Booked Gemini Camp for a short break with son & daughter. Chose this as I wanted somewhere to go back to nature and chill for a few days, reminisce of when they were younger.
The accommodation was extremely comfortable, my son had his own space in the room next to the kitchen, whilst the girls had the glamping space. Everything and more was provided, including games, books & eggs for breakfast.
We loved watching the deer come out as we were settling down for dinner, and hearing the animals on the other side of the tent overnight.
We stayed 3 nights and only really heard the planes on the last night, for some reason they seemed to be more?
There are walks and helpful leaflets provided about the local area but we stayed close to the camp, enjoying its location.
I wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend to all.
Thanks Dee and Olly!
Stayed at Gemini Camp with sister & brother-in-law. We choose this site as we wanted somewhere to just chill for a few days , the accommodation was clean & comfortable everything we needed was provided & the horse box reading room was a good idea, it was great to have a whole field to ourselves , you can hear the buzz of planes drifting across from the airport nearby but we expected that before we went & it wouldn’t discourage us from returning in the future. It was still very peaceful & relaxing. We sat outside in the evening watching the deer as they wandered into the field. There are shops in the village which is within walking distance if needed, there are leaflets in the camp advertising places to visit in the local area we however choose to just enjoy the location. Olly & Dee were both charming , explaining the basics & they obviously care about what they are doing, we throughly enjoyed our stay

We booked this site for our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was the perfect break. The site is peaceful and totally private. The tipi is very cosy and comfortable and the kitchen and living hut it great for cooking and watching the world go by.

I booked this visit as a surprise for my husband for a long weekend there. We only live 20minutes from the site but we needed a relaxing weekend away and this seemed perfect! We were met by both Olly and Dee who were very pleasant and happy to help. They talked us through the camp on how things worked and what was local then left us to it!
The site is extremely private and we got the entire field to ourselves. You cant see the site from the road and if you didnt know it was there, you wouldnt walk through. We only saw 3 people the whole time we stayed and it was because they were staying in a cottage down the road that is also owned by Dee and Olly.
There was an amazing bed in the large tent, a comfy sofa and some drawers as well as a bed in the cabin section. We decided to sleep in the tent both nights for the experience and even though there was no heating in the tent, we were supplied some very heavy blankets that we piled on. They also gave us a hot water bottle which made us roasting throughout the night!
The cabin which is separate from the tent, has a lovely little kitchen with all the utensils you'll need, several chairs and a lovely little wood burner which gives off enough heat to keep the entire cabin warm even when we had rain pouring down the first night (which was amazing to sit and watch). Bathroom was clean and large also, toilet so simple to use.
We saw a herd of deer the first night, 2 amazingly red foxes and countless ducks and geese! Honestly one of the best experiences we've ever had. It is also a 3 minute walk from Golf World which was perfect for us as my husband went over there for a round.
We would 100% recommend it to anyone who would like to camp but is not wanting to go the whole way and sleep on the floor!
Thank you so much Dee and Olly for such a memorable stay - we will be in contact soon to book again :D

We had a lovely 2 nights stay at Gemini camp. If you want a retreat and see no one then it's for you!
Everything was perfect from the tent, the cabin, the peace and all the wildlife. It's equipped carefully with lovely details that will make your trip feel like a little adventure whilst being equipped and comfortable. The log burner will keep you warm on evenings and many blankets are available for colder nights.
We spotted many visitors from our cabin : deers, foxes, pheasants, geese, ducks and lots of birds.
A public bridleway passes nearby giving access to walks trough the golf course and the educational farm.

This camp has everything you need... The host Dee is really friendly and helpful.
The bell tent is beautiful, wildlife all around you with deers, fox and different birds.
We loved sitting outside in the morning sun eating breakfast, it was just stunning.... We will definitely be coming back.

We had a wonderful stay at Gemini Camp. On the first morning we woke to find a startled deer outside the tent - it was magical!
We've done a fair bit of glamping over the years, but this was one of the most comfortable glamping experiences we've ever had - the tent was spacious and cosy, the bed was very comfortable, the shower was hot and powerful and the kitchen cabin was well-equipped, and a bit like a cosy bird-watching den!

A lovely base for walking or cycling and visiting the pretty local towns and villages - but you don't really need to leave your camp. Your three outdoor rooms are spacious, comfortable and a lot of fun, and the meadow and surrounding woods and fields are peaceful (apart from the birds and the odd plane) and buzzing with interesting life. There are footpaths straight out of the meadow, and Daisy May's farm animals and Elsenham church are just next door. Dee was a lovely, thoughtful and unobstrusive host, and offered advice, and recharging and a fridge (with wine) in a barn. Elsenham has a mini supermarket and the next village, Henham, is extremely pretty and has a nice community shop. The perfect antidote to urban lockdown and a great place to start a career in butterflyology!
