Loyton Lodge & Safari Tent are set in the heart of Loyton Farm, expanding over 280 acres in the heart of North Devon.
Originally a dairy farm, the land is now used throughout the year for various sports and farming.
The Safari tent (or as its well known as ‘the party tent’) is a purpose-built venue for supper clubs, dinner parties, weddings, and events.
Here at Loyton we like to make use of our surroundings and are often found foraging for wild berries and pines for our expansive cocktail list or searching for wildflowers to use in our displays.
Sitting on the edge of our golf green, the tent has expansive views, lots of walks and even a river to splash in-
the perfect setting for summer weddings and winter feastings.
Alongside the safari tent, Loyton Lodge caters for up to 20 people over 10 bedrooms with a large dining room, bar, sitting room and billiard room; so, plenty of options to choose from!
Head chef Barrie Tucker started his career at the Castle Hotel, Taunton under the guidance of Phil Vickery,
and a career highlight at the triple Michelin starred Chez Nico with the legendary Nico Ladenis and more recently Luttrell Arms in Dunster.
Now very much based in West Somerset and Exmoor, Barrie champions locally sourced ingredients and beautifully presented food from his menus.
He now runs the kitchens at Loyton Lodge & tent, using the best local produce available alongside his foraging finds.
With a wealth of experience, knowledge and local influences, Barrie has been creating bespoke menus for our guests, running cookery workshops, and managing the team here at Loyton for the last year.
The team are looking forward to the spring and summer seasons and what produce and inspiration that will bring.
