- Rural glamping two miles from village, and half a mile from local pub
- A 15-minute drive to Eurostar at Ashford; 30 minutes to Camber Sands
- Bed linen, bathrobes, fridge, private garden and barbecue all provided
Bring your walking boots, your keenest appetite and your dog to Woodchurch Safari Lodge in Kent: there are first-rate strolls and hikes all around this dog-friendly glampsite, including one to an award-wining pub (and its food menu) a half-mile amble away.
A few minutes' saunter from the safari lodge will take you to a local path leading to around three hours' worth of walking in scenic Kent countryside, while the South Of England Rare Breeds Centre is a three-and-a-half-mile walk to the south. This is top terrain for cycling too, with with National Cycle Route 18 (a 61-mile route from Canterbury to Tunbridge Wells) passing by; secure bike storage is available for guests.
The site has splendid access to and from as well, as it's a 15-minute drive to the Eurostar terminal at Ashford if you're heading to or from the continent. And if you seek the beach? It's about half an hour from here to splendid Camber Sands.
The lodge is kitted out with beds, towels, bed linen and bathrobes, as well as solar-powered lighting, a fridge, charging facilities, and water and food bowls provided for your friend. A private garden, private car parking space and a barbecue are just outside.
Open from 21/06/2021 to 30/09/2021

Fantastic stay at the Safari tent, felt like a real …
The tent was clean and had everything we needed for …
From the manager...
Thanks for your feedback Jeff.
The ground here is clay and in the summer with less rain it dries out and cracks. There isn’t much we can do about that. We did advise you of this when you arrived.
From the manager...
Very disappointed with your review and feel your scores are much lower than warranted.
This is glamping accommodation and part of the charm is it’s totally off-grid. There is lighting in the accommodation which is run by solar panels and one of your party was shown how to use this. Torches are also available and supplied.
The toilet is an event toilet which is serviced at least once a week and is kept clean and tidy.
Given 4 people stayed for a total of £125 per night, we also feel you’re being pretty unfair by saying it isn’t value for money either.
Still. Clearly glamping wasn’t for your party.
Beautiful and well equipped

Potter into Woodchurch, a mile or so away, for a wander around the Woodchurch Village Life Museum on Susan's Hill, then a clamber up to Woodchurch windmill for handsome views over the Walland marshes to the Channel. (Most happily too, the mill – when open in summer – is accessible via the footpath between the local pubs…)
About a mile out of town is the South of England Rare Breeds Centre, where there are farm animals to see, a petting barn where your small sorts can snuggle smaller critters, and wildlife gardens, a butterfly tunnel and an aviary to roam around. Or stay close to home to see species like deer, squirrels, woodpeckers, herons and kestrels in the countryside around the site and along the peaceful cycle lanes nearby.
More birdwatching and nature spotting is easily sorted at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve (35 minutes' drive), voted Britain's favourite reserve in 2016 and home to all sorts of species around its coastal marsh, reedbeds, shingle and saltmarsh. The reserve has miles of paths to tramp, five hides to birdwatch from and events and guided walks all year round.
Other top local options include a puff on the Kent & East Sussex Railway (15 minutes), a grownup look at Chapel Down winery (20 minutes), or taking your camera along to Bodiam Castle, set spectacularly in its own moat near Robertsbridge.
