Luxury glamping spots in the UK we’re booking into

Secret Meadows

Whether you’re after a luxury two-floor safari-style tent, gypsy caravan or ornate shepherd’s hut, Secret Meadows in Woodbridge is the perfect spot to spend a few days reconnecting with nature and your surroundings. 

Tucked surrounded by 115 acres of woodland in Woodbridge, Suffolk, a stay at Secret Meadows certainly isn’t glamping done by halves. It’s glamorous and stylish and will whisk you away into your own secret world. We love the luxury lodge tents on site. Sleeping up to six people, the tents are filled with all of your essential necessities and more, creating your very own home away from home experience. Seriously, you’ll even have your own four-poster bed.

Trecombe Lakes

Think nine acres of beautiful rolling Cornish countryside and you’ve got Trecombe Lakes. 

Set just a short drive from the artsy seaside town of Falmouth, Trecombe Lakes is home to bougee glamping pods and luxury lodges that’ll see you stepping up from your usual camping game to a whole new level. The lakeside lodges are perfect for a family getaway or a weekend with friends, sleeping up to six, and house a roaring log burner, wooden kitchen area and even come equipped with a log fired contemporary Swedish hot bath on the large decking area outside. It’s incredibly modern but you’ll still get the thrill of upmarket camping too.

Wolf Wood Treehouse

This is certainly glamping at its best, but you’ll still need to channel your inner adventurer as you head out into the wilderness of Devon for a rural retreat at Wolf Wood Treehouse. 

Nuzzled in the heart of Devon, Wolf Wood stretches over 13 acres of woodland that’s hidden deep amongst a valley. Each of the treehouses are situated on their own tree canopy, overlooking the rolling hills of Devon. Each treehouse comes equipped with its own unique features, some house jacuzzis, others are home to side-by-side bathes perched on their decking, making them the prime position for star gazing. It’s a truly magical spot.

Bentley’s Frenchmoor 

When you’re stuck in the grind of city life, it’s hard to imagine there’s a spot somewhere in the UK that’s quiet, peaceful and isn’t bursting with city folk, but venture out of the big smoke and to Bentley’s Frenchmoor in Hampshire and you’ll soon find yourself a slice of heaven.

Home to eight acres of greenery that’s adjacent to the 1,700-acre Bentley Wood in West Tytherley, it’s easy to see why owners Peter and Georgie picked this spot to start their shepherd’s hut business. The luxury shepherd’s hut provides a great alternative to the camping lark and will see you surrounded by fields of wonder (and maybe the occasional alpaca or two).

Brook House Woods

There are some buildings that stop you in your tracks and make you imagine what life would be like living inside them. In most instances, it’s the interiors or beautiful exterior of a building, but in this case, it was the red tent that’s tucked high above the ground at Brook House Woods.

Set in the heart of Herefordshire, Brook House Woods is home to several glamping spots from treehouses to hobbit-style houses, but we want to draw your attention to Goji the tree tent. You’d typically expect a tent to be pegged to the ground, that’s not the case for the goji tree tent. It’s pinned between two ash trees and one oak over a bluebell woodland. When staying here, you’ll be settling in for a night of stargazing as you look out through the glass roof, or wandering below to the Wilding camp, where you’ll fit a fire pit and pizza oven available to use. It’s the perfect place to relax in the deep wilderness and forget about the city pressures that you’ve left behind.
