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.

December mini break

The most beautiful and peaceful December mini break! We absolutely loved the quirkiness of the wood fired hot tub, even in the rain! Nice festive touches inside the dome and a very friendly welcome. Thank you!

Just perfect!

Wow! Just perfect! We have been celebrating a special birthday and could not have had a more special day. The Dome is amasing and despite the weather we braved the hot tub which was fantastic. Will definitely come back in the summer. Thanks x

Stunning few days

We have had the most amasing, relaxing time at the star dome. The dogs have loved being able to have a good run around in the fields. The hot tub is a brilliant addition once we worked out how to get it going! We have been really lucky with the weather and would love to come back in the summer to make the most of the woodland and the beautiful scenery! Thank you so much - see you soon.
