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.

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!

Thank you for a fantastic stay

We were really disappointed when we could not book the star dome for the dates we wanted as it was so full up. However we were so lucky when the owner called us up to say that they had had a cancellation and we were the first on their 'cancellation list' so had first refusal of the dates. We were delighted! Kids were so excited and when we arrived we were blown away by it. The photos online don't reflect how beautiful it really is. Secluded, peaceful and although we had rain on the first day we arrived the second day was the best day so far this year - we really were very lucky. We watched the sunset with the kids in the hot tub and it was a truly magical family experience that we won't forget. would like to come back in the summer so we can see more stars at night. My son loves this place and is already asking when we can go back. Thank you fern and family for giving our family such special memories

Money well spent

We have just come back from a stay at the star dome and we cannot reccommend it highly enough. Owners were so warm and welcoming and Fern is just fantastic, there at the end of the phone whenever you need it. We loved the hot tub and the outdoor decking area. The fire pit when it starts to get dark is just amasing. The log burner is a new thing to us but now weve seen this one we have decided we want one in your house! Really did the job in the colder evenings. Stayed for 3 nights but would like to stay for more next year. Money well spent. Cannot wait to return. You guys are doing a fab job, will spread the word for you for sure. Amasing. Thanks again, Ben + Grace. x
