Kentfield Country Estate, Kent
Mini Safari Tent
This beautiful private working farm estate sits in the heart of the lush Kent countryside on the edge of the North Downs. Their ethos is to farm in a sympathetic way harmonising with nature to produce high quality produce. With equestrian facilities and a stunning 4 acre lake the estate is a perfect location for all manner of events from weddings to intimate exclusive gatherings and even film shoots too.
Owner Ian Barwick came to meet us at The Game Fair, Ragley Hall in the summer of 2021 where we were exhibiting a twin porch Mini Safari Tent … the interior size is 5m x 6m with each porch an additional 2.25m. Ian was very keen to add a safari tent to his estate as a flexible space available for glamping accommodation overlooking the picturesque lake but also with the option to use the safari tent for smaller intimate events.
It was great to work with Ian and he recently wrote about the experience … “We met Michelle & Mike of Bond Fabrications at the Game Fair they were amazingly helpful in allowing us to ask load of questions about whether a safari tent could work for our wedding venue.
We placed our order for the safari tent with a few special requests such as internal walls and partitions that gave us total flexibility in what we needed for weddings, dressing rooms and bedrooms, or to use the tent as a front and back bedroom.
Their team came and installed the safari tent onto our decking and whilst we actually had snow on the day of instillation, we all cracked on and got the job finished.
A thoroughly committed, dedicated and well run family business.”
Since we manufacture all of our structures at our Gloucestershire factory, making changes and adding elements to provide a more custom safari tent is never a problem, in fact its what we do best. In chatting with Ian and understanding how this new safari tent would fit into his business we were able to design something that would give him flexible use of the space.
