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.
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.
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 loved it, it was a real hit with the children. The tent was fabulous with fun sleeping areas for the girls, electricity, warmish shower and lots of cooking areas. It was great fun making pizzas with the owners on the Saturday night.
Our Featherdown Glamping at Layer Marney Tower exceeded all expectations. Our hosts Nick and Sheila couldn’t have been more welcoming. Sitting in the hot tub and stargazing and looking after our personal chickens and eating the freshly laid eggs for breakfast were the highlights fo our kids. We all enjoyed cookng the ‘Cowboy Supper’ and wood-fired pizzas and thoroughly realaxed and enjoyed the comfort of the glamping experience in a stunning location. We felt like we’d had a week away after just two nights are are already planning another trip.
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!
Great fun, grandchildren loved everything about it.
