Luxury Camping and Glamping Equipment
Glamping: the perfect combination of countryside and comfort...
Nothing beats getting out and about, exploring great locations and romping through the stunning British countryside. Being able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the great outdoors, breathe fresh air and discover the local wildlife is a fantastic way to spend a relaxing break with family or friends. Only one thing gets in the way: the faff of DIY accommodation. Constructing tents in the dark, midnight wash-block runs, crawling out your front door each morning - sound familiar? Glamping is the perfect way to avoid folding chairs, numb bums and crouch-height camping stoves. It gives you the best of both worlds.
Lantern & Larks' sites provide all the luxury camping equipment you need for a simple, hassle-free, outdoors getaway. The tents are elegantly furnished, with utensils and cooking equipment all provided. Lantern & Larks truly ensures comfort under canvas; all three bedrooms are spacious and separate with solid pine beds (real mattresses, not airbeds!), duvets and sheets all included. The tents are floored throughout in solid wood, extending to a spacious front deck, and the soft sturdy walls give you a warm and peaceful night's sleep in any weather. There is running water, with a shower and toilet too - so no struggling into wellies for a loo dash in the early hours. You can stand and cook in a real kitchen, make use of the wood-burning stove, or even take things outside and enjoy a barbecue on the fire pit under the stars!
These Colonial-style tents have stylish, open-plan living rooms with sofas and armchairs, and lots of room for getting together.
Glamping is a great way to spend quality time with friends and family, and it makes exploring the outdoors fun and easy for any age.
Glamping Equipment List
Heating and cooking
All of our luxury tents have wood-burning stoves, making the living space warm and cosy but also fantastic for cooking, with both a hob top and an oven. Cooking on a wood-burning range does take a little longer than a conventional oven, and the temperature varies with the amount of wood and the speed of its burning, so be prepared for a little trial and error; but the results should be acceptable, and if not - well, you can always blame the oven. For quick meals and an early-morning cuppa as the stove heats up, we have supplied a twin gas hob. Each tent also features a fire pit to the front: great for heat when you want to be outdoors but there's a chill in the air, and you can also barbecue on them!
Glamping with pets
We do accept dogs on our sites, but there is a cleaning charge of £20 per dog for this. We do not allow dogs on furniture or bedding. Please ensure they are under control and on a lead at all times - you are in a livestock area and farmers will not be happy if their animals are disturbed.
There is no internet access provided on site. Our glamping sites are chosen for their character and remoteness, so phone signal and 3G may be pretty limited. You may need to be prepared to travel a little way to pick up a signal.
We have no electricity on site. Light is provided by candles and oil/battery lamps, and the wood-burning stove takes care of heating and cooking. Our sites have an honesty shop where you can charge the batteries for the lamps, and also your phones.
Every tent has a flushing loo - so no need for a dark-and-dirty dash across the camp site! Each tent also has its own gas-powered hot-water shower.
To preserve the idyllic character of the landscape, we do not allow vehicles on site. But a fleet of wheelbarrows is available for you to quickly and easily transport your luggage from the nearby car park to your tent.
