Summer is here and we have availability

27th June 2019

At last the sun is shining. It’s my favourite time of year on the glamping site. The grass is in seed and waving enticingly in the breeze. The flowers are blooming and the countryside is green and lush. Add that to the sheer relaxation of sitting on the deck or by the BBQ and drinking in the view and I never want to leave!

Here’s what one of our recent guests (who didn’t want to leave either) wrote in our visitors book:

We still have slots available over the summer holidays, so take a look on our availability tab and book yourself a treat. The great outdoors is there waiting for you to explore and enjoy.

Night in the tent

6th May 2019

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 impressive sight. We then went to sleep listening to owls hooting in the wood and woke up to a couple of hares beside the tent. Talk about getting away from it all!

Spring is on the way!

31st January 2019

Yes really! Despite the current chill spring will be here in just a month or two. It’s definitely time to be thinking ahead and planning a relaxing break in the countryside. Easter holiday bookings are filling up fast, so check now and reserve your slot. We are open from mid-March.

Come and enjoy the ‘mad March hares’, the exhilarating views and cosy log burners. Once you arrive you won’t want to leave – read our reviews and see what other guests have said.

March and April are the months for enjoying invigorating weather and roaring fires. The evenings are long enough for leisurely board games, the days are warm enough for longer walks. Relish the first signs of spring and the increasing warmth of the sun. Relax in your own tent far away from the hassle of normal life. Book now to reserve your slice of peace!

As good as it gets.

This review seems to sum up what we offer our guests:

‘If you want glamping with the most glorious views and to feel like you have the hills to yourselves then look no further. The beds are super comfy and you have everything you need for glamping. So pour yourself a gin and tonic, sit out on the veranda and watch the sun go down. Magic.’

Come and try it for yourself.

The cosy safari tents provide just the place for families to spend unpressured time together. Roam the spectacular South Downs, hunker down and play Monopoly or venture further afield to the Science Centre or Portsmouth Naval Dockyard. The tents are spick and span after their spring spruce up. The leaves are just beginning to appear on the hawthorn. Two Lapwings have been spotted in a neighbouring field. Spring is definitely on the way, and for me glamping is the perfect way to enjoy it.

Autumn Breaks – Book now

21st July 2017

Autumn Breaks
Tt’s time to start thinking about an autumn break. The tents are amazingly cosy and the views are stunning. There is something extra special about toasting marshmallows over a campfire when it’s truly dark and snuggling into one of the comfiest beds you’ll ever sleep in, all whilst under canvas. Gaze at the stars, enjoy the owls hooting and relax.

Of course you’ll find plenty to do during the day as well: imagine relaxing on the platform in the Indian summer sun, strolling into the picturesque village of West Meon or standing on the ramparts on Old Winchester Hill and seeing all the way to the Solent.

£100 off
Our midweek discount of £100 is on offer for couples or couples plus a toddler stayng for 4 nights.
