Our luxury Safari tent offering complete solitude and privacy from the world with no interaction from any other people and complete privacy. The Safari tent is set in a wooded dell under the canopy of mature beech trees. The wood is known as King Edward VIII wood and was planted on top of the old foundations of the Hall after it was demolished due to a dispute with the Tooke family. The dell was excavated to product the flint for the foundations of the old hall and the walled garden. This luxury Safari tent sleeps up to 6 people with amazing comfort and luxury. There are outdoor cooking facilities and a fire pit to enjoy on cold evening’s whilst taking in the beautiful canopy of the stars. The safari tent also has a wood burner to compliment those chilly evenings with the family.
