The raised decking is an idyllic spot to enjoy a golden pot of coffee or afternoon tipple. Complete with comfy wooden loungers and blankets, you’ll want to stay here until the moon and stars appear. It overlooks the large meadow and rolling hills of the south Devon countryside. Its beautifully rural location is oh so special and it doesn’t stop there... Head down the steps to reach your very own bubbling hot tub alongside the sweet picnic bench and rustic firepit, perfect for alfresco cooking! As the sun dips beyond the hills and golden, pink hues fill the sky, Dart Safari becomes even more enchanting. Toast marshmallows with the little ones and once they’re asleep, slip into the dreamy hot tub for a romantic evening under the stars. Here, you will create magical memories that last a lifetime.
