Sociable glamping from an award-winning yurt and tipi group, surrounded by some of Somerset's top attractions

When you think of the faces behind Glastonbury you often think of the famous headliners, but the glampers of Glastonbury will owe their experiences to the owners of Hearthworks and Pilton Yurt Camps, Tara and her family. Supplying the tipis and yurts for Glastonbury for the last fifteen years (as well as other festivals) earned them the award of the UK’s best glamping supplier, so it’s fair to say you’ll be in safe hands throughout your stay at their new, summertime glamping site just five minutes' drive down the road from the festival site.

Combining all the glam and views of Glastonbury with a peaceful country setting, Pilton Yurt Camps is an ideal base for gathering with friends and having your own bit of festival-esque fun. Rather than letting out each of the yurts and tipis individually, Tara has grouped some together in mini glamping 'villages' making the site ideal for groups of friends having a long-awaited get together. Inside each yurt there are proper king-sized beds and soft-furnishings, while the villages also come with a yurt kitchen and dining space, with a fridge, stove and all the other bits and bobs you’ll need to impress your fellow glampers at mealtimes.

For ingredients, it's two miles to Thorner’s Farm Shop or, in the opposite direction, the site is a scenic walk or cycle away from the picturesque village of Pilton, where there's a Co-Op, a good pub and a beautiful Normal church. It's by car that you'll really see how much is on your doorstep however. Glastonbury Tor, Wookey Hole, Nunney Castle, Kilver Court and the cathedral and Bishops Palace in Wells are all within around 15 minutes of your camp. Tour them all over the course of several days or stay put, grab a drink and relax in the sun with all your friends. Your time here is whatever you want to make it and, once you truly de-stress, you may find you never go too far at all.



We are offering an authentic glamping experience with all of the modern necessities, you can have the full satisfaction of staying in either a Tipi or a Yurt yet still have access to Wifi. From peaceful nights sat by the fire to beautiful bright mornings, both dawn and dusk offer an amazing selection of wildlife. A perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle that the city seems to bring for a calm, harmonious atmosphere that is always here in the countryside.

Each individual unit provides you with your own cosy space to enjoy the serenity that comes with being in the countryside. We have the option of both Tipis and Yurts available for two people, these come fully furnished including power and an outdoor fire pit. All of the individual accommodation options have shared bathroom facilities, including hot showers so you can start your day right.

Our Yurt camps come with a fully kitted kitchen dining Yurt, a cosy Tipi lounge with an open fire, a master bedroom Yurt and two further bedroom Yurts. There is a hot water shower, a compost toilet and an outdoor fire.
