Kymani Kentwell Hall
Kymani was borne of a desire by its event-expert founders, to create memorable group glamping breaks that remove all the stress of planning, organising and preparing.
That way, your focus gets to stay firmly on the more important business of relaxing with your favourite people in comfort and luxury!
Open June and July 2021, Kymani Kentwell Hall comprises two spectacular group glamping sites for exclusive or smaller shared group hire, both set within the 1,000-acre estate of one of the most magnificent, moated Tudor houses in England.
Kiln Paddock is set within its very own circular field, with a magical woodland feel that inspires childlike enchantment (you may even find some ‘secret' seating spaces and the occasional hammock!) Meanwhile, Park Paddock offers stunning views of rolling countryside, out towards the historic village of Long Melford.
Both sites boast up to ten elegantly furnished bell tents, each sleeping up to four guests (with a site maximum of 40 guests). You'll also be supplied with generous facilities, including piping hot showers and flushing toilets...
...and if that wasn't enough, you can also get involved in a programme of on-site activities, from bushcraft and woodland walks, to sunrise yoga and art classes.
You'll also be served a delicious breakfast and dinner every day, whipped up from locally sourced ingredients by Kymani's on-site team of caterers. Oh, and how about arriving to a pre-stocked bar, packed with a chilled selection of everyone's favourite choices?
In case you were breaking out in a cold sweat at the thought of chasing people up for their preferences, don't worry! Kymani's clever Concierge app means everyone can pre-book activities, drinks, and favourite meals with ease.
With the finer details so expertly covered, you can simply relax in your spacious, six-metre tent, which comes equipped with everything from a comfy sofa and a wood-burner, to a hanging candelabra! There's also a handy powerpack unit with charging points, and a double bed plus two single beds with soft linen and comfy mattresses.
There's also a giant central tipi on site, gloriously equipped with a lounge, library, and games area, along with a banquet table for everybody to enjoy those tempting catered meals together.
If you find Kentwell Hall has given you a taste for history, you can explore the captivating site with a carefree stroll through the manicured gardens and moat house. You could also pay a visit to Melford Hall, a National Trust property once owned by the family of the children's author, Beatrix Potter.
Why not immerse yourself in the history of the area even more, by learning an ancient skill, like the intriguing-sounding ‘whittling'... otherwise known as creating art from wood?
However you choose to spend your time at Kymani Kentwell Hall, one thing's for certain: you'll be blissfully free to savour every last moment.
