General

A freshly set-up, exclusive and luxury UK glamping holiday, on an idyllic wooded estate in Somerset and Dorset.
We have placed two safari-style canvas tents in a bucolic cider orchard, surrounded by woodland, ensuring privacy and seclusion.

The tents have a fully plumbed-in kitchen with a four-ring gas hob cooker as well as an ensuite shower and loo providing complete privacy. In front of the two tents are the campfire which you can cook on and sit around deep into the night.

Imagine sitting back on your veranda, in the dappled shade of the old orchard, with your gin and tonic (half litre included) and dreaming of the experiences you are about to have on this glamping trip.
