Why Quex Livery Glamping?
We are unique in offering individual Kitchen AND Bathroom facilities to each Bell Tent.
Being kind to our beautiful environment is very important to us.
Our site runs on Solar energy. Wherever possible we have upcycled and recycled materials for our facilities. The Eco composting toilet discharges no waste and is emptied by us after each stay, and only ever has the fresh, lovely aroma of woodshavings!!
Compostable toilets are emptied each day.
The Bathrooms themselves are made of upcycled horse trailers. Recycled and waxed scaffold boards make the flooring warm underfoot. Copper pans are the attractive wash basins, and re-cyled tables are the washstands. Gas powered showers keep you fresh for your coming day.
The outdoor kitchen has everything you need to whip up a delicious meal. Pots, pans, plates and cups, and wine glasses compliment the tripod-style BBQ Grill, suspended over the firepit. Cook locally sourced meat from our on site farm shop, accompanied by delicious local deli-produce. Local craft beers or Kent Wines, chilled to perfection in your own fridge, round off your meal perfectly.
Sit back and relax on our sun loungers, or play games on your private 45m x 16m grass play area.
And Finally, the luxury Bell Tent provides the perfect place to relax and sleep. Sit on the big bean bags, and snuggle your feet in to the hairy Mongolian rugs before retiring to bed,whilst sipping the complimentary fizz. The kingsize bed has a sprung memory foam mattress and bedframe, adorned with egyptian cotton linen. Hotel quality quilts with hypo allergenic pillows ensure a good nights’ sleep. Bedside L.E.D Tilley lamps bring soft ambient light to the tent, while the solar powered electric allows you to run and charge your devices.

A luxuriously fitted out Bell Tent, with a king-size bed, cosy rugs and comfortable seating.
Your own Eco Shower Room and toilet, created in a beautifully repurposed horse trailer.
A pergola style outdoor Kitchen/food prep area
A firepit to keep you warm and for BBQ’ing when the sun sets on a balmy summer evening.
Views over the fields, with horses grazing in the sunshine.
