug in:
White House Farm
When you arrive, you’ll have a hill going down into a valley and you’ll see an entrance to a farm called ‘White House Farm’. That’s us! Turn into the drive and keep going for ~20 metres where you’ll see the entrance to an orchard and a sign for ‘Glamping‘. By now you’ll have spotted the tipis, so as per the check-in instructions please head in and go to the name of the tipi that you’ve booked. You can park next to your tipi.
Things You’ll Need To Bring
We’d recommend you bring:
– Wellies (we are in the UK after all & walks on the farm may encounter cow pats!)
– Cash: We have a trust shop where you can buy charcoal or wood if you’d like a BBQ or light the fire pit.
– Food and drink
– A USB or laptop with HDMI cable if you don’t want to watch our questionable choice of films
Here’s what we’ll provide:
– Camping stove
– Fire Pit & BBQ
– Pots n pans
– Cutlery, utensils, plates
– Communal fridge
– Bedding and blankets
– Projector & Movies
– A good time
Things To Do During Your Holiday
We have Ross-on-Wye, Hereford, Ledbury, The Forest Of Dean and Monmouth all a short drive from our site giving you plenty to explore.
Places To Eat:
- The Crown Inn.
- The Green Man.
- Lough Pool.
- Beefy Boys.
- The Bookshop.
Things To Do:
- Canoeing. Hiring a canoe for an afternoon or the day is one of my favourite ways to see the beautiful area. We recommend using Hereford Canoe Hire, who will not only rent the canoes but also take you back to the starting location so you can collect your car.
- Westons Cider Tour. Hereford is the largest producer of cider in the UK and you’ll be staying down the road from Westons Cider factory. We recommend all cider lovers taking their tour.
- Paint-Your-Own-Pottery Studio. Glazy Days in Ledbury is perfect for a rainy day or those with a creative flare. Paint your own mug or pottery.
- The Forest Of Dean. The Forest of Dean is a 30 minute drive and we love hiring bikes to ride around from Pedal Away or swinging from the trees at GoApe.
Things To Do Onsite:
- Fishing. There’s over a mile of river on the farm which gives plenty of spots for fishing. Our beat is managed by the Wye and Usk Foundation. You can find more information on our Glamping and Fishing page.
- Explore The River. If you’re not fishing, we recommend you take a walk down to the river to skim some stones or just take in the beauty.
- Local Walks. Take a look at our website here for 2 of our favourite local walks leaving from the glamping site.
- Watch A Movie. Each tipi will come with its own projector and USB with films. You can tuck up in the tipi our take it outside for the open-air experience.
We can’t wait to welcome you!
