Five Luxurious Safari Lodges
All fully equipped and beautifully furnished. Every detail considered, nothing overlooked, everything included!
Each lodge sleeps up to 6 people and we are happy to welcome up to 2 dogs.
From firewood to fizz, coffee to conditioner, lemons to loo paper: we have tried to think of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You should only have to bring clothes and a toothbrush.
Uno! Check Mate! Triple Word Score! World Domination!
Put away the gadgets and enjoy a game of Monopoly, Scrabble or Uno! The blanket box, filled with our favourite games, and the three seater leather vintage chesterfield sofa provide entertainment & comfort, whilst you bask in the warmth of the wood burner.
Cook up a Feast
At the heart of the lodge is our wood burning stove: it will keep the lodge warm in all weathers, and provide a means of cooking, either on top, as you would on a hob, or in its spacious oven compartment. There is even a slot for warming your plates! We also provide a small gas ring so you can enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate (all included within the lodge) without having to fire up the stove.
Wash away the cares of the day
Each lodge has its own en-suite shower room and separate en-suite wash room, with flushing loo and basin. Hot water for the shower, sink and basin is provided by a wood burning boiler, that also ensures the shower room is warm as toast! We provide all your bath linen, plus a gorgeous range of natural aromatherapy bathroom products.
A great night’s sleep
Snuggle into a warm bed and under a thick duvet. Enjoy the feel of luxurious White Company Egyptian Cotton bed linen. Not a sleeping bag or roll mat in sight! This is Glamorous Camping after all! Be lulled to sleep by the babble of the stream, the wind in the trees, or the patter of rain on the canvas roof. Hear the owls calling to each other. Breathe in that fresh air and sleep soundly. Sweet dreams!
Sit back, put your feet up and pour a glass of wine.
Watch the sun set on the sea or the stars twinkling in the night sky, or the weather racing up the valley. The large deck area at the front of the lodge has a sofa, table and chairs so you can sit back and enjoy the amazing views!
There is also a private BBQ area above each lodge, complete with Kauai fireball, bench and picnic table.
Take time out from cooking
Let us cook for you: Freshly baked bread & pastries, pies & pasties, scrumptious suppers and delicious desserts. Just place your order by 8pm the night before and collect from the Larder shop the next day. Simply delicious made deliciously simple!
We have 17 acres of beautiful countryside for you to enjoy at Longlands, including meadows, ancient woods and streamside walks to discover & explore. We even have our own boating lake complete with our boats Oxford & Cambridge so you can enjoy your very own boat race.
The lakeside meadow is perfect for rounders and there is also a football goal and cricket net. Under cover we have table tennis and there are books & games in our on site shop.
The lake is stocked with rainbow trout. Why not borrow a rod and try to catch your own supper!
