Do the tents have air conditioning?
No. Our eco-friendly tents are powered by solar panels and a fan is provided year-round. Each tent has a mesh door at the front and back and windows that can be unzipped to allow the lakeside breezes to naturally cool the tents.
We encourage guests to get out and about in the heat of the day to experience our amazing region; cool down while boating, fishing or swimming at Somerset, Wivenhoe or Atkinson Lakes or grab an ice cream or cold drink from the Office!
Will I have access to the toilet and showers?
Yes. Our amenities block is a short 1-minute walk from the Pure Glamping site and has toilets, hot showers and a Disabled/Family toilet and shower in one.
Despite being communal, they are kept exceptionally clean and tended to.
Is there power in the tents?
Lighting inside the tents are powered by solar panels and rechargeable battery packs. These battery packs can be used for the provided fans and mobile phone charging through the USB ports. Please note that these are not suitable for CPAP sleeping machines, hair dryers or straightening irons or kettles. You are more than welcome to use the main outlets available in the amenities block or BBQ area to charge or use these devices.
