Lower Keats Farm offers glamping in Safari Tents near Axminster in Devon. The beautifully appointed six large canvas lodges set in the Axe Valley adjacent to the River Axe and only 15 minutes drive from the Jurassic Coastline allow you to immerse yourself in a simpler way of life. Our lodges have their own kitchens and ensuite bathrooms, with hot running water, proper beds and wood burning stoves to keep you snug and warm. No cold midnight treks to the loos or cold showers here! We have thought of everything, including an additional two ring gas hob, for that early morning cuppa or cooking without the need to fire up the stove. All you will need to do is sit back and enjoy your stay.
Lower Keats Glamping is the ultimate destination for luxury camping. Lush green pastures and unadulterated night skies offer the chance to truly unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We hope we have created the perfect family or romantic getaway with coastal and country themed lodges with luxury indulgence with country charm. We are on the Devon, Somerset and Dorset borders, so the West Country really is your oyster.
