Family-sized safari tents on the edge of the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire

“Home comforts with the great outdoors right on your doorstep”, is how Charlotte Taylor succinctly describes her family-run glamping site, set amid an apple orchard at the foot of the Malvern Hills. “No rushing to the supermarket or squeezing in towels and bedding. Everything is here”. The 17-acre rural patchwork of meadows, hedgerows and natural ponds cater to every need. The farm pantry sells everything you need, while the glamping accommodation comprises a pair of family-sized safari tents each with fully equipped kitchen, sofas and proper beds.

Throw in the bikes that are available to rent and the family-friendly pub right next door and you quickly realise there’s not a thing that you could want for. The attention to detail is exceptional. Fluffy towels are ready in your bathroom, there’s a breakfast pack provided for your first morning and cool white wine awaits you in the fridge and the woodburner and fire pit cast a warm glow as the sun goes down. They love dogs and offer a ‘dog stay pack’ which includes a crate, bowls and tether. Just as well – the Malvern Hills AONB is on your doorstep, with footpaths and biking trails to die for (and onsite wash-down facilities for muddy paws and boots on your return).



Unique interiors with sleep lofts and vintage furnishings. Tree trunk and cedar walls, muslin drapes in the bedrooms and everything you need for your holiday.

Cook and dine inside and out – In the kitchen you’ll find a gas hob, Belfast sink, fridge and toaster. All utensils, pans and more to cook up a storm inside or outside over the fire pit.

Wood burner - Snuggle down next to the wood burner on vintage leather sofas, delve into the games box for some entertainment.

The bathrooms are connected by wooden boardwalk, your private bathroom is complete with power shower, mains flushing loo, and copper taps with a heated towel rail, hairdryer and fluffy towels to ensure you feel pampered.
