Good fortune has me passing by Markington again for a few days and it is a great opportunity to give you an update on the Glamping at Markington.
Down in the Copper Beech Glade, a magical gypsy camping experience is now well established by Jules and Hank. Tucked away in the grounds of historic Markington Hall, ancestral home of the 19th century slave emancipist William Wilberforce family; past the old mill and millrace is the Copper Beech Glade where the trio of gypsy wagons are located. They provide accommodation in an enchanting setting for a short stay or a longer holiday.
Three vans are settled under the magnificent huge Copper Beech trees with a vista of the Markington brook babbling by. “The River Robert” meanders its way through the grounds of Markington Hall completing a truly magnificent backdrop of English countryside.
Those of us who know Jules and Hank can attest to the gracious, generous and caring hosts that they are. In all the years of visiting and staying with them at High Mill Farm, later at Wallerthwaite Farm and now at Markington Hall, our visits have never been anything else other than splendid. Reading through their guest book certainly confirms this is not just unique to us. We feel so blessed and thrilled to count them amongst our “bestie” friends.
If you ever pass this way and decide to have a glamping experience, tell them that DC sent you!!
Cheers DC XX
