Frequently Asked Questions
What is the ideal kit to bring to 7th Rise?
We provide comfortable mattresses with clean sheets, duvets and pillows. Please bring your own sleeping bag and blankets if you feel the cold. We also really encourage sleeping outdoors, after all a true re-wilding experience should include at least one night out in the woods or under the stars! Most people rarely get the opportunity so we encourage you take it!
Is firewood included?
Yes. There will always be an allocated amount of split logs for the duartion of your stay. We also encourage the collection of deadwood from the woodland floor.
Are there any showers?
Yes! Well, sort of... Newly installed in June 2018, we now have 2 cold, outdoor, fresh water showers, with a view of the river Fal! New to 2019 we will be installing 2 open-air hot showers!
What are the sleeping arrangements?
We sleep up to 18 people comfortably in our 7 rustic accommodations: the cottage (sleeps 7-9 in 4 rooms, 1 of which is a bunk), hunting lodge (sleeps 2), boathouse (sleeps 2), treehouse (sleeps 2), potting shed (sleeps 3), shepherd's hut (sleeps 2).
What is the route like from the meeting point to the Cottage?
From the parking area/meeting point, allow 10 minutes on the walk down and 15 minutes on the way up. We will be crossing farm fields with animals in, and walking down a fairly steep dirt track. It can get muddy at times through the fields and woods so appropriate footwear and a moderate level of fitness is required. Please do not bring pull along luggage. Back packs are much more appropriate and be prepared to carry whatever you bring (including alcohol) for 10-15 minutes.
Shall I bring extra food for the catered experience weekends?
We pride ourselves on supplying the best quality, local produce celebrating and supporting the areas hunters, butchers, grocers and bakers. However feel free to bring any extras you may enjoy but be careful not to spoil your re-wilding experience by bringing too many comforts from home. It defeats the purpose.
How far is the nearest shop?
The nearest shop is around 6 miles from the road, and the cottage is around a 15 minute walk from the road. We recommend you collect any supplies before arriving as it is impractical and detrimental to your experience to leave during your time here.
Do I have to get involved in all the activities during an experience weekend?
No, we promote freedom here at 7th Rise so you are at liberty to do as much or little as you please. But we do encourage you to at least try things!
What is the deposit/cancellation policy?
A 35% non refundable deposit is required to secure your booking. The remaining balance is due no later than 30 days before the booked date. If you wish to rearrange dates more than 4 weeks before a trip no costs are incurred.
Please see our 'Terms and Conditions' for full refund/rebooking options. We are a niche, outdoor experience by booking only so unfortunately short notice changes leaves us without the sufficient opportunity to rebook the experience.
