Below are some of our most frequently asked questions. If there's anything we've missed, please feel free to get in touch with us.
What time is check-in and check-out?
Check-in is from 4pm - 8pm. If you would like to check-in after 8pm, a late check-in fee of £25 will apply. Check-out is by 11am.
If there is ever the option to check-in early, or check-out late, we will let you know.
What's the latest we can check-in?
Since we live on site, you can check-in as late as you like. We ask all guests to provide us with an ETA within a week of their arrival date and to call us when they are 30 minutes away from arriving. We recommend arriving in daylight, however this is not essential as parking is right behind the pods!
Do the pods have heating?
Yes, our pods have underfloor heating that you can control using a thermostat. They are also fully insulated, so there is no need to worry about being cold in the autumn/winter months.
Can we drink the water?
Yes, the water that comes out the taps in the pods is safe to drink.
Can we bring our dog(s)?
Yes, Honnington Farm is dog friendly. Dogs are charged at £20 per dog, per stay. We recommend no more than one large dog, or two small/medium dogs in a pod.
Dogs must never be left unattended in the pods.
Dogs must be kept on leads around the pods and farm-yard areas. It will be explained on arrival where you can let your dog(s) off the lead.
Do you accept large group bookings/hen/stag parties?
We do accept larger group bookings including hen and stag parties, providing you are looking for a peaceful getaway to the countryside. We are not suitable for loud/festival style parties and there are strict music and noise curfews on-site (see below). Larger groups must book two or four pods to reduce disturbance to other guests since our pods are located in pairs. There may be surcharges that apply to large group bookings - please enquire.
Can we play music?
You can play music, but through nothing larger than a hand-sized portable speaker. There is a strict noise curfew on site between 21:00 and 09:00 where no music at all can be played. Guests must always remain respectful of other glamping guests and farm residents, and if asked to turn music down, or off, at any time during their stay, must comply.
Is there a BBQ?
Each pod has its own Chiminea that can be used to BBQ on. We provide BBQ utensils, a cast iron skillet and a BBQ glove. We also provide one complimentary bucket of kindling, fire lighters and matches. Logs and instant-light charcoal are available on-site to purchase and cost £7 and £5 respectively. Of course, feel free to bring your own!
Is there a pub nearby?
There is a pub/restaurant at the top of Vauxhall Lane called the Hand and Sceptre. You can walk here and it will take approximately 15/20 minutes to do so. The walk is uphill on the way there and may therefore be unsuitable for pushchairs, young children or less-mobile people. They do have a free car-park.
There are lots of lovely and highly recommended country-style pubs within a short drive from us. We provide a list of recommended local places to eat within the Welcome Booklet in each pod. If you would like any recommendations on places to eat in advance of your arrival, please get in touch and we'd be happy to recommend our favourite spots!
Is there space for camping with tents?
Camping in tents is not something we ordinarily offer. However, if you book a minimum of two pods together, since our pods are situated in pairs, then there is space for a couple of small tents around the pods. Tents will be charged at £25 per tent, per night. Guests should remember that the only toilet/washing facilities on-site are in the glamping pods, so all group members must be happy to share the facilities in the pods that have been booked.
Do you offer one night stays?
We require a minimum stay of 2 nights (or 3 nights on Bank Holiday weekends). If we are ever left with a single night between other bookings, then we may allow a 1 night stay. Check out our Facebook page for any dates available for 1 night stays.
Do you have animals/can my children feed the animals?
We do not have farm animals on-site. There are a few horses and birds of prey that live here, but these are privately owned and therefore guests/children cannot feed them. There are lots of local farms that offer animal feeding and we are happy to let you know about these upon enquiry.
