Reedcutters’ Village

Our Reedcutters’ Village fills the gap somewhere between staying in the house and camping. More comfortable than staying under canvas but a bit more adventurous than staying in the house!


Reedcutters’ cabins

  • The Reedcutters’ Village has six 8-bed cabins, one 6-bed cabin and one 4-bed cabin.
  • In six of the huts, there are four bunks (eight beds). Each cabin has space to stow your bags and to hang waterproofs.
  • Both the 6-bed and 4-bed cabins can be divided into two separate rooms, suitable for group leaders. These cabins are accessible at both ends.


A marquee provides a communal area for groups within the Reedcutters’ Village with tables and chairs. Additionally, a fully equipped dryshelter with running cold water, fridge/freezer, gas hobs and electricity provides the well needed comfort required when glamping! We offer both catered and self-catered packages with access to the equipped dry shelter for those choosing to cater for themselves.

Please note that groups need to bring sleeping bags and pillows in addition to the usual outdoors activity kit list.

Toilets and showers

There are toilets, showers and laundry facilities located close to the Reedcutters’ Village. Groups can also have access to a chemical toilet which can be pre-booked prior arrival, providing relief in an emergency. Please note that it is the responsibility of the group to empty and clean before departure.


The Reedcutters’ Village also has altar fires to use and access to a woodstore, we ask for a small charitable donation for all wood used.

Additionally, a limited supply Camping equipment is available to hire such as pots and pans, cooking utensils and washing up bowls.

For guests being catered for by Hautbois Activity Centre, meals will be served from the large dining marquee near the house, leaving your marquee free for participant use throughout the day.
