The Owners Richard & Elisa Bostock. have this to say:-

‘We are a glamping business within a family farm based in Hintlesham, Suffolk.

We opened our site in 2019 and have since run bookings directly via our website as well as via the glamping industry acclaimed Canopy & Stars. 

The site itself is based in an arboretum within a quiet woodland. We currently run four luxury safari tents for holiday accommodation with weekly and weekend bookings available. The four tents are set around a 3 tiered lake and the site itself is enclosed but next door to farmland and a golf course. 

We have since had coverage in both local and national newspapers and style magazines. We have appeared online for O2 as part of their ‘GO spontaneous’ week & O2 Priority campaign. We were the location for the social media and influencer event and aired on BBC1 last year as a location for the TV show ‘Shop Well for the Planet’. Our site has been reasonably exclusive since opening and therefore attracting creatives from the music and fashion industries as well as celebrities who book stays with us as a peaceful break from their busy lives with full anonymity. Staff have enjoyed getting involved with helping us to prepare for such events and clients. Our demographic is mainly working families from London as well as young couples’
