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’.
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
