Kymani The Grange
Determined to take the stress away from organising large, luxury group breaks, Kymani's co-founders have channelled their vast event-organising experience into creating the perfect glamping experience.
The Grange is a true paradise-like setting; a 600-acre landscape park dotted with whispering trees, a shimmering lake, and a stunning neo-classical mansion used for The Grange Festival, an annual celebration of opera held in the summer.
Open during June and July 2021, the Kymani site features up to ten elegantly furnished bell tents, each sleeping up to four guests (with a site maximum of 40 guests for exclusive hire, or small groups hiring two or more tents).
Your group will also enjoy generous facilities (including hot showers and ‘proper' toilets), and there's a programme of on-site activities on hand too, from art classes and horse riding, to bushcraft and foraging trips... whatever takes your fancy!
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?
Usually, if you're the one organising a group holiday, you're also lumbered with the unenviable task of chasing everyone up for menu and activity choices. But with Kymani's clever Concierge app, you can relax... as everyone can simply pre-book their activities, drinks, and favourite meals with ease.
There are plenty of bespoke options to help make your break even more special, too, including a spectacular wine tour of The Grange's vineyard - a fine excuse to sample some delicious English sparkling wine! You'll soon find that nothing is too much trouble... all you have to do is ask.
With the details so well covered, you can get on with relaxing in your spacious, six-metre tent, which comes equipped with everything from a squishy sofa and a wood-burner, to an opulent 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.
If you'd rather be sociable, your giant central tipi is gainfully equipped with a lounge, library, and games area, along with a banquet table for everybody to enjoy those delicious catered meals together in style.
While you may not want to move a muscle (and indeed, you won't have to!) the magnificent South Downs Way - a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - is only five minutes away by car... perfect for nature fans and lovers of long, breezy walks.
Meanwhile, culture vultures can visit Jane Austen's house, or take in the jaw-dropping Winchester Cathedral, and King Arthur's Round Table...
...before returning to your own lively banquet table, for a supreme sunset supper you didn't have to cook.
