Relax as the children play safely outdoors, then settle down for the night with a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful sunsets as you gaze towards Ben Lomond and Ben Ledi. Our two Safari Tents, known affectionately as Hazel and Jennifer, are truly home from home but without the distractions of home life. Each tent allows you to enjoy luxurious living and features the following comforts: Private shower room with wc and wash basin Cosy wood burning stove Hot and cold water Indoor cooking and washing up facilities Private decked veranda Outdoor seating and BBQ Large double bedroom Triple bunk bedroom Our tents are 'off grid' meaning they have no mains power supply and all lighting is by storm lanterns, solar lights, candles and torches - a fantastic way to create a memorable experience for the children and a truly romantic atmosphere for the adults once the children are safely tucked up in bed! Although the tents are off grid, there are power points provided in our Reception building a short distance away to charge mobile telephones and plug in the all important hair dryers and straighteners.... We also provide a large American style fridge/freezer within Reception for your perishable goods. We aim to provide an away from technology experience for families and to allow the art of conversation to be reinvigorated! Each tent has board games provided and we encourage relaxation, reading and running around for both children and adults alike. Our tents are located in the heart of Scotland, midway between Falkirk and Stirling and only a short drive from a whole host of amazing attractions. Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Loch Lomond and St Andrews are all within easy driving distance for a family day out. Your escape to our Safari Tents will ensure a return to good old fashioned family values where the focus is on nature, the countryside and (most importantly) the real enjoyment of being together. Our arrival and departure days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This provides flexibility and accommodates stays of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7 nights. For Monday and Wednesday arrivals, we request a minimum 2 night stay and for Friday arrivals we request a minimum 3 night stay. If a Friday/Saturday 2 night stay is your preference, we do ask that you book for 3 nights. You are then free to depart at any time on the Sunday, allowing you to enjoy a full weekend at Carr's Hill without the pressure of an early Sunday departure. Bed Linen - please bring your own bedding/sleeping bags. It is important to know that we only provide bed linen by prior arrangement. The cost of bed linen being provided is £15/person for the duration of your stay - payable in cash at the time of arrival. You may request led linen at any time up until the day before your arrival. Please note that you are required to bring your own towels.More
