The Details...

These four off-grid safari tents are exclusively for you and have a top-secret location in England’s lush Rutland County. Hidden in a 20 acre private woodland and with nothing but wild animal friends to greet you, it is a true sanctuary where you can escape and renew. Frolic through the enchanting woodland paths or unwind beneath star-studded vistas before bounding through the open pastures in this magical fairy-tale clearing.

All four Tents are lifted up off the forest floor and have waterproof canvas roofs and rustic chic interiors. Beautiful handcrafted furniture is sprinkled throughout along with idyllic views that can be watched by flickering candle light.

The eco-friendly lodges have spacious open-plan living areas with a country-style kitchen and an elegant dining area. Sit back on the sumptuous leather sofa or relax on the covered deck before watching the captivating sunset and its mesmerising glimmers. A large wood-burning stove is on hand for your meals, along with a single gas hob for those morning cups of tea. Fresh running water can be enjoyed from the vintage farmhouse sink, or from the private en-suite bathrooms that have modern luxury facilities.

These wood-floored tents sleep up to six people and have three charming double bedrooms with a sophisticated finish. A master king-size room is the largest of the three and is joined by a cosy twin room and a cute double cabin. Hidden behind shuttered doors off the main living area, the cabin room is a snug little hideaway where you can rest in peace and tranquillity.

Located in a picturesque spot in the rural Rutland area, there is an abundance of colourful fauna and flora waiting to be discovered. The Spindleberry Woods have all sorts of magnificent creatures, while the famous Rutland Water centre has an array of outdoor activities. The historic town of Uppingham is also just a short drive away and is just one of the traditional market towns to be found in this East Midlands area.

If you don’t want to leave your serene woodland retreat then there are all sorts of board games, books and bug-hunting kits to keep you and the kids entertained.
