Hidden Meadows Glamping site is 25 acres of wild flower meadows, woodland and hedges dating back to Saxon times (a rare find these days), ponds, reed beds and a large stream which meanders through the middle of it, perfect for a quiet, relaxing walk along at any time of day. Who knows, you may be lucky enough to spot a kingfisher!
The Safari Tents are sited in one of the meadows (car free site) with views of the surrounding meadows and woodland, they are furnished and equipped to a luxury standard so that you have everything you need for your ‘get away from it all’ holiday.
