Enjoy Something New?
Why not make your next break a camping holiday with a difference at Carr’s Hill and come and stay in one of our Luxury Safari Tents? These beautiful tents offer all the fun and adventure of living in the great outdoors and sleeping under canvas without giving up those home comforts.
A Stay in the Country
What’s even better if that we are located in the heart of Scotland, midway between Falkirk and Stirling. We are just a short drive from a whole host of amazing attractions. Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Loch Lomond and St Andrews are all within easy driving distance too and are great for a family day out.
Because we’re in the country you can wake up every morning and breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the stunning views. At the same time you’ll still be close enough to civilisation to enjoy all that’s going on in the surrounding area. You can enjoy breakfast on the veranda (we can’t promise sun but it’s undercover so you won’t get wet if it’s raining!). And at night you can use the barbeque facilities and picnic benches for eating outside. On chillier nights, you can cook and eat indoors then relax in front of the log burner.
Families and Couples
Want to bring your family? No problem! If you are parents of young children they can play safely outdoors in an enclosed space. Watch them play whilst you relax and settle down for the evening with a nice glass of wine and enjoy the magnificent sunsets towards Ben Lomond and Ben Ledi. Plenty of older children enjoy their holidays at Carr’s Hill too. They can play games in the field or they might prefer to take a walk around the woods. Plean Country park is close enough for a walk there too. We also have lots of couples who come and stay at Carr’s Hill who are just looking to relax and unwind so there really is something for everyone.
Our visitors do come from near and far. Every year we have international visitors and we have welcomed people from Holland, France, Italy, Spain and other European countries too. From even further afield are those who’ve visited from India, South Africa and Australia. However, we’re also pleased to welcome local visitors from very close-by and many of our guests are from Stirling and Falkirk. So why not book a stay at Carr’s Hill even if you’re a local. You might live right on the doorstep but Carr’s Hill is the perfect place for you to enjoy a weekend with a difference!
What to Expect
We have two Safari Tents and they’re affectionately known as Hazel and Jennifer. They are truly a home from home but without the distractions of your usual daily lives.
Come and live luxuriously with the following ‘glamping’ home comforts:
- Private shower room with wc and wash basin
- Cosy log burning stove
- 2 sofas
- Hot and cold water
- Indoor cooking facilities
- Private decked veranda
- King size bedroom
- Triple bunk bedroom
- Outdoor veranda seating
- A shared fridge and microwave in the ‘bothy’ adjacent to the tents
Being ‘off grid’ means our tents have no mains power supply. You’ll find your way about at night using storm lanterns, solar lights, candles and torches. This creates a fantastic memorable experience for the children and a truly romantic atmosphere for couples who want to unwind.
Although the tents are off grid, we do have power points in the bothy which sits between the two tents. Therefore you can still charge mobile telephones and plug in the all important hair dryers and straighteners.
Our aim is to provide an ‘away from technology’ experience for families, allowing the art of conversation to be reinvigorated! Both tents have board games provided and we encourage relaxation, reading and enjoying the great outdoors for both children and adults alike.
Your escape to our Luxury Safari Tents will ensure a return to good old fashioned family values. The focus of your stay can be nature, the countryside and (most importantly) the real enjoyment of just being together. So whether you’re a family looking for a camping experience with a difference, or a couple looking for a peaceful getaway, our Luxury Safari Tents are waiting for you.
