Glamping Herefordshire: 33 Amazing Places You Need to Stay

by

Herefordshire is a beautiful county.

Okay, I may be a little biased because I was brought up there, but I promise you won’t regret a staycation there!

Especially when there are so many amazing places to go glamping in Herefordshire.

And what better place to get closer to nature on a glamping trip than in a county full of natural beauty?

From treehouses and shepherds huts to safari tents and yurts, here are 33 amazing glamping sites in Herefordshire that you need to stay at.

1. Stargazers Wagon

Price per night: From £98 for 2 people

Location: Shobdon, Leominster

The rustic and chic Stargazers Wagon at Herefordshire Hideaways has to be at the top of my list of glamping holidays in Herefordshire, purely because I’ve stayed there myself and couldn’t have loved my stay more.

Originally part of a ghost train in Germany in the 1940s, this 27-foot long wagon has a pretty cool history.

Now it’s beautifully designed to house a cosy double bed, kitchen and living area.

And of course, the outdoor hot tub which is a dream to stargaze in!

What guests say: “We had such a peaceful and relaxing stay, it was so nice to get away and forget about all of the madness! The wagon is beautiful and so spacious yet so cosy. The hot tub is perfect when it’s fresh outside. Was a lovely surprise to have some fresh eggs left for us, perfect for boiled eggs and soldiers! We will definitely be back.”

2. Rook’s Treehouses

Price per night: From £190 for 2 people

Location: Norton, Bromyard

If you’ve ever wanted to fulfil your childhood dream of sleeping in a treehouse, then look no further than Rook’s Treehouses.

Home to three immaculate and uniquely designed treehouses, there’s something to suit everyone at The Rookery Woods.

The question isn’t ‘Should I go?’ but more ‘Which treehouse should I stay in?’.

Each treehouse has its merits but what is common throughout is the surrounding thriving woodland, huge windows to let the views and light flood in, and sumptuous sofas and cosy beds to snuggle up in.

The Rookery Woods might just be my favourite place to go glamping in Herefordshire.

So, trust me and go!

What guests say: “Where do I begin? To start, Heather & Dale were the perfect hosts. Not only did they prepare Prosecco (free of charge) as a birthday gift, but were readily available to answer any questions even before our arrival! We arrived to a log burner that was ready lit to warm the home – this was amazing. Dale even insisted on taking us into town as the cabs are hit and miss.” 

3. Pen-y-Fan Cabin

Price per night: From £95 for 2 people

Location: Garway, Hereford

Named after the mountain visible in the distance, Pen-y-Fan Cabin does views seriously well.

I mean, forget the cabin, you’ll just want to spend all your time out on the decking, swing or hammock admiring the amazing countryside!

Just a stone’s throw from Garway Hill, I couldn’t recommend a walk up here more.

With unparalleled views and wild ponies running free, it’s definitely one of the best things to do in Herefordshire. Inside, the cabin is just as gorgeous.

The bed and reading nook look like a real treat!

What guests say: “We had an amazing three days in the cabin which was so cosy, instant hot water in the shower, and the bed was without a doubt the best we have ever slept in! It’s beautifully decorated with such an incredible view. Cheryl was so helpful with recommendations of things to do and where to eat which we took her up on.”

4. Drover’s Rest Safari Tents

Price per night: From £75 for 4 people

Location: Dorstone, Hereford

Transporting you from the green fields of Herefordshire to the expansive plains of South Africa, Drover’s Rest Safari Tents are tucked away at the foothills of the Black Mountains.

Ridiculously luxurious (these aren’t any old tents), the site is the proud winner of ‘Best Glamping Site in the UK’ at the Staycation Awards 2019.

The first sign of luxury is the chimney of a log burner poking out of the roof of each tent, quickly followed by the lush sofas, cosy beds, private hot monsoon showers and flushing loos.

And if that wasn’t enough, the hosts can cook wood-fired pizzas, authentic curries and heavenly BBQs for you! Delicious.

What guests say: “We have just returned from a week at Drovers Rest in the Ramming Ewe safari tent… AMAZING! We absolutely loved our stay and will most definitely be back. The accommodation was so clean and spacious with very comfy beds, you have really thought about everything – the tents are so well equipped from kitchen utensils to electric blankets! The olive bread, blueberry muffins, and milk were a nice arrival touch, and very tasty too – thank you!”

5. Cynefin Retreats

Price per night: From £178 for 2 people

Location: Hay-on-Wye, Herefordshire

Easily one of my favourite places to go glamping in Herefordshire, Cynefin Retreats is both an architecture and interior lover’s dream.

So where to start with this absolute haven?

The four luxe pods are modern yet romantic, with an open-plan kitchen and living area, and an en-suite bedroom with a gorgeous floating bed.

Ideal for all-year-round stays, they all feature a wood-burning stove and underfloor heating to keep you toasty even on the chilliest of nights.

However, the highlight of the pods is the covered wooden deck with private hot tub, bespoke fire-pit and BBQ.

Basically, all I’m saying is that these pods are a dream come true.

What guests say: “This pod retreat was incredible, we stayed in Rowan and the view when you wake up in the morning is stunning as the sunbeams through the glass sliding doors and windows and makes you feel completely switched off from the rest of the world. The only other company we saw were the nearby sheep! The hot tub is a great activity to do in the evening when it’s dark as you can stargaze.”

6. Cosy Under Canvas Domes

Price per night: From £80 for 4 people

Location: Newchurch, Kington

For one of the most unique glamping holidays in Herefordshire, head to the award-winning Cosy Under Canvas.

It’s the ideal place to satisfy your craving for the outdoors with no compromise on comfort.

You’ll be close to nature but with all the luxuries of home.

Think comfy beds, snug duvets, fluffy sheepskins, cosy rugs, real coffee, hot showers and steamy hot tubs.

However, the best part of Cosy Under Canvas is how eco-friendly and off-grid it is.

With compost loos, wood-fired showers and solar lights, these stylish geodesic domes do bits for the environment and for you!

What guests say: “The staff are so friendly and welcoming, and the added extras including bike hire, breakfast and the wood-fired hot tub are a must! We also got the opportunity to order fresh wood-fired pizza that is cooked for you on their wood-fired oven. We honestly cannot fault this place, the best two nights sleep we’ve had in a long time too. The bed was soo comfy, made even cosier with the log burner roaring. Sitting in the hot tub gazing at the stars is a memory we will keep forever!”

7. Pax Cabin

Price per night: From £122 for 2 people

Location: Whitney-on-Wye, Hereford

Nature is at its best at Pax Cabin.

Situated on the Wales England border, you’re just a stone’s throw from some of the best hikes in the Brecon Beacons.

But if you just want to sit back and relax, you can enjoy the countryside views and go wildlife watching while soaking in the hot tub or while curling up with a good book on the porch bench.

Inside, the cabin is beautifully designed to maintain that rustic cabin charm while also feeling oh-so-luxurious.

The wood-burning stove and cosy bed are just calling my name!

What guests say: “The view – the view – the view – I promise you will find it hard to get out of bed or off the sofa. The cabin cannot be faulted with a huge amount of attention to detail. It is great as it has all the rustic character whilst still having all the modern finishings that make your stay comfortable. The cabin is also very private in the way it has been designed and you honestly felt like no one else was around.”

8. The Wagon Above the World

Price per night: From £99 for 2 people

Location: Orcop, Hereford

Boasting some of the best views of any glamping site in Herefordshire, The Wagon Above the World is quite literally that – above the world!

Sat almost 1000ft above sea level, the views really are unparalleled and you can enjoy them from the comfort of your hot tub while the record player plays the soundtrack to your stay.

If the hot tub doesn’t take your fancy (though it’d be mad not to), you can soak up the views from the log seats, deck chairs or hammock too.

Inside, the wagon is just stunning, but I guess you’ll have to discover it for yourself.

What guests say: “We spent four magical nights in the Wagon Above The World in December. It was just as beautiful a location as advertised, and the wagon itself is incredibly well finished and furnished. It feels like a train car from the Orient Express with its chandeliers and wood interior, it’s so well decorated! The wood burner kept us nice and warm, and we stayed in December. The hot tub was easy to fire up and gets to a lovely hot temperature.”

9. Brook House Woods Treehouses

Price per night: From £160 for 2 people

Location: Bromyard, Herefordshire

Moving swiftly on to Brook House Woods, which is home to some of the most unique glamping offerings in Herefordshire.

The first of which is a handful of charming treehouses that I’m sure you’ll go weak at the knees for.

With their rolltop veranda baths, indoor bathroom, kitchen and fluffy feather kingsize bed with Egyptian cotton linens, these treehouses are nothing short of luxurious.

So luxurious, in fact, that they offer room service with some incredible homecooked food. This really is a hotel in the trees!

What guests say: “The treehouse itself was beautiful – wonderfully finished and furnished, and so cosy when the log burner was on the go, and a duvet that you could barely see over when in bed! The panoramic windows looking out over the fields made for a stunning morning/evening view. The treehouse was matched and then some by its surroundings.”

10. Brook House Woods Hobbit Hut

small-hobbit-house-lit-up-with-fairy-lights-in-evening-at-brook-house-woods-glamping-herefordshire

Price per night: From £115 for 2 people

Location: Bromyard, Herefordshire

This Hobbit Hut is one of the best glamping holidays in Herefordshire for Lord of the Rings fans.

The aptly-named hut is cosy and compact, while never feeling claustrophobic.

Inside, you’ll find a kingsize bed with feather duvets and pillows, and a wood burner, all lit up by fairy lights.

It’s the perfect place to lay your head for the night and cuddle up with your partner – there’s definitely no shortage of romance here!

There’s a private toilet, shower and kitchen just a short walk away, meaning you don’t have to completely skimp on luxuries either.

What guests say: “I absolutely LOVED it. The lodging itself is lovingly crafted and decorated with fairy lights and a log burner. It’s really well insulated so don’t leave that burner on too long! I am a city girl and am far too bogged down by mod cons and social media. This was the ultimate detox. No wifi, no cars on site: it’s just perfect.”

11. Brook House Woods Goji Tree Tent

red-spherical-goji-tree-tent-suspended-in-air-at-brook-house-woods-glamping-herefordshire

Price per night: From £115 for 2 people

Location: Bromyard, Herefordshire

How many people can say they’ve slept in a ball floating in the sky?

I think it’s safe to say the answer is not many.

But that’s exactly what you can do in the Goji Tree Tent.

For a glamping holiday in Herefordshire that you won’t forget anytime soon, head to Brook House Woods.

Suspended between two ash trees and an oak tree in the mature bluebell wood, you’ll find a tent that houses two single beds, a wood burner and a desk.

However, the highlight of the tent is the entirely glass roof which makes the beds the perfect stargazing spots.

What guests say: “Well, I’ve never slept in a ball suspended in the trees before and it was fantastic. We had a great time here and the dogs were welcome. The amazing views, the atmosphere, own kitchen with fire pit and BBQ… then a cinema of all things. You have your own shower and toilet and everything is just fab. The Goji Tent was amazing and I definitely recommend it.”

12. The Greedy Gander Yurt

bright-and-colourful-greedy-gander-yurt-with-double-bed-and-two-single-beds

Price per night: From £120 for 4 people

Location: Norton Wood, Norton Canon

This authentic Mongolian yurt will take you straight from the fields of Herefordshire to Mongolia.

Centred around an impressively large French antique bed, the yurt can sleep a couple or a group of friends or family.

It’s up to you whether to make it a romantic retreat or a bigger getaway!

The yurt is beautifully decorated with Indian throws and rugs to create an oh-so-cosy atmosphere.

And outside you’ll discover some gorgeous gardens which have been featured on the cover of the Royal Horticultural Society magazine.

That means they’ve got to be beautiful, right?

What guests say: “Absolutely wonderful welcome from Charlie & Sarah, there was freshly backed cake for us on our arrival. The yurt itself was an amazing experience, it was spotless and stunning along with the kitchen and toilet/shower. Meeting the different animal there was a great experience, overall I would recommend this venue to anyone wanting a peaceful, tranquil break/ holiday. We will definitely be returning.”

13. The Grey Goose Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £130 for 2 people

Location: Norton Wood, Norton Canon

Set on the same site as The Greedy Gander, The Grey Goose Shepherd’s Hut steps up the luxury once more.

With a private wood-fired hot tub sat adjacent to the hut, ideal for long evening soaks, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Wake up in your farmhouse-feel hut and swing back the top half of the stable door to watch the sunrise over some of Herefordshire’s best countryside.

You may even be greeted by some free-range hens and curious sheep too!

What guests say: “The hot tub is fantastic – we loved that it was wood-fired – and that, along with the gorgeous views made the stay for us. We didn’t use the bubbles, instead preferring to listen to the wildlife and farm animals. So relaxing! The hut itself has everything you might need and is finished to a high standard. We spent our days cooking on the fire pit, dipping in and out of the hot tub while drinking fizz and enjoying the gorgeous countryside”

14. Redhill Domes

Price per night: From £170 for 2 people

Location: Whitbourne

Okay so this one’s a little cheeky as it’s just across the border to Worcestershire but just, right?

Plus, with accommodation and views like this, who cares where you are?

Redhill Holidays offer one of the most unique glamping offerings in Herefordshire, with four luxury domes to choose from, each featuring a private outdoor living space and hot tub.

It’s great that the outdoor space is so well-equipped because let’s be honest, you stay here for the views.

So it’s a good thing that the domes are built on a raised platform to maximise the view across to the Malverns. 

What guests say: “For anyone wondering if they should book, my advice is – get a wriggle on! The whole place is beautiful. The Domes have been so cleverly designed, everything you need and more for a glamping break away is provided. The freshly baked bread on arrival was a really nice touch and it was delicious! No chance of being cold either, the log burner certainly kept the cold away. A hot tub and big fluffy fresh towels, oh and slippers and robes too!” 

15. Prothero Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £95 for 2 people

Location: Blakemere, Herefordshire

Between the ridiculously cosy interior, amazing views, private wood-fired hot tub and the kindest hosts you will ever meet, there are so many reasons to stay in Prothero Shepherds Hut at The Moon and I.

Seriously, I adore this place so much.

Tucked away in its own little field, right on the footsteps of the Black Mountains, nature is at its best here.

Expect to wake up to the sounds of birds, woodpeckers, pheasants and owls going about their daily business.

Martha and Reuben do their upmost to make your stay a special one.

Make sure you request a DIY gourmet breakfast hamper, a chilled organic prosecco or a s’mores basket before you arrive!

What guests say: “The cabin is so cosy and comes with everything you could need for a lovely, chilled weekend. We used the pizza oven in the outdoor kitchen the first night and cooked breakfast in the hut each morning then enjoyed some al fresco dining around the fire pit. Martha & Reuben were so nice and helpful and even had the hot tub at the perfect temperature for our arrival. I can not recommend this place enough.”

16. Curlews Cabin

Price per night: From £95 for 2 people

Location: Docklow, Leominster

I mean, just look at the photo above. Need I say anymore?

Set on the most picturesque lake that looks like the most perfect off-grid escape anyone could ask for, Curlews Cabin is a little haven away from modern life.

Named after the birds that nest nearby, there is an abundance of wildlife right on your doorstep.

Admire your surroundings while paddling the boat around the lake, swinging on the bench on the verandah or lying on the pier by the water.

No matter how you choose to soak up the scenery here, you’re bound to have an amazing time.

What guests say: “My fiance and I had a lovely stay at Curlews Cabin! The cabin itself was so cosy with the fire going. My highlight was enjoying a coffee each morning on the swing seat, looking out over the lake with lots of wildlife buzzing around. So peaceful. Tim is lovely too and showed us around the farm which was an experience in itself.”

17. Maddle Brook Safari Tent

Location: Byford, Hereford

Sat within 2000 acres of the family-owned Garnons Estate, surrounded by fields and large apple orchards rather than other tents, Maddle Brook Safari Tent is quite the step up from your typical camping trip.

With peaceful surroundings like these, adults can enjoy the seclusion while children can run around freely.

Inside, the safari tent is tastefully decorated and ridiculously cosy with entertaining space for all the family.

Or why not just stay with your other half for a romantic retreat? It’s up to you!

What guests say: “Great pub in walking distance, secluded riverside swimming spot 10 mins walk away, firepit for toasting marshmallows and cooking on. Hot shower and flushing toilet in an adjacent cabin, beds that were so comfy we all slept for 10 hours! We will be making this an annual trip, it was amazing family time. Top of the range furnishings in understated elegance.”

18. The Officer’s Hideaway Safari Tent

Price per night: From £149 for 4 people

Location: Byford, Hereford

The Officer’s Hideaway genuine ex-military safari tent is set on the same estate as Maddle Brook but with a completely different vibe.

And it’s safe to say this one is even more up my street!

Where to start except to say that the interior is gorgeous.

Made from a unique amalgamation of real-life military equipment, with a separate bomb shelter bathroom, the hosts have certainly taken their theme seriously.

Inside, two woodburning stoves, a chesterfield sofa, a double bedroom and a fully functional kitchen come together to create a super cosy living space.

If you stay at one glamping site in Herefordshire make it this one.

What guests say: “A really unique glamping experience. Perfect for the young at heart and adventurous kids. The army theme was so well thought out and it was such a quiet spot with amazing views and walks. Tents were surprisingly warm with the log burners, even though it was October. Great hospitality- a lively Victoria sponge and a Bannock bread mix waiting, as well as a pint of milk. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend.”

19. Upper House Shepherds Huts

green-shepherds-hut-with-open-doors-in-field-at-upper-house-glamping

Price per night: From £80 for 2 people

Location: Ledbury, Herefordshire

Set near my gorgeous hometown of Ledbury, Upper House Shepherds Hut is a real treat.

The cosy, well-equipped hut comes complete with a kitchen and bathroom, so if the weather’s bad you can just cosy up inside.

However, I’d recommend heading out on a long walk to explore some of the area’s best countryside, before coming back to your private sauna to sweat it out.

The hosts even supply a welcome basket on arrival and fresh eggs from the hens so you can cook up a storm in the morning! Yum.

What guests say: “What a treat. A shepherd’s hut overlooking a field of ewes with their lambs gambolling about…..all in an April evening! The hosts are wonderful, thoughtful people whose little extras and cares make you feel so welcome. Views wonderful, very relaxing and private. Dining aldente watching the sunset very good for the soul. Plenty to see and do country, heritage and history-wise too.”

20. Tawny Owl Wagon

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people

Location: Longtown, Hereford

The ideal departure from Wi-Fi and deadlines, Tawny Owl Wagon is a Herefordshire glamping holiday that will help you completely disconnect from the rat race.

Made by a local blacksmith, the cosy double wagon is actually three wagons.

With separate spaces for your bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, this is a stay that forces you to become at one with nature.

And as if this wasn’t enough, step out of your hut and you’ll see the Luvtub, the perfect wood-fired hot tub for two. Talk about romantic!

Top tip: make sure to order a hamper of local produce before you arrive for the ultimate campfire breakfast.

What guests say: “We had the most amazing time at Tawny Owl. So relaxing and Sophia was very attentive before our stay to make sure we had all of the information we needed. The wagons were gorgeous and I loved all of the little homely touches. All of the facilities were amazing and last but not least the hot tub was the cherry on top! The weather was on our side and we enjoyed every minute, very secluded and I enjoyed a couple of hours reading in the hammock… absolute bliss!”

21. The Huts in the Hills

Price per night: From £236 for 8 people

Location: Llanigon, Hay on Wye 

Could you think of a more idyllic spot to stay than right by a small babbling stream?

Well, if you’re anything like me, you’ll love a stay at Huts in the Hills.

Set in a woodland clearing in the Black Mountains, their shepherd huts provide off-grid accommodation for small groups of adventurous travellers.

Whether you go away with friends or family, you have four shepherds huts to spread yourselves across.

The outdoor space comes complete with a wood-fired hot tub, campfire, picnic table and swings, so you could easily just spend your whole holiday onsite!

What guests say: “The location is just amazing, the huts are lovely and well looked after, very comfortable. It was a great experience, everyone just loved it.”

22. White House Tipis

Price per night: From £119 for 4 people

Location: How Caple, Hereford

If you want to seriously get back to nature, then White House Tipis might just be the Herefordshire glamping site for you.

Tucked away in an apple orchard on the most idyllic farm (the river Wye winds its way for a mile through it!), nature really is at its best here.

The tipis are kitted out with a cosy interior and outdoor eating and relaxation area. However, you’ll be desperate to explore more of the local area too!

With canoeing, fishing and BBQs on the beach literally on your doorstep, you’d be silly not to.

What guests say: “Wonderful stay, autumn has well and truly fallen but the tepee was so cosy and warm with many blankets, a little ‘wood burner’ which kept us warm toasting marshmallows outside. Projector is such a different idea! We snuggled up with hot chocolates after a hard day paddling on the river wye. Wish we could have stayed longer.” 

23. Mad Dogs and Vintage Vans

Price per night: From £85 for 2 people

Location: Brampton Abbotts, Ross-on-Wye

Mad as a box of frogs, I can’t get enough of the eclectic and charming mix of vintage caravans at Mad Dogs and Vintage Vans.

Beautifully restored and situated in a wildflower meadow with unparalleled views of the Black Mountains, this really is the rural idyll.

Dating back to the 30s, 40s and 50s, you’ve got four caravans to choose from. Each has its merits but they all benefit from the amazing communal on-site facilities.

From the Mad Dogs Deli which sells local Herefordian delights (including their very own traditionally pressed cider) to massages, facials and reflexology treatments galore, this is one of the most luxurious glamping holidays in Herefordshire.

What guests say: “One of the things I loved most about Mad Dogs and Vintage Vans was the attention to detail. The whole business is clearly a labour of love, and the owners have gone to huge lengths to create an environment that’s welcoming, glam, and restful, yet practical too. For instance, they don’t want chemicals in the water system, so they provide a range of eco-friendly toiletries in the shower, and Ecover washing up liquid at the sink.”

24. Watsons Cabin

Price per night: From £140 for 2 people

Location: Symonds Yat, Ross-on-Wye 

Easily one of my favourite glamping holidays in Herefordshire, Watsons Cabin is nothing short of dreamy.

Nothing screams ‘bliss’ quite like a long soak in the floor-level hot tub while taking in the impressive views of the hills, valley and river.

Outside, you can also lounge on the recliners while you get the BBQ going.

But it’s not just the outside that is amazing here.

Inside, this modern holiday home feels less like glamping and more like a hotel. Why not go discover it for yourself?

What guests say: “Our stay was absolutely magical. There isn’t a single thing we could fault about Watsons Cabin and the thought that had gone into it, right down to Christmas lights and a cupboard full of toiletries for ‘just in case’ moments. This was my first experience of a wood-fired hot tub, and although you have to plan your dips in advance to ensure it’s heated up, it is so worth waiting for to relax in whilst staring out across the fields.”

25. Hollow Ash Shepherds Huts

Price per night: From £80 for 2 people

Location: Broad Oak, Hereford

There’s no chance of feeling blue in a Hollow Ash Shepherds Hut. Blue, get it? No? Okay…

The first thing you’ll notice as you enter your shepherds hut is a delicious welcome basket awaiting your arrival.

Dig in to find homemade cider, jam, eggs, a loaf of bread and butter, and some local cheese and bacon.

It’s safe to say you’ll have some delicious breakfasts to wake up to!

Inside, you’ll also find a woodburning stove, basic cooking facilities and a cosy bed. Outside, there’s a fire bowl, outdoor chairs and a hammock, ideal for long days lazing away.

What guests say: “An amazing place that truly exceeded our expectations! The quality of our accommodation was exceptional, as were the toilet/bathroom facilities. Clare and Gerald were so friendly and welcoming, giving us privacy but making themselves available if we needed. The food parcel was a wonderful (and very tasty) touch. We truly felt we had a restful and relaxing break away in a beautiful location.”

26. The Potting Shed

the-potting-shed-cabin-in-field-on-sunny-day

Price per night: From £125 for 2 people

Location: Madley, Hereford

A two-storey cabin that would not look out of place in the American South, The Potting Shed is a rustic getaway with a whole lot of charm.

From a roof made out of sweet chestnut shingles to a wood stove made from an old gas bottle with a copper kettle perched on top, this cabin is one of the most characterful glamping holidays in Herefordshire.

The interior is so cosy that you’ll never want to leave.

However, the highlight of the cabin is the large balcony that overlooks the Canada geese on the lake and cattle in the neighbouring fields.

Perfect morning coffee spot? I think so.

What guests say: “Every part of our stay was perfect!! The space in the shed is amazing! The views are beautiful and it was such a lovely romantic getaway. Apples from the trees outside were delicious and we even were visited by the lovely family cat and dog. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants a nice quiet few days away and a screen detox.”

27. Darnells’ Safari Lodges

Price per night: From £105 for 6 people

Location: Linton, Ross-on-Wye

From the States to South Africa, Darnells’ Safari Lodges are one of the best Herefordshire glamping options for larger groups.

Cook up a family-sized feast on the BBQ on the patio or on the log-burning stove inside, and dine around the kitchen table.

With fresh food supplied locally, I can guarantee your meals will be ridiculously tasty!

Once you feel so full you might burst, you can retreat to your cosy beds with duck feather duvets. Talk about luxury.

What guests say: “We absolutely loved the whole experience! So peaceful – a perfect place for Ben to revise for his exams next week! The safari tent was amazingly well equipped – loved having an attached bathroom! We will hopefully come back. Great hosts and the breakfast on the first morning was a lovely surprise! We will definitely recommend this place to family and friends.”

28. Hope House Farm Shepherds Hut

Location: Cradley, Malvern

A handcrafted wood cabin, views of the Malvern Hills, and a wood-fired hot tub. Need I say more?

Inside, Hope House Farm Hut is just as charming, with its cheerful French navy and ochre colour scheme that will have you re-evaluating your own interior back home.

Packed into a small space is a cosy double bed with window views, a shaker-style kitchen and a bathroom with unlimited hot water.

And just a few steps from the hut is a gorgeous yurt that doubles up as a living room.

Or if you fancy bringing a couple of mates along with you, it can be extra sleeping space!

What guests say: “We had an amazing time at Hope House Farm and cannot recommend this enough. Bruce was so welcoming and made us feel right at home, we thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruit and farm eggs which were fantastic. The shepherd’s hut and yurt were really cosy and the hot tub was a huge added bonus! We enjoyed the lovely walks near by and feeding the pigs with lots of apples.”

29. The Wells Airstreams

Location: Bromyard, Herefordshire

The Wells Airstreams win the award for one of my favourite places to go glamping in Herefordshire.

A shiny American Airstream may be the trailer of choice for pop stars and famous country singers but here it can be your accommodation of choice too.

With an impressive five airstreams to choose from, you’re bound to find something that’s up your street.

Each is luxurious as the last and there’s a campfire and seating outside both to spend long nights toasting marshmallows and stargazing!

What guests say: “Spend a beautiful evening glamping at The Wells. The Airstreams are immaculate and the views are stunning. Highly recommend.”

30. The Sipson Wagon

Price per night: From £75 for 2 people

Location: Vowchurch, Herefordshire

Retired from decades on the road, this well-travelled wagon has been lovingly restored into the amazing Herefordshire glamping accommodation you see today.

Years of hunting in vintage shops and antique furniture sales have led to this beauty.

Inside, the living space is oh-so-homely with two big chairs to cosy up in by the wood-burner, an old sewing machine table, and a plethora of books and games ideal for rainy days.

What guests say: “We spent a lot of time in the garden watching the sheep graze close at hand. You can hear and see the birds, butterflies and stars. It really refreshes your soul. At night we played cards or scrabble next to the indoor log burner. The rustic van is really quirky and perfectly kitted out – we wanted for nothing. The shower was lovely and hot.”

31. Nature’s Nest Safari Tents

Price per night: From £250 for 6 people

Location: Ballingham, Hereford

Camouflaging with the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, you’ll find four luxurious safari tents at Nature’s Nest.

An off-grid home-away-from-home, each tent is spacious, well-equipped and furnished with solid flooring throughout.

There’s no chance of getting cold here either.

Whether you cosy up by the wood burner, the fire pit or in the five-person hot tub, you’ll stay toasty even on the chilliest of nights.

However, my favourite thing about the site is that it has full private access to the River Wye. Canoe or kayak, anyone?

What guests say: “Nature’s Nest is my perfect idea of glamping. A chance to be under canvas in a picturesque setting but with all of my home comforts, so clean, tidy and warm with comfy beds our own fully stocked kitchen and bathroom. Having a fire pit and hot tub was the icing on the cake plus all of the thoughtful extras like warm fluffy blankets for maximum comfort and enjoyment.”

32. Majestic Bus

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people

Location: Whitney-on-Wye, Hereford

If there’s one word I could use to describe Majestic Bus, it would be ‘majestic’.

Okay, that’s a bit of a cop-out, but hey, it is what it says on the tin.

This lovingly converted Bedford Panorama Bus comes complete with a gorgeous double bed, wood-burning stove and a well-thought-out dining and kitchen area.

And the best part is that the bus is entirely powered by the sun!

They have the solar panels on the roof to thank for that.

There’s also a gorgeous rolltop bath and luxury Swedish wood-fired hot tub which are definite highlights too.

What guests say: “Rob was very welcoming and we were very pleased with the bus, especially the little touches of fresh flowers and a delicious lemon drizzle cake. The interior not only looked attractive but was also really comfortable and cosy. The stove, already alight when we arrived, was very efficient and easy to take care of. The bathroom with its deep bath and lashings of hot water was a bonus.”

33. The DugOut Roundhouse

Price per night: From £275 for 2 people

Location: Coles Tump, Orcop

Last but by no means least we have The DugOut, as featured on Grand Designs.

This turf-roofed marvel is unlike any other glamping holiday in Herefordshire.

Gotta go out with a bang, right?

From the circular bedroom and the rope pulley light switches to the library bathtub and hedgerow branches shaped into towel racks, there are so many gorgeous details to discover inside.

This place combines the best of both worlds: amazing scenery, plus all the mod-cons you’d expect from a modern hotel, such as a Sonos sound system and Wi-Fi.

What guests say: “A perfect place for a peaceful getaway. I wanted a few days of cosy isolation between busy times at work, and The DugOut was the ideal spot. The cottage is comfortable and has everything you could need, with extra luxuries including a huge extra-comfy bed and the incredible library-bath with a view! It was constructed with great love and craftsmanship, and is filled with organic shapes and cunning touches unlike anywhere else I’ve ever visited.”
