"Great for kids of all ages!…"
We have stayed at the Dome Garden twice now and it doesn't disappoint. Yes, you will have to make your bed, chop your firewood and make fires to cook your food and heat your water but that is all part of the experience! The domes are cosy and private but you can't get away from the fact that this place has been designed with kids in mind and pretty soon there will be a gang of them playing together and in and out of all the space. Pizza night and the fire pit mean that you too will probably end up chatting to your neighbours and enjoying the very relaxed vibe here. Our kids are 8 and 9 and both times we have been there has been a range from small toddlers up to teenagers but they all seem to play well together and we have pretty much left ours to their own devices. We noticed that this year they have added hobbit houses which are half buried in the ground with small windows. I had a quick peek in one and it looked really cosy, if a bit dark, but the couple staying in it thought it was wonderful and very romantic so we might be tempted to try one next time. We have only stayed for weekends so far but there is so much to do in the area that I think we will also book for longer next time. After some fairly dreadful camping trips, I'm not so scared now of the risk of bad weather as the domes are very warm and you could get by without having to cook a single meal if you wanted but we quite like the funny little rocket stoves. They do work well once you get used to them! We will definitely go back, not least because the children are begging us to rebook!Read moreLess
"Totally awesome glamping, first rate relax for mum and top notch for boy of 7…"
This is the best place in the UK for a proper glamp! Pyromania for four days and safe as houses! The domes are huge and whilst you get all the fresh air and exercise you sleep in a proper bed and are treated to the best service and smiles you can imagine! Highly recommend for families!Read moreLess

"Stunning --great for relaxing and for the kids .…"
Wow --absolutely stunning. The dome garden exceeded all our expectations. They have got the combination of get away from it all / rustic and luxurious comfort absolutely right.
As an exhausted single professional mum with two kids I was looking for a relaxing comfortable chill out weekend. Our dome was gorgeous with very comfortable beds and lovely crisp white linen. We even had a bath in our bathroom .
The kids had a ball, they played with the other kids on the site on the swings, tree house, zip wire...computers and phones forgotten . They loved making the fire to heat the water and cook.
I was a little anxious about going on my own but was made to feel so welcome by Jonny and Helen and the other guests.The sat night al fresco pizza night was a lovely evening as all the guests sit together at a big table and I enjoyed chatting with like minded people . After we lit a fire and chatted around it .
We will definitely be back. Thanks !Read moreLess
