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.

Luxury site that sets the bar VERY HIGH

We had a fabulous time here at the Star Dome . We are glad we found this hidden gem online. It was our first time glamping and this luxury site has definatlely set high standards for the future! The fire kept us warm and cosy alongside the heated blanket. Glad we paid for the extra for the hot tub which we used at night to star gaze. Absolutely loved our stay and can't thank the hosts Fern and Penny enough. We will be back for sure!!
