A home from home canvas-wrapped three bedroom colonial style tent. 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.
The tent is equipped for practical day-to-day comfort and furnished with a gracious, relaxed elegance. Solid decking floors run throughout the spacious interior, extending to the terrace at the front and a practical porch entrance to the rear.
The living area is open-plan with plenty of room for families and friends to enjoy the 'at home' parts of your holiday together. A solid, wood-burning stove is the lodge's warming heart. It makes for a cosy retreat from our seasonal chill. A sofa and array of casual seating circle a large coffee table. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine, or prepare for Monopoly mania or several strenuous sessions of snap.
dine IN comfort
You can sit up for breakfast and supper in the dining area. A pine table and high-backed chairs seat six with ease. From the practical selection of tableware and ornamental dressings in the kitchen, you can decide whether to lay the table for a simple family feast or add those touches of candle-lit elegance that make dinner the highlight of your day.
All the bedrooms are roomy and separated for privacy and comfort. The tent has one double; one twin and a bunk bed room. All beds are all in solid pine with comfortable mattresses and plush duvet sets throughout. The tent has ample room to lose holiday clutter and to hang, stack and drawer clothes and toiletries too.
your very OWN shower AND WC
The wooden door to the great outdoors here adds to your privacy because this is also where you'll find the shower and WC. The shower runs off an independent hot water system and the spray can be altered to suit with its adjustable head. Both 'rooms' are plumbed in, to drain and flush away from the standing.
NOW YOU’RE cooking
Home cooking takes on various forms. The kitchen has a butane hob for copious cups of tea - ideal for simple meals or a stir-fried treat. Simmer an all-in casserole on the hob of the wood burning stove or warm up a curry carry out inside.
step into THE outdoors
Zip yourself out of the dining area and into the practical nerve centre of your Colonial canvas hideaway. Here, there is room for all those outdoor necessities – muddy wellies, dripping coats, sandy buckets and spades. The tents all have a hot tub which can be added for an extra charge of £75 for a 3 or 4 night stay, or £120 for a week stay. Please add this on to your booking on the booking form. Please note, the charge will be £0 but the site manager will invoice you directly for the hot tub.
A 'Rural Retreats Complimentary Welcome Hamper' will not be included in a glamping booking.
