The great British climate, especially during the summer months can never truly be relied upon to be warm and dry. Perhaps that is why many of us choose to head overseas in search of guaranteed sunshine. But that shouldn’t deter us from considering the UK for a holiday. This amazing country has the most beautiful seasons, thanks to the precipitation that can fall from our skies. It’s just a case of being prepared for, as that well known band from the 90’s once proclaimed, Four Seasons in One Day.


On this rather wet and dreary May weekend, despite the fact that the rain is much appreciated by the farmers and gardeners amongst us, my mind wanders to our lovely glampers, tucked up cosily in their snug safari tents and what they might be doing to occupy their time.


Well, there are any number of activities, indoors and outdoors, that can be enjoyed – whatever the weather.




Four seasons in one day

Be prepared for Four Seasons in One Day

Let’s start with outdoors. I have quoted before in a previous blog

 “There is no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing” (Alfred Wainwright).

So make sure you have wet weather gear with you.
Wellies, waterproofs and woolly hats!




Hawthorn Blossom

Hawthorn Blossom

There is nothing quite like going out on a dreary cold day and filling your lungs (and souls) to the brim with the fresh country air and the glorious rural scenery. This time of year is especially stunning as the hedgerows and trees are awash with hawthorn blossom, the sweet smell of which fills the air so much more after rain.  With the bright greens of freshly bloomed leaves that glow like neon lights against the horizon.

Snug and cosy

Returning to your cosy safari tent with rosy cheeks and weary legs there is plenty of space to hang up wet coats and light the stove. Which, once lit they, along with you, will soon be warm and dry again.

Pop the kettle on, grab the biscuits and put your feet up listening to nature’s soundtrack. The pattering rain against the canvas and the bird song – which always seems to be louder for some reason when it is raining.




Once you are revitalised then why not crack open a board game or play those traditional card games that young and old never tire of. An old favourite of ours is Gin Rummy or Trumps. Or Snap – a great one to introduce the younger generation to the world of hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs.

And whilst you have the stove lit, why not pop something in the top oven to cook! Pizza’s are a popular favourite among our guests or maybe scones – we baked a successful batch on one occasion – mmm – I can smell them now, tasty!

Oh, and don’t forget the cabin bed with its fairy lights and soft as down duvet and pillows, where you can snuggle up with a good book and escape to a land of make believe.

Whether it’s hot showers (tick) cosy beds with 15 tog duvet’s (tick), electric blankets and hot water bottles (tick, tick), our luxuriously decked out safari tents will keep you warm and dry. We even provide old towels and a dog bed, should your furry friend be with you and need a rub down and cosy spot to sleep after an invigorating walk.






Our wonderful guests who were with us last October during Storm Alex said:


“These tents were so luxurious and had everything we could have needed. They certainly stood their ground in the effects of Storm Alex – not a single drip inside – we were very impressed! And the veranda meant a BBQ was still possible!… The girls loved hunting in the fields for stones, bugs and ‘dinosaur teeth!’ ”


“What an amazing place! We loved it even though we had storm Alex the entire time! Driving rain and wind all day and night. But we love our cosy glamping, lovely comfortable beds with amazing duvets. All the creature comforts you could wish for… Best experience ever and so much fun for the whole family.”



Fire Pit

And of course, should there be ‘Four Seasons in One Day’ and the sun appears, soak up those rays and enjoy the beautiful vista from the glorious Meadow Field. And when the stars come out you can get the fire pit lit and roast up a few S’mores!





Happy Glamping!
