If you were looking for cottages like Murciano Safari Tent, how about trying these:

Glamping at Black Pig Retreats allows you to escape the everyday; park your car, load your luggage onto the farm's all-terrain vehicle and your countryside adventure begins, canvas living with a little of the luxury that we all deserve. Nestled in a south-facing wildflower meadow, with magnificent views over the Blackmore Vale, you could spend your whole holiday at Black Pig Retreats, exploring the woodlands, footpaths and trails that surround you. Murciano is pitched halfway up a large wildflower meadow on a raised platform, perfect for enjoying the spectacular sunsets with a glass of something delicious, the stars look magnificent from this rural retreat, and the calling of owls will make this a holiday to remember. This stylish Spanish themed safari tent, named after a domestic pig from Murcia in Spain, has a wood-fired range for cooking and heating, a two-ring gas hob, a well-equipped kitchen-area, including a fridge/freezer to keep those holiday treats beautifully chilled and a sink with plenty of hot water. The super comfy beds include a king-size bed, twin beds and a double cabin bed, great fun for kids to have as their holiday den, suitable for adults too. At the back of this luxury tent is an en suite shower-room (with double-size shower tray) and across from this is a cloakroom with flushing WC, wash-basin and heated towel rail. Further down the meadow is [Gascon]( "Gascon"), another safari tent sleeping six, with a French theme. In the lower meadow sits [Mukota]( "Mukota"), an African themed safari tent sleeping four and a delightful Bothy built with straw bales and timber clad which is available for use if you book all three tents. This charming building is equipped with tables and seating for twenty allowing groups to dine together if they wish. Pilates classes are often available in the Bothy on a Wednesday from 10am to 11am at a cost of £15 per person per class; if you wish to attend during your holiday please let the owner know when you arrive and pay her directly. The star attraction of this small holding is Beauty the Large Black pig, who inspired the name of the site and all three of the beautifully styled tents are named after breeds of black pig. Bittles Brook Farm has an equestrian facility and in addition to Beauty and the horses, you will encounter the owners' chickens sheep and dogs, although they are all on the farm away from your glamping meadow. Your dogs are welcome to join you in this 'away from it all holiday', but please keep them under control. Black Pig Retreats has bags of space for a game of football, cricket, rounders or kite flying; as the farm name suggests there is a brook and a pond to explore, so please supervise children at all times. The village shop and pub are a fifteen and thirty minute walk along footpaths and lanes.
