Overview - Property ref BGLL
Multi-Award winning Best Glamping site, in Devon and the SouthWest, for the past 2 consective years and one of the top 3 sites in the country.
There are five luxurious safari lodges to choose from, each with a log burner, private shower room and wonderful furnishings but that’s not the best bit! The lodges are located within seventeen acres of beautiful countryside, nestling in a private secluded valley in North Devon. Follow the streams and nature trails, build dens, or have a boat race around the boating lake. If that’s not enough then set down to a game of football in the football field, cricket, basketball, petanque, bowls or whatever game takes your fancy as there are plenty on offer.
For you adults there is a lovely hot tub, situated away from the lodges overlooking the lake and setting sun. You are able to book this along with babysitting for the sunset hour for £60. The hot tub has its own private changing room, outdoor shower, natural aromatherapy products, fruited iced, water acrylic glasses and a bucket of ice. There are bottles of fizz, cider and beer available to buy or why not save the bottle of fizz you are given as a welcome gift.
The owners have thought of everything, even a way of making sure you get time off from cooking should you want it. Simply choose from the range of breakfasts, picnics or evening meals and leave your order in The Larder by 8pm and then send the kids to pick it up the next day. Simple! The menu consists of many family favourites, such as spaghetti bolognaise and lasagne to baked salmon and Thai green curry, all using locally sourced ingredients. For breakfast you can opt for freshly baked croissants or maybe a chocolate twist! For sweet teeth there is a fab selection of puddings to choose from too.
On arrival each lodge is stocked with basic essentials to get you started; tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate, a bowl of fruit and essential condiments plus a platter of fresh herbs to use for cooking.
