Lovely stay in their Lapwing tent. 100% would recommend, beautiful countryside, lovely village, and short drives to some lovely Cotswold villages.- Joseph

We came to stay at the safari tents for my partners birthday, it is the perfect location for a rural retreat but only a stones throw from the quaint little town of Bourton-on-the-water. I would definitely recommend staying at the safari tents again. – Sam

When we arrived, our tent was clean and cozy. We enjoyed the rustic setting and our kids enjoyed playing on the playground and in the playroom. Even though it was midsummer, it got chilly at night and we were glad that the blankets were warm. The included space heater is also very effective at heating the living area and I recommend getting some firewood to burn in the log burner. Our kids enjoyed visiting the farm area, which had donkeys, goats, sheep, and alpacas. The location is nowhere, but also right in the middle of the Cotswold area so it is convenient as a base for sightseeing in the area. I would recommend the tents for anyone visiting the Cotswolds in summer and looking for a rustic experience. – Mike

We want you to enjoy your time with us and these rules are made with that in mind:
