Find an oasis of calm in your busy Hertfordshire life

If you are looking for an oasis of calm in your hectic Hertfordshire life then maybe you could do with stepping back in time.

Celtic Harmony Camp at Brickendon, a reconstructed Iron Age village set in 13 acres of ancient forest, is offering visitors the chance to escape to their own secluded woodland hideaway, complete with barbecue hamper, for a green day out with a difference.

Guests can enjoy their special meal in their hidden shelter then, suitably refreshed, simply relax in the peaceful country setting or explore the village along the Woodland Trail, have a go at longbow archery, listen to a Celtic story or watch as the children play in the Celtic playground or giant sandpit.

Hideaways & Hampers packages must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. They are available every day during Celtic Harmonys summer season from Sunday July 25 to Saturday August 28 and during the Winter Celebrations from Sunday October 24 to Saturday October 30.

Ideal for special events, family gatherings, celebrations or Sunday lunches, each package includes a BBQ hamper, hire of a Woodland Hideaway, cooking charcoal produced at Celtic Harmony Camp through sustainable woodland management, admission to the settlement and participation in activities and events. Special requests such as vegetarian food, birthday cakes or wheat-free meals are welcome.

Each hamper contains a meal for the specified number of people with specially selected tasty appetisers, green salad and potato salad, butcher's sausages and pork ribs or a vegetarian choice, freshly-baked bread, seasonal dessert and chilled drinks.

Hideaways & Hampers packages cost 70 for two adults and two children or 50 for two adults. Each extra child is 10 and each extra adult 15.

Celtic Harmony will also be offering a fresh barbecue every day during its summer peak season this year in a new purpose-built barbecue pit.

Celtic Harmony is a not-for-profit social enterprise designed to provide natural and cultural heritage education to increase awareness of mans interdependence with the natural world, thus promoting a more sustainable way of life.
