River Steam Holidays – Shropshire
Six cottages and lodges offering beautiful and comfortable accommodation, sleeping two to eight plus people. All are equipped with TV and DVD players and all but one have internet access. Bed linen and towels are included as well as gas and electric.
The properties are situated just below the village of Highley nestled in the Severn valley between the river Severn and the Severn valley steam railway (30 yards from both). They all have beautiful clear views over the river and the valley. Perfect for people who want to get away from it all for some peace and quiet. With no main roads or industry any where near by.
All properties are family and dog-friendly.
Eagle Brae – North Scotland
We are confident Eagle Brae’s beautiful log cabins are unlike any other you may have seen or stayed in before.
Eagle Brae sleeps up to 26 guests across seven cabins. The maximum any one cabin can take is six. Spacious, yet cosy, the interior of each home is a work of art in itself. Log burning stoves, Scottish motifs, local artwork and period sporting paraphernalia blend with wooden furnishings carved in the Himalayas to create an ambience unlike any you may have experienced before.
Exton Park – Rutland
The rural hideaway has solid deck floors throughout a spacious interior, extending to the terrace at the front and a practical porch entrance, shower room and separate WC at the rear. The tent has an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room with a log burner at the heart.
The Exton Estate is a large rural estate located in the heart of picturesque Rutland, the smallest historic county in England. The Estate is within easy reach of Oakham, Stamford, Leicester, Peterborough and Nottingham. This beautiful 18th-Century park, which is Grade II listed, contains a sheltered five-acre walled garden which gradually slopes down to an ornamental lake at the southern end, where ospreys have been known to catch their dinner!
Sweffling Hall Farm – Suffolk
The rural hideaway has solid deck floors throughout a spacious interior, extending to the terrace at the front and a practical porch entrance, shower room and separate WC at the rear. The tent has an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room with a log burner at the heart. Each of the three bedrooms (one double, one twin and a bunk bed room) have solid wooden beds with comfy mattresses and warm duvets.
Sweffling Hall Farm lies in a rural triangle between Framlingham to its inland west, coastal Southwold to the north east and seaside Felixstowe to the south – Suffolk's own golden triangle of fun, adventure and charming discover. The Suffolk coastline offers a collection of uniquely beautiful places to see, delights to experience and things to do.
Kittisford Barton – Somerset
Kittisford Barton is set amongst the stunning scenery of Somerset, just half an hour west of Taunton. Though surrounded by unspoilt countryside, the site is just 10 minutes from junction 26 of the M5, making it easily accessible and well located for local amenities.
Lantern & Larks have chosen this secluded spot on the Somerset-Devon border as one that oozes peace and tranquility. With the Blackdown Hills AONB creating an incredible backdrop, Kittisford Barton is spoilt for choice when it comes to country walks and patchwork scenery.
Bleasdale Estate – Lancashire
Bleasdale Estate is situated on the Western edge of the Forest of Bowland AONB. Just 20 minutes South of Lancaster, the site is located at the end of a private country lane, set amongst the rolling green patchwork of grazing land stitched together by hedgerows, trees and dry stone walls, with the Bowland Fells as a perfect backdrop – a beautiful place at any time of year.
The site is situated above a private section of the River Brock. Build dams, catch sticklebacks, wander down the sleepy river banks and quiet pools in the dappled shade of the overhanging trees. Or build dens and camps in the wood behind the tents. It's a natural adventure playground for your kids.
