The camping field


The camping field is a five-minute walk away from the main entrance to The Hive along a gravelled path.

A public footpath runs beside the field with a hedgerow or fence marking the boundary, but the field cannot be seen from any roads.

In the camping field there is

  • a large area of short grass 
  • a wild-flower meadow
  • an orchard
  • a fenced off damp meadow


The hire charge includes dinner and breakfast. All food is freshly prepared on site by Waltham Forest Catering. The menu is vegetarian or vegan. 

Dinner is served 18:00-19:00

Breakfast is served 08:00-09:00

There is no shop on site, so you may wish to bring snacks, but we ask that no food is taken into the pods. There are lockers available in The Lodge.
