Dome Garden is a luxurious, purpose built, UK glamping site with a unique collection of 11 insulated geodesic domes. These are space age, eco-lodges formed into a genuine, luxury camping village with a stylish blend of outdoor life, environmental principles and real luxury facilities.
All the domes have individual en-suites with flushing loos and wood fired showers or baths. They have proper beds, luxury linen and wood burning stoves – everything you need for a fantastic UK glamping break inside Gloucestershire’s Royal Forest of Dean, England’s biggest and most spectacular forest.
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’s the benchmark for UK Glamping Sites. 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’.
Summer season creaking to a halt now! So thoughts turning to Autumn and the Half term… September weekends very busy now but easing up later in the month.
They say a picture paints a thousand words.
Well, if that is true, here’s a novel’s worth of them – a small selection of our favourite moments from the last year or so at the Dome Garden.

Strictly speaking, ‘glamping’ comes from a concoction of the words ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’, a superior ‘luxury camping’ experience way above the standard campsite.
But, let’s face it, it’s not a pretty word is it? And there are side effects; the spawning of variants like ‘to glamp’ and the catchall ‘glampsite’ makes you realise why it never existed before!
Other efforts included ‘camping 2.0′ – but no-one really understood what that referred to. ‘Camping with style’ is popular in South Africa, whilst in Germany ‘furnished camping’ seems to be on the up… Globally though ‘glamping’ is king with Ireland and the US now firmly on board.tell me more
Nearly done now for the year, so just a few spots to grab before we shut up shop for the winter…
(Updated before breakfast on 18th OCt)
Last Few Options…
The weekdays are now very quiet, so plenty of choice. Weekends are a bit busier –
They go like this…
Fri 21st Oct Weekend, 1st half term slot, 3 nights – domes about half full still lots of space.
Mon 24th Oct Midweek, 2nd half term slot, 3 nights – 2 Hobbities, 2 lodge rooms.
Thu 27th Oct Weekend – last half term block, 4 nights for the price of 3 – Superdome, 2 Simple domes, Double dome , 1 hobbit, 1 lodge room.
This year we were meant to be closing on the 31st October but we do now have a couple of new bookings, so the 4th November is also an option.
Then we’re done!!
So, if you’re thinking about any of the slots we have left, as we say every year, DON’T HANG ABOUT!
