The Cosy kitchen
There are two shared 'Glamp' kitchens here at Cosy Under Canvas. With 6 gas hobs and a wood fired rayburn in the woodland kitchen and 4 gas hobs in the stream side Kitchen.
The rayburn is primarily for heating the water for the showers so although we will light it every day, it is not necessary for it to be roaring all day to provide enough hot water. You are welcome to get involved and if you are happy to keep it stoked it's fabulous for slow cooking. A pot of stew can be popped in early morning and be ready for supper that night.
Please do not bring pizza’s (unless for the pizza oven), oven ready meals, or any other food that needs a hot oven to cook as the Rayburn is good for slow cooking only.
No need to bring tea, coffee, sugar, oil, salt or pepper, it’s all here and let us know if you need milk on arrival.
Embrace the outdoors and enjoy campfire cooking
Be adventurous and cook over the open fire. Each dome has its own tripod to stand over the fire, plus a large pot and a griddle to hang from it. The griddle is great for BBQing and the pot is perfect for cooking up a risotto, ratatouille, casserole or stew.
If you are looking for ideas there are cookbooks on site for inspiration and we've put together a few recipes we love here.
Cosy cook pots
To make it really easy we've also created a selection of Cosy Cook Pots, delicious meals that we've tried and tested and are easy to cook over the fire or on the hobs. We'll shop locally for all the tasty ingredients and let you have them in exactly the right quantities ready to cook yourselves. Armed with these and detailed preparation and cooking instructions you can't fail to cook up a campfire storm.

Cosy pizza oven
A pizza oven next to the kitchen in the woods is a firm favourite with our glampers. When we're fully booked we'll host a pizza night so you can enjoy authentic home cooked pizzas. Everything will be provided so you can relax and enjoy the experience. It's just £10 per adult/teen for a 12" pizza and £5 per child for a 6" pizza. We'll let you know in advance which night we'll be hosting the pizzas so you can be prepared.
When we're not fully booked just let us know if you'd like to use the pizza oven and we'll give you a lesson in lighting it and provide the wood free of charge. Plus if you don't feel up to making your own dough don't worry just buy your toppings and take advantage of dough pre order service.
£10 for 2 adults, £15 for a family of 4, 24 hours notice please!
The legendary Jakes' crepes have been a roaring success for the last few seasons now and he's got it off to a fine art!

With delicious toppings including Nutella and maple syrup plus tasty fruit shakes and locally roasted fresh coffee...that's breakfast sorted!
