Safari tent in Herefordshire: Embrace slowing down in nature’s paradise at this enchanting glamping abode nestled along the bank of the River Wye. Where you can spend your days exploring wonderful Herefordshire before returning for some magical riverside dining.
Rewild and connect with nature at River Safari. Listen to the gentle babble of the River Wye flowing past your hidden retreat, as birds sing their morning melody… providing the most peaceful soundscape. Dine alfresco along the river bank before lighting the fire pit and getting cosy under the blankets until the stars twinkle above. Share stories, toast marshmallows or simply gaze up at the stars. Head inside your rustic abode to find a beautiful open plan living space, sumptuous double bed and sweet bunk beds for the little ones… the perfect family glamping getaway!
River Safari pays respect to a traditional style of glamping; one where you switch off from the outside world, share stories beside flickering flames, and spend quality time with the ones you love most. Wander across the bridge to reach your secluded retreat situated in a bow of the River Wye. Upon entering the hideaway, you’ll discover a sociable open plan living space complete with rustic wooden furnishings and all the necessities for your glamping getaway. The warming wood-burner will keep you nice and toasty on those cooler eves, and the comfy sofa is an inviting spot for an afternoon snooze! To the left, discover the sweet kitchen area, complete with a gas 2 ring hob, gas oven and fridge with ice-box. Here, you will love rustling up a family feast to be enjoyed at the lovely dining table. As the day draws to a close, younger guests can get snug in their bunk beds, closing the curtains to create a little den! The main bedroom is nestled to the back of the tent, complete with a gorgeous hand-crafted wooden bed. Drift off into a sweet slumber before waking to the sound of birdsong… bliss!
You’ll find a separate shower-room in the blue hut next to the tent. It‘s beautifully presented and provides the perfect spot to freshen up after a wild dip in the River Wye!
You will simply adore spending your days roaming the lush green garden area, taking trips through the orchard down to the river, beloved pooch in tow! Get lost in a good read in the dappled sunlight beneath the trees, listening to the gentle flow of the river. Play family games and make the most of spending some quality time together in nature’s paradise. Enjoy breakfast alfresco on the picnic bench beside the tent, or head down to the riverside on a balmy summer's eve and rustle up a feast over the firepit! There’s easy access for canoes and fishing available (at an additional cost). Toast marshmallow until your heart's content and stay snuggled beside flickering flames until the embers soften. Here, you will make magical memories that last a lifetime.
Spend quality time with your loved ones and embrace a digital detox at River Safari, as there is no WiFi available. It is totally off-grid, a real escape to the wild!
We wouldn’t blame you for wanting to spend your days at River Safari, going on woodland trails and foraging for goods. If you do decide to venture out there is also plenty to discover nearby. Herefordshire boasts a variety of wild landscapes…Canoe the River Wye, go on a countryside ramble or explore its winding country lanes by bike. For independent shops, delicious eateries and a whole load of history, head into the Cathedral city of Hereford. Settled on the River Wye, have a picnic by the water or marvel at the golden-stone Cathedral. Visit the Old Market for open-air shopping, dining and cinema or head to The Courtyard Hereford for theatre, comedy and art workshops. Hereford is also home to the Chained Library, the very last of its kind, which is definitely worth a visit!
Alternatively, head out of the city towards Breinton springs, this leads you through an apple orchard, where you can visit The Museum of Cider. Or why not stop at Monkland Cheese Dairy for a cheese tasting tour, pick up some delicious cheese, chutneys and local jams to later be enjoyed with a glass of your favourite! The National Trust house of Berrington Hall, The Weir Garden and Brobury House should also be added to your itinerary. Or pack up a picnic and make your way to the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the Brecon Beacons - both making for unforgettable day trips. The list is endless… you’ll want to return to River Safari time and time again!
