Accommodation at IpSwing

We are providing accommodation in 55 spacious bell tents, 5m diameter and 3m high. You have the option to book an entire tent for your exclusive use, this can be configured to accommodate up to five people. Alternatively, you can book a single space in a shared tent of up to four people. The shared tents will either be solely male or female, or some will be mixed. The choice is yours! Each tent is equipped with electrical power, suitable for charging phones, but not for heating devices, including hair dryers, straighteners, kettles, etc. We will provide camp beds for the number of people in your tent, but you will need to bring your own bedding, such as a pillow and sleeping bag. Fold up chairs could be useful.
