As we emerge from a long winter and cold crisp days and storms alike, in to Spring, the season of excitement and anticipation… as we begin to put our heads above the parapets for the first time in a while, gazing to the distance to catch a glimpse of blue skies, a very natural question, a human question, arises – where am I going glamping this summer?
At Surrey Lakes Glamping, it’s part of our humble mission to help people come to peace with such existential questions. It’s in that vain that Val and I provide this brief note to share some of the developments we’ve been working here at Surrey Lakers in the hope that you may find resolution to this burning question.
Without giving too much a way, we can share that the communal spaces are getting an upgrade going in to this summer. There will be more shaded space over next to the Charred Burger (communal barn) thanks to an exciting new pergola.
This year is the first year of a multi year effort to turn the glamping site in to a wild flower meadow. Whilst we won’t see the benefits immediately, glampers may start to notice to first signs of yellow, pink and purple coming through the soils.
Trees and Wildlife corridors
Edward, the landlord and father of Frank & Val continues to take a 50-1000 year view with his oak tree planting scheme. This is ongoing and there are also numerous other hedge lines being put in order to connect the open spaces with the woods which serve as crucial wildlife corridors for the animals.
Part of what makes it fun running a glamping site is being able to see kids running wild and free and enjoying the chance to explore nature, especially if they come from towns and cities. We have thought hard about find a way for kids to learn more about nature whilst having fun. We have honed in on a series of books and games that provide super fun nature experiences for kids whilst on site.
This is just a sneak peak of some of the things happening at Surrey Lakes.
We hope to see you here in 2022!Back to News
