The Dome Garden
Best UK glamping Site?
Dome Garden is a unique collection of insulated domes formed into stylish, eco glamping lodges – a genuine, luxury camping village and one of the only planned glamping sites in the UK, with a careful blend of outdoor life and real luxury facilities.
This is not just a bunch of beds in pretty tents, stuck in the corner of a farmer’s field! NO! The 10 domes each have individual en-suites, flushing loos, proper beds, luxury linen and wood burning stoves. Everything you need for a fantastic luxury UK glamping break, and all right inside Gloucestershire’s Royal Forest of Dean, one of Britain’s biggest and most spectacular forests.
The Dome Garden is not a hotel – but it does have lovely linen, fine food and cool ensuites. Nor is it a campsite – but there are pegs and zips, with cosy fires and lots of canvas.
We think it is the benchmark for UK Glamping Sites. Luckily The Sunday Times, The Guardian, National Geographic, Cool Camping, and even Mumsnet, all agree, naming us ‘The Best UK Glamping site’ or in the ‘Top 5 Luxury Camping Sites in the UK’.
But you should be the judge of all this! Dig around here to see what’s going on, what people say & what makes us different. Then hit the ‘booking‘ tab to come glamping and see for yourself.
What is it?
UK Glamping Holidays for all
The Dome Garden is the last word in top class uk glamping holidays. Glamorous camping that really does what it says on the tin.
It’s set in the middle of the Ancient Forest of Dean and is a really cool collection of eco-conscious, geodesic domes, providing luxurious, partly self-catering, uk glamping holidays for groups of two to eight people.
It’s so ‘cool’ in fact that Cool Camping themselves reckoned “Kevin McCloud would say this place is, indeed, a work of Grand Design!
It has fires and stoves you light yourselves, it has pizza nights that make you want to go home and build your own oven. It has things to do and places to go and, if you don’t want to cook for yourselves, an informal cafe that provides random acts of casual gastronomy for discerning palates. As well as some ridiculously named bottles of wine; “Cote du Dome, anyone?”
No Place like Dome
The Domes are all designed as self- contained units. They range from 12ft to 24 ft across and are all equipped with everything you need for the coolest camping ‘ extravaganza.
They will comfortably take a family of four
or five, or six if you squeeze,
or two if you’re feeling romantic…
or just one if you’re feeling poetic!
(or have no friends)
What’s to do?
A little or a lot is the answer.
In and out of the Garden there’s a ton to see and a lot to do. But if that’s what you do all week then a little bit of nothing never hurt anyone either.
Take it easy. That’s our motto.
A time to commune, to read or just to doze about.
As the last light flickers in the sky at last you’ll have time to read ‘Sacred Geometry for Dummies’ or Katie Price’s latest biographical novel.
Maybe resurrect that old art of conversation so cruelly eradicated by the gramophone. You could play games, catch up on a bit of Mahler or simply indulge in a little philosophical reflection.
You could even knock on a neighboring dome and reacquaint yourselves with that nice couple you met whilst parked on the M4 when you ignored our advice about not travelling in rush hour!
But the best option is to sit and chat to the people you came with. It’s life affirming stuff this – to realise that you can actually talk to your kids and with a little poking they may even do more than grunt back!
There speaks a man with a bunch of teenage children!!
