What time can we check in?

We ask that you to check in please between 4-6pm. The field and access fields are unlit and car free and therefore very dark at nightfall. Unloading, unpacking, lighting your wood burning stove and getting settled is much easier in the daylight. We understand that with work and existing commitments this may be tricky so if you can’t arrive until after dark we suggest you come early the next morning instead. Please get in touch with us to discuss and arrange any special requirements prior to arrival. 

What time do we need to check out?

10.30am please – We made this slightly later than the norm just to give you that extra bit of breathing space to pack up in the morning.

What do I need to bring?

We’d recommend bringing wellies and macs in case it rains & A good torch will be helpful also (we do also supply a wind up torch in the safari tent).  Slippers, warm clothes and layers are recommended and baby bedding if you’re hiring our travel cot.  If you’re using the hot tub you might want to bring a swimsuit and perhaps flip flops for when you get out. If you are bringing chilled items, please be mindful that the solar fridge at Re:treat is relatively small.

How do we get there?

We will send you a welcome email a few days before you arrive with directions and instructions where to park. Please make sure you’ve used a current email address and mobile number on the booking form so that this information reaches you. If you haven’t heard from us before you arrive please check your spam folder in case our email has gone there. Information can also be found in our Find section.

What is included?

Beds are made up on arrival and for chillier nights there are hot water bottles and a selection of snuggly blankets. The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, standard kitchen utensils and cooking pots and pans. In the kitchen you’ll also find a tea towel, washing up liquid, sponge and hand soap. There is also a supply of coffee, tea, sugar and basic condiments, kitchen roll, foil and cling film as well as a stove top coffee maker and a stovetop kettle. Re:treat also has a small solar powered fridge for storing chilled foods. As well as the wood fired stove and hob, there is also a small gas ring when you want a quick cuppa. A bath towel is provided for each person and the bathrooms have paraben free toiletries provided as well as toilet roll.

We’ll provide you with an initial supply of wood for the wood burning stove and wood-fired hot tub. Additional seasoned wood, as well as wood and charcoal for the firepit (available to hire), can be purchased from the honesty box adjacent to the safari lodge. Outside you will find a tripod BBQ and charcoal for this can also be purchased from the honesty box, but do feel free to bring your own. More information can be found in our Highlights section

Do you provide any meals?

You can pre book a variety of freshly prepared homemade meals ready to warm up which are served with a loaf of homemade bread. Please select from the extras list when booking. You can also pre order breakfast and BBQ packs for you to cook (meat sourced locally from Woburn country foods). Vegetarian options are available for both the homemade meals and food packs.

Can we bring our pets?

We’re afraid that at this time, we can’t allow pets at Re:treat due to the proximity of occasional grazing livestock on adjacent fields.

Is there electricity in the tents?

Re:treat is off grid, however it does have low level solar powered lighting. The solar powered lighting system also has a USB charger for topping up a phone/mobile device as does the wind up torch! There is also a wide selection of LED lanterns for you to use during your stay.

Do you have equipment for babies and toddlers?

Yes, you can hire a travel cot and high chair from us for £5, please select it as an extra when you make your booking.  We provide a cot sheet with the travel cot but please bring your own gro bag or top blankets. The kitchen has a selection of plastic plates, bowls and cutlery and the shower room also has a non-slip mat.

Do you have any rules?

We do indeed – Please review our Terms & Conditions for details

Can we get a supermarket delivery?

We’re afraid we can’t accommodate this due to the distance from the driveway to the safari lodge.

Do you require a damages deposit?

Yes, we require a £50 refundable damages deposit for each accommodation booked please.   We refund your deposit within 48 hours of your departure unless there is a problem.

Do you have special offers?
