Safari Tents

Our super Safari Tents are a fantastic way to get the benefits of camping in Cumbria, without having to compromise on comfort. Glamping is hugely popular and with these Safari Tents, you can see exactly why.

Set in a private woodland glade in our award-winning holiday park in the Lake District, these unique safari tents are fully self-sufficient with a built in deck. Sit out on the comfy furniture for al fresco drinks and dining. You’ll be placed in the lap of nature. Don’t be at all surprised to see deer casually wandering past, or red squirrels chasing each other up and down the trees next to your tent! Experience glamping in the Lake District like never before!

Luxury Glamping in The Lake District

Our spacious Safari Tents in Cumbria contain one double bedroom and a second bedroom with four adult sized single bunks. There is also a bathroom with shower, kitchen and dining area.
