Glamping West Midlands Health and Safety Policy

Since these days no one is allowed to use their own common sense, we are forced to push Health and Safety advice down your throats to ensure that you stay is pleasant, safe and free from injury.

Please read and follow the Risk Assessments found in each Glamping unit, in particular with regards to the instructions on how to cope with the Wood Burning Hot Tubs

If you are unlucky enough to do yourself an injury, there are First Aid Kits in each accommodation and we will transport you to Hospital if necessary.

Please keep a close eye on your children. The animals are extremely friendly but they are still Animals and therefore can be unpredictable at times.

We are trusting you to use common sense and really want you to have a great stay, so Stay Safe!
