The Owner Says
Sleeping up to six, this Lodge Tent is great for a family or small group with a four-poster bed for the parents, twin beds and a double sofa bed. The tent is furnished in a shabby-chic style and has a wood-burning stove, instant hot running water and six hot water bottles available for those chillier nights. The tent has its own kitchen cabin and cooking can be done either on the two-ring gas hob or outside on the barbecue. The veranda is a great place to just sit back, relax and have a cold beer or glass of fizz. You also have your own private toilet, shower and bath.
All of the tents at Jolly Days are set within 15 acres of a 200 acre woodland with no tents closer than 15 metres and many much further than that. Being in a quiet woodland you can expect to hear the murmur of voices, occasional laughter and the natural wildlife, all adding to the feeling of escaping life. Jollydays Glamping attracts couples, groups, families, reunions, walkers, non campers, the young and old.
Your tent is kitted out with bedding and furniture but don't forget to bring a torch, clothes, shampoo and other personal cleaning products, Food and drink, slippers and wellies!
