Luxurious bell tent glamping in an idyllic meadow – Herefordshire Glamping is the very essence of rest & relaxation

Sun-drenched, yellow-dappled wildflower meadows; lush undulating fields of green; bejewelled dragon-flies performing feats of aerial mastery – the Herefordshire countryside is just so utterly, absurdly idyllic. No area typifies this more than the little pockets of pastoral perfection to the south-west of Leominster. Just south of the River Arrow, outside the larger village of Ivington, lies the dainty (or should that be 'perfectly proportioned') Aulden, home to the county's best kept secret, Herefordshire Glamping.      

Nestled within this bucolic bolthole, Herefordshire Glamping is three acres of rolling meadows a stone's throw from the tranquil babbling of Honeylake Brook. Wild and buttercup-strewn in the spring, soft and well-kempt in the summer, this truly is a camping field for all seasons.

The twin five-metre bell tents are pristine, airy and spacious. Both come fully equipped with all you can need for both a night of sweet repose (kingsize beds, cosy duvets, feather pillows and a toasty wood-burner) and a leisurely rise (toaster, cafetière and "proper coffee").

The quality of of service at Herefordshire Glamping is conscientious to the last. Chirpy hosts Moira and David are on hand to help with everything from a directions to the Welsh Marches to the correct pronunciation of nearby Shrewsbury (only the non-natives call it "Shrowsbury"), to a lend of a corkscrew for that (second) chilled bottle of Chardonnay on your very own veranda.  

The pace of life is lazy here and that's the way it should be. Surveying the rolling fields, with the scent of Ludlow sausages wafting from the grill, the heady vows to "leave it all behind" are almost palpable in this quintessentially English of scenes.

Details

Facilities

Two large 5m bell tents. Both are fully furnished with kingsize beds, feather duvets, pillows and have wood-burning stoves. Shared shower, loos and fully-equipped kitchen area with everything you need – cafetieres, a kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave with crockery and cutlery galore. Even though you are spending nights under canvas, there is a heated shower room and proper flushing loos and somewhere to plug in the hair straighteners. No electricity in tents but plenty of power points in converted stable. Raised wooden decking has table and chairs outside. No campfires but we do have firepits.

Suitable For

Glamping families and couples – yes.  We love a celebration stay and we are a popular spot for birthdays, anniversaries and mini-moons. We've even been witness to three engagements. Dogs – no. Sorry. We have two cats who would pack up and leave home as well as assorted chickens, ducks and sheep. Small groups by pre-arrangement. We only have two tents so we're perfect for a site takeover if you want to get away as a family or small group of friends.

We don't host weddings or parties.

Nearby

The historic Wye market town of Ludlow boasts an enchanting mix of medieval and Tudor architecture. Try and visit for the annual Ludlow Arts Festival every June. Vibrant cathedral city Hereford has a wealth of gorgeous Jacobean attractions – be sure to drop by The Old House (01432 260694) and The Hereford Cider Museum (01432 354207). The site is ideally placed to acces the Black and White Trail and numerous other walking and cycling routes. Berrington Hall, Croft Castle and Hampton Court Castle are all fabulous NT properties with beautiful grounds. Pretty market town of Ledbury is about thirty minutes away. Hereford Cathedral with it's world famous Mappa Mundi and the Cider Museum are great for overcast days. Malvern and the home of Elgar are about 40 minutes away with the Malvern Hills a popular place to walk.

Food & Drink

Both tents have their own BBQ for grilling some of those famous Herefordshire burgers. There's plenty of decent pubs nearby. The White Swan (01544 388635) in Eardisland is a classic village pub with a friendly, welcoming vibe. The Royal Oak Hotel (01568 612610) in Leominster does a great carvery. This part of the world is famous for it's ales. Be sure to sample a drop of Weston's 'Butty Bach' – Welsh for "little mate". The Wharton Court Food Centre- who do great breakfasts- is a couple of miles away too. The Stagg at Titley was, in 2001,  the first pub to be awarded a Michelin star which it has retained. It is advisable to book well in advance if you would like to eat in the restaurant but the bar is always open! Ludlow has La Becasse – another award winning restaurant – but there are plenty of simpler places to eat in easy reach if you fancy just fish and chips and a pint!

Opening Times

April – end of September.

Accommodation

Two canvas bell tents set on wooden decks- far enough apart to be private but close enough for groups of friends to get together.

David & Moira are your hosts and we actively encourage you to put away the phone - sit, chat, have a glass of wine and just catch your breath. There are just two tents set in three acres of beautiful, peaceful Herefordshire countryside where the only noise you'll probably hear are birds, or cows munching in the field next door.

We make up a proper king sized bed with white cotton bed linen and snuggly feather duvets along with towels, glasses, crockery, cutlery and lots of kitchen utensils.The kitchen has a fridge, toaster, microwave -all you need to bring are your toothbrush and a good book.The tents have wood burners and the bathroom has proper flushing loos and a hot shower. No compost toilets here!  There isn't electricity in the tents but there are sockets in the kitchen for phones & hair straightners - you are Glamping after all!

Getting There

Situated in the peaceful Herefordshire countryside between the teeny villages of Ivington and Aulden. About ten miles from Hereford and the same from Ludlow. Five miles west of Leominster (say 'Lemster' or the locals will look at you oddly!)

If you feel like easing your way off the chairs, there are lots of local walks, stunning National Trust properties nearby, the famous Black and White trail or you could head off for foodie adventures in Hereford or Ludlow – both are around 13 miles away. And don’t forget – you are in the home of proper cider so it would be rude not to visit a couple of local producers while you are here.

The nearest railway station is Leominster. Moira  or David are happy to pick you up.
