What a great weekend – Thanks!

By | Bell Tent Weddings, campsite | No Comments

Another lovely review for us – this time from Olga

Dear team!

Please accept our wholehearted thank you for this weekend.  This is an amazingly chill site and we felt so well taken care of.  Tiz, you were absolutely right on location.  It was perfect – scenic, lots to do, and not do, perfectly sized fire pitches, those tire swings are amazing, awesome kitchen tent, lovely neighbours (we also did our best to be lovely not sure if it worked!) and off the hook toilet which was converted into a haunted house on the last day – ‘smells like someone died in here’ and ‘i hear voices’

Campsite Warden and Bell tent production staff Required

By | Bell Tent Weddings, campsite | No Comments

pop up campsites bell tents and shepherds hutsWe are a Bell tent and campsite company, looking for staff with a wide range of skills, from being physically able to lift 25-30 kg in weight but yet make a bedroom up from scratch including making beds and bedding. You need to common sense and the ability to think and operate outside the normal box. 

We have 2 campsites that require wardens from Friday- Sunday, the central brighton campsite is situated in woodingdean, and attracts large groups wanting to use the site as a cheap living alternative to access the town centre. So this means the campsite has a very lively vibe and has very busy periods on friday night checkin and sunday check out but the rest of the time can be empty.

Alternatively the Riversite by Steyning west sussex (25min outside brighton) has a very kicked back approach and is mainly attracting families and large groups of friends eager to take advantage of the river or bushcraft activities. 

You will need your own vehicle or be able to reach these two locations if interested please send a CV or email illustrating previous relevant work experience and/or personal attributes to me Tiz at info@popupcampsites.com

Overview of the Campsite and Bell tent production jobs

Our camping seasons run from April/May to August. The river campsite is off-grid. The positions often are likely to suit a couple or individuals who are comfortable with the general public and out door living.

The primary responsibility of the warden(s) is to enhance the experience of our campers and ensure their wellbeing and that of the campsite. We never ask staff to do anything we have not all done within the core team ourselves. You need to be hardworking, willing to work in sometimes through tough weather conditions have the ability to big deep and keep going.

We pay a sliding scale for different jobs, the bell tent production is job based, the wardening is fixed with extra jobs within the role on a per hour base rate. We do look for relaxed down to earth individuals, with strong senses of humour and people skills.

We will require you to start work on the 1st bank holiday in May and finish no earlier than the last weekend in August. The working days will often stretch from Thursday Bell tent production, Friday campsite production Sat/Sunday wardening, Monday production pack down.

Pride weekend

By | campsite, Uncategorized | No Comments

Hi Liz thank you for making our stay as easy and comfortable as it was. 

I was especially impressed by the little touches (Lollies in toilets, bringing us water and preparing our fires). 
Overall we had a great stay at your relaxed quirky campsite and are all looking forward to returning!
We will hopefully be booking again same time next year as there was such a good atmosphere at Pride.

 

Heavenly hen party

By | campsite, Uncategorized | No Comments

What an amazing weekend at the Brighton Base Camp! It’s so convenient to Brighton but also a little world of its own – you almost feel like you’re on two hen nights in one.

I cannot imagine a better start to our weekend than sitting around the campfire with a glass of Prosecco, listening to some music and tucking-in to Sharen’s delicious curry. Peeking out from our tents, bleary-eyed, to see the beautiful view – just in time to receive one of Sharen’s breakfast baps – was also a bit of a treat every morning.
The big tent was lots of fun too. Brighton is a brilliant place to go on a hen night, and this is a fantastic way to give it a bit of a different, and hugely memorable, twist.
