The Details...

Take a walk through the ancient paths of Gloucestershires Forest of Dean and when you come across The Dome Garden you might not believe what you see. As sprung up amongst this mystical and historical woodland is a futuristic, eco-community that is a glamping haven. With space-age dome shelters to rest your head in, you can leave your gadgets behind and prepare for adventure.

The eleven luxury domes are located in a secret, forest clearing and have a communal village-feel and a friendly atmosphere. Children can run around all day long, collecting fresh eggs from the chickens or exploring the weird and wonderful features. A tree swing provides hours of entertainment, along with a small zip wire and a magical treehouse. Bike trails can also keep the kids out of trouble, while you relax in your dome or venture off into the forest.

Each of the domes has a contemporary style with green Astroturf floors and a chic, modernist vibe. Some have super-cool canvas beds hanging down from the ceilings, while others have comfy mattresses and swinging platforms. Ranging from 12ft to 24ft in size, they can fit groups of between two and eight inside.

Whichever dome you pick you are sure for a surprise as there are all sorts of fun and quirky features inside. Colour-changing lamps give out an eerie night-time glow and are joined by wood-burning fires that keep you cosy and warm. Rocket stoves and storm kettles can make al fresco cooking seem like an occasion, while the unique sleeping arrangements take things to another level. Deluxe en-suite bathrooms are also part of the package and include DIY hot water showers and flushing toilets.
Once youve mastered the art of rocket cooking and daily fire-making there is plenty to see and do in the local area.

Hiking, biking, canoeing and caving are all on your doorstep, along with bird watching and woodland walking. The magnificent Forest of Dean is all around you and has centuries old myths and legends to tell. Explore its mysterious fauna and flora and its fantastical tree formations and youll feel like youve stepped into a forgotten era.

At night-time you can chill-out beneath starry night skies, swapping camp stories by the communal fire. A pop-up restaurant also appears every few days and includes a popular pizza parlour with hands-on cooking activities.
