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. 

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.

such a special place, thank you for sharing this with us

woodland escapes is a really unique place and is run by delightful people. for our anniversary we enjoyed watching the stars from the hot tub and spending the days walking in the fields and the woods. it was nice to just switch off and this place is idyllic and quiet and just absolutely beautiful. we loved listening to the owls and the birds and we have already booked to return again in september this year and march next year. found a gem here and am gutted we didn't book more than 2 nights! Thank you fern and family, will see you in September....

Potential disaster saved by the cosy fire and hot water bottles

Warm, wonderful welcome initially until the weather turned for the worst . However the dome kept us dry and the fire and hot water bottles saved the day. Wood fired bath was brilliant! Thanks!
