UK Glamping as it was supposed to be
Dome Garden is a real Luxury Camping Village. It’s a proper uk glamping site with a thoughtful blend of outdoor life and real luxury facilities. It’s not just some pretty tents with a few beds, stuck up in a field!
It is a unique collection of insulated Geodomes formed into stylish, eco glamping lodges. Each of the ten domes have individual private en-suites, flushing loos, proper beds, luxury linen and wood burning stoves. That’s everything you need for a fantastic luxury UK glamping break inside Gloucestershire’s Royal Forest of Dean.
The Dome Garden is not a hotel – but it does have lovely linen, great food and cool ensuites. It’s not a campsite – but there are pegs and zips, with cosy fires and lots of canvas.
We think it is the benchmark for UK Glamping Sites. Luckily The Sunday Times, The Guardian, National Geographic and Cool Camping all pretty much agree. They’ve all listed us as ‘The Best UK Glamping site’ or in the ‘Top 5 Luxury Camping Sites in the UK’.
Yes, it is a bit early, but we have just four spaces left throughout the whole of the May half term. So, if you’re thinking of a spring time adventure with the kids, now’s the time to jump on the bandwagon!!

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
The countdown to Glamping for 2014 has begun, with plenty to be getting on with before we start up again at the beginning of April.
There will be new domes to replace a couple that are drifting past their sell by date. There are already new kitchens, with better seating areas. The new bar in the main lodge is under construction and the deck covers are being extended to make even more space for eating and drinking.
The Domitories are being extended and we are adding new rising doubles. Fingers crossed, the long awaited hobbity style domes for couples and two B&B rooms in the main lodge, should all be finished by the late spring.
All that is happening over the next couple of months so it’s no surprise that we’ve closed for the winter.
We’re still here though so if you’d like to book a glamping break for 2014 and see what The “Best Uk Glamping site” is all about or come back for your second, third or fourth or even fifth visit then it all starts with an email or a simple click here to enquire about availability!
