My family and I were lucky to be offered a three-night stay on the Longleat Estate courtesy of Give Us Time. The cottage that we stayed in was located right on the safari park and from the garden we could watch the Giraffes, Zebras, Monkeys and Anne the Elephant. We could even hear the lions roaring at night!
The staff at Longleat gave us lots of information before we came to stay and we arrived to a lovely welcome hamper in the beautiful cottage. All of our needs were catered for while we were there and nothing was too much trouble for our host. We were taken on a VIP safari tour where we could get right up to the animals and our guide taught us lots of amazing facts about all of the animals on the park. We also were given a VIP tour of the small animals where we go to feed anteaters and aardvarks, and we were able to hold a snake and tarantula which the children loved!
We spent lots of time exploring the whole of Longleat over the three days that we stayed and it was amazing to just have time together as a family without the distractions of day to day life. We have made some beautiful memories to cherish. Thank you so much to both Give us Time and Longleat for making this happen, we are so grateful for your kindness!
