Awards, features and partners

Since opening we have caused quite a stir

Food Hygiene Rating of 5!

We have recently been inspected on our food provision by Environmental Health who give businesses a rating from 5 to 0 so you can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

We are  thrilled to have received the top rating of 5 – which means our hygiene standards are very good

The rating shows how well the business is doing overall, based on standards found at the time of inspection.


Good to Go – Visit England Award

We were so delighted to achieve the ‘Good to Go’ standard.  The programme, which is run in partnership with VisitScotland, Visit Wales and Tourism Northern Ireland, is for businesses across the sector to demonstrate that they are adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and check they have the required processes in place.  We had a spot inspection and passed with flying colours!

Muddy Goes Glamping Review

Once upon a time, you were either a camper, or not, it was that black and white. And if you were in the ‘most definitely not’ camp (s’cuse pun), it wasn’t always cool to admit it, because embracing the Great Outdoors and all of its quirks is something we Brits LOVE doing and have done for decades. But, let’s face it, those ‘quirks’ aren’t for everyone. Shower blocks with prehistoric-looking cobwebs and the odd daddy longlegs thrown in for good measure, just aren’t my thing. Nor is the sleeping bag, for that matter.

Country Mummy Review

It’s no secret that as a family we love glamping… it combines all of the fun of camping with the luxuries of a 5* hotel. All of the home comforts mean that bad weather doesn’t affect your break, & I don’t think you can find a much better way of experiencing the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.

We’re also Featured in Muddy’s Little Black Book and are also delighted to have now been awarded their Weekend Escapes Rosette!

Down on the farm, near the Jurassic Coast, we kipped under canvas at the luxury Lower Keats. Lower Keats Farm, just outside Axminster on the Devon/Dorset border is the home of Linda and Gary, who recently decided to open up one of their fields to glamping. Down a lane away from their farmhouse, you’ll find six safari tents in a bucolic and peaceful setting, nicely spaced from your neighbours if you’re anxious for peace and quiet, but equally close enough if you’re coming en masse.
