A tiny family-friendly bell tent glamping site on a smallholding in south-west France

Ever daydreamed of upping sticks and moving to rural France to live the simple life? Who hasn’t? The fields are bigger, the sun shines brighter, the croissants are fresher and the villages are oh-so rustic. Becky and Andrew Brown are two Brits who’ve made the move; swapping London for a smallholding in southwest France where they tend chickens, ducks and their own little brood. But, luckily for anyone wanting a taste of “la vie simple”, they are not just living the dream, they are willing to share it.

Wild Oak Wood Glamping is the latest addition to Becky and Andrew’s smallholding. It consists of just four bell tents tucked among the trees of their little woodland. Each is a spacious six metres and has been kitted out as a sleeping and living space for four – with room for an extra little one or two. It’s definitely been put together with families in mind and the on-site swimming pool, children’s play area and regular craft sessions will help keep kids amused.

Bell tent campers share cooking facilities which include a gas camping stove, a barbecue and a fire pit outside which, added to the homely feel of the place, makes for a sociable atmosphere. While it works well for individual bookings, it’s even better for families who want to holiday together and exclusive hire of the site is an option.

Wild Oak Wood is on the outskirts of a tiny village called Loze, where you won’t find much going on aside from the odd tractor passing by. It’s a place you can switch off, slow down and relax in; where sightseeing consists of exploring rural villages and perhaps popping to see a chateau. Thankfully, freshly-baked baguettes and croissants are provided daily as part of the deal at Wild Oak Wood, so come with a few basics and you won’t need to leave — except, perhaps, to stock up on fresh produce from one of the markets that rural France is famous for. The day of the week will depend on which direction you’ll need to head in to find one but you can rest assured that down here, where the sun shines brighter, the cheese will be riper, the tomatoes will be juicier and the peaches will be sweeter. The simple life par excellence.

Details

Facilities

We have two 6m bell tents available to stay in. Each tent has the ability to host one double bed and two singles (with the possibility of an additional mattress on the floor or cot for a child.) All linen is provided. A welcome basket and daily baguettes and croissants are included in the price. Cooking facilities (a camping gas hob) and communal toilets and showers are on site. The pool is available for guests to use throughout the season. The Barn is a communal indoor space where guests can hang out and have access to games, books, children's toys, tea and coffee making facilities. Free wifi and charging points are available in communal spaces. There is no electricity in the tents, lanterns and torches are provided. There are animals on site and we currently have a dog and cat (who may wander over to say hello) as well as chickens and ducks who are fenced in.

Suitable For

Suited for families with children. No pets allowed.

Nearby

A car will be needed during your stay as Loze is a quite French village with no local amenities. The nearest villages are 10 minutes drive where you will find weekly markets, shops, bars, restaurants, bank and post office. There are many activites available through the summer months including canoeing, horseriding, wild swimming and cycling. Local villages host festivals, vide greniers (car boots) and brocantes (antique fairs) and there is a fresh produch market to be found everyday of the week. There are some stunning local chateaus such as the the Fortress Royale in the stunning hilltop village of Najac.

Food & Drink

There are many good local restaurants to suit a variety of budgets. Our favourites include Auberge du Cros (Saillac) Forchettes et Cie (Parisot) Moulin de Varen (Varen) Mas de Monille (Loze) and Cotes Saveurs (Villefranche de Rouergue)

You can collect eggs from our chickens, swim in the pool, or swing in a hammock under the trees. Have a game of basketball or petanque while the kids play in the sandpit or jump on the trampoline.

With local seasonal markets and tourist attractions nearby, it's your choice to do as much or as little as you please!
