Daisy Meadow Safari Tents

UK England South West England Devon Cullompton

The Gardener's Nursery 2, Leonard Moor Cross, Uffculme, Devon EX15 3EX

Safari tent glamping in West Devon situated in the grounds of a family-run gardeners' nursery and easily accessible from the M5
Plenty of glamping site owners can boast a fine eye for detail but how many have safari tents with their very own flower boxes, always adorned with an eye-catching array of flowers and perennials? There are more than just daisies at Daisy Meadow Safari Tents. In fact, aside from the wooden flower boxes that sit at the foot of each south-facing deck, the safari tents also have potted plants inside and newly planted trees by their accompanying dishwashing area. There are floral touches everywhere.

Located on the grounds of a family-run nursery, it’s no real surprise that horticulture plays an aesthetic role here. And it seems green-fingered folk are a dab hand at running glamping sites too. Owners Tina and Paul Walters have lived here, running The Gardeners’ Nursery for four years, but only set up the two new safari tents in 2014. Inside, the tents have an open-plan style. A king-sized bed, Chesterfield sofa and wooden furnishings occupy the main living area, while a wood-burning stove adds some extra comfort. Linen, bedding and towels are all provided (each tent has its own heated shower room). On the deck there’s a fridge, crockery and a gas stove for cooking or boiling your morning cuppa. Not that there’s much demand. The nursery also conveniently has its own teashop, manned from Tuesdays to Sundays so you may well end up doing most of your eating there (or ordering it to eat back on your deck). A nibble of the home-baked cakes and scones is a must.

Perhaps one of the most convenient features of the campsite is its location. Just a couple of minutes by car from the M5 it has a secluded countryside feel that belies how easily accessible it really is. Hop on the motorway and you can be by Devon’s best beaches within 40 minutes or walking in the wilds of Dartmoor or Exmoor national parks. If you do opt for the beaches in summer, then make sure you check whether dogs are allowed first. Tina and Paul offer a pet-sitting service if your pooch isn’t allowed, while the local area also provides plenty of space for dog walking opportunities.

Uffculme is just down the road. On the banks of the River Culm, the village was a centre of the West Country’s wool trade during the 16th century and now has a speckling of pretty old redbrick factories to show for it. The canal tow-path makes for a pleasant walking route. Pop into The George pub (dogs allowed in the bar area) for a pint afterwards and then ponder on what plants you should buy for the final journey home. Some daisies, perhaps? The perfect way to remember your stay at this blooming marvellous Devonshire glampsite.

The Owner Says

An ideal retreat for a relaxing, peaceful holiday, close to villages and the valleys of both Exmoor and Dartmoor. Safari tent glamping in glorious Devon close to award-winning golden sand beaches with National Trust and heritage properties close by. Whether you are here for the walking, surfing, sightseeing or just a relaxing break at Daisy Meadows we have thought of everything to make your stay memorable. Situated on the site of The Gardeners Nursery in 2.5 acres of grounds.

Our luxury safari tents are surrounded by flowers, wildlife and nature. A family business we live on site and having stayed in Safari Tents, we fell in love with with glamping. Whilst we love the outdoors, bringing our dog and al fresco eating, we wanted a comfy bed and log stove to come home to. Here we feel the mix is just right, we can provide a doggy day crèche should you wish to bring your dog on holiday but want to spend the day shopping or go to a show and still come back at the end of the day to your happy hound.

We can even cook you a evening meal and leave it in your fridge to pop into your stove when you arrive home. Or leave local sausages, bacon and our own eggs for breakfast. The Gardeners Rest Tea Room sells eggs from our own hens homemade cake lovely tea and coffee in vintage cups, if you let us know the night before we can cook your breakfast or arrange a high tea, we also have fresh bread delivered daily and can supply a picnic hamper or fruit /vegetable basket for your stay.

Amazing tents!

We had the pleasure of staying at Daisy Meadow Safari Tents for my stepdad's birthday. We had both tents so had the place to ourselves which was ideal. The tents themselves were amazing and really cosy, the beds were super comfortable. We loved the location, the little cafe was fab and Tina was a great host and very helpful. Will be again!

Fantastic tranquil setting

Fantatic place to stay! Tents have all the essentials that you would need. The beds are extremely comfortable. Tina was very accommodating and helpful. We had rented both tents and thus had a very peaceful and private holiday. Definitely would recommend staying here. We will be back.

Thank you to Tina and Paul for another fantastic stay at Daisy Meadows. We booked the two tents for friends and ourselves after staying in the summer last year and we were not dissapointed. We were very lucky to have the first gloriously sunny weekend of the year which meant that we could make the most of the amazing outdoor space of the meadow. The tents are so cosy with lovely bedding and comfortable beds making for a great nights sleep. There is everything you need in the camping kitchen including some tea, coffee, milk, sugar, candles to start you off. We love the water heating stove in the bathroom. Tina and paul are so warm and welcoming and are able to provide meals etc at a reasonable cost. We would definately recommend Tina's yummy lasagne. We will be back again next year for sure.
