We have just returned from 2 nights at Up Sticks Glamping and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The tent is gorgeous and furnished beautifully, it's all very rustic but extremely cosy. The accomodation is set up as 2 main bedrooms, one of which is a double and the other can be made up into either a double or 2 singles. There is also a mezzanine level with 2 single beds which can be reached by a fixed ladder. There are two safari tents located at the site and there is ample parking for both. Even though the tents are relatively close together you don't feel as though you're disturbing one another which is nice.
The shower room is located a short walk from the tents in a separate cabin and each tent has a shower room for exclusive use with a toilet, sink and shower. The shower is powerful and there was enough hot water for everyone to shower without any issue. Everything was very clean and the towels that were provided were lovely and fluffy.
Although the accomodation itself is fantastic, it's the hosts Charlotte and Steve who really make the experience. Both were extremely friendly and welcoming and on hand with suggestions of things to do in the area. We arrived to a kitchen stocked with essentials but also cakes, jams, bread and a bottle of wine and there is a pantry onsite where you can buy more of whatever you need. We made use of the firepit to the left of the cabin to barbecue on our first night, and the food in the pub which is a 2 minute walk away was great and very affordable on Saturday night.
This was a real trip to the country complete with sheep, goats and chickens who are more than happy to be fed and stroked as well as a very friendly cat and dog. We absolutely loved the weekend and would recommend it to anyone looking for a weekend away in the country.
Thank you both so much for having us!
Upsticks was luxuriously appointed safari tents, with lots of unique touches. We arrived and were sitting on the deck with wine and nibbles in half an hour...effortless camping! It is a peaceful and bucolic setting, but also close to lovely villages and walks. The tent was spacious and comfortable. All the furnishings made it feel indulgent. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. We didn't want to leave!
what can I say it was perfect, safari tent was amazing, comfortable beds, our own private toilet and shower a short walk away. The hosts were lovely, very friendly dog named reggie. My nephews 11 year old twins loved it and cannot wait to go back. Hoping to return in the very near future.
