Safari Tent Stay

Welcome to Nature's Nest

For family and group escapes –the ultimate luxury glamping experience – Natures Nest boasts 4 beautiful canvas cottages that melt into the glorious Herefordshire countryside. These self-catering glamping accommodations are nestled on a natural spacious site with uninterrupted views over the rolling countryside, and river wye in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

All canvas cottages are serviced with locally produced renewable energy, hot and cold running water, site-wide Wi-Fi, and the heat from a classic style wood burning stove. The tents are fully equipped for up to 6 people with group bookings catering for up to 24 people, on request only.

Swap the rush of daily life for the peace and tranquillity of nature without forgoing home comforts and luxuries. Read that book at last, play cards or board games, spend time together by the fire. Relax and indulge in the stunning far-reaching views, peace, and starry nights from the decking or your own hot tub. Walk along, go for a paddle or even a wild swim in the River Wye. Listen to a soundtrack of rustling leaves in the breeze, birdsong, children’s laughter, and the crackling of logs on the fire. Treat yourself to local produce and award-winning local hospitality. Forget time in this stylish accommodation, a holiday that marries simplicity with style. A great holiday for all!
