Treat the whole family to a holiday to remember at Lantern & Larks in Kittisford Barton – a luxury glamping experience based in glorious Wellington, Somerset.

Only half an hour from Taunton, Kittisford Barton is surrounded by the tranquillity of unspoilt countryside.  With the Blackdown Hills – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – as your backdrop, you’ll feel a world away from the bustle of life, despite only being ten minutes from Junction 26 of the M25.

This organic farm on the Somerset-Devon border is where you’ll find the luxury of Lantern & Larks’ beautiful tents.  Designed to accommodate six people with ease, each one is perfectly appointed to offer all the comforts of home, wrapped in canvas.  Solid decking floors throughout, elegantly furnished rooms and practical facilities at your disposal make this unlike any other tent you’ve ever stayed in.

The furnished front terrace opens into a spacious, open-plan living area, where the comfortable sofa offers enough space for everyone to relax, play games, or simply catch forty winks after a long day of fun.

The kitchen has everything you need for simple self-catering, including a butane hob, crockery, cutlery and utensils.  The wood burning stove in the living area can also be used for cooking delicious delights such as slow-cooked stews – a hearty treat for the hungry glamper!  In the dining area, elegant ornaments and candles create ambience as you dine around the large, pine table.

This is glamping, so there’s not a sleeping mat in sight in the three, spacious bedrooms! Instead, curl up in solid pine beds topped with comfy mattresses and cosy duvets.  You’ll find a king size bed in one bedroom, twin beds in the other, and bunk beds in the third room, as well as lots of space for all your bags and belongings.

A practical rear porch leads to the private WC and bathroom, both of which are plumbed in and drain away.  Say ‘goodbye’ to shared shower blocks, and ‘hello’ to a lovely, warm, private shower, complete with adjustable spray!

More information

Every tent also has its own fire pit, perfect for BBQs, toasting marshmallows, or simply keeping warm during a spot of stargazing.  For ease, order breakfast packs and BBQ packs loaded with tasty supplies or, for a special occasion, why not order a celebration pack, filled with wine, flowers and chocolates?

There’s no end of ways to fill your days during your stay at Kittisford Barton.  Explore the 260 acres of the farm, its ponds, woodlands, fields and trails.  Meet the friendly goats or perhaps collect eggs from the chickens in the orchard (don’t forget to say thank you!).

Beyond the farm, there’s the whole of Devon and Somerset at your disposal.  Take one of the many walking routes through the Blackdown Hills and keep an eye out for deer, or perhaps head down to the coast for miles of beaches, Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve, and fossil-hunting on the Jurassic Coast.  The area is also home to a wide range of tourist attractions – from Longleat Safari Park to Quad World – so it’s easy to please the whole family, whatever you decide to do!

For something a little more relaxed, take some time to explore the host of pretty villages nearby – best enjoyed with a glass of local cider in hand!  The cities of Taunton and Exeter are also well worth a visit for their great range of shops and restaurants, and offer a cosmopolitan alternative to the serenity of your campsite.

It really is impossible not to fall in love with this beautiful part of the country, but that love affair is all the more special when combined with a stay at Kittisford Barton.  From grandparents to grandchildren, everyone can enjoy this gorgeous location under canvas, thanks to the luxury you can only associate with Lantern & Larks.
