by

Hey, I’m Lucy and I’m a self-proclaimed glamping addict.

I’ve stayed in everything from treehouses to geodomes to shepherds huts, and pretty much everything in-between.

This means I’m well placed to share the best glamping holidays in Kent with you!

If you’re planning a glamping holiday in Kent, you’re making a great decision because there are a whole host of amazing places for you to pick from. And I’m here to share the best of the best with you!

So from treehouses and shepherds huts to bell tents and safari tents, here are 33 amazing glamping holidays in Kent.

1. The Lodge Treehouse

Price per night: From £190 for 2 people

Location: Stelling, nr Folkestone

Why stay here: The Lodge Treehouse looks like it was plucked straight out of a fairytale, and if that’s not reason enough to pay it a visit, then I’m not sure what is. Just imagine your excitement as you first climb those steps towards your magical home amid the trees! If somehow that thought alone doesn’t have you rushing to book a stay, here are some more reasons: a sumptuous double bed, wall-mounted TV, log burner, seated bar area, coffee machine, power shower, and the best bit of it all, an open-air spa bath. Go on, book a stay – I know you want to!

What guests say: “Absolutely gorgeous. Loved it. Beautiful surroundings and all the little details in the treehouse were lovely. A hamper with sausages, bacon, eggs, juice and bubbles. Waking up to Rodney the ram and watching the hens putting themself to bed was so cute. Have very special memories of this place.”

2. Luna Domes

Price per night: From £230 for 4 people

Location: Chiddingstone Hoath, nr Royal Tunbridge Wells

Why stay here: For one of the more unique glamping holidays in Kent, book a stay at Luna Domes. Set among some pretty picturesque countryside, each dome is surrounded by natural grass plains and woodland, allowing for total peace and privacy. Inside each dome, you’ll discover all kinds of luxuries, including two floating king-size beds, a private heated bathroom, a Nespresso machine, Wi-Fi, media console, dressing robes and slippers, and a private hot tub!

What guests say: “Honestly I am obsessed with Luna Domes! You get the true feel of being in nature but with a luxurious feel … the domes are so beautiful inside and out with every single thing thought of. A large fridge, coffee machine with coffee pods… even found a cocktail shaker! Everything had been thought of!”

3. Hut in the Vines

Price per night: From £150 for 2 people

Location: Barham, nr Canterbury

Why stay here: If you’re a sucker for gorgeous interiors, then Hut in the Vines has to be near the top of your glamping holidays in Kent bucket list! There are way too many amazing things about this hut to mention, so I’ll share just a few of my favourites. Firstly, it’s set in the back end of their vineyard with the most unreal views. And who doesn’t love a vineyard? Secondly, just outside your hut, you’ll find a traditional wood-fired hot tub, a BBQ, table-top pizza oven, and an electric wall heater, all lit with festoon lighting. Finally, you can expect a similar story inside, with a plush wool mattress, wood-burning stove, and en-suite bathroom.

What guests say: “The hut is a special place, immaculate in its presentation and attention to detail, picture-postcard location, great facilities for your BBQ or making a pizza dinner, a proper fridge for food and champagne storage, lovely complimentary breakfast goods supplied, beautiful hand wash and shower gel.”

4. Elmley Nature Reserve Shepherds Huts

Price per night: From £130 for 2 people and £170 for 4 people

Location: Elmley, nr Sittingbourne

Why stay here: Elmley Nature Reserve Shepherds Huts have been at the top of my UK glamping bucket list for yeeears now. And who could blame me when they’re this beautiful? The nature reserve is home to an impressive six shepherds huts, each as stunning as the last. The huts range from smaller, more intimate offerings such as the aptly-named Little Owl, all the way to larger huts, such as The Saltbox, arguably the most famous of the lot. (Though I’d recommend booking a stay in The Damson for its outdoor bath!) As you can probably tell, a stay here is already very special as it is, but you can make it even better by ordering hampers right to your hut!

What guests say: “Saltbox is so beautifully designed and positioned; it comes complete with incredibly comfy bed, lovely hot shower, well equipped compact kitchen and an uninterrupted view across the marshland. Outside you are provided with your own fire bowl, a bucket of wood (as well as a jar of marshmallows for toasting!)”

5. Elmley Nature Reserve Bell Tents

Location: Elmley, nr Sittingbourne

Why stay here: If Elmley Nature Reserve has caught your eye, but you fancy getting a little closer to nature, why not consider a stay in one of their Bell Tents? There’s something to suit every taste, whether you fancy sleeping in woodland or a meadow. If you choose the former, you’ll get to enjoy electricity, your own private swing, and views across the reserve to the estuary. However, if you opt for the latter, you’ll get to wake up to beautiful sunrises and spectacular views across the marsh. Either way, you’ll still benefit from comfy double beds, and loos not too far away.

What guests say: “It was such a relaxing and peaceful stay! The nature walks through the marshes were beautiful, we saw lots of wildlife (birds, hares, a hedgehog!), our tent was cosy and comfortable, everything we needed was provided. It was so convenient to be able to cook our own meals on the barbecue, but also order a supper hamper for a rainy night.”

6. Sandy Toes Beach House

sandy-toes-beach-house-at-shellbeach-house

Price per night: From £285 for 5 people

Location: Leysdown-on-Sea, Isle of Sheppey

Why stay here: This one’s for the beach bums and water babies among us! Okay, it might not be Hawaii, but you’ll love a stay in Sandy Toes Beach House if you’re happiest by the water. Situated on the Isle of Sheppey, the beach house enjoys amazing views of the North Kent coast from the height of its stilts and through its wide windows. Aside from the coast, you can also expect to see fishermen, paddleboarders, and nudists too. Yep, that’s right, about 150m down the sand to the right, there’s a popular nudist spot. But if you’re not interested in any of that stuff, you can hunker down inside your spacious, yet cosy, house.

What guests say: “We immediately felt welcome and relaxed. It’s truly off the grid but super cosy. We spent the days walking in the neighbouring nature reserve, beachcombing, slow cooking, bird watching and teaching the kids to play backgammon. But mostly, we just looked at the phenomenal view – the huge skies and changing tides meant that it constantly refreshed.”

7. Greenhill Glamping Shepherds Huts

grey-greenhill-glamping-shepherds-hut-in-field-glamping-kent

Price per night: From £140 for 2 people

Location: South Alkham, nr Dover

Why stay here: How do panoramic views of rolling green fields sound? Good? Then you need to get yourself down to Greenhill Glamping Shepherds Huts pronto! The views here really are second-to-none but you have to experience them for yourself to really believe them. But that’s not the only reason to book a stay here. Both huts are ridiculously cosy and come complete with a bespoke king-size bed, luxury ensuite, kitchen with a Nespresso coffee machine, and a wood-burning stove. On top of all this, you can make your stay extra special by booking a breakfast hamper, pack lunch, or mini gift bags!

What guests say: “We had an amazing time in Ploughman’s retreat. A unique experience in a wonderful setting. The hut has been impeccably restored with every last detail thought of. We had lovely breakfasts outside taking in the view which was a wonderful way to start the day. BBQs over the fire pit and roasting marshmallows while watching the sunset were highlights.”

8. The Enchanted Faraway Tree

round-bed-inside-the-enchanted-faraway-tree-cabin

Price per night: From £185 for 2 people

Location: Honey Hill, nr Canterbury

Why stay here: My blog (Faraway Lucy) was named after the Enchanted Faraway Tree book series, so I’m kind of obliged to book a stay in The Enchanted Faraway Tree. I mean, I can’t complain when it’s this cosy. Just look at that skylight! Think of the stargazing opportunities! This treehouse is basically romance at its finest, not least because it also benefits from a wood-fired hot tub that you and your loved one can soak in to your heart’s content. And after you’ve gone for a dip, you can head to the twin outdoor hot water shower to wash yourself off.

What guests say: “There are no words to describe how beautiful the Enchanted Faraway Tree is! It surpassed expectations! Left for us was a lovely little welcome bag with lots of lovely treats and they even took the time to put up balloons and a lovely 30th decoration, plus the Prosecco in the fridge was a lovely touch! The place was immaculate and we left feeling so refreshed and relaxed!”

9. Gulliver the Quirky Camper

Price per night: From £175 for 2 people

See also  Glamping Tennessee: 31 Amazing Places You Need to Stay At [2021]

Location: Honey Hill, nr Canterbury

Why stay here: Situated on the same site as the Enchanted Faraway Tree, you’ll find Gulliver the Quirky Camper. Now, you may be thinking ‘A camper? I want to stay in more than just a camper for my glamping holiday!’ but please let me assure you that this isn’t just any old camper. Especially because it benefits from its own private wood-fired hot tub! It’s also surprisingly spacious inside with a double bed, wood-burning stove and mod cons a-plenty, including a fridge, mini electric oven/grill, and a two ring gas hob. Plus, there’s even an outdoor TV for you to watch while in the tub.

What guests say: “We wanted something different from the norm. And Gulliver the Quirky Camper was just that! On arrival, we were just amazed by how much detail was put into everything, from the rope edging to the little copper pipes housing the wire for the little lights. We were even blessed with a goodie pack of snacks and breakfast bits plus a lovely chilled bottle of Prosecco in the fridge.”

10. Tree House Hideaway

living-and-dining-area-inside-tree-house-hideaway

Price per night: From £271 for 2 people

Location: Honey Hill, nr Canterbury

Why stay here: Last but absolutely by no means least in our Honey Hill glamping offerings we have Tree House Hideaway. Sitting six metres off the ground amongst willows, conifers and fruit trees, it’s easy to feel at one with nature here. But don’t worry because this treehouse is far from camping. As evidenced in its price tag, Tree House Hideaway is the most luxurious of the lot and is more akin to a small holiday home, if anything. Expect all sorts of modern luxuries, such as underfloor heating, a ​SKY TV with a DVD player, a dishwasher, and a private hot tub.

What guests say: “Below the treehouse was a double swing, two sunbeds, a chimenea and the highlight, a hot tub set in a fairytale rock feature. On entering the treehouse we were surprised at how big and spacious it was. There was a lovely touch with a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge and a complimentary bag of tasty local goodies!”

11. Hedgehog Hall Cabin

hedgehog-hall-cabin-in-field-with-outdoor-seating

Price per night: From £125 for 2 people

Location: Paddock, nr Ashford

Why stay here: Hedgehog Hall Cabin may be small but boy does it pack a punch. Cute, cosy and ridiculously intimate, it’s an ideal romantic getaway for you and your loved one (or, well, anyone you don’t mind getting a little up close and personal with!). It’s also a great break for wildlife lovers as the eco-farm and surrounding ancient woodland are home to a whole host of animals. Whether it’s wild deer or red kites, you’re sure to spot all kinds of creatures! But even if animals aren’t your jam, this cabin is worth a stay in its own right, not least because it benefits from its own eco wood-fired hot tub.

What guests say: “We had a wonderful stay, loved how the hall was set apart from the other properties on the farm. The hall, kitchen and wood-fired hot tub were well equipped. We had a lovely walk in the woods recommended by the host and had dinner at the local pub one night.”

12. Rose Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £100 for 2 adults and 2 children

Location: Paddock, nr Ashford

Why stay here: On the lookout for some amazing hot tub views? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll get to experience if you book a stay in Rose Shepherds Hut. Situated on a small organic farm in the heart of the Kent Downs AONB overlooking a swimming lake, the hut enjoys some of the best views of any glamping site in Kent. But that’s not the only reason to book a stay here. The beautiful handmade hut warrants a visit in its own right, thanks to its well-equipped interior, free Wi-Fi, private deck, and charcoal BBQ.

What guests say: “The setting is idyllic with the woodlands all around and the beautiful lake. I have never seen so many swallows and watching them dive down to the lake while lazing in the hot tub was the most relaxed I have felt in months! The hut has everything you could need and more.”

13. Wheatfields Luxury Safari Tents

wheatfields-luxury-safari-tent-in-field-glamping-kent

Price per night: From £170 for 8 people

Location: Rye, nr Hastings

Why stay here: I’ve seen my fair share of safari tents in my time, but not many come close to Wheatfields Luxury Safari Tents, especially the larger of the two tents, Skylark, that even benefits from glass bi-fold doors. Set on the edge of Romney Marsh, the two spacious tents sleep up to eight people each, making them a great option for families looking to go glamping in Kent. And with hot showers, wood burners and luxurious bedding, you won’t feel like you’re missing out on the luxuries of home.

What guests say: “What can I say, this place is amazing. We stayed in Sandpiper and it has everything you could want! It has a beautiful view, a large stylish and spacious interior with the most comfortable beds, a good shower and a fire pit! There’s everything you need for a comfortable stay and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking.”

14. Leeds Castle Knights Glamping Tents

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people (additional children are charged at £25 per child)

Location: Broomfield, nr Maidstone

Why stay here: Ideal for families with young children, Leeds Castle Knights Glamping Tents will keep the little’uns entertained for hours! The tents themselves are surprisingly luxurious with a four-poster bed, cosy electric flame effect stove, crisp cotton bedding and snug furry throws. And on top of all this, there’s also plenty to do on-site too. Whether you do a falconry experience, Go Ape in the trees, go on a segway tour, or just explore the castle and grounds, there’s plenty to keep you busy.

What guests say: “Our tent was perfectly positioned with its own decking and felt private. The tent itself is brilliant, inside the four-poster bed was super comfy and warm. Tea and coffee making facilities, bathrobes, hot water bottles and throws. The wood-burning fire and logs were perfect and were definitely needed once the sun went down.”

15. Gooseberry Field Airstream

gooseberry-field-airstream-glamping-kent

Price per night: From £134 for 2 people

Location: Pluckley, nr Ashford

Why stay here: Swiftly taking you from the fields of Kent to the deserts of America, Gooseberry Field Airstream will have you living out your American dream in no time. You know a place is really cool when the accommodation isn’t even the highlight. And that’s the case with this airstream as it has a private one-of-a-kind Victorian Carriage converted wood-fired hot tub. I’ve seen a lot of hot tubs in my time, but nothing like this! However, if the airstream (and its accompanying tub) somehow doesn’t take your fancy, they also have several luxury bell tents on-site for you to choose from.

What guests say: “We had the most amazing time. The airstream is super lovely inside and out. It includes a toilet, shower, fridge and kettle. Even a spare plug socket to charge your phone, so you can take some awesome photos of the campsite – trust me – you will want to!”

16. Huntingfield Hut

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Throwley Forstal, nr Faversham

Why stay here: Sitting in a quiet spot on the lawns of Huntingfield House, the adorable little Huntingfield Hut makes for the ultimate romantic getaway for two. I mean, come on, click through to their website and just look at that queen-sized cabin bed! Who doesn’t want to curl up there with their loved one? Aside from a very inviting bed, the hut also comprises a little log burner, a kitchenette with an original Georgian saddleback sink, and an en-suite with a nice hot shower. The hut is secluded enough to enjoy privacy, but has the added benefit of being close enough to the house that you can get warm bacon rolls delivered to your door each morning! Deeee-licious.

What guests say: “It was romantic, rustic and will be remembered forever. The surrounding area of the grounds was beautiful. Waking up to those views calmed our souls. Our hosts made us feel very welcome. The little personal touches we appreciated, for example, on our arrival the retro radio was on and set to a jazz station and there were wildflowers picked for our table – cute and thoughtful.”

17. Port Lympne Giraffe Lodges

Price per night: From £445 for 4 people

Location: Lympne, nr Folkestone

Why stay here: Port Lympne Giraffe Lodges may be the most expensive place to go glamping in Kent, but if you can afford it, it’s worth every penny. I mean, how many people can say they’ve slept in a lodge with giraffes just parading around outside? Not many, that’s for sure. With a watering hole right beneath the ten lodges, you couldn’t be closer to the action – and the best bit is that you don’t have to compromise on comfort either. Every tent has an en-suite, heating, lighting, fluffy towels, and dressing gowns. Plus, breakfast and dinner are included in the price too!

Price per night: From £269 for 2 adults and 2 children

Location: Lympne, nr Folkestone

From a double bed and an indoor wood burner to a monsoon shower and Smart TV, there’s everything you could possibly want under one roof. Your stay also includes exclusive access to the park after hours so you can live the safari experience all by yourself!

What guests say: “These cute cabins offer all anyone could need/want for an amazing overnight stay. Well furnished, with tea/coffee facilities, fridge, compact bathroom and outdoor seating. Located within earshot of lions! Have a tour when the visitors have gone home – it enabled us to see tigers/lions/bears/rhino/gorillas virtually within arms’ reach.”

I mean how many glamping sites come complete with their own llama paddock? Sat in its own private woodland clearing, Sergeant Troy is perfectly placed for you to switch off from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Outside there’s a fire pit for grilling or toasting marshmallows, and inside you’ll find a bed, log burner, kitchen, table, and a white slipper bath.

What guests say: “The whole thing was perfect. Michelle was very welcoming and left some lovely personal touches in the hut which was immaculate and beautifully presented. We loved the secluded location and we spent a lot of time with the llamas and pigs. We had some lovely walks through the private woods.”

20. Rankins Farm Pods

Price per night: From £90 for 2 adults and 2 children

Location: Linton, nr Maidstone

Why stay here: You’ve probably seen your fair share of bang average glamping pods in your time but you haven’t seen those at Rankins Farm. These pods deserve a special shoutout purely thanks to their surroundings. It’s safe to say they’re pretty good. The six self-contained glamping pods are surprisingly spacious, comprising a double bed, sofa bed, kitchen and an en-suite bathroom. And don’t worry about feeling the cold because all the pods are heated with underfloor heating!

What guests say: “I can’t say anything negative about Rankins Farm. The two hosts are extremely kind and accommodating and genuinely care about their guests. The pods are extremely well equipped, very spacious and the sofa bed is even larger than the actual bed!”

21. Preston Court Bell Tents

Price per night: From £80 for 6 people

Location: Preston, nr Canterbury

Why stay here: For one of the cheaper glamping holidays in Kent, book a stay in Preston Court Bell Tents. With prices starting from just £13 per person a night, you’d be silly not to stay here, especially when the tents are so beautiful. This 600-acre estate is home to two separate glamping areas: the Glamping Meadow and the Woodland Glade. Both have their own merits so it all comes down to which area you prefer! However, you can rest assured that regardless of which area you choose, you can expect proper beds, crisp cotton sheets, snuggly throws, and even better surroundings.

What guests say: “We had the most magical stay. There was nothing I would change… Izzy was amazing, welcoming and there if we needed anything at all. The glamping tents were beautiful and equipped with everything one would need for a perfect stay.”

Location: Chegworth, nr Maidstone

Why stay here: The views at Chegworth Mill Tents are pretty spectacular. And if good views aren’t enough to warrant booking a stay somewhere then I don’t know what is. On-site, there are three bell tents to choose from, Freckles Apple, Galmac Apple, and Russet Apples, all named after apples grown in the orchard next door. Each tent comprises electric mains, heating, a comfy king-size bed and two twin beds, and a private bathroom. And if this wasn’t enough, the accommodation is also a B&B so you can expect to wake up to a light continental breakfast of cereals, croissants, bread, fruit, juice, and more!

What guests say: “We highly recommend this glamping site, run by lovely people, they go the extra mile on everything. We had breakfast baskets each morning with eggs from their own chicks and fruit juices made from their own orchard. The tent itself was beautiful! All the furnishings were great and lots of room for our things.”

23. Ham Hideaway Safari Tent

Location: Ham, nr Dover

Why stay here: Ham Hideaway’s Safari Tents are seriously beautiful. Sleeping up to six people each, these two safari tents are a great option for families or a group of friends looking to go glamping in Kent. The tents benefit from everything from sumptuous bedding to superfast Wi-Fi to a range of gourmet catering options. Yep, that’s right,, you can pay a little extra for an afternoon tea arrival hamper, BBQ hamper, or breakfast or dinner brought straight to your tent. However, if you’re crazy and the safari tents somehow don’t tickle your pickle, then you can also stay in Ham Hideaway’s Shepherds Huts.

What guests say: “The safari tent was furnished to a very high standard with lots of classy finishing touches. The welcome hamper was a real treat! The beds were comfy and the rooms were cosy and warm with the heating system. The service was first class. They went above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.”

Well, if you stay in one of Longberry Farm’s Bell Tents, you can enjoy hot tub dips galore! (If you’re willing to pay a premium, that is). If hot tubs don’t float your boat, don’t worry because these bell tents are worth a stay in their own right. Think proper beds with sprung mattresses, luxury cotton bedding, and all the blankets and cushions!

What guests say: “Wow, can’t speak highly enough of Longberry Farm. The team have thought of everything from the ‘Secret Spa’ to hot water bottles and slippers… The site is beautiful and tucked away, with a hot tub too. We were so impressed by the standard of the tents (comfy, clean & comfortable beds) and the immaculate bathrooms (powerful, hot showers).”

Living out your childhood dream is definitely made a lot better when it’s kind to your wallet too! Located on a 15th-century farmstead, this rustic treehouse benefits from a cosy bed you’ll never want to leave, but maybe the beautiful surroundings may tempt you…

What guests say: “This a magical and beautiful place to stay. We had a lovely walk into the village, cooked Romney Marsh lamb on the BBQ and stayed out under the stars drinking whisky. We loved the way the tree goes through the room and even has oak leaves growing through and the bed was super comfy.”

26. Free Range Glamping

Location: Chiddingstone, nr Tonbridge

Why stay here: If the photo above doesn’t inspire you to book a stay at Free Range Glamping, I don’t know what will. But luckily for you, I’ve got a whole host of other reasons to book a stay here, aside from the beautiful surroundings. Firstly, the site is home to both yurts and shepherds huts, meaning there’s more than one option for you to pick from. Secondly, all the accommodation is simple but beautifully decorated, so you can get closer to nature without compromising on home comforts. And lastly – okay you got me – the views are just seriously special!

What guests say: “We had everything we needed for a fun, relaxing and comfortable stay. The hut is cosy and has good insulation so it was warm on our recent autumn trip. The site is quiet and you have enough space between the huts and yurts so you have privacy. The outdoor shower is a fun experience, especially on a sunny day.”

27. Little Halden Farm Safari Tent

Price per night: From £85 for 6 people

Location: Rolvenden, nr Rye

Why stay here: Little Halden Farm Safari Tent is one of the most reasonably priced places to go glamping in Kent. £14 per person per night? Count me in! Set on a raised deck with a spacious porch, the safari tent is well-placed to enjoy views of some of Kent’s best countryside. (However, I’d personally recommend enjoying the views from your campfire after you’ve made your own pizza!) Inside, the tent is just as well-equipped with plenty of beds to spread yourselves across. But, if the safari tent somehow doesn’t take your fancy, it’s your lucky day because you also have huts and yurts galore to choose from.

What guests say: “Stayed in a safari tent which is huge! Lots of little extras like welcome hamper and charging spot for phones. This spot has the most stunning scenery and we even set our alarms to catch the sunrise. The facilities were good. Showers lovely and all was spotless.”

28. Bloomsburys Biddenden Yurts

And if that wasn’t enough, you can pay a little bit extra for the added luxuries of a hot tub and sauna!

What guests say: “When shown to our yurt, the beautiful, bohemian interior exceeded all expectations! Twinkling fairy lights, encircled the sumptuous bed, creating an ethereal atmosphere. The bed itself was extremely comfortable and the bed linen, crisp and of high quality. Tea and coffee, fridge and washing up facilities were all provided.”

29. The Nut Plat Retreat

In each van, you’ll find a double bed with a cosy feather duvet and pillows, a fold-down table and chairs, and plenty of games, books and a pack of cards to keep you entertained. And the cherry on top of an already very tasty cake is your own private wooden wood-fired hot tub! Ready for a dip, anyone?

What guests say: “Everything we needed was provided for us. Literally, just bring food and drink. Loved waking up to the birds in the morning. It was so relaxing we didn’t leave the site for our entire stay. Just what we wanted. The hot tub is a must, we used it every day at least twice a day!”

Price per night: From £227 for 6 people

Location: Marden, nr Tonbridge

Why stay here: Gravel Pit Farm Safari Tents is somewhere where good memories are made. So grab all your friends and family together for a staycation of a lifetime with some beautiful views and even better sunsets! (Unfortunately, I can’t guarantee the amazing sunsets but hopefully, you’re blessed with one as they’ll make your break even better.) Words really can’t do these safari tents justice as they’re just so beautiful. However, what I can tell you is that they each comprise king-size and single beds, a well-appointed bathroom, a fabulous wood-burning stove, a well-stocked kitchen, a campfire, and a spacious covered veranda.

What guests say: “Amazing lodges and beautiful location. Owners could not do enough for you. The children and adults thoroughly enjoyed the campfire and loved picking the fresh eggs and stroking the horses. We would thoroughly recommend and look forward to returning in the future.”

Admittedly, all their options are beautiful so it just comes down to how much you want to splash the cash!

What guests say: “Wanted to go off-grid, but not too far off-grid and this is perfect. There are fire pits on every pitch and after dark, it looks like the Ewok village! At night you can hear the owls in the surrounding woodland, foxes too if there aren’t many dogs around. Low light pollution means you can see the stars.”
