The canvas glamping tents at Cotswold Farm Park each boast king-sized beds and a single bunk bed; fresh linen, a personal barbeque and seating area; as well as crockery and cutlery.
The Dome Garden is the epitome of luxury camping, with eco-lodges boasting individual en-suites with flushing loos, wood fired showers or baths, proper beds, luxury linen and a wood burning stove.
What’s more, nestled in the heart of the Forest of Dean guests can tuck into sensational wood-fired food pizzas and even enjoy a breakfast platter filled with artisan produce.
