General

Teal is one of 2 lakeside safari style tents located at a family run farm and fishery near Droitwich Spa in rural Worcestershire. The studio style accommodation sleeps 2 – 4 people in one super king size bed or 2 single beds plus a sofa bed. This peaceful setting has decking at the water’s edge providing a beautiful view for relaxing and easy access for fishing from the Pheasant Pool.

Inside you have an open plan living space complete with kitchen, lounge and bedroom areas. The compact kitchen comes complete with a hob, kettle and fridge and all your everyday essentials required for your stay. You are only a 2 minute walk away from the shower and toilet facilities but you do have the added benefit of an en-suite toilet at the rear of your tent. Bedding and towels are provided.

You are in a prime location for exploring everything that Worcestershire has to offer. The area is known for its outstanding natural beauty and pretty towns. Worcester City, The Malverns, Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham and The Cotswolds and are all within a 45-minute drive. If you wish to stay closer to home and enjoy everything that nature has to offer then bike hire is available or enjoy a gentle stroll to the local village for a leisurely lunch about ½ mile away. There is mature woodland surrounding the farm so there are walks and cycle routes of varying lengths which are suitable for all.

After your busy day return and relax on your decking area which is also under your safari canopy. There is a table for some al fresco dining straight from the barbeque. Perhaps have a glass of bubbly in your own private hot tub or for those autumnal evenings pop on a cosy jumper for the outdoor comfy seating and enjoy a bit of stargazing whilst toasting marshmallows over your fire pit. A stay here will reconnect you with nature as well as bring peace and tranquillity and you will return home feeling refreshed, recharged and revitalised.

Location Information

Located close to Worcester, The Cotswolds and Stratford upon Avon, there is so much to explore within a short drive .

Worcester has been officially named the happiest city in the UK several times in recent years. The Cathedral, riverside, historical sites, shops, eateries and watering holes all stand in close proximity, in a pretty and friendly city centre. Contemporary architecture gracefully combines with half-timbered buildings from it's medieval past. You'll find charming boutiques as well as popular high-street chains

Stratford-Upon-Avon is a medieval market town alongside the River Avon. Most well known as the birthplace of William Shakespeare and the place where he spent much of his life, there is a lot of history and culture to soak up.

The Cotswolds hardly need an introduction. A national treasure, made up of quintessentially English villages, fabulous market towns and stunning open countryside. Spanning five counties, each area has it's own beauty yet all with those defining Cotswold features: golden stone and rolling hills.
