If you love all the fresh-air adventure and exploration of a safari, but don’t fancy the closeness of man-eating lions, a trip to Rusty Lane Safari Lodge (complete with hot tub for laid-back stargazing evenings) could be just the holiday you’re looking for!

Secluded amongst peaceful Wiltshire countryside, in a hilltop village close to bustling Devizes, Rusty Lane Safari Lodge sleeps up to four guests, making this an ideal family escape into nature.

Not that you’ll be ‘roughing it’ here. Filled with creature comforts, cheerful décor, and thoughtful attention to detail, the welcoming wooden lodge will soon feel like a much-loved home-from-home.

Even before you’ve stepped inside, you’ll want to hang out in the sociable, sheltered al fresco seating area, with its comfy chairs, bar-style seating, and a handy hatch into the kitchen.

When you do head indoors, you’ll note the gorgeous wood-burner in the heart of the Lodge, along with the plush sofa adorned with butter-soft cushions and throws. Just the thing, after a long day of rambling in the countryside.

There’s an indoor dining area if the weather decides to take a turn for the worse, and a well-equipped kitchen with a full-sized fridge-freezer, hob and toaster… not to mention that all-important electric kettle.

Bedroom-wise, there’s a double and a twin to choose from, with yet more throws and snuggly blankets to help you drift off into a warm, dreamy night’s sleep.
