Hood Barn Dormitory in the School grounds

At only 50mtrs distance, this is the nearest overnight accommodation to the main hall!
Hood Barn is a beautiful two storey straw-bale building. For the Mango, the two upstairs class rooms will convert into dorms, sleeping a maximum of 8 people per room. Bring your own 'bed' which can remain set up for the duration of your stay and to which you can retire at any time you like.
Downstairs has a little kitchen that can be used by dormers as well as campers, where you can make your own breakfast. There is also a seated area outside, where you can hang out and meet with participants.
Hood Barn has a couple of indoor showers and we also set up a fantastic hot outdoor shower unit just behind the building.


Bring your own Tent/Campervan and stay in the school grounds

The Tango Mango Camp site is a charming playing-field just a stone's throw from the dance hall. You have access to the communal campers' breakfast area and showers in the adjoining Hood Barn, as described above.


Prices for Dorming and Camping:

accommodationprices On-campus accommodation comes along with one meal per day. You can choose to have either lunches or dinners.
The on-campus participants can either book themselves in for the second meal that's not automatically included in the dance pass, or do their own thing. There is a small kitchen in Hood Barn with limited facilities, so you may want to bring your own camping stove. There are also several good food venues within easy driving distance of the school.

People who are staying off-campus will also be able to book in for lunchtime or evening meals with advance notice, provided there is space.

*As it is our last Tango Mango, we will have one celebratory day, which may well include a BBQ (yes, with meat too!) - dependent on the weather.


B&Bs or self contained rooms/flats within walking distance of the school

If you would like to attend the Mango with more comfort and personal space, we have a chalet available with two bedrooms and a large lounge, 5 min walk away from the Tango Mango venue. You could either rent it as a whole or rent just one room. For more info click on this link or call us on 01803 226127. Looking forward to hearing from you.
