… is incredibly spacious and comfortable. The interior is a reminder of the honest country-life of times gone by.
The Feather Down tent is equipped for up to 6 people (maximum 5 adults and 1 child up to 12 years). You will find: glasses, cups, mugs, plates, cutlery, kitchen knives, chopping-boards, scissors, a coffee grinder, pans, cooking and baking equipment and serving spoons. You do not have to take anything from home – it’s all there.
Prices start from £60 per person for a long weekend – and you can even add ‘treats’ such as a private hot tub or rustic shower next to your tent.

Lochhouses Farm, near Edinburgh, East Lothian
The tents at Lochhouses are beautifully kitted out spaces – a roomy living area, a wood-burning stove with an oven, Belfast sinks with hot and cold running water and real beds keep you in simple comfort. The soft wood, boat-shaped shelving and the colours carry the beach feel right into the tents themselves.
Staying at Lochhouses is the perfect blend of summer beach house life, farm holiday and countryside escape. If you’re feeling active, you can walk and cycle in the woods and wetlands inland or round the lochs, ride horses on the beach or help out on the farm. If you’re not then do nothing more than move between bed and the sea.
