Site Information & FAQs

Over the years we’ve tried to provide guests with everything needed for a fabulous countryside break. If you have not visited Night Pastures before here’s answers to the questions we get asked most often. 

General Site Information

Here’s everything you need to know about the site, what’s provided for your stay.

Can I Check-In early?
Our check-in times are staggered to prevent a backlog in the drop-off zone but yes, sometimes early check-in is possible for our glamping guests who can check-in at 1.30pm for an additional £25. There is no early check-in available for campers.
What are the site rules?
1. No dogs
2. No Vehicles – including cars, caravans, campervans and trailer tents.
3. No noise after 10pm – Night Pastures is a quiet, peaceful site so we ask that all our guests be settled on site by 9pm and keep noise to a minimum after 10pm. Amplified music is strictly prohibited.
4. Fire Safety – If you have a fire, keep a full fire bucket to hand, especially in the dry summer months. No smoking or flames inside the dining tents, bathrooms or any of our glamping units.
5. Be Respectful of others and the land. – Don’t do anything to spoil anyone else’s enjoyment of nature – keep kids under control, keep the noise down and dispose of litter properly.

 

Can I extend my stay?
Yes! If we have availability! This can be done for you via email (campHQ@nightpastures.com) or by going into the shop.
How do I find you?

Clear directions (with photos) are given on our website. Our postcode is GU27 3NH. The nearest train stations are Liphook and Haslemere, both stations have taxi ranks. There are plenty of local cycle paths including a route from Liphook station.

Is the site accessible for disabled visitors?

Unfortunately, as we are located in a natural outdoor environment, we are not particularly well suited for wheelchair users. We have no disabled bathroom facilities and no level pathways suitable for wheelchairs. Those who are less mobile are welcome to park in the disabled parking bays at the entrance and if you let us know in advance, we can arrange to transfer you to your yurt by gator.

Do you have Baby equipment?

Yes! We have travel cots, a high chair, bumbo seat, baby bath and changing mat available for guests to use free of charge but supply is limited so please let us know when you book.

 

Can I bring my Dog?

Sadly, we are unable to welcome dogs at Night Pastures.

 

How do you cater for Cyclists?

We are a firm favourite with cyclists, bike-packers and backpackers hiking King Alfreds Way so we have set up facilities specifically to cater for them. We have secure bike storage for 8 bikes, a trail pump, a camp kitchen (so you don’t need to carry cooking equipment), hot showers and when restrictions allow, we will convert Redwood our BIG yurt into a bunkhouse for organised cycling groups with up to 8 comfy beds, fresh linens, dining table and woodburning stove.

 

Do you allow day visitors?
It is sometimes possible for day visitors to join you on site but this must be agreed in advance. Please email campHQ@nightpastures.com
Is there anything I should be particularly Aware of?
Yes!
Ticks – Ticks are present at Night Pastures throughout the year but are especially prevalent in the spring and summer when the grass is long. We do cut paths in the grass and mow sections for camping but there can be a lot of long grass in the meadow which is the perfect habitat for ticks. Please take all necessary precautions to protect yourselves against ticks. We recommend wellies or closed shoes for children wanting to explore the long grass. More information can be found on https://publichealthmatters.blog.gov.uk/2014/03/24/tips-and-tricks-to-stay-safe-from-ticks/.
Water  There is a pond and stream in the Bluebell wood that you would need to be aware of if travelling with small children. 
Provisions – We have a small shop on site selling the basics but after that, the next nearest shop is a 10 minutes drive so you may want to go shopping before you arrive.
Fire – When using a fire basket or BBQ in the summer, please douse the surrounding grass with water to prevent fires caused by blowing embers. We have a large supply of fire buckets and we ask all guests to keep a full one on hand when having a campfire or BBQ.
Is there anything special I should bring?

We recommend that all guests bring a torch and wellies or covered shoes to walk in long dew-y grass. Those wanting to paddle may like to bring some swimming shoes. Yurts are fully equipped with everything that you may need but guests staying in glamping units that share a bathroom will need to bring their own towels.

 

YURTS

How many yurts do you have?

We have just 5 yurts at Night Pastures. Beech & Oak sleep 4, Chestnut, Willow and Redwood sleep 6. The yurts are spaced some distance (50-100m) apart with Beech, Chestnut and Oak down one side, Willow on its own on the other and Redwood in the middle (between Beech and Willow).

What are the Bathroom facilities?
Beech, Oak, Chestnut and Willow all have their own private bathrooms a couple of meters outside the yurt. These are fitted out to hotel standards with a hot shower and flushing loo. We provide Faith in Nature toiletries and fluffy towels for every guest. Redwood shares its bathroom facilities with the Campers but still includes hot showers and a composting loo. Guests staying in Redwood need to bring their own towels.
What are the Kitchen facilities like?

Beech, Oak, Chestnut and Willow all have their own covered, outdoor field kitchen a couple of meters from the yurt with gas burners, grill, sink for washing up and work surface. A large ice-box keeps all refrigerated items cold and fresh ice bricks are available daily. The yurts are fully equipped with all the plates, cutlery, glasses, utensils, pots and pans you will need for your stay. Redwood has use of the communal camp kitchen but is provided with all the same equipment as the other yurts. There is a picnic table outside each yurt as well as an indoor dining table in case it’s raining. Each yurt also has its own BBQ and BBQ packs are available to buy from the local pub.

What about Campfires?

We think campfires are essential for any glamping holiday! There is a large communal stone fire pit between Beech and Chestnut Yurts and each yurt has its own fire bowl. You will be provided with logs for the internal wood burner and additional logs for campfires can be purchased on site at £10 per bag. Please be careful to keep the fire pit away from the Yurt and control the fire at all times. Please note that there is no smoking or naked flames inside the Yurt.

What about Electricity & WiFi?
As an off-grid site, all of our electricity is solar powered. There is internal lighting and a socket inside each yurt which can be used to charge a phone but please remember that if you charge 6 phones on cloudy days then you may not have lights in the evening! Sadly solar does not produce enough power to run a hairdryer. There is mains electricity in the shop and we will happily put your phone on charge for the day if necessary as well as provide power for essential medical equipment. A stay at Night Pastures is all about switching off so we have consciously decided not to offer WiFi to our guests however there are 3G and 4G signals in parts of the field so you won’t be completely cut off.
Is there Parking?

Parking is available in the field adjacent to Night Pastures and access to the yurts is via a short walk across the field. You can unload your car in the drop off zone by the gate where you will find wheelbarrows to help you move your luggage. Once unloaded, we ask that you move your car back to the main parking area to the right past the garages. We have a couple of disabled parking spaces available for the less mobile. Please note that in order to preserve Night Pastures unique environment and meadow habitat, parking next to your yurt is strictly prohibited.

Is Early Check-in & Late Check-out possible?
Our check-in times are staggered to reduce congestion in the drop off zone and you are welcome to check-into your yurt from 4pm. A 2pm early check-in can sometimes be arranged in advance but there is a £25 charge for this service. To ensure that other guests are not disturbed, we do not allow check-in after 9pm. We respectfully ask that you are punctual at check-out so that we can get the yurts ready for the next guests. 
Do you have a minimum stay?

All of our yurts have a 2 night minimum stay and 3 nights over a bank holiday weekend.

Will I be cold?

There is a handmade wood burning stove in each yurt which will be prepared ready for your arrival. Within the cost of your booking, we provide a bag of logs, kindling, firelighters and a lighter. Additional bags of logs can be purchased for £10 per bag.

Are Linen and towels included?

The beds will be freshly made for your arrival with sheets, duvets and pillows.  Towels and a bath mat are also provided for guests staying in Beech, Oak, Chestnut and Willow. All bedding is changed at the end of your stay but if you need it changed before then, please contact the site manager who will arrange it for you. Additional charges apply for extra linen

BELL TENTS

How many bell tents do you have?

We have just 2 beautiful Bell tents named after some of the birds you will hear in the field – Skylark and Nightingale. They are situated on the far side of the meadow, adjacent to each other and far from the yurt and camping areas. The Bell tents are clearly named and sit on their own in a very large area so there is plenty of space for everyone to feel secluded.

Where are the bell tents located?
The bell tents sit in their own area on the left hand side of the field about half way up. They are next door to each other. Willow yurt is to the left and far away on the right is Badger Camp
How many can each bell tent sleep?

Both of our bell tents are 5m in diameter so they are spacious inside. Skylark has been fitted with a wood burning stove this year so to be safe, we have restricted her to just 2 guests… but it does make an extremely romantic space, perfect for 2! Nightingale is perfect for families with 4 single beds.

What's Inside the Bell tents?

Each Bell tent comes furnished with 4 single beds (made up for the number of guests you have booked for), a table, fairy lights, rug, kitchen pack , icebox, outdoor chairs and its own fire basket which you can cook on. Skylark now has a wood burning stove and therefore we have restricted guests numbers in Skylark to just 2.

Do you allow Campfires?
Yes! Both of our bell tents come with their own fire bowl and grate for cooking so you can relax and enjoy an evening around your fire watching the stars. We also have several large communal fire pits which are available for everyone to use and we sell logs at £10 per bag. 

 

Do you have Cooking Facilities?

Each bell tent comes with its own ice box to keep food cold (fresh ice bricks are available daily) and a fire bowl which you can cook or BBQ on but we also have 2 camp kitchens with double gas burner if you just want to make a quick cuppa. Each bell tent has its own basic kitchen pack (crockery, cutlery & a pan) and there is a sink with a view near the bell tents for washing up. General waste and recycling bins are provided for all guests. There are covered dining areas in the camping Camps with picnic tables to give protection against the weather.

What are the Bathroom facilities?

We have a lovely, clean bathroom trailer with a hot solar shower and compost loo’s for our bell tent guests to share. There is solar lighting in the bathroom trailer but please note that if you leave the lights on then there won’t be any solar power to heat the water! Please also remember that we do not provide towels for bell tent guests so you will need to bring your own.

What about Electricity & WiFi?

Our bell tents do not have electricity but if you need to charge your mobile phone then you can do so in the shop. A stay at Night Pastures is all about switching off so we have consciously decided not to offer WiFi to our guests however there are 3G and 4G signals in parts of the field so you won’t be completely cut off.

 

Is there Parking?

Parking is available in the field adjacent to Night Pastures and access to the Bells is via a short walk through the woods. Bell tent guests should go straight to the main parking area to the right past the garages, follow signs for Badger camp, pick up a wheelbarrow and take the short path through the woods to the Bell tent area which will be found on your Right.

Is Early Check-in & Late Check-out possible?
Our check-in times are staggered to reduce congestion in the drop off zone. Night Pastures is a quiet, peaceful site so we ask that all our guests are settled on site by 9pm and keep noise to a minimum after 10pm. We respectfully ask that all Bell tent guests check-out promptly to allow time for us to get the area ready for the next guests. Early check-in and late check-out is not possible in our bell tents.
Do you have a minimum stay?

Our bell tents have a 2 night minimum stay 

CAMPING

How many pitches do you have?

We have just a few grass camping pitches at Night Pastures, divided into a family camping area and an adult camping area at the entrance to the site and Badger camp in the far left hand corner. Badger Camp is available for groups to book for exclusive use.

Do you allow Campfires?
Yes! We are passionate about the ecology of our environment at Night Pastures and it can be irreversibly damaged by fire so we do not allow campfires directly on the grass. We have several large communal fire pits which are available for everyone to use and we sell logs at £10 per bag. If you would like your own raised fire-bowl with a cooking grate, we charge £20 for you to borrow one for your stay and this comes complete with a wood pack, kindling, fire lighter & matches.
Do you have BBQ and Cooking Facilities?
We have 2 camp kitchens with double gas burner, communal ice box and sink for washing up. A small donation towards the gas is much appreciated. There is a large gas BBQ (with utensils) available to rent at the shop. General waste and recycling bins are provided for all guests. Campers are allowed to bring and use their own BBQs provided they do not sit on the ground
What are the Bathroom facilities?

We have lovely, new handbuilt shower blocks with hot showers and composting loo’s for all campers to share. 

What about Electricity & WiFi?

None of our pitches or kitchens have electricity but if you need to charge your mobile phone then you can do so in the shop. A stay at Night Pastures is all about switching off so we have consciously decided not to offer WiFi to our guests however there are 3G and 4G signals in parts of the field so you won’t be completely cut off.

 

Is there Parking?
Parking is available in the field adjacent to Night Pastures and access to the pitches is via a short walk across the field. You can unload your car from the drop off zone by the gate where you will find wheelbarrows to help you move your luggage. Once unloaded, we ask that you move your car back to the main parking area to the right past the garages. Badger guests should go straight to the main car park and follow signs for Badger camp. Please note that in order to preserve Night Pastures unique environment and meadow habitat, parking on your pitch is strictly prohibited.
Is Early Check-in & Late Check-out possible?

Our check-in times are staggered to reduce congestion in the drop off zone and we do not allow any check-ins after 9pm. Early check-in and late check-out is not possible for camping. We respectfully ask that all camping guests check-out promptly to allow time for us to get the area ready for the next guests.

Adult camping has no minimum stay but Family Camping and Badger Camp have a 2 night minimum
