All About Glamping Tipis

Tipis

We bought the tipis from a company in America renowned for tipi making. They are the biggest they do giving a floor area of 50m² (500 sq/ft) and over six metres high inside. With the poles they stand over eight metres tall. They all have traditional Indian designed artwork painted on them. 

Each tipi has a superking bed and three or four single beds. Quality wooden cots are also available for baby glampers. The mattresses are very comfortable and all the linen is good quality white cotton.  All duvets and pillows are hypoallergenic.

The floors have a specially made waterproof ground sheet with various animal skins scattered on them. There is also chest of drawers, chests and small tables. Each tipi has electric sockets, bedside lamps, fairy lights and good wifi signal.

The tipis are lined inside with canvas and together with the spacious volume, this all helps to keep the heat of the day out and an even temperature. All the entrances face east so in the morning the first thing you see is the rising sun. This is another Indian tradition.

La Mer

The Glamping Ground is vast and open with views across the Charente countryside and plenty of space for the little people to play in. It’s also designed so mum and dad can keep a close eye on things whilst relaxing themselves.

In 2015 we brought the sea to Glamping Tipis by creating our own lagoon and beach. We call it La Mer!

We excavated 500m2 of our field to create La Mer. The beach, made up of 100 tonnes of sand, surrounds the 250m2 of water. The salt water is kept clear using sand filters and electrolysis 24/7. The whole area and water is regulated by a government body with monthly inspections.

– 

The entire area has a 1.5 metre fence surrounding it with a self closing gate that young kids cannot open. You also get wifi here!

In addition to La Mer, the kids have plenty of space to play in along with the wooden Viking Ship, our new 100 metres Flying Fox (zip wire) with harness and other safety features. There are loads of toys and games, such as table tennis, badminton, volleyball, cricket, boules, bikes…etc.

Woody’s

Woody’s is the bar, kitchen and the hub of Glamping Tipis. Woody’s terrace is shaded by huge trees and is perfect to relax, eat lovely food and drink good wine.

– 

From the terrace you have far reaching views of countryside and you can also keep an eye on the kids playing on most things we have to offer.

– 

Woody’s kitchen is packed with all you need to prepare, cook, drink and serve. Each tipi has a fridge here and freezer space. There is a mini barista coffee machine, toaster, kettle, big oven, gas hob, sink, hot water, etc. 

We have loads of plates, bowls, mugs, cutlery, serving plates, glasses, saucepans, chopping boards, etc.

Woody’s bar is also the pass for the terrace and the sound system lives here so you can DJ your own sounds.

– 

Woody’s is designed to be different, fun and functional. 

Bathrooms

On our World tour we realised that having your own private bathroom is really important.

We designed separate bathrooms to be installed into a renovated pig shed. We have finished four completely (one for each tipi and one for the belle tent). There is also a laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and butler sink for you to use. 

– 

Each bathroom is very spacious with a large walk-in shower, loo, basin set on a Singer sewing machine base, vanity table and mirrors.

– 

We used colour impregnated plaster on the walls, walnut stained floorboards and modern white hardware.

– 

We supply all the white fluffy towels and loo rolls.

– 

All the lights are automatic and the doors are keyless entry. Each bathroom has it’s own hot water tank, electric sockets and a safe.
