We are pleased to announce the opening of this unique Glamping site in Snowdonia.

We have recently installed six newly designed Glamping lodges for this site.

There were a number of challenges due to the extreme location.  So our team set about designing a lodge that could be located in this area, the Rwenzori mountain lodge was born.

The design is based on an integrated steel deck which bolts down onto a concrete pad and the lodge support frame is locked into the deck, then the dividing walls for bedroom, bathroom, and living area are dropped in to meet the frame structure.

Whether you are enjoying one of the longest zip wire thrills in Europe or exploring theunique Slate Caverns, mountain biking or climbing you can now base yourselves at this thrilling stunning location.

VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2017 have named The Dandelion Hideaway as the Winner and Longlands as a Finalist in the brand new Glamping category.  Both sites have Tsavo safari tents from Somerset glamping equipment manufacturer, Albion Canvas with stylish interiors including wood burning stoves, en suite bathroom, a large living and dining area and two bedrooms.

MD, Steve Hansford, commented, “The Dandelion Hideaway and Longlands were amongst our first clients, so we are thrilled that they have received such a prestigious award. The trend for this idyllic escape from the high tech world has really taken off and we are currently setting up sites from the Isle of Wight to Scotland. It is great that VisitEngland have officially recognised this unique holiday and the word, a blend of Glamorous and Camping,  has even made the Oxford Dictionary*. ”

Boldscan originally set up in 1990 to create canvas vehicle covers. They were quick to spot the potential for Glamping, devising a range of high quality tents; from safari style, to bell and futuristic geodesic domes manufactured in Wellington, Somerset. The first clients were mostly farmers looking to diversify, but they have also set up sites at holiday parks and zoos, including The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and Chessington World of Adventures Resort. In addition, a unique clear span (ie no poles) canvas Clubhouse has provided the solution for cafes at chic galleries like Hauser & Wirth and award winning cheese makers, Quickes.

In addition to advising on planning permission, green finance, supplying and fitting out the tents with kitchens, wood burning stoves and even en-suite bathrooms, the company offers an after sales maintenance programme.

National Glamping Award

17/11/2016 22:11



Durrell Wildlife Camp is delighted to be the winner of the inaugural AA Glamping
Site of the Year award.
Introduced by the AA for the first time this year, the award celebrates the ever
increasing popularity of glamping in the UK. The AA remarked that “Durrell
Wildlife Camp offers quality accommodation, excellent customer service and a
unique holiday experience and is a worthy winner of the AA’s first Glamping
Ashley Mullins, Accommodation Manager at Durrell commented:
“It’s a huge honour to have been chosen for this award, especially with so many
luxury glamping experiences on offer in the UK. Durrell really does offer
something unique. We pride ourselves on our customer service and this
combined with our safari style setting within the zoo and our extremely
comfortable and exclusively designed ‘pods’ makes a stay at the Durrell Wildlife
Camp an unforgettable experience”



Durrell’s Chief Executive Officer,  Dr  Lesley  Dickie spoke about what the award
meant to Durrell:
“It’s a tremendous achievement for Durrell to have been awarded this accolade
and I am so proud of the team for all their hard work over the past four years. Our
commercial offering at the zoo is hugely important; every pound spent at Durrell
goes directly to supporting our mission of saving species from extinction. Our
guests at the Wildlife Camp play a vital part by enabling us to work with some of
the world’s most vulnerable species and most threatened habitats.”

The Wildlife Camp opened in 2012 and is situated in landscaped grasslands
overlooking Lemur Lake, with 12 spacious pods available, each named after a
species of lemur. Each pod or geodesic dome is positioned with views into the
Wildlife Park.

Pods accommodate up to two adults and two children, with the option for children
to stay in separate “tepees” to have their own adventure. Two of the pods are
fully accessible for disabled guests.

Equipped with all the necessary creature comforts, the Pod’s features include a
luxury double bed, cosy wood burning stove, personal open sun deck, private
toilet and shower facilities, kitchen and, perhaps most importantly, the unique
charm that comes from the beautiful surroundings and sounds of the Wildlife
In addition, “Lemur Lodge”, within the camp, provides an area for socializing and
a communal barbeque or guests can also take a short walk to one of the two on-
site restaurants.



The  camp package includes free Wi-Fi and unlimited free entry into the Wildlife
Park itself. Additional experiences available include dusk tours, hosted by
Durrell’s conservation experts and unique “behind the scenes” animal
The pods can also be hired for group bookings, such as weddings, birthday
parties or corporate events.

Longlands luxury safari lodges in North Devon, has been named as Glamping Business of the Year at the Devon Tourism Awards 2016. Glamping is a new category for the 2016 awards which are run by Visit Devon, and the ceremony took place at The University of Exeter on Thursday 10th November 2016.


We are so delighted that our hard work over the past five years has been recognised,” says Bella Given, owner of Longlands which lies in the North Devon AONB and overlooks the coast. “The entire Longlands team has put their hearts and souls into making it a success, so it is wonderful to celebrate with them tonight. This accolade is all the more special because it is the first competition we have ever entered. It’s brilliant that glamping is a standalone category for the first time because it is a totally different experience to staying in self-catering accommodation, and one that is increasing in popularity every year.”


Longlands offers five six-person luxury safari lodges that are available for weekend, mid-week or full week stays from mid-March to the end of October. Bella has seen a big increase in demand for glamping holidays since opening in 2011 particularly from those in the South West: “Last year, almost 20% of our bookings came from those staying in the Southwest, almost three times the number from the previous year. It’s wonderful that more people are choosing to stay closer to home to make the most of beautiful places right here on our doorstep in the Westcountry. Some of our customers come from Exeter and Plymouth, others from as near as Bideford and Barnstaple and one family from just ten minutes down the road!”


Bella explains that coming to Longlands on the edge of Exmoor is an escape: “We are cocooned in a secluded valley, just a couple of miles from the sea, so although some people only drive a short distance to get here, mentally we are a million miles away from the strains and stresses of everyday life.” She offers the Longlands Larder menu so that guests can enjoy home-cooked meals in their lodges and the pantry shop is fit to burst with five-star gourmet treats from mini cheese truckles to artisan chocolate and local ales.


Longlands provides luxurious camping under canvas with a sense of adventure: “We go to enormous lengths to put ourselves in the shoes of families, couples and groups of friends who might stay here so that we can tailor the menus, safari lodges and bespoke adventure books to their specific needs,” explains Bella who lives onsite in the Longlands farmhouse with her husband, two children and dachshunds, Mimi & Honey.


As Devon winner of the glamping category, Longlands now qualifies as a finalist in the South West Tourism Awards in February 2017.

Knowsley Safari park have ordered their first 6m x12m Clubhouse for use as a catering and viewing stop inside the animal park. It is being built on a high platform so people can have a panoramic view the animals. There will also be a smaller 6mx6m curved roof catering unit. The 6x12m clubhouse is being trialled with a view to adding two further units.

Richard Smith, Head of Visitor Attractions at Knowsley commented, “We selected Boldscan’s Clubhouse because it offered value for money, speed of construction and authenticity. The “out of Africa” design fitted perfectly with our Safari style.”

Albion Canvas Co developed the Clubhouse as an extension of their most popular Safari Tent. It is available in 6m, 9m and 12m spans to any length in 3m bays as standard, bespoke sizes are also available for example 8m span.

The concept grew out of talking to customers who wanted a unique design for festivals, weddings, cafes and bars, with a clear span structure, rather than traditional marquees with centre poles, but with a more rustic look.

Amboseli at Haven

05/04/2013 20:21

Haven, Perran Sands, Cornwall have just taken delivery of their first Amboseli Safari Tents and added three more Geodesic Domes for the 2013 season.

The Amboseli has been designed as small Safari style tent to sleep up to 5 in two bedrooms, with a front living area.

It is a true pole tent with a separate green PCV flysheet and complete canvas inner tent.  This means the tent stays warm in the colder weather and cooler in the warm weather.  The inner tent is completely protected by the flysheet extending its life and giving you the option for 12 months use.

Available in 3 colours, sand, off white or olive green, although the standard colours are olive green flysheet with sand inner tent.  All the canvas is proofed to British and European standards for water resistance rot inhibition and fire retardants.

The front ‘flying canopy’ is a separate section so it will spill strong incoming winds, but has been designed so that it won’t ‘flutter’ on the back edge when wind passes through.

The frame is traditional redwood sectioned poles tensioned out using simple webbing and cam lock guys and steel marquee stakes, making the whole structure extremely strong and weather resistant.  The poles are finished in an exterior grade 2 part environmentally friendly coating for maximum life.

Durrell Wildlife Park

27/04/2012 06:13

Albion Canvas are pleased to announce a major order from Durrell Wildlife Park in Jersey, founded by Gerald "Gerry" Malcolm Durrell, OBE a naturalist, zookeeper, conservationist, author and television presenter. He founded what is now called the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and the Jersey Zoo (now renamed Durrell Wildlife) on the Channel Island of Jersey in 1958, but is perhaps best remembered for writing a number of books based on his life as an animal collector and enthusiast. He was the youngest brother of the novelist Lawrence Durrell. Durrell founded the Jersey Zoological Park in 1958 to house his growing collection of animals. The site for the zoo, a 16th century manor house, Les Augres Manor, came to Durrell's notice by chance after a long and unsuccessful search for a suitable site. Durrell leased the manor and set up his zoo on the redesigned manor grounds. In the same year, Durrell undertook another, more successful expedition to South America to collect endangered species. The zoo was opened to the public in 1959 on the 26th of March.    

The zoo is located at Les Augrès Manor, Trinity, Jersey, 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Saint Helier.

The zoo is situated in 31 acres (130,000 m2) of landscaped parkland and water-gardens. It has a strong commitment to looking after the Island’s native wildlife, and large areas within the grounds have been designated native habitat areas. The extensive planting of flowering and fruiting trees throughout the grounds also serves to attract a plethora of wild birds and insects. Included in the former are several species of bird which used to be commonly seen in Island gardens but have become increasingly scarce, including the house sparrow and song thrush.

There are over 50 nest-boxes positioned around the grounds, which are used by a variety of birds including barn owls, kestrels, swallows and martins. Other animals which are commonly seen within the grounds are the red squirrel, bank vole, and the short-toed tree creeper, which is not found in the UK.

Initially there will be 12 Ecopod sites (2 suitable for disabled visitors) enabling you to stay at this extraordinary venue and Safari style club house opening in June 2012.

Attached are visuals for you to look at.

The New Geodesic Domes

21/03/2012 01:44

For cool, fun, contemporary living, the new Geodesic Domes at Perren Sands, manufactured in the UK by Albion Canvas, blend into the landscape whilst the large clear panels afford stunning views of the parkland.  Inside the living is easy, with three interconnecting domes offering flexible living space. The largest dome measures 5.5m and the two smaller ones measure 3m, providing ample space for sofas and beds and a blank canvas for budding interior designers.


Domes are made and finished to the highest standards using a strong aluminium frame, with stress points having double and triple reinforcement where necessary and all seams sewn with a French seam for strength and superior water exclusion.  The canvas is a 393gsm (12oz) cotton canvas, treated with a water repellent, rot inhibitor and fire retardant as standard.

The Glamping (glamorous camping) trend continues to grow and is proving a lucrative option for farmers looking to diversify. Whether they have a small farm or a large estate, there may be space in a paddock or woodland for one or even several safari style canvas lodges.

Last Summer Halfords conducted a study which revealed that 50 per cent of families planned to camp, hot on the heels of the trend to Staycation, rather than go abroad. People seem to have rediscovered the joys of a UK holiday spent outdoors, as long as they have their home comforts, along with a chance to swap the high tech life for a simpler one.

Amanda Norman, moved away from the 120 acre East Sussex family farm, specialising in rare breeds, in her early twenties to work in IT in London. By the time she was married with two children, her parents were looking to retire. They needed to sell Dernwood Farm to realise capital so they invited Amanda and Tim to buy into the business in order to save the farm.  Amanda tried to find ways to improve profitability. “We tried farmer’s markets, adopting a piglet and would have showcased wooden play structures (but the council did not give permission) before finally hitting on camping four years ago. This has been a huge success and we were thrilled to be voted one of the top 10 campsites by the camper’s luxury guidebook – Cool Camping.”  

Dernwood Farm now offers a camping to Glamping experience to suit everyone.  Initially starting with “wild camping” which simply required the pitches (and a shovel), which is still proving very popular. The following year they added the bell tent, which had been used for her sister’s honeymoon, to the website and got a great response. Two more bell tents with wood burning stoves, eco showers and loos were added last year. Now the first luxury safari style lodge from Albion Canvas is on order and will be ready for Spring – half of August is already booked. Albion will set up the three bedroom lodge, including installing the wood burning stove with cooker, in an 8 acre sunny glade.

Getting planning permission included commissioning a general biodiversity survey.  Dernwood Farm has 70 acres of ancient coppiced woodland, which in addition to providing an idyllic setting for the camping, has also helped with planning permission. The forestry commission woodland management plan concluded that rotating the position of the tents will help to reintroduce the traditional coppicing that started in the 1600’s to fuel the iron ore industry there.

Amanda would like to have applied for a grant, but found the process was going to delay the launch, so pressed ahead by leasing one safari style tent over three years through Green Technologies, adding an extra £3,000 to the capital outlay. Fuelled by the success of the first lodge, she hopes to get a grant to add two more of these luxury lodges next year.   She hopes that she will be able to manage the change overs with just some part time help in high season.  By installing some excellent software (her previous career in IT coming in useful), bookings are no longer labour intensive and the 50% deposit has helped with cash flow. Whilst Glamping sites were keen to have Dernwood on their sites, Amanda preferred to keep complete control over bookings and not give away hefty commissions.

In Hampshire, Jack Tyrwhitt-Drake runs Cedar Valley Glamping on the family’s 2,500 acre Bereleigh estate in the South Downs National Park. After one successful season with just one tent, he has ordered three more.  The safari style lodges will be located in 5 acres of woodland with stunning views of sunsets.  To date guests have included corporate clients, plus hen and stag parties, attracted by the outdoor activities including the estate’s own shoot.  Jack shares the work load with his mother. With the additional tents there will be twenty-four bed changes per week.  To make this more economical, he plans to convert an old stable into a laundry so that it can be done on site.

Both Glamping sites have chosen tents which are handmade by Albion Canvas, creators of luxury tented lodges and geodesic domes, in their factory in Wellington, Somerset. The uniquely designed range of Safari-style tents have a central pole, a separate PVC outer flysheet and a complete canvas inner tent, which gives good thermal insulation in hot and cold weather, as well as sound proofing, making it useable all year round – even in the Alps, to where they recently fulfilled their first export order.

The Grand Tsavo, the largest of Albion’s five models, has interior space of 11.8 metres x 5 metres, which can be laid out in a number of ways to create separate rooms for living, sleeping and bathing, plus an outside deck of 2 metres. All models are designed to take a wood burning stove.  New for 2012 is the Zambesi, based on a traditional African “Rondavel” with an acrylic canvas roof, canvas walls, 3 opening windows and a solid external door and frame and fabric internal roof lining.

In addition to supplying the lodges, Albion can also erect and fully equip them, with locally made wood burning stoves, kitchens, bathrooms and furnishings.  Prices start from approximately £18,000 for the tent, installation, internal fixtures and fittings including the kitchen, wood burning stove and furniture (excluding bathroom fittings), or around £22,000 including the bathroom.

Orders take approximately four to six weeks to fulfil.

Going for Olympic Glory

21/11/2011 09:05

Olympic fever is spreading beyond the capital.  Boldscan incorporating Albion Canvas will be making outer skins for 18 sky high pods positioned 60m above the main Olympic stadium for the duration of the London 2012 Games.

Boldscan secured this unique commission from Olympic contractor Lee Warren.  The Company is known for manufacturing of marquees and engineered fabrics and incorporates Albion Canvas – creators of luxury tented lodges and geodesic domes.  The pods all have vital functions to perform throughout the games, from housing camera, projection and lighting equipment to providing launch platforms, shelter and resting places for the aerial acrobats taking part in the opening and closing ceremonies.

Boldscan Managing Director – Steve Hansford said of the commission

“We were really honoured to take on this job, contractors Lee Warren created the steel structures and our PVC skins provide the ideal hard wearing and weatherproof covering for the pods.  Form meets function as the end product is unobtrusive and adds an element of style to the overall design of the stadium.  It’s good to know we are doing our bit to make London 2012 a success for the UK”.

The frames for all 18 pods will be craned into position later this month and bolted into place enabling the Boldscan outer skins to be added.  The project is expected to be completed by the end of November.  On completion the pods will be accessible by ladders with heavier equipment craned into position.

A Few Days in Kenya

30/09/2011 06:44

Having just returned from Kenya in the last few days, it was a stark reality check from my previous visits.  Arriving at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi and being met by Duncan, driving in Nairobi the trees were full of Marabou storks, talking to Duncan he explained due to the draught in the country these fabulous birds were coming into the city to scavenge food.

This was a real problem, due to the numbers and only the day before I’d arrived the airport was closed for two hours because the storks had invaded the airport and were a danger to the aircraft.

Flying a couple of days later to Mombasa in a small aircraft it was very apparent to me the scale of the drought and the problems these areas of Africa are suffering.

In Mombasa I visited a number of factories, just to tell you about two –

Likoni Quality Furniture Factory is a project run by the Association of the Physically Disabled of Kenya (A.P.D.K) and working with Albert Mutua Project Manager.  We are currently developing a partnership to supply furniture and support this project here in the UK for further information see www.apaklimofurniture.org

Akamba Handicraft Industry Cooperative Society offers a range of wooden handicrafts; this community of over 5000 people work together to their mutual benefit, again Albion Canvas is looking to work with them, to supply their art in the UK see www.akambahandicraftcoop.com for further information.

Taking a little time off over the weekend I had the opportunity to visit the Tsavo reserve.  The name given to our lodge, click here if you are interested to see some photo’s taken on this excursion.
