Our tents contain a queen bed and house two guests comfortably. However, we welcome up to four guests if you are happy to sleep the additional people on a thin mattress on the floor.

“As you arrive to the Tent on the hill you will be taken by the view from your lookout. Whether you are sitting on the benches by the fire or laying on the bed looking out into the valley in front of you the location is that of wonder. We loved our stay here even if it was only for the one night and we will be returning in the cooler months. The tent is a very warm and inviting space and a perfect place to go for a simple retreat from the every day hustle and bustle. Book here you will not regret it.”
