I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Better than camping in your own backyard

Glamping is returning to Mayfield Garden this summer from 27 December 2022 until 26 January 2023. For $475 per couple, you will enjoy a night of glamping luxury, a three-course dinner in the onsite restaurant and a two-day garden pass. The tents accommodate up to four people, two adults and two children under 16 years of age ($105 per child).

On arrival at the garden, check in at the ticket office next to the cafe. You will receive wristbands for garden entry, a garden map, a code to unlock your tent and an all important battery operated lantern. After booking a table for dinner between 6pm and 8pm, you will be directed to park in a specific area. Once you have your wristband, the garden is free to explore on both days, including after hours access to the 15 hectare Mayfield Water Garden.

The glamping site contains 15 well-appointed and comfortable unpowered teepee style tents. Linen, towels and some toiletries are provided and the comfortable queen size mattress is on a raised wooden platform. The toilet block is a short walk away and there is also a small portable shower block and a communal meeting area are central to the tents. Power is available in some tents for those with medical equipment but needs to be pre arranged. Power boards for device charging are in the cafe and the friendly staff will provide a wi-fi password.

A three-course dinner (children have two courses) is part of the package with alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks available at an extra cost. The menu is seasonal and utilises produce from the estate and local areas. The meal was well presented and tasty and there were options for vegetarians, dairy free and gluten free diets. Breakfast is not included, but the cafe is open from 8am to glampers or one can choose to pre order a breakfast pack which is delivered to the tents between 7.30am and 8am. Please note you are not permitted to bring your own food and/or drinks.

Star gazing is a popular evening entertainment as is getting acquainted with your fellow glampers in the communal area. As quiet time is 10pm, we settled by 10.30pm, waking with the sun for an early walk in the gardens before breakfast and checkout.
