We loved this magical place. One adult, four wild boys, 13,12 and 2 X 9years! Den building, log burner lighting, lots of zip wire useage despite biblical amounts of rain , playing with chickens and playing on beautiful rustic swings... The pizzas and breakfasts were great and Diane an absolute gem... We shall return!

Really enjoyable glamping holiday. Beautiful place and brilliantly located as its not too far from a lot of good tourist attractions. Things i wish i had known before going: you are still basically camping - kettles are run by a fire so that was fiddly so next time i'll bring a travel kettle! Also bring toilet roll! We'll be going... More

Wanted a break that would be relaxing and take us away from it all. We got it! It was a real experience, absolutely brilliant. Fantastic domes, set in a brilliant site. So much thought has been put into making it what it is, and it has definitely paid off. The domes are fantastic, everything was so clean and tidy and... More

We had stayed here 3 years ago and thought the chance to go back and try a hobbity dome was too good to miss. I am so glad we did! Yes you have to heat your own water and your dome but that is half the fun of it! This time we cooked pancakes on our wood burner and I... More

We wanted a break that would be different, in touch with nature with us in charge, something that would pull our splintered recently bereaved family together and entertain the children. We arrived at this hidden oasis. strewn with spring flowers contrasting with space-like domes each set within an area of decking, a covered outside kitchen which was so well thought... More

Lovely location with a selection of individual domes. There was everything we needed - comfortable beds, great eating area and bathroom with its own wood burning stove. It is perfectly arranged so you can be social with others or have privacy. We had excellent home made pizzas.

An absolute cracking time, amazing place, really nice, like-minded fellow glampers to chat to and uber friendly staff. As it says at the top, Brilliant. The domes are very comfortable and spacious, the ensuite loos are a godsend (after all, who wants to go trogging off to some shared facility block on the other side of the site in the... More

We went to the Dome Garden for a long weekend with two other families who were staying in different Domes. The set up is amazing and like nothing else, and has bags of character! It is Glamping at its best, with lots of lovely ideas to make the visit special. You can 'split' your own logs to use either in... More

The good bits: 1. The site is wonderfully landscaped with beautiful trees (including a fabulous Monkey Puzzle and beautiful copper beech), bamboo, willow tunnels and plants. There are multiple swings and a zip wire for the kids, which our children loved. 2. The dome concept is great - very spacious, wacky and they look fabulous at night lit from inside.... More

Hi Rich. Thanks for your comments. Really glad you enjoyed the bits you enjoyed, but obviously less pleased about the bits you didn't. So here's a few thoughts. First off, VALUE FOR MONEY. Always an issue here as we are one of the more expensive (but by no means the most expensive) glamping sites in the country. The dome you... More
