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 three 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 decision to keep the glamping site to just three 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...

Nearby

Perry Tree Glamping is a 10-minute drive from the historic black and white market town of Ledbury, where you can get all your daily needs as well as exploring the boutique independent shops. Weston’s Cider Mill (01531 660233) is just down the road, home to the world famous Stowford Press cider, or, if you’re feeling up to it, take on the Oliver’s Cider Tour (07768 732026) just 5 minutes down the road – an artisan cider producer not to be taken lightly! New Bridge Farm Park (01531 670780) is great for the family – think tractor rides, playing in straw bales and picnicking among the animals when the sun's out. It's also 20 minutes to Hereford, home to yet another cider tour as well as, more famously, grand Hereford Cathedral, which houses the Mappa Mundi (01432 374200), the largest medieval map in the world.

Food & Drink

Charcoal BBQ’s are available to buy on-site and there is a simple camping gas stove for use. Tea and coffee making facilities are also provided. Elsewhere, The Hop Pocket (01531 640323) and The Nest (01531 670816) are both around a 5-minute drive and both fantastic little farm shops to pick up all your locally produced supplies, while Ledbury (10 minutes) has everything else covered from large supermarkets to local butchers. The Majors Arms (01531 640261) is the nearest pub, 5 minutes drive away, and has one of the best drinking view points in the county, quite possibly the country. For something a little more refined The Oak Inn (01531 640954; 7 minute drive) in Staplow or The Verzon Hotel (01531 670381; 5 minute drive) are great choices.

Opening Times

May–October.

Fantastic Weekend

Host: Ed was so helpful and friendly. He promptly responded to emails before we arrived giving me lots of handy tips and suggestions...super helpful for us first time glampers! When we arrived, we couldn't quite figure out how to get to the campsite from the carpark and Ed was there within 2 minutes to show us. We used up all the wood (it was a little chilly!) and again, Ed was there straight away to replenish the storage boxes. His complementary apple juice was also delicious. Location: Beautiful. We started the day with a walk around the Malvern Hills...the children soon stopped whinging once they saw the beautiful views! We then went to a nearby pub called the Wellington Inn for lunch - the food was home cooked and delicious. It was then a 20 minute drive to the campsite. Eastnor Castle is a 15 minute drive away and we were lucky enough to be there for the fireworks competition, which were truly amazing. Campsite: We booked all 3 belltents, so had the site to ourselves. What a bonus. We had no qualms about letting the children roam around the fields by themselves and they had great fun chasing sheep. We made use of all the facilities..the woodburning stoves in the tents, the firepits outside the tents, the cooking stoves, the fridge, all the cooking utensils....there was everything there that we needed (& more!). There are 2 toilet and shower cubicles...both were great, and exceeded our expectations in terms of what we were expecting. The tents themselves are homely and spacious..we loved the little touches like the bunting, the quilts on the beds, the tea lights, and even the 'bedside tables'. Ed has done a fantastic job in setting this up. Only one minor downside was that the sheep kept getting through the fence and leaving little presents of sheep poo within the campsite which meant we had to keep wellies on at all times...but I guess this adds to the experience! Summary: We can't wait to go back next year...says it all!

Laid back but with everything you need

Stayed for a weekend as a group of 7. Hired the whole campsite so we had more than enough space for ourselves. Good facilities and the yurts are quite big once your inside. Ample ways to cook including gas camping stove, BBQ or on the campfire. Really good laid back vibe. Close enough to the river Wye for canoeing and to Ross for a pub. Will definitely be back!

Amazing break

Thanks Ed for a brilliant weekend. We booked all three tents and had a great stay on this idyllic farm. Location was perfect for exploring and visiting Forest of Dean for a family bike ride. The tents have everything you could need provided and the access to fields for games and the friendly goats kept the kids entertained. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic weekend glamping with friends, very peaceful and great beds!

We stayed at Perry Tree Glamping for a 30th birthday celebration. As there were 11 of us, we booked all three tents, which meant we had the whole site to ourselves. Everyone had such a great time. The views and sunsets in the evenings were awesome, and the beds couldn't have been more comfy - everyone said how well they slept. There is everything you need here - from BBQs, gas stoves with kitchen utensils and pans, fire pits outside and wood burners inside the tents. The toilets and showers were great - very clean and it was lovely to have a lovely warm shower in a morning. There is a fridge/freezer a short walk away (a few minutes) which is available for use, great for keeping all your drinks cool - I'd recommend also bringing a cool box and a couple of bags of ice too so you don't have to walk to the fridge each time you want a beer! We pre-booked some taxi's into Hereford (approx £25 each way) and spent the day there at a beer festival. Taxi's are a similar price to Ledbury. We had 4 people per tent, and there was still plenty of room to stand up and move around. Ed was very helping during the booking process, was quick answering questions, and came to meet us on arrival to make sure we had everything we needed. A great weekend away!

Magical

A beautiful and peaceful site surrounded by countryside with far reaching views and the most amazing sunsets. We sat late into the evening around our campfire watching the sun go down across rolling hills. The tents were immaculate and well stocked, and the beds incredibly comfortable. We loved the fact that there were only 3 tents on the whole site, and of course the 3 Pygmy goats who provided much entertainment for the children. Ed was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. It was well located for Ledbury, which had all amenities and lots of lovely cafes and interesting shops. As we weren’t far from the River Wye we did a half day’s canoeing from Symonds Yat, which was a great experience. We would highly recommend and would definitely visit again.

Fantastic

We had a fabulous bank holiday at Perry Tree Glamping. It was how we imagined and so lovely to have only three tents which meant it was extremely quiet and peaceful (bar our three children!). Ed (the owner) was extremely helpful before our visit answering all emails promptly and welcomed us when we arrived and checked we did not need anything throughout the weekend. The children loved feeding the goats with Ed. Everything was in good condition and it was well stocked with equipment. Loos, showers and washing facilities were clean and more than adequate (there were even scented candles in the loos!). All in all we had a fantastic time and would highly recommend. Thank you Ed.
