There are six tented encampments in the grounds of Layer Marney Tower each named after one of the wives of Henry VIII.
Each encampment has a main tent sleeping up to 6 people in comfortable beds, there is a plumbed in loo, cold running water to the kitchen sink, and battery operated lights. A comfortable sofa and large table and a wooden floor running throughout and onto a large veranda, that adds 1/3 to the living space. There is an indoor and outdoor cooking stove fuelled by logs that are provided. There is a private shower. Three of the encampments have hot tubs (book them through Featherdown)
There is a small shop that will supply items you might have forgotten and we can order food in for you.
A relaxing break from the fast pace of every day life. TIme spent making fires, food and drinks as a family away from screens was priceless!
Our favourite Featherdown so far.
We had a lovely realxing time, despite some rain. Our 2 year old loved being in the open air and heling to get logs for the stove. Christine made us feel very welcome.
What can I say, what an experience. We had a great time at Layer Marney Tower. Lord Nick (as we called him) was an absoulte super star nothing was too much for him. Our party had organised a murder mystery dinner party and due to the cold weather he even heated the Long Gallery (which was a great setting for the event) i the Tower for us to use. We will definitely be going back better prepared. Would be great for children in the safe environment.
We enjoyed a truly unique and serene experience our weekend, Layer Marney Tower and its hosts were fabulous. The tents and location was very tranquil, hot tub was amazing and we especially enjoyed bottle feeding the lambs and walking round the Tower and grounds
We had a lovely time! The heat generated by that stove was fantastic! Cooking was really quick too. Beds were really warm. The boys loved their ‘cupboard’ bed. We will definitely be back! Layer Marney Tower is a wonderful building.
