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. 

All well behaved dogs are welcome at an additional charge of £10.00 per dog. Dogs are not permitted on furniture. All guests bringing dogs are required to sign our dog policy before checking in.

Wonderful visit to the Star Dome

What a wonderful experience. It was quite cold but the dome has all the extras to keep you as warm and cosy as possible. Electric blanket was a life saver and loved fluffy robes and hot water bottle touches. Board games, hot tub, warm fire, king size bed, comfy chairs, outside decking area with a fire pit...what more do you need? Lovely welcome from the host and cant wait to come back when its a little warmer.

Really special one night stay, cant wait to return!

We had a wonderful time here and only wish we had booked for longer. No rain, and a very lovely still night which allowed us to sit outside until late and watched the stars. We weren't brave enough to use the BBQ but the fish an chip shop at the top of the road is great! Hot tub was incredible, only wish we could have stayed in longer but outside was so cold it cooled the water down quite fast (not a complaint, just one of those things). Our Leo had alovelu time exploering the woods and sniffing everything.Would recommend to everyone, not many places like this and run by such a genuine family. We will see you again in the summer fern!

Idyllic stay in the star dome

We have had an amazing time during our stay making lots of memories. We haven't gone out anywhere as its so idyllic, we were able to shut ourselves off from the real world. Thank you Fern so very much! Now to book out next stay here :)

Faultless stay, thank you Fern!

We have had a wonderful stay. Very peaceful and secluded, the weather was terrible, windy and rainy the whole time but the dome is in a sheltered place away from the worst of it. The view is amasing and we managed to keep mostly warm and cosy despite the low temperatures and damp outside. All the facilities are excellent, convenient and everything you require. Fern is a very welcoming, and excellent host and provided us with all the info we needed well in advance , you can tell that she really wants you to have a nice break, including the dog. Thank you very much for a wonderful get away. I'm sure we will come back again, maybe in warmer weather to enjoy all the whole camping experience.

Best place on earth!! Amasing! so happy!

We booked the dome after seeing it on facebook and we had such an amasing time. Colder than other times of the year but the dome was mostly cosy and warm, the electric blanket was a life saver. Fern was a very accommodating host and loved our dog Bruno. We would love to come back in the summer time when everything is greener and we can have a go on the BBQ. would be like paradise. Thank you Fern, will be back again soon x

The Star Dome is amazing, very warm and cosy. Loved all the small touches, ie hot water bottles, dressing gowns. So peaceful and secluded the view is beautiful.

Magical family Christmas getaway

We had a relaxing stay at the star dome. Noah really enjoyed star watching whilst in the hot tub and was amazed by the shooting stars that he saw. We can't wait to come back again.
