The Owner Says
A stay in one of our boutique eco safari lodges will help you get close to nature and give you the treat of tranquility. The lodges are huge (six metres by nine metres - and three metres high) and can sleep up to six people. They are floor boarded throughout and elevated on timber platform with a veranda. They include full self-catering facilities with running water and are thoughtfully designed throughout.
All of our lodges feature two bedrooms (king size and twin beds) with beds made up with luxury feather bedding, hotel quality linen, and Welsh made wool blankets. There is an open plan lounge with two stylish sofas which convert to single beds as well as a large wicker storage basket/table with a selection of games. Interior lighting is high-quality LED lanterns hung from a handcrafted lamp stand.
The tent also has a kitchen and dining area with furniture that has been designed and made on-site by our resident artisan Glen. The kitchen has a two-burner stove, sink with running cold water, and all the pots, pans and utensils you’ll need, plus a selection of essential provisions and a large cool box (ice bricks provided).
Outside, there’s a BBQ/fire pit area, with comfortable campaign chairs. Hurricane oil lamps for a lovely outdoor light ambiance, and solar fairy lights over the veranda.
A welcome hamper and basket of firewood are provided for your arrival.
The meadow has a toilet and shower units, located between two lodges, with hot showers and compost toilets, to compliment the flush toilet and shower block in the courtyard.
The price of the pitch includes four guests and one car parking space. Extra adults are charged at £25 (PP/PN/), children at £15 (PP/PN), dogs at £5 PN (max two per pitch). You can also pay for an extra car parking space at £5 per night
