Holistic safari tent glamping with hot tubs and massage therapies, set at the foot of the Malvern Hills

You might be familiar with Castlemorton Common for its infamous reputation as the setting for a week-long rave to end all raves in the 90s. While the spirit of the party lives on in the tales of the locals (not all good), you won’t hear a rumble of jungle at this site. The rowdiest gathering here is probably the migrating swallows, who take to the sky at sunset to perform hypnotic murmurations. You can’t always guarantee their performance during your stay, of course, nor the perma-pink sunset over Swinyard Hill. But you can definitely count on Denise and Ben’s warm hospitality and a sense of calm inside one of their 1920s-inspired safari tents.

Nestled off a country lane at the foot of the Malvern Hills, Clarks Farm is an inconspicuous spot. The two sole tents are equally spaced to allow for solitary hot tub time and, while one vista promises the rolling hills, the other looks out onto a wild meadow in full bloom. Onsite you’ll find ample space and a nature hide-out for kids, with dens created from young willows and the opportunity to do a bit of pond dipping in a safe and enclosed area. Getting into nature is a huge part of the Swallowfields' appeal; you only need to take a 5 minute walk to reach the edge of Castlemorton Common, which leads, in turn, to the mighty Malverns for a more strenuous (up-hill) hike.

You might be tricked into thinking you’re in the Serengeti once you’re zipped up in one of these roomy canvas tents. They comfortably house six adults and two dogs. The list of luxuries inside is expansive but it’s the above-and-beyond extras, like the six-seater electric hot tub or the cocktail bar complete with a shaker and crystal glasses, that really show Ben and Denise's understanding of a glamper's needs. Inside, there's a wood-burning stove and, outside, a fire pit that doubles as a BBQ (the on-site shop has meat at the ready). For families, meanwhile, the little fence around each tent provides peace of mind that dogs can't run far and children are vaguely where they say they are.

A big part of the Swallowfields offering is the spa experience. You can book in for a bespoke beauty treatment or a massage in your tent, topped off by an evening in the hot tub. The option of a private yoga class also sounds like a good idea, and sensible after an afternoon hiking up to Eastnor Obelisk, which offers one of the best panoramas over The Malvern Hills. Though so too does a brief pint in the pub – the Plume of Feathers and the Robin Hood are both within a five-minute walk of your tent. If you fancy a day of sightseeing, meanwhile, it's a 15-minute drive to the quaint town of Great Malvern, home to an 11th-century monastery and thought to be an area that inspired literary greats, including J.R Tolkien or C.S Lewis. Whether you’re writing the next great novel or just a postcard to a friend, it all makes for a great setting to sit back, relax and embrace the British summertime with the swallows.

It's been in our family since the 1920s,  purchased by Great Grandparents, Ernest and Lizzie Wadley. From the 3-acre wildflower orchard meadow and the flight of swallows that visit every year to buzzing bees and sound of sheep in the nearby fields, we are passionate about every square inch of the wildlife and countryside that surrounds our home, so much so, we want to share it with you.

Peaceful luxury. Glamping at it's best.

We visited Swallowfields in July as a family of three including our 4 year old daughter. Wow. Not sure how many times we used that word whilst staying at Swallowfields. From the moment we arrived we knew we had found somewhere special. A warm welcome from Denise and Ben and a tour of the very classy safari tent started the holiday off in a great way. The setting is lovely. A large, fenced private area is yours to enjoy and besides the safari tent included a hammock, hot tub, seats and the fire pit. We found ourselves using the fire pit as much as the weather would allow providing a great way to ensure we spent as much time outside as we could. The site is filled with wildflowers and grasses which only added to the safari feel of staying in amongst open grassland. The veranda area was the next best place to be eating when the weather turned. Still outside and enjoying the view but protected from the weather. Inside the tent was decorated in a very classy way definitely invoking the feel of 1920s glamour. The abundance of games and books provided were great and much used. Overall this glamping site is exactly what you're after for if you're looking for luxury glamping with a safari 1920s feel. Everything had been thought of and we found ourselves wanting for nothing. The kitchen also included a dishwasher and coffee maker. On site there was a small shop which stocked a great selection of local provisions. If you wanted to you could just turn up with no plans for food and drink etc and be completely self sufficient without leaving. We did head out locally and the area is wonderful. However there was never a feeling of disappointment as the days drew to an end as we knew we were heading back to such a beautiful place. I know this review has been nothing but glowing but seriously, I have given a 100% accurate account of how wonderful our break away was. So good infact that we had already booked to come again before we'd even been there 48hours!
