Our spacious safari tents, Yellowhammer and Lapwing, are situated at either end of a lovely grassy meadow. They are far enough apart to ensure privacy and your complete peace, but near enough to walk to if your friends are in the other tent. Both tents are the same size and are similarly, but individually, furnished. Each sleeps six people in a king bedroom, twin bedroom and double cabin bed. Each bed is ready made with luxurious cotton bed linen and a dual tog duvet to cater for any temperature. There is a bathroom cabin with toilet, basin and luxury shower and wood burner. Towels, toiletries (eco-friendly) and other essentials are all provided.
In the heart of the off-grid living area is a wood-burning range with a large hob top and roomy oven for cooking. The flaming wood-burner will keep you warm and toasty, while the solar-powered fairy lights and paraffin lamps will ensure you’re never left in the dark.
As well as the wood burner we provide a gas ring for brewing up a quick cup of tea or coffee or cooking when you don’t fancy lighting the stove. The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, basic cooking utensils including sharp knives, things like cling film and tinfoil and everyday ingredients such as oil, vinegar, tea, coffee and fresh herbs. Tea towels and hand towels are also provided along with washing up essentials. Plus, there’s a small solar fridge for keeping your wine and milk nice and cool. Water comes straight off the mains, so there’s no need to lug heavy bottled water with you.
We have activities to suit your every mood. There’s a chest full of your favourite board games or you can simply chat around the mesmerising wood-burner. Try your hand at identifying the animals or birds you saw during the day or plan tomorrow’s adventures together using our maps or ideas folder.
Outside, there’s a sofa, chairs and table to ensure you can watch the sunset in comfort and style. There’s even a fire pit where you can toast marshmallows or barbecue.
Got an extra couple of people or older children wanting even more adventure? That’s not a problem. Hire our unique Tentsile tree tent – we’ll bet you’ve never stayed in anything like it. It will be erected for you in the woods about 75 metres from your tent.
Night in the tent
Hugh and I spent last Saturday night in Yellowhammer. It was a real treat. A gaudy cock pheasant strutted past the window, we enjoyed the sunset from the decking and then after a cosy evening with friends there was a clear night and we could appreciate the stars. With no light pollution it was an […]
