Boutique woodland camping with beautiful yurts and bell tents.

With a name like Plush Tents Glamping, we were hoping for some serious creature comforts at this glamping getaway in West Sussex... and we weren't disappointed. Nestled in woodland at the foot of the South Downs and close to the historic city of Chichester, this small but perfectly formed off-the-grid campsite at Densworth Farm offers beautiful yurts and bell tents set amongst trees and wild flowers in a picture-perfect spot. 

With a range of different sized canvas creations to everyone from suit camping couples to families of up to four, each 'plush tent' comes lovingly prepared and waiting for you on arrival, complete with proper beds and all the bedding. For large groups there's the Mongolian-style Family Yurt decorated with ceiling drapes, natural coir flooring, scatter cushions, cosy blankets and an oak double bed (plus two floor mattresses that are ideal for kids). The antique wood burning stove adds to the authenticity and a hamper with tea and coffee making kit is an added thoughtful touch. The Family Bell tent is decorated with natural coir flooring, a memory foam mattress on futon base with two floor mattresses for the children. The tent is equipped with a coffee table, torch and sheepskin rug. There is also a smaller Friends Bell Tent that sleeps up to three adults.

Teaming up with Michelin-trained chef Sam Mahoney, Plush Tents offer glampers a delicious selection of breakfast and picnic hampers, freshly prepared and delivered to on the morning/day of your choice – the perfect way to kick-start your day. Then every evening a bonfire is lit which you can gather round with fellow guests and while away the hours. There's even a wood-fired hot tub to soak in – didn't they tell us this place was plush? 

Set in the rolling West Sussex countryside there's plenty of local exploring to be done. Take a stroll and see if you can spot or, if you're lucky, hear Densworth's resident green woodpecker. Why not take advantage of mother nature's larder and arrange a foraging walk to collect your wild ingredients for a campfire feast. The Plush Tents team can point you in the right direction. 

Whether you're after a romantic break, a fun-filled weekend with the family or a group getaway from the big city, Plush Tents provide the perfect combination of back-to-nature camping with fuss-free glamping. So go on, treat yourself.

Top Chill

My son and I have recently returned from Plush Tents for the third time in two years. For us it's the ideal place to leave all our stress and worries behind and chill out in a beautiful woodland. For us the huge wood fired hot tub and communal fire make this place really special. As always the yurt was wonderful and it made a lovely change to visit in Autumn as we usually come in spring , the transformation through the seasons is stunning. This time we cooked jacket potatoes in the open fire and roasted chestnuts in an old baked been time that we collected from the trees on the site . My son and I had a fantastic time as always and can't wait to return again next year. Thanks to all the staff whom were brilliant as always making sure our stay was perfect.....

Must visit!!!

what a delightful time my friends and I had at plush tents. From the moment we got there we were welcomed by the lovely plushtents staff. After a breathtaking tour of the site, we settled into our yurts... Which were beautiful from quality cotton sheets to facilities to play your own music. My friends and I spent two days at plush tents; cooking, sitting around the roaring fire, relaxing in hammocks and enjoying the hot tub. Plush tents was the perfect place for us friends to spend time together in a beautiful and natural environment. I would advise any one all ages, familes to visit here as it caters for all and a place I believe everyone can enjoy.

This place is amazing!

This place is amazing! 

I organised a surprise 30th birthday party for my boyfriend Leo at Plush Tents - couldn't recommend a better venue! 

From point of booking to point of going home - the staff were excellent - friendly and accommodating, happy to go the extra mile to meet whatever need was required! 

The site is set in beautiful countryside, making the perfect setting for a weekend away - whatever the occasion.

We stayed in the Yurt tents, which are warm and cosy with log burners, and beautifully dressed with ceiling drapes, cushions and a comfortable double bed, 

Not to mention the hot tub and hammocks, which are the perfect way to chill out and relax,

Throughout the night, the staff (Claire, Rosie, Adam and Macca) tended to our fire, kept the music going and contributed to the chilled out and friendly atmosphere, 

In the morning - bacon and egg buttys with fresh coffee and tea were on tap - with the staff even going out of their way to prepare food for the late risers...! 

Warm showers, great toilet facilities, a band stand seating area and chill out teepee with bean bags and cool lighting - what more could you want? 

5*** rating and cannot wait to go back next year 

Anna, Leo and friends

Love this place

Love it here. Two years in a row & both times wish we could have stayed at least another night. So peaceful & relaxing with most comfy cosy beds in the yurts & lovely wood burning stoves. Already thinking when we can next go in the spring.

amazing

We are a family with two boys 9 and 7 this place is perfect for them not on argument all weekend the staff are so friendly and showed them round and let them "help" with the wood for the fire which was on all weekend as just alittle chilly so lovely place to sit and relax. 

We stayed in a beautiful yurt, this is the second time we have been and they gave us same one so it was familiar for kids and close to amenities. The beds are so comfortable with hotel quality bedding and boys more than happy with the zbeds. The woodburner keeps it so warm with the beautiful lighting and yurt draping it makes it hard to leave.

But the hot tub and smell of bacon help we also visited kingsley vale which is a very close track with a yew tree forest. 

We cant wait to go back would love it for christmas break.

Perfect Escapism

We stayed at Plush Tents in August (we are staying again this weekend to catch the last of the nice weather at this beautiful site). The trip was with my Wife (older than me), Daughter (8) and Niece (13). We stayed for 2 nights and it was just fantastic. The location was great, views of the fields that casts an amazing light as the sun is setting. Its also nice and quiet. I really needed some quality time out with my family and the location, the staff, the yurts and of course the hot tub made this happen! 

The toilets and showers are clean and well tended, the staff are always on hand to answer any questions and assist, and of course get the all importantly nightly bonfire on the go!! 

In short, if you are looking for escapism, back to nature, time out, friendly staff, cosy yurts, bonfire building and time away from phones, laptops and busy life...get yourself down to Plush Tents.

ps As I write this I am remembering me laid on the bed in the yurt, wood crackling in the burner and book in hand. The kids were off electronic devices and out exploring the missus was chilled in the hot tub....one happy family.

Oh WOW WOW WOW

I've left a bit of my heart there. Its so beautiful! Peaceful and surrounded by the most stunning countryside. 

I took my family there last week and it really is perfect. Lots to do nearby for the children and plenty to amuse them onsite. My little girl loves the little treehouse and hammocks and my boys liked playing in the awesome Tipi. We were wallowing in the hot tub most of the time when the kids went to sleep. 

The beach is not far at all, about a 20 minute drive to one of the best sandy beaches I have ever seen. 

The staff were so helpful and attentive. It really was a superb get away for us, relaxing, fun and very comfortable. We cant wait to come back again!
