Family-friendly farm glamping, with luxury bell tents in a glorious natural woodland setting

Kudos to the farm glamping site that tells you to 'get lost' before you've even arrived — that's confidence all right, but owners Julian and Sara White have that in spades. Get Lost in Nature is the name of the family-friendly bell-tent site on their working farm in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside — rolling fields, grazing sheep, handsome South Devon cattle, and a picturesque woodland setting for a real bit of back-to-nature glamping. If the name is unusual, so is the backstory — Julian is the former Leicester Tigers, England, and British Lions rugby player — but the 400-acre farm is no plaything and the camping is right on the button, perfect for families and nature-lovers.

The five bell tents are set on raised decking to make the most of the views and are scattered around the farm's nine-acre woodland, so there's a very private feel. With grass under your feet and wildflowers in abundance, it's all about embracing a natural life on the farm – from newborn lambs and calves in spring to the combines working the fields in autumn. Nature is ever-present — just check out the names of the tents (hare, squirrel, kite, fox, pheasant) for a roll-call of the local wildlife. Furnishings are country-rustic and fuel for the campfire is sustainably sourced, though electricity still powers the lights, your tent's included mini-fridge, and the plug sockets to charge your phone. In short, the tents are sympathetic to the natural surroundings but still prioritise your comfort.

You have your own fire pit for cooking, toasting marshmallows, and star-gazing, though if you're feeling sociable you can amble over to the central fire pit area in the woods and meet your fellow campers. There are no cooking facilities inside the tents, but there is an outdoor kitchen with a microwave, a communal fridge, hot tap, and tea and coffee-making facilities. There's also shelter, a wood-burner, bean bags, and a big table in the old converted sheep shed if the weather takes a turn for the worse. If you want a breakfast hamper or a barbecue pack, just ask — the farm is big on supporting local suppliers. As for entertainment, the kids can tumble in the woods or play on the rope swings and zip wire, and there are always animals to see and another day on the farm unfolding in front of you.

The location in this largely unheralded part of England is excellent. The nearest pub selling great food is just a country walk away, the nearest market town with a plethora of lovely coffee shops and eateries a ten-minute drive, and within half an hour there's a huge range of family-friendly attractions. But when you're lost in nature, time has a habit of slipping away as you do nothing very much at all in some extremely green and pleasant English countryside.

Details

Facilities

Our 5 6m bell tents (each with woodland animal names) are located throughout the pretty 9-acre woodland. They each offer: a rug, bedding, cushions, and throws, bedside lights, two beanbags, electricity for charging your phone and a small fridge - ideal for storing a bottle of milk for that much-needed morning cuppa!

Outside each tent, you'll find a bistro-style table and four chairs from which you can sit back and enjoy the woodland view. We also provide you with a private fire pit area for rustling up a delicious meal over a campfire, as well as one complimentary basket of wood for lighting this.

The 'Woolshack' wooden cabin provides guests with shower and toilet  facilities. There's also a baby changing facility as well as disabled access.  Electric points for hairdryers can also be found here. We also provide a communal, useful outdoor kitchen area with a fridge, microwave, and kettle. Next to this, you'll find the old 'sheep shed' which contains a woodburning fire, large table, books and bean bags for relaxing - it is ideal for communal gathering and/or eating undercover.

Children can enjoy woodland fun in our designated area where they can delight in den building or playing on the zip wire or rope swings.

As well as each tent having their own fire pit, you will discover a fabulous central firepit area surrounded by log benches - here you can catch up with other campers (if you'd like to) or simply enjoy sitting under trees to admire the beautiful star-lit sky and relax around the campfire.

The Owner Says

Get Lost In Nature is a brand new site offering fancy camping within an idyllic, private woodland. It is set on a working family farm, nestled within the beautiful, rolling Leicestershire countryside. The stunning 400-acre farm is run by former Leicester Tigers, England, and British Lion rugby player, Julian White. He is passionate about the natural environment in which he works and takes great pride in his prize-winning herd of South Devon cattle and large flock of sheep. Get Lost In Nature aims to work with the environment by providing sustainable, locally sourced fuel for campfires. The woodland is a source of natural beauty so it is continually preserved and managed by planting new trees and wildflowers. 
Get Lost In Nature is all about relaxing and unwinding in a picturesque natural environment. With only 5 luxury bell tents dotted throughout the woodland, guests can appreciate this haven of wildlife and immerse themselves in the simpler things in life. In the springtime, guests will be able to see lambs and newly-born calves frolicking in the fields, and as it's a working farm, they will also be able to see tractors and trailers, and in the autumn, combine harvesters, working in the neighbouring fields.
Guests can either chill out around the campfire enjoying local farm-reared produce or enjoy many of the attractions that Market Harborough (only a 10-minute drive away) and its surrounding areas have to offer. On our doorstep are plenty of local footpaths to enjoy strolling in the countryside, as well as several country pubs. The White Horse public house can be accessed by foot while the others are only a short drive away - perfect for you to enjoy rural relaxing!
