Bowrundel Lifestyle: Safari tent general view

General

  • Family glamping in fully furnished tents near Tewkesbury
  • A 25-minute drive to Cheltenham, and 35 minutes to All Things Wild
  • Nature walk, play area on site; pubs, shops and golf 10 minutes’ drive

Offering luxury glamping in furnished tents at The Paddock, Bowrundel Lifestyle sits in Gloucestershire countryside near Tewkesbury, and is handy for both the M5 and M50. It’s a family-friendly spot with a kids’ play area and plenty of room for ball games and outdoor activities, and parents can easily keep an eye on their kids from the tents.

Speaking of the tents, these are safari tents that come decked out with beds, a sofa, a kitchenette and a woodburner, plus festoon and fairy lights for a magical night-time vibe. A short walk takes you to the old stable block, now converted to washrooms housing spotless toilet and shower facilities, plus a baby-changing area.

On this eco-friendly site, hot water is mostly generated by solar panels mounted on the roof. If you do decide to cook for yourselves, the washing-up area is at the side of the stable block – you can pick up stuff from the supermarkets in Tewkesbury (10 minutes’ drive), where there are also plenty of traditional beamed pubs serving tasty local grub if you’re having a break from cooking.

Back at base, there’s an on-site nature trail where you can spot wild flowers, birds and insects. The owners encourage you to stick to the footpath so you don’t disturb the wildlife.

Wow what can i say. The safari tent was so …04/27/2022

  • Foxglove 2 bedroom safari tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Wow what can i say. The safari tent was so awesome and everything was thoughtfully and carefully planned. We had cooking facilities, wood burner for the chilly nights, and comfortable bedding with thick quilts. They also provided hot water bottles and blankets which was much appreciated. The showers and toilets were all new and clean. I loved the layout, style and use of the wood cladding (very eco)
    It was so peaceful and we were the only campers during our stay. We didn't see anyone else, we had the site to ourselves. Wish we could stayed longer and the weather warmer as it was so cold during our stay. The log burner really helped thankfully.

    Disliked: 

    However I felt the hot water wasn't hot enough I believe it was heated up by solar, Despite that, I have no complaints about everything else.

History abounds in this corner of Gloucestershire, with medieval Tewkesbury just 10 minutes’ drive down the road. Stroll in the grounds of the abbey or picnic at the spot where the Avon and Severn rivers meet – and there are lots of indie shops to snoop around too, offering anything from antiques to vintage albums. You might also like to admire the Georgian architecture in elegant Cheltenham, or explore the historic docks in Gloucester (both 25 minutes’ drive).

If you’d rather get active, golf and boating are within 10 minutes’ drive, and you can fish for carp on the River Severn (15 minutes). Bredon Hill National Nature Reserve (20 minutes) is a lovely spot for meandering walks in woodland and meadows to Iron Age forts and castle ruins.

The kids can get hands-on with keeper sessions and meerkat encounters at All Things Wild activity centre (35 minutes), spot the artworks at Showborough House Garden Sculpture Exhibition (10 minutes’ walk) or let off steam in the adventure playground at Sudeley Castle and Gardens (half an hour’s drive), while you check out the Tudor-themed exhibitions.
