  • The Exton Estate is a large rural estate located in the heart of picturesque Rutland, the smallest historic county in England. The Estate is within easy reach of Oakham, Stamford, Leicester, Peterborough and Nottingham.

    Lantern & Larks has established a campsite within the 500 hectares of Exton Park. This beautiful 18th-Century park, which is Grade II listed, contains a sheltered five-acre walled garden which gradually slopes down to an ornamental lake at the southern end, where ospreys have been known to catch their dinner!

    Your Lantern & Larks home from home is a canvas-wrapped three bedroom, and will sleep six in complete comfort. 

    The rural hideaway has solid deck floors throughout a spacious interior, extending to the terrace at the front and a practical porch entrance, shower room and separate WC at the rear.

    Your canvas retreat, its elegance, its practical features and chic finesse is just part of the Lantern & Larks experience. Each is situated in a peaceful corner of private land, making the most of the local flora, fauna, tranquillity and views. And each is at the heart of a glorious corner of England - ideal for a peaceful break or an action-packed family holiday.

    After a day exploring and enjoying the region, kick off the wellies, ditch the flip-flops, discard those buckets and spades and don your slippers. Will it be Monopoly mania or strenuous snap? Or a glass of wine and feet up with a Kindle-full of good reading?

    Gather the family around the fire pit. Do you know any campfire songs? No matter, after a full day out and about you'll have much to discuss and a few yarns to spin as you share the delicious flame-grilled barbeque of fine fresh local produce.

    As the night draws on, zip the children away to the private comfort of their own bedroom, toast the day well spent, then settle down to dreams of full tomorrows still to come.

     

  • Your Lantern & Larks home from home is a canvas-wrapped three bedroom rural hideaway, and will sleep six in complete comfort. 

    The tent is equipped for practical day-to-day comfort and furnished with a gracious, relaxed elegance. Solid decking floors run throughout the spacious interior, extending to the terrace at the front and a practical porch entrance to the rear.

    The living area is open-plan with plenty of room for families and friends to enjoy the 'at home' parts of your holiday together. A solid, wood-burning stove is the lodge's warming heart. It makes for a cosy retreat from our seasonal chill. A sofa and array of casual seating circle a large coffee table. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine, or prepare for Monopoly mania or several strenuous sessions of snap.

    You can sit up for breakfast and supper in the dining area. A pine table and high-backed chairs seat six with ease. From the practical selection of tableware and ornamental dressings in the kitchen, you can decide whether to lay the table for a simple family feast or add those touches of candle-lit elegance that make dinner the highlight of your day.

    All the bedrooms are roomy and separated for privacy and comfort. The tent has one double; one twin; and lovely bunked bed fun in the third for toddlers or teens. All beds are all in solid pine with comfortable mattresses and plush duvet sets throughout. The tent has ample room to lose holiday clutter and to hang, stack and drawer clothes and toiletries too.

    The wooden door to the great outdoors here adds to your privacy because this is also where you'll find the shower and WC. The shower runs off an independent hot water system and the spray can be altered to suit with its adjustable head. Both 'rooms' are plumbed in, to drain and flush away from the standing.

    Home cooking takes on various forms. The kitchen has a butane hob for copious cups of tea - ideal for simple meals or a stir-fried treat. Simmer an all-in casserole on the hob of the wood burning stove or warm up a curry carry out inside.

    Zip yourself out of the dining area and into the practical nerve centre of your Colonial canvas hideaway. Here, there is room for all those outdoor necessities – muddy wellies, dripping coats, sandy buckets and spades.

    Gather the family around the fire pit, on your decked terrace and get comfortable on the stylish cane outdoor sofa and armchairs, barbeque to your heart’s content with local produce cooked to taste on the intoxicating ballet of flames.
