Nestled in a private wooded glade watch the dawn spill sunshine over the patchwork of fields spread out in the valley below and then at dusk, as the warm glow of the log fire breaks through the night, gaze at the ever changing panorama of the sky through our star gazing window.

Our star dome offers the simple joys of the great outdoors; designed for nature cravers, adventure chasers, peace and quiet seekers, star gazers and memory makers. It offers an enriched way to explore nature close up with amenities you would expect to find in a deluxe hotel: well-appointed beyond your expectations.

When you gather around the camp fire, there is a special sense of companionship and an atmosphere of relaxation - every moment is transformed into a magical experience. The Star dome features a natural fire with warming flames creating a cosy atmosphere without irritating sparks or smoke. Easy to use...a push of a button is all it takes to create a warming fire and a stylish ambiance.

This luxurious glamping accommodation features a king size bed with plush pillows and a luxuriously cosy duvet, a full sized dining table and chairs, outside furniture, a luxurious Scandinavian wood fired hot tub (love tub, extra charge), BBQ, and a private bathroom with a steaming hot shower, a flushing toilet and convenient kitchenette.

Magical one night stay

Managed to get a one night stay here, more expensive but better than paying for 2 nights we couldn't make due to work. Hot tub hot on arrival, log burner roaring, lovely welcome from Fern and a stunning place to stay for the night, what more can you ask for? Our dog Dexter loved the woods and we had a lovely walk around the woodland as the sun was setting. Photos don't do this place justice and can't wait to return in the summer for a longer break. Maybe the Tree Dome next time! Thank you Fern for this wonderful experience.

Thank you Fern and Penny for an amazing stay!!! The Star Dome is well equipped and beautifully presented. We made good use of the log burner and we couldn't get over the amount of stars we saw last night. We would recommend this experience to anyone and hope to visit again in the nearer future.

The perfect Mini-Moon, the most special start to married life...BOOK IT YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!

We have had an amazing Mini-Moon!!! Such peace and relaxation! Everything has been perfect including the weather, 22 degrees in October - who knew! What a way to start married life :). We loved our very own 'sky full of stars' - cosying up by the firepit and chilling in the hot tub. We will definitely be back!! With our little one as she would love it so much. I think a girly weekend would be good too! Will definitely recommend this hidden gem, and memories to last forever....THANK YOU Fern and Family xxx

Unique and relaxing visit to the Star Dome!

We had a lovely and relaxing time. Snuggly and wrapped up in the Star Dome while the wind and rain came down. The hot tub was amazingly perfect to chill with a drink and watch the clouds roll over. Peaceful and lovely, just what we needed. Thank you! x

One night stay, great for doggies!

What a great place the star dome is. Crumble loved her time here too. You'll need to order more logs for the colder nights which can be expensive when added up - you can bring your own as long as they are kiln dried so may be worth doing this in colder seasons. Nonetheless had a great stay, thank you.
