Blissful bell tent camping among the apple blossom of an organic orchard slap bang in the heart of cider country.

If you're going to stay in cider country, then what could be better than glamping in a orchard? Almost half of the UK's apples are used in the brewing of cider nowadays and, here in East Herefordshire, you needn't travel far in summer to find apple pickers busy harvesting their fruit. Not that it's anything new. When Caesar invaded England in 55BCE, he discovered ancient Celts sipping on a sweet and pungent crab apple brew and it wasn't long before the Roman troops were shipping the stuff back home. Even in Rome they were celebrating the Herefordshire apple harvest.

Nestled on the edge of a small orchard of pear and apple trees, the two bell tents at Perry Tree Glamping offer a homely window into the scenic, cidery world of rural Herefordshire today. In late spring, the organic trees form a bright, humming backdrop of pretty apple blossom tended by busy bumble bees, while summer brings the full fruit itself, dangling appetisingly from the branches. The bell tents, meanwhile, pitched on raised, flat bases, look not in towards the trees, but out and over the hedgerows to the countryside beyond, while hammocks, suspended between tree trunks provide an extra spot for kicking back and taking in the view.

The descion to keep the glamping site to just two bell tents affords ample privacy and gives it all a rather exclusive feel. It's matched, of course, by some of the luxuries involved. Inside, the bell tents have proper double beds, wood-burning stoves and the obligatory dressing of fairy lights and bunting, while, outside, the facilities – toilets, showers and an area for your campfire – still ensure it all has an outdoorsy, 'camping' ambience. Belinda the donkey, who chomps her way through the adjacent field certainly approves. She's also a big fan of all the new found attention.

If you're not sampling local tipple on one of the nearby cider tours, then walking in the Mendip Hills or touring the historic towns – the timbered buildings of Ledbury or the grand cathedrals of Hereford and Worcester – is always a safe bet to occupy your time. Perry Tree Glamping also welcomes you to bring your bikes along so that you can really explore the area. Bring your wicker, handle-bar basket and you can even stock up on local goods, cider and crab apple jelly along the way. After all, when in Rome...

The Owner Says

Perry Tree Glamping is situated in the heart of rural Herefordshire, on our tradition family run farm. Come stay in one of our luxurious canvas bell tents, which offer all the comforts of home with a rural chic twist. Comfy beds, a wood burning stove and hot running showers all come as standard, not to mention the fire pits for roasting marsh mallows! When not taking in the tranquility of the organic orchard in which the site sits, the historic market towns of Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye are close by, with the Welsh boarders just a little further. We may not have electricity on site, but here you can truly recharge!
