The Owner Says

In the depths of rural Herefordshire, famous for cider, cattle and black and white properties. We offer three brand new very select Glamping units in the form of fully furnished five metre bell tents, with your own en-suite shower, vanity unit and compost toilet. King size beds with luxury mattresses, cotton linen, table and chairs, scatter rugs, hot water bottles ,cuddly throws for extra warmth, clever none electric lighting, storage and log burner.

We include kindling, wood and charcoal at no extra cost.

We are off grid with no electric but when night falls the field transforms into a twinkling space with clever solar lighting.  In the kitchen you will find a quality torch.

Outside your own fire pit barbecue and seating area. You have your own individual kitchen unit with gas rings and utilities for that well earned cup of tea or culinary delight. The site is off grid with no electricity, but we offer a courtesy charging station and fridge freezer near to the house.

Couples only, allows quiet, peaceful, romantic times, nestled in a very private old Perry pear orchard, with an abundance of wild flowers and nature. The owls at night should be your only sounds as you gaze at the famously clear starlit skies of Herefordshire.

New House Farm is a working breading centre for old traditional poultry breeds. The owner will always be pleased to show you around and explain if you are interested, in how it all works from egg to egg laying.

The surrounding area hosts many footpaths direct from the farm to the beautiful countryside beyond.

Local villages have most requirements you need from the traditional butcher, village stores, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Hay-on-Wye the renowned book town is close by, with its castle, walks on the banks of the Wye and mountainous Hay Bluff, interesting buildings and of course world famous books.

The area has exceptional fishing, pony trekking, canoeing, walking, and is good for cycling. Many beautiful pubs to explore and less than two hours from the stunning welsh coastline and welsh border country views surround you.

We have taken every care to offer our customers  a unique experience.  We wanted to retain the camping with a glamorous twist.  The 5M Bell Tent has everything you could want and outside you will find a bespoke hot shower, vanity unit with hot water and a compost toilet which is simple and easy to use with no odour whatsoever and very environmentally friendly for your exclusive use - no sharing. We have created your own personal kitchen which is stocked with everything from an egg cup, bottle opener in fact as a guest commented "you have thought of everything". We provide tea, coffee, sugar on your arrival just in case.  There is washing up liquid, antibac cleaner and soap and salt & pepper grinders and oil for your convenience.

Please note - our bell tents are not pet-friendly.

Peace and tranquillity

Homestead Glamping provided such a tranquil and peaceful staycation. Nick and Heather were great hosts and had thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. The location of the site was beautiful, inside a small meadow with only three tents providing a real feel of privacy. The bell tents were spacious and comfortable and extremely cosy with the added benefit of the log burner. Having your own cooking, toilet and shower facilities was a real bonus too. Sitting outside the tent on a summer evening with the fire pit going whilst sampling the local ciders was the perfect way to end the day! I would highly recommend staying here so much so that I extended my stay for a couple of extra nights. Thank you Nick and Heather

Fantastic glamping site

We really enjoyed our stay at Homestead Glamping and Camping. Nick and Heather were the most attentive hosts and gave us a warm welcome on our arrival. The site is beautiful - three glamping tents (we stayed in Rosiebell) with their own private compost toilet, shower and kitchen, and the lovely long grass meadow provided a lot of privacy perfect for a couple's getaway. The kitchen was great too and had everything (and more) that was needed; all presented with really nice attention to detail. There was a firepit bbq too (charcoal and wood provided) and sitting by the fire of an evening and cook our evening meal was just great! The location is very convenient for Hereford and Hay-on-Wye as well as the river and countryside walks but once you've seen the site you would want to make the most of it. We thoroughly recommend it and hope to be back ourselves.

Amazing experience

An amazing glamping experience. Homestead is a great countryside hideaway that's run so well by Heather and Nick. They provide everything you need for a great outdoor experience - firepit, wood/charcoal, super comfy bed, hot showers, compost toilet emptied regularly, fitted kitchen and even a picnic hamper that you could take to the many riverside locations locally. We stayed in ‘Bluebell’ which was beautifully decorated and tucked away in the corner of the field. The animals onsite, butterflies in the meadow, bats and swifts flying overhead make this a nature lovers happy place. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights spend there and wish Heather and Nick all the very best for many seasons to come.

Beautiful getaway

This was our first ever Glamping experience, we both throughly enjoyed our stay and the views that we were surrounded by were stunning. Loved all the animals that were around on the property too. Nick & Heather on arrival provided a warm and friendly welcoming to Homestead Glamping, also little touches that you may need during your stay! We arrived a little late on our check in however Nick and Heather were happy to accommodate us on our arrival showing us around the site. We stayed in ‘Bluebell’ tent which was beautifully decorated and homely. The added bonus of having your own shower, toilet and own kitchen area adds to the feel of luxurious glamping experience. Facilities were very clean and well organised. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful!

This was my first ever Glamping experience and I am so glad I got to spend it in the tranquil surroundings at Homestead! Not only do the owners, Nick & Heather provide all the little touches that you may need during your stay, they also offer such a warm and friendly face welcoming you to Homestead Glamping which definitely makes you wish you were staying for longer! We arrived a little late on our check in however Nick and Heather were happy to accommodate us on our arrival showing us around the site. We stayed in bell tent ‘Bluebell’ which was beautifully decorated and homely. The added bonus of having your own shower, toilet and own kitchen area adds to the feel of luxurious glamping experience. The roosters early wake up call and sounds of galloping horses is what really makes the experience at Homestead unique. We thoroughly enjoyed our couple of nights spent at Homestead and can only hope many other guests get to discover this gem!

Response from Homestead Glamping

Hello Emma
It is very warming to receive such a kind review after your stay with us.
   We were more than happy to show you round later than expected, we were just sorry that the dreaded Friday travelling had robbed you of relaxation time
    Anyway we are pleased that your first time was enjoyable for you and gave you and Tom the down time you desired
  We would like to add how appreciative we were how tidy and clean you left Bluebell and it’s kitchen , despite Tom now obviously being a pair of socks short !
  We do hope we see you both again . Try and do a Sunday to mid week stay and avoid that London traffic next time , if you can . A welcome awaits
   Kind regards Nick and Heather
