The Dome Garden, Gloucestershire
Collection of luxurious eco-domes set within the grounds of a stylish B&B in the heart of the Forest of Dean
Sleeps: up to 5 per dome
Tariff: From £375 per dome, midweek in low season
Note: Open from March to December
These eco-domes are spacious self-contained units up to 24ft in diameter with everything you need for a cool camping extravaganza.
The carpeted domes are set on solid timber decks and heated with woodburning stoves.
Outside, each unit has a small forest kitchen and a timber ensuite.
Hot water comes from a little wood burning boiler and is stored in recycled whisky barrels above each shower.
All of this surrounding a giant woodfired pizza oven in The Eden Lodge, a stylish organic B&B (available for those not quite brave enough to risk a night under canvas).
The Dome Garden is in the grounds of the B&B, and has direct access to the increasingly popular Sallowvallets off-road mountain biking area – 20 miles of tracks of different grades from family circuits to adrenalin pumping downhill single tracks.
Beyond that is 35 square miles of forest leading down to the River Wye.
So there’s loads to do and tons to see within just a couple of miles; canoeing, hiking and Llama trekking for the active, caves and castles, trains and teashops for everyone else.
