Embrace the outdoors and enjoy campfire cooking
Campfires are very much encouraged here at Cosy Under Canvas, so be adventurous and cook over the open fire.
We supply a Koitlich (tripod) for each dome 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 about what you can cook over the fire there are plenty of cookbooks on site for inspiration. We've put together a few recipes we love here. They are firm favourites with our glampers!
Cosy pizza oven
A pizza oven next to the kitchen is a firm favourite with our glampers. When we're fully booked we'll light it one night a week so you can enjoy authentic home cooked pizzas. If you don't feel up to making your own dough don't worry just buy your toppings and take advantage of our stash of home made dough and sauce ready to use.
We'll let you know in advance which night we'll be lighting the oven 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.
The Cosy Kitchen
We have two shared 'Glamp' kitchens here at Cosy Under Canvas. There are 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 morning, 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, oven ready meals, or any other food that needs a hot oven to cook in as the Rayburn is for slow cooking only.
No need to bring tea, coffee, sugar, oil, salt or pepper, it’s all here and there's a pot of fresh herbs planted up next to the kitchens, so help yourselves!
