We began our Glamping business in the summer of 2015 with 1 Belltent sleeping just 2 but have grown due to the demand for larger group bookings who want to gather in the peace and tranquillity of our secluded site but still within reach of a host of local facilities such as in Glastonbury and other places of interest in Somerset.
Our Glamping facilities are high quality and comfortable and when you book your stay here you can be confident that we re-invest available money into our nature reserve with wildflower field, wildlife pond and woodland surrounding the site to benefit wildlife and enhance the environment. We are off grid with electricity provided by solar power and a diesel generator which is enough for everyday use and we use eco products where possible.
In addition to our basic Glamping package of the 5 Belltents sleeping up to 20 we can add an extra 6M Belltent sleeping up to 4 and 2 Crash Pads which are like American covered wagons on legs not wheels with double mattresses in which can be added to the site. There is also 1 smaller Belltent with 2 single beds in and a 1960’s Vintage Sprite 400 caravan which can also be added anywhere on site for 2 people. It has a lovely summer themed interior, queen size mattress (4 feet wide, 6 feet long), small dining area, fridge, gas hob, kettle, crockery, cutlery etc all in keeping with the vintage theme and an awning outside for a real retro experience.
This would bring the total in this area to 32.
Added to this we have our Log Cabin which sleeps up to 5 and we can add an extra 6M Belltent outside sleeping up to 4 to bring the overall total on site to 41. Any additional guests can bring their own camping facilities such as tents or camper vans which will be charged per unit per night.
This provides for a very flexible bespoke Glamping experience.
We have lists of Activities which other Groups have used for entertainment whilst here and we can recommend caterers, additional toilets, bar hire etc for larger Group bookings and Weddings.
We are within easy reach of the A303 and A37 and half an hour from the M5 as well as close to Castle Cary or Bruton stations.

Yet our site is peaceful and secluded with stunning views to Glastonbury Tor making it a great place to escape from busy lives.
