All of the glamping pods are named after local birds and painted in beautiful colours.

Falcon glamping pod has its own private hot tub, an ensuite toilet and its own shower.
With views over the rolling hills, you can enjoy the sunset in your hot tub with a glass of bubbly or a cold beer in hand.
Falcon is also dog friendly, so your furry friend can join your UK glamping weekend too!
Even better, the onsite Hayshed Café Bar offers homemade tapas grazing boxes delivered to your door, with veggie and vegan options available too.

Ever fancied treehouse glamping in the UK?
If so you HAVE to check out the Wee Tree Howf in Scotland, offering the most unique and cool glamping experience.
The Wee Tree Howf offers one of the best glamping holidays in the UK with hot tubs.
The luxury treehouse stay is really special, with a gorgeous wood-panelled bedroom, a living room with a wood-fired stove, a spacious kitchen and a private bathroom.
The private terrace looks out over the small loch, and the wood-fired hot tub is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the rolling hills.
Have no doubt, the Wee Tree Howf is one of the most dreamy places to go glamping in the UK.
3. Wingbury Farm Glamping
For the best glamping near London, you can’t beat Wingbury Farm Glamping.
Located in the stunning Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the trio of luxury glamping pods on the farm have uninterrupted views of the hills from their private terraces.
The pods have a double bed and a double sofa bed, as well as a dining area, fitted kitchen and ensuite bathroom.
The outdoor decks have a BBQ and fire pit for those long summer evenings spent with a chilled glass of wine in hand.

4. The Hilltop Hideaway
The Hilltop Hideaway is the best place to stay in a glamping dome in the UK.
The luxury glamping pod is found secluded in a field with its own hot tub in County Down.
With modern wood-panelled features, an ensuite wet room and a cosy double bed, you have everything you need for a cosy UK glamping weekend.
My favourite thing about this glamping dome is the floor to ceiling glass doors, which means you wake up to the most beautiful sunrise over the rolling hills.
This is also the best glamping on Airbnb UK, but not something to be booked last minute because the Hilltop Hideaway is very popular.
For those who love tranquillity and relaxation, this is one of the best glamping spots in the UK.
5. Lydcott Glamping
UK glamping has long been associated with a couples getaway, but did you know that in Cornwall you can stay in a family glamping pod that sleeps 6 people?!
Lydcott Glamping offers the best UK glamping for families, having built big pods in a beautiful rural farm location.
The ‘Proper Job’ Cabin is the biggest glamping pod on offer, with 2x king beds and a double sofa bed.
Complete with an ensuite shower room, a kitchen/living area, a dining area with sea views and a terrace with a hammock and outdoor seating, this luxury glamping site has everything you need for a weekend away with the kids.
Alternatively, the ‘Clotted Cream’ cabin has 2x king beds, whilst the ‘Jam First’ cabin has 1x king bed and a double sofa bed.
Think you would prefer that romantic couples glamping trip instead? Don’t worry! The ‘Prosecco’ cabin is the perfect size for two with a king size bed.
Regardless, Lydcott Glamping is undoubtedly the best glamping in South England.
It’s also one of the best glamping sites near a beach, just a 9 minute drive from the lovely Seaton Beach.
6. Berllan @ Gelli Glamping
Gelli Glamping is the best glamping site in Wales.
Found in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park, ‘Berllan’ is one of the best glamping tents in the UK, with its own wood fired hot tub.
The bell tent actually sleeps six, with a king sized bedroom, a king size cabin bed and two single beds.
This makes Gelli Glamping a great UK glamping site for families.
Berllan is also fully equipped with a kitchen, bathroom and living/dining area, but the top thing about this glamping spot is the panoramic views over the national park.
If you love hiking, mountain biking or simply being surrounded by nature, then Gelli Glamping is the best place to go glamping in the UK.
7. The 5* Glamping Hut
The 5* Glamping Hut is a gorgeous little shepherd’s hut in North Yorkshire with everything you need for a UK glamping break.
The shepherd’s hut is found on its own in a farmer’s field, offering a really tranquil spot surrounded by nature.
Inside, the hut has everything you need for a glamping experience, including a fully fitted kitchen, a breakfast bar, an ensuite shower room and an L-shape sofa which converts into a big comfy bed.
This is also the best dog friendly glamping in the UK, because your furry friends can enjoy running around in the private garden of the hut.
Located in the charming rural village of Staveley, a short walk will take you to ‘The Royal Oak’ country pub, whilst the historic town of Knaresborough is just a 10 minute drive away.
