Glamping Somerset: 25 Amazing Places to Stay At [2024]


If you want to go glamping in Somerset, then you’re in no shortage of amazing, beautiful and quirky places to choose from.

Whether you want something ridiculously luxurious or you want to get a little closer to nature, you’re bound to find a glamping holiday in Somerset that you’ll love on this list.

So from treehouses and safari tents to shepherds huts and yurts, here are 25 amazing glamping holidays in Somerset!

1. Tall Trees Safari Lodges


Price per night: From £170 for 6 people

Location: Coxbridge, Nr Glastonbury

If you want to go glamping in Somerset with a big group of friends or family, without it costing the earth, then you need to book a stay at Tall Trees Glamping.

Accommodating six people each, their four luxurious safari lodges offer the ultimate rural escape, surrounded by a wildflower meadow and an orchard.

And the best part is that you can be close to nature without compromising on luxury because the interiors are stunning.

Expect electricity, constant hot water, and sumptuous mattresses that you’ll melt into.

You can cook up a storm in the kitchen too, or opt for the wood-fired pizza oven or home-cooked meals from their honesty shop instead.

Prices start at £170 a night but if you book with the discount code FARAWAY10 you can get 10% off your stay!

What guests say: “Fabulous location, helpful staff, high quality, spacious, everything you need! The photos do not do it justice. The ‘tents’ are beautiful, the location is quiet and tidy, the bathrooms have a powerful shower, lots of towels, and heated blankets on the beds (which are very comfy). There were more than enough cooking utensils, a good sized fridge, a sitting area outside with a fire pit, a log burner inside, board games.. the list goes on, basically everything you need is provided.”

2. Vilberie Cabin


Price per night: From £148 for 2 people

Location: Wookey, Wells

I mean, the bath alone is enough to warrant a stay here.

The photo above really does speak for itself!

The striking circular bathroom houses a massive stone tub, large enough to fit two, making Vilberie Cabin one of the most unusual romantic weekend breaks in the UK.

However, the curved cabin itself is no less an amazing space.

It’s kitted out with a bedroom, living room and kitchen, and a few touches of extra indulgences such as a kingsize bed and a Nespresso machine.

And if that wasn’t enough, the cabin is set in a beautiful arboretum that was once a cider orchard.

It’s the perfect spot to spend a few wonderfully relaxing days.

3. Dabinett Treehouse


Price per night: From £205 for 2 people

Location: Wookey, Wells

Set on the same orchard as Vilberie Cabin, Dabinett Treehouse is something seriously special.

From the sumptuous king-size bed to the sofa by the wood burner to the incredible bathtub out on the deck, there’s so much to discover here.

Similar to Vilberie Cabin, the star attraction of the treehouse is, of course, the outdoor hot tub.

Whether you relax in it in the morning with a coffee from the Nespresso machine, or in the evening with a bottle of wine from the neighbouring vineyard, you’re guaranteed a relaxing stay here.

What guests say: “Dabinett Treehouse and Fenny Orchard was wonderful. All the details had been thought of, the log burner prepared, milk and butter, local treats in a basket. Lovely toiletries and fluffy towels. The view was wonderful and the treehouse itself was thoughtfully decorated so snug and flawlessly clean! The orchard itself was secure peaceful and private.”

4. Dimpsey Shepherds Huts


Price per night: From £145 for 2 people

Location: Chard, Somerset

Set on a small 30-acre historic farm on the Blackdown Hills, Dimpsey Shepherds Huts are easily one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset.

Guaranteeing a private, intimate stay, each hut sits in its own field with stunning views.

(These amazing views are, of course, best enjoyed from the decadence of your outdoor wood-fired hot tub!)

However, what makes Dimpsey so special is all the extra touches they add to make your stay a good one.

From little flasks and enamel mugs to a vintage picnic basket filled with sandwiches and treats, any walks you embark on will definitely be memorable!

What guests say: “We had the most wonderful idyllic weekend at the Dimpsey Shepherd’s hut. Emma was an excellent host, greeting us even when we were late to arrive having baked us a cake and stocked the fridge with bacon and eggs ready for breakfast. Every detail has been thought about, with goodies to find in every corner such as board games for a rainy afternoon and waterproof bag with a thermos you can take on a picnic.”

5. The Cabin in Piggy Woods


Price per night: From £280 for 2 people

Location: Wincanton, Cucklington

The Cabin in Piggy Woods is just as cute as the name of the woods it inhabits.

Whether you visit here in rain or shine, you’re guaranteed a good time, as the cabin is filled to the brim with amenities that will make your stay oh-so-cosy.

The characterful cabin was custom made by owner Woody in a quiet corner of the woods, designed with modern comfort in mind.

You’ll quickly find yourself rotating between the covered veranda and the big armchairs by the fire, while playing board games, reading books and sipping on your favourite tipple!

What guests say: “Inside, it felt like stepping into a stylish London cocktail club. You could spend hours just exploring the interiors and making your way through the shelves full of those books you wish you had on your own coffee table. With the roaring fire and comfy armchairs, it’s the perfect place to retreat and hunker down whatever the weather.”

6. The Bower Treehouse


Price per night: From £250 for 2 people

Location: North Brewham, Bruton

If you’re looking for one of the most luxurious glamping holidays in Somerset, then look no further than the Bower Treehouse.

Everything at the Bower is organic, so you’ll feel even closer to nature here.

From the bath salts, candles and woodland setting to the king-sized bed carved from stag oak, this treehouse is a real escape from modern life.

The question isn’t ‘Do I stay here?’ but more ‘Do I head to the huge outdoor hot tub or to the firepit first?’.

What guests say: “First and foremost, The Bower Treehouse is where we just got engaged, so we will always treasure our stay there! It was full of thoughtful high-quality touches – good coffee, natural skincare, robes, fresh milk in the fridge. Felt like every need had been anticipated! Really respect and appreciate the eco values too.”

7. The Yurt Retreat Roundhouses


Price per night: From £197 for 2 people

Location: Fordscroft, Crewkerne

The Yurt Retreat Roundhouses have to be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset.

There are two roundhouses to choose from, The Nest and The Hide, and both are as luxurious as the other.

But most importantly, both come complete with an outdoor bath, made with long evenings stargazing in mind.

Inside, both roundhouses are beautifully decorated – seriously, they look like they could be a five-star hotel!

And the luxury ensuite bathrooms benefit from underfloor heating, a clawfoot bath and a big, rain-head shower.

And if that wasn’t enough, why not pay an added extra fee to use the woodland sauna?

It’s the perfect addition to an already magical stay!

What guests say: “My wife and I spent two nights in a delayed midweek break at ‘the Hide’ yurt. It is, simply, one of the best ‘couples’ places we have stayed in. The setting is scenic and rural, away from main roads and tourists but not far from local amenities. The accommodation is perfect, including everything you need if you want to self cater/stay in. The outside bath is a unique addition. In short, switch off the phone, grab a book, run the bath and relax…”

8. The Yurt Retreat Birdhouse


Price per night: From £247 for 2 people

Location: Fordscroft, Crewkerne

If The Yurt Retreat’s roundhouses didn’t take your fancy (though you’d be mad not to like them!), how’s about a stay in their Birdhouse?

Standing proud on its tree trunk stilts, the treehouse is clad in local Cedar.

A wide staircase winds between the trees to lead you up to your ample decking where you’ll find a gorgeous wood-fired hot tub.

Inside, the treehouse is just as dreamy.

From the handmade bed to the rain-head shower, they certainly haven’t skimped on luxurious touches here.

What guests say: “We stayed in the Birdhouse, a beautiful eco treehouse, slept so well at night, lovely, warm & cosy, everything has been thought of inside this treehouse (even lactose-free milk) we enjoyed the marshmallows in the evening sitting by the fire, at night there are pretty lights that light up the treehouse & forest outside, so romantic we didn’t want to leave.”

9. The Yurt Retreat Yurts


Price per night: From £127 for 2 people

Location: Fordscroft, Crewkerne

The eponymous yurts of The Yurt Retreat are also a real treat!

Long gone are the days of back-to-basics yurts because these are something seriously special.

You won’t think you’re sleeping under canvas at all.

Made with canvas over a beautiful wooden lattice, the hand-sculptured yurts are beautifully designed in a Scandi style.

The wood burner and heated blankets mean you’ll stay toasty even on the chilliest nights.

And there’s even a stargazing window at the top so you watch the stars from the comfort of your own bed!

What guests say: “I can not speak highly enough of The Yurt Retreat! The yurt was beautifully furnished and had everything we could need for our stay. The yurt has a SUPER comfy double bed (the best sleep we have both had in ages), a sofa, dresser, dining area, TV, log burner, tea and coffee station and a little kitchenette! Outside we had our own little private garden with a BBQ, fire pit and table and chairs on the yurt decking. And of course the private bathroom around the back of the yurt.”

10. Old Oaks Pods


Price per night: From £67 for 2 people

Location: Wick, Glastonbury

When you think of glamping, you probably think of your basic glamping pods.

However, Old Oak Pods aren’t just any old pods!

Cosy and spacious, these futuristic bespoke glamping cabins were sourced, designed and built just a few miles away near Glastonbury.

Inside the heated pods, you’ll find a king-sized bed, mini-fridge, kettle, toaster and a skylight for stargazing.

Admittedly, the pods are a little more basic but for the price tag, who can complain?

What guests say: “Can’t rate this place highly enough! We stayed for 3 nights and wished we’d booked for longer. The staff were so friendly and the pod and showers were immaculate! Lovely and peaceful! This time we ordered the welcome pack and we were not disappointed. Good quality inside with a full-size bottle of wine. Lovely! Definitely returning for a third year.”

11. Tractors and Cream Geodomes


Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Othery, Somerset

This family-friendly glamping site is home to an amazing selection of unique geodomes.

The kids have six acres of meadow to run free in, as well as a separate play area, made with hours of fun in mind.

All the while, you can cosy up on a hammock with a glass of wine in hand. Not too bad, huh?

Inside the modern geodomes, there’s a double bed and bunk bed; however, they can also add a travel cot or camp bed free of charge.

And if you’re worried about getting cold, don’t be, because each dome comes complete with a toasty wood burner!

What guests say: “Our second visit to Tractors & Cream and we were not disappointed! We LOVE the new dome and extra additions like the outdoor kitchen. We felt totally relaxed and Sophia says this is the best holiday in her whole life so you are going something very right. (Probably something to do with the s’mores, fresh brownies & fairy garden along with yours, Anabelle & William’s kind-hearted nature!)”

12. Woodspring Farm Shepherds Hut


Price per night: From £75 for 2 people

Location: Kewstoke, Weston Super Mare

If you want to be surrounded by some of Somerset’s best countryside, then you’ll love Woodspring Farm Shepherds Hut.

Not only are the views amazing but you’ll also drop off to sleep while literally counting sheep (and goats and pigs) wandering past the hut. Inside, the hut is toasty and charming.

However, the highlight of any stay here is the huge organic and locally sourced breakfasts that are brought to your hut at a time of your choosing.

Anticipate boiled eggs, toast, croissants, pain au chocolat, yoghurts, cereal, butter, jam, coffee, and teas in abundance!

What guests say: “A very relaxing, getaway for a few days, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Out in the countryside but close to the beach. Amazing weather, and fantastic, hospitable hosts. Lovely shepherds hut, very well-equipped. Adorable animals. Fantastic views.”

13. Lower Coxbridge Yurts


Price per night: From £100 for 4 people

Location: Lower Coxbridge, Nr Glastonbury

Situated in a large wildflower paddock adjacent to Lower Coxbridge House, Lower Coxbridge Yurts are a great getaway option for a group of friends or a small family.

On-site, you can book everything from a hot tub and yoga to massages and an astrology night sky experience, meaning you could easily spend all your time just within the field.

Each yurt is made of quality canvas and sits on a raised wooden platform for added warmth!

And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a wood-burning stove with a stove-top kettle to keep you toasty in the colder months.

Hot chocolate anyone?

What guests say: “We absolutely loved our stay in the yurt! The fire and blankets kept us nice and warm, we didn’t even have to use the hot water bottles and it was equipped with everything we needed, from candles to crockery. We made the most of the hot tub and the peaceful surroundings too. We were also so impressed with how eco-friendly everything was, we will definitely recommend this to our friends and we hope to return to do some yoga too!”

14. Middle Stone Farm Safari Tents


Price per night: From £217 for 6 people

Location: Brompton Ralph, Somerset

Who needs Africa when you’ve got Somerset, ey?

You’ll feel like you’re staying on the plains of South Africa at Middle Stone Farm where you’ll find six spacious and luxurious safari tents.

Separated into two separate glamping fields, ensuring privacy for all, each tent comes with a private wood-fired hot tub, large enough to fit six people!

Outside you’ll also find private firepits and hammocks, ideal for long summer evenings watching the sunset.

And the best part is that you don’t need to compromise on luxury to stay here because each tent has full private bathrooms with hot showers, flushing loos and lighting.

What guests say: “Such a wonderful place! The owners are so welcoming and accommodating. We felt so comfortable and relaxed here. Lovely touches to the accommodation. It was well kept indoors and out, and the great option to have homemade cooked food was PERFECT! What a lovely touch that was. I would definitely recommend and would stay again! (our dog loved it too!)”

15. Mendip Molly Wagon


Price per night: From £77 for 2 people

Location: Gurney Slade, Radstock

Looking for something a little quirkier than your usual glamping holiday in Somerset?

Well, that’s exactly what you’ll find in Mendip Molly.

This vintage 1949 showman’s wagon is packed full of charm, history and a delicious interior that is an amalgamation of all sorts of styles.

A highlight is the elaborate painting of a bird-filled sky that you’ll spot on the ceiling!

Additionally, the stargazing starlight above the shower is another real treat too.

What guests say: “Mendip Molly is a gorgeous converted showman’s caravan, complete with mod-cons. The caravan is situated on the owner’s site, along with two other cottages, but it’s hidden away in the corner of the grounds giving you lots of privacy. The caravan was spotlessly clean and David and Laraine were on hand if necessary (to delivery extra logs for the fire). The BBQ hut is amazing and was super toasty warm on a chilly Saturday evening.”

16. The Yurt Sanctuary Yurts


Price per night: From £105 for 2 adults and up to 3 children

Location: Emborough, Radstock

A wood-fired hot tub under the trees.

Have I sold you on The Yurt Sanctuary yet?

Set in a secure two-acre paddock within the wonderful Somerset countryside, The Yurt Sanctuary is home to two cosy and beautifully designed yurts that you’ll never want to leave!

Sat at opposite ends of the paddock, with plenty of trees between them, the yurts are not only totally private and separate from each other, but also from the rest of the world.

Whether you book a massage treatment or a crystal healing session (or how about both?), you’ll go back to your hectic life feeling oh-so-refreshed.

What guests say: “We’ve just come back from here after a weekend of outdoor heaven. Michele did everything she could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible and went above and beyond. From the warm welcome to delaying feeding the goats so our son could join in and help, we couldn’t have had a better time! The yurt was beautiful, comfortable and very warm with the fire going. The hot tub was amazing and felt even better to know we had helped to heat it.”

17. Pennard Hill Farm Tree Tent


Price per night: From £115 for 2 people

Location: Shepton Mallet, Somerset

Okay, so Pennard Hill Farm Tree Tent is easily one of my top five places to go glamping in Somerset.

I mean, just look at it!

Could you possibly ask for anything more unique than that?

Wild, natural and totally off-grid, the tree tent is a suspended spherical structure strung between two trees overlooking the gorgeous Mendip Hills.

It captures the fun of camping while still feeling luxurious.

From the rope bridge to the fire pit to the hot outdoor shower, get ready for a stay like no other.

What guests say: “We had the most wonderful stay at the tree tent! Pippa was ever so accommodating and helped my boyfriend (now fiancee) to set up the perfect proposal!  From the moment you drive through the gates, you will be in awe of the beauty and sense of tranquillity. The kitchen is fully equipped, the shower is a great experience and the fire is perfect – don’t forget marshmallows! You also get a great view of the sunset from the field just outside the tree tent.”

18. Tilbury Farm Shepherds Huts


Price per night: From £122 for 2 people

Location: West Bagborough, Taunton

Great views? Check. Wood-fired hot tub? Check. Luxurious interiors? One big check!

There’s nothing not to love about Tilbury Farm Shepherds Huts; however, the highlight is obviously those views!

I mean, I personally couldn’t think of anything much more idyllic than sitting back outdoors watching the sunset with a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.

And if the weather’s not on your side, the hut is lovingly stocked with a multitude of games, books, music, Wi-Fi and entertainment to keep you busy even on the rainiest of the days!

What guests say: “Everything was amazing. The setting is resplendent. It’s like sitting in heaven watching the world below you. The hut is also amazing. To call it a hut is a disservice the double brace hut layout is fantastic. We’ve stayed in shepherd huts before and they were lovely but this gives so much space it’s like a little hotel suite. Being able to spread out and not fall over your belongings. The food hamper was also fabulous – lots of local produce, all of it lovely.”

19. Deers Leap Yurt


Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Willoughby Cleeve, Holford

These views are just getting ridiculous now, aren’t they?

Overlooking trees, rolling countryside and ancient woodland, Deers Leap is set in a little slice of heaven.

You might even spot deer in the woods as you lie out on the deck, swing in the hammock or sit around the fire bowl on a lazy afternoon.

And that’s not even to mention the starry night skies here!

However, if you visit during a rainy period, don’t worry because the yurt is cosy and filled with books to keep you entertained on even the rainiest of days.

What guests say: “Dave and Kate provided an absolutely amazing stay for us – chocolate brownies left out when we arrived, beautiful, soft robes for the quick walk to the shower in the morning, firewood, and fairy lights which automatically come on when it’s dark so you don’t have to scramble around with a torch at night. There wasn’t anything missing or lacking from our stay – the bed was super comfy and cosy, the soft rugs on the floor to sit by the fire, all lovely!”

20. The Nancy Blackett Shepherds Hut


Price per night: From £115 for 2 people

Location: Henley, Langport

Your surroundings won’t get much more idyllic than the ones you’ll find at The Nancy Blackett Shepherds Hut.

I mean not many people can say that they’ve woken up on their very own island before!

One of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset, this shepherds hut is perched on its own tiny island, completely surrounded by nature with a little wooden bridge to the mainland.

There’s so much to do here that I wouldn’t even know where to begin!

Whether you spend your time snoozing in the hammock, boating around the lake, cooking on the campfire or unwinding in the wood-fired hot tub, you’re guaranteed a good time here.

What guests say: “Beautiful, peaceful, secluded and private place for two. Perfect for relaxing and wildlife spotting. Really enjoyed our stay, made even better by the fantastic weather. We were planning on doing some walks but it was all so perfect that we chose to stay and enjoy the lovely setting. Enjoyed rowing on the lake, birdwatching, cooking on the fire pit and just relaxing in our own little private nature reserve.”

21. The Shepherds Hut Retreat


Price per night: From £136.50 for 2 people

Location: Roundham, Crewkerne

Okay, so the Shepherds Hut Retreat might just win the award for my favourite place to go glamping in Somerset.

I mean, the hot tub alone is enough to warrant a visit.

Could you think of a more idyllic setting to go for a dip?

From the modern and beautifully designed kitted-out interiors to the private woodland gardens with fire bowls to the lakeside hot tub and sauna, there are endless things to love about this place.

I promise it’s impossible to not fall head over heels for this retreat – and especially Shepherds Parlour!

What guests say: “Perfect luxury inside, with every attention to detail. Sumptuous bedding and throws, so cosy, everything I needed (and more!) in the kitchen, and the bathroom was such a treat to use, fantastic shower, and really lovely products! I could open the door and look at the lake and hear the wildlife. Beautiful decking area with comfy places to sit amongst the twinkly fairy lights. The bed was so comfortable, the TV and radio were easy to use, and of course the treat of the gin bar.”

22. Esme’s Escape Shepherds Hut


Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Haselbury Plucknett, Crewkerne

Esme’s Escape Shepherds Hut is multi-award-winning for a reason.

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque village of Haselbury Plucknett, the hut is perfectly situated in South Somerset to enjoy some of the UK’s best scenery!

There’s so much to love about this place.

An outdoor seating area with a log-fired hot tub, locally sourced breakfast ingredients, and a flushing loo and an electric shower.

Need I say more?

What guests say: “They have thought of EVERYTHING… down to the smallest of details and special touches. The homemade Christmas cake was delicious and the homemade sloe gin was perfect with the complimentary Prosecco. Breakfast was simply delicious and we had more than enough for our two mornings. We had takeaway from the White Horse (which was delicious) so we could make the most of the wood-fired hot tub.”

23. The Gardeners Shed


Price per night: From £105 for 2 adults and 2 children

Location: Winsham, Somerset

So The Gardener’s Shed may have the word ‘shed’ in its name but I can assure you that there’s a lot more glamour to this stay!

In fact, despite looking a little more rustic than some other glamping holidays in Somerset, it’s actually incredibly well-equipped.

There may be no Wi-Fi or a TV, but this simple cabin comes complete with a wood-burning stove, gas hobs, and an ensuite bathroom.

But let’s be honest, you come here for the gorgeous views down the Axe Valley.

They really are second to none!

What guests say: “We had a perfect time. The shed was lovely, comfortable and had a view that was out of this world. We loved having the animals so close around us – every morning being greeted by their lovely dog, the pigs, the hens, geese, sheep and cow! The vegetable garden was awe-inspiring and provided us with delicious suppers. Ed & Vicky felt like friends. It was perfect.”

24. Sawpits Wagon


Price per night: From £70 for 2 people

Location: King’s Stag, Sturminster Newton

Sawpits Wagon might just be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset for that decking alone!

I couldn’t think of many places more tranquil to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down.

Set in an idyllic part of an 1800 acre estate, you’ll have uninterrupted views over the countryside, ranging so wide that you can watch both the sunrise and sunset without moving an inch.

Once you’ve watched the sunrise, you can fry up your breakfast either on the gas hob or cook over the campfire!

What guests say: “A lovely get away from city life to a simplistic country stay with the luxury of a homely feel. Everywhere was exceptionally clean in the wagon and even the small touches of how well maintained the grounds around the wagon were kept really made the whole stay feel like something from a film. Jack was an excellent host who helped us with any little question or queries we had prior to our stay.”

25. The Secret Hideaway Yurt


Price per night: From £95 for 2 people

Location: Glastonbury, Somerset

Ever wanted to feel like a princess?

Well, if you go glamping at The Secret Hideaway you probably will do!

The lavish Indian themed interior of the 18ft yurt is cosy and snug while still feeling bright and airy too.

Inside you’ll find a king-sized double bed, twinkling lights, a log-burning stove, hot water bottles and sumptuous throws.

However, there’s more to the yurt than just what’s inside!

Situated just a ten-minute walk from the town centre of Glastonbury, The Secret Hideaway is a great base from which to visit local sites such as the Tor and The Abbey.

What guests say: “Would 100% recommend staying! Having booked this lovely yurt for my boyfriend’s birthday, Estelle and Malcolm were extremely thoughtful and had bought a bottle of prosecco for us when we arrived. The yurt itself is so unique, the bed is so comfy and being able to throw a log into the log burner for the evening makes it even cosier. Outside the yurt is an awesome little spot to have a drink and watch the sunset.”
