Set in a meadow on a small, private Garden Centre. It is located in the countryside yet only a few minutes from the M5 – a great spot from which to explore Devon and the South West.
This safari tent in ‘Buttercup’ was made by Albion Canvas and has been thoughtfully furnished with quality furniture and facilities, and is one of 2 quality Safari tents in the meadow. Joined in the field is ‘Cowslip’, another safari tent, positioned about 20 meters away on the other side of the bathroom / washing up cabin. There’s plenty of space between the tents so that you can enjoy your own company!
So if you are seeking to impress a loved one at this time of love and romance without having to book an overpriced hotel, surrounded by 100’s of strangers, and instead choosing a quaint and secluded location you can enjoy with your beau or belle, then let it be this. You won’t be disappointed!
