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, £65.00 extra charge), BBQ, and a private bathroom with a steaming hot shower, a flushing toilet and convenient kitchenette.

Spur of the moment booking...NO REGRETS!!!

We had a spur of the moment visit after seeing it on Facebook! Fantastic place! Loved it! The dogs loved the woods too! Had a job trying to get out of bed in the morning with a roaring fire and electric blanket! Lovely - thanks!

One night stay deal really worth it...amasing :)

I booked the Star Dome on a 'one night stay deal' I saw advertised on Facebook. It was very much an impulsive booking but I am so glad I did it. Fern was so helpful and replied to messages almost instantly and got me the date (I believe I was on a waiting list to get it!). I only live in Ludlow but at this place you could be anywhere. My girlfriend was over the moon, she had seen it on Facebook herself and had been hassling me for ages to book, very surprised when I led her down the path blindfolded! We spent the evening in the hot tub looking at the stars and then wrapped up on the sofas outside with the fire. Honestly one of the most magical moments we have spent together. Thank you Fern for giving us this special memory. Will be recommending your place to friends and family and hopefully will come back to try the Tree Dome - looks ace!

11 year Wedding Anniversary!

We stayed at in the star dome for one night for our wedding anniversary. The whole place was stunning. It’s decor inside is lovely and It had a very cosy and romantic feel. Penny was very helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. I was worried that it might get cold but the burner did an amazing job and kept us warm all night. I can’t recommend this place enough. We hope to visit again! We will take the kids next time as there’s 2 fold down beds and there’s lots to do on your doorstep. Thanks very much for a fabulous stay. Truly 5*
