Homely and Comfortable Facilities All Provided for Our Luxury Eco Self catering Camping Experience to Create a Memorable, Relaxed Experience.We are very proud to say that we live in and are providing an eco friendly environment. On site, all our water supply comes from a natural spring. Dry composting toilets are used. We organically grow as many vegetables & fruit as the land will allow us, which provides us daily in the height of season. The chickens also provide some eggs daily.
Facilities for the Outdoor Communal Kitchen, BBQ area, Shower Room and Dry Composting Toilets
This is where in October, production begins with the process of picking, chipping, pressing and bottling all the apple juice and cider from Pink Apple Orchard. There are pots & pans, cutlery & all crockery needed, a kettle & toaster, gas cooker with four hobs, 1 small travel fridge and 1 full size fridge & a large sink. There are 2 separate bins: 1 for recycling and 1 for all compost waste.
There are books for all ages on Ireland, nature, fishing etc. and also many children’s games & books. (Please ask for games as they are now kept indoors for safety.) There is Scrabble, Cluedo, cards, UNO, Hamma beads etc….A list can be provided.
There is a large fixed communal BBQ area designated in front of the kitchen, nicely nestled into the corner of the orchard, so you are able to take a seat & enjoy the view of either Lough Allen & the ‘Iron mountains’ or of course the nature within Elsie’s Pink Apple Orchard. There is a large outdoor seating area with a large hand crafted wooden table situated within beautifully hand crafted willow ‘fedging’, hazel hurdles and a fusion of these two woods to create an arbour over the children’s play area.
There are also currently 2 portable hand made BBQ’s for charcoal use. There is a small area for a safe/contained camp fire for those yummy, moorish marsh mellows!!! Perhaps some music…bring along a guitar, fiddle or flute for a session on those cosy nights around the fire.
New to 2017, is an outdoor traditional Pizza oven. This can be used on request through the booking process as it takes hours to heat up with natural wood, so perfect for big family gatherings and adult group bookings.
Wood can be provided for the BBQ and camp fire (at extra cost).
