by

I may be a little biased because I grew up just one county over in beautiful Herefordshire, but Gloucestershire is easily one of the most beautiful places in the UK.

You’ve got amazing scenery, great history, and – perhaps surprisingly – some of the best glamping accommodation in the country!

If you’re planning a glamping holiday in Gloucestershire, you’re in luck because there are so many amazing places to choose from and I’ve rounded them all up here for you.

So from treehouses and safari tents to shepherds huts and geodomes, here are 35 amazing glamping holidays in Gloucestershire.

The treehouse comes complete with all sorts of luxuries, such as a pizza oven, BBQ hut, kitchen, wood-burner, and en-suite bathroom.

What guests say: “The treehouse is fabulous. Immaculately clean and everything is thought of.

With comfy king-size beds, luxurious bathrooms, and a wood burner, these romantic little cabins are something seriously special. However, if all of this somehow wasn’t already enough, you can even pay extra for little special touches, such as a continental or cooked breakfast box, cake and candles, teatime treats, or vegan bakes!

What guests say: “The cabin was spotless on arrival and once again the jam and scones waiting for us were very welcome. Everything about the site encourages nature and we were lucky enough to see an owl one evening, perched and silhouetted against the darkening sky followed by a buzzard perched on a wooden post the next.”

Whether you hop into your hammock or your Western Red cedar wood-fired hot tub first is up to you, but either way, you’re guaranteed ultimate relaxation. The interior of the cabin is just as beautiful as its surroundings with cushions, throws and rugs aplenty to keep you super snug.

What guests say: “Goldrush cabin is a thoughtfully designed escape from the rat race. Comfortable bed and fun design of kitchen and shower. Wonderful being able to cook outside on the decking.

What guests say: “We really loved our stay in the horsebox. The horsebox itself has been beautifully converted, containing all the basic necessities you’ll need, and overlooks the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.

Why stay here: A great option for families looking to go glamping in Gloucestershire without splashing the cash, Notgrove Glamping Pods make the perfect base for your family staycation. Overlooking the idyllic village of Notgrove, these pods are set in a picturesque pocket of Cotswold countryside with access to walks over the 1,500-acre private Notgrove Estate. However, even if the weather’s not on your side and you’re not up for a rainy walk, don’t worry because the pods are just as gorgeous! Each pod comprises a double bed, sofa bed, en-suite, kitchenette, TV, dining table, and chairs, Wi-Fi and more. And if you fancy upgrading your stay a notch, you can book a stay in one of their gorgeous safari tents instead!

What guests say: “Just returned from our stay in the Bluebell Pod! Absolutely gorgeous pod, with everything you could need! So spacious and clean, with a lovely view of the alpacas outside. The games room was a lovely addition, along with local pubs and walkways! Would love to take Mr Bean the pig home with me, thank you for the stay.”

Why stay here: Fancy getting closer to nature? Well, you can do just that at Cotswold Meadow Bell Tents.

Location: Parkend, nr Coleford

Why stay here: If you want to be surrounded by some of the county’s best nature on your glamping holiday in Gloucestershire, then you’ll love Whitemead Forest Park Pods. There are loads of different pods to choose from but my favourite has to be the Mega Glamping Pod XL purely due to its sheer amount of space. However, even if you opt for a smaller pod, you’ll still have a great time. Plus, you can even book a Bed and Breakfast pod that marries the experience of glamping with the comforts of a hotel room. Breakfast baps, some juice and a hot drink? Sign me up!

What guests say: “Lovely and more spacious than I thought they would be. Close to all the amenities which were very clean. Great location, easy to check-in/out, fabulous friendly staff, nothing too much trouble especially for Jan/Ian. The pool was lovely and warm as was the jacuzzi. Lots of woodland walks or places to see.”

Why stay here: They say good things come in small packages and that’s definitely true in the case of Campbell Woods Shepherds Hut.

The hut comprises a double bed, wood-burner and a few helpful camping items, and that’s it. Staying here really is the best way to embrace rurality and switch off from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Well, with the added luxury of a wood-fired sauna, of course!
