Wilde Lodge, Powys
Unique custom designed 12m x 14m Safari Tent
Wilde Lodge owners Jemma & Kevin Willis approached Bond to talk about adding a structure that would give them a unique space for guests at their country house venue in stunning Mid Wales ... a big white marquee would not work! The structure needed to fit into a quirky space between characterful barns blending into the charming surroundings.
Jemma and Kevin spoke about the process, ‘We contacted Bond back in 2019 and were immediately impressed with their customer service. They came out to visit our site and listened to our business and ideas. We host various events at the lodge from small family gatherings to large scale weddings.’
It was great to work with Jemma & Kevin, the solution was a bespoke sized safari style structure with traditional features yet having the structural integrity of a permanent installation. CAD designs helped our clients visualise the structure and enabled them to be part of the overall design process. Natural wood poles and panoramic windows in the olive-green canvas gave it a subtle, welcoming façade that sits pleasantly alongside the beautiful barns.
A year on we spoke with Jemma and Kevin, ‘Every time someone walks into the tent, their reaction is always the same, ‘this is magical’. The tent is the best asset to grow and develop as a business. We are absolutely thrilled with it!’
