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.

Facilities

Our  cosy one bedroom cottage is available all year round for romantic, peaceful breaks. We buffed, painted and polished it ready for Spring 2021 - its completely self-contained with a king sized bed, Netflix, a kitchen with everything you need to make toast or a Sunday roast,  and a stylish shower room.

The grandly named 'Glamping Meadow' is home to our spacious and well equipped bell tent for summer nights under canvas. It's set on a raised deck with a proper king-sized bed, wood burner and a well equipped kitchen and shower. Perfect for a couple of days (or longer!) of just sitting and catching up.

Both the cottage and tent are peaceful, stylish and simple but comfortable.



Suitable For

We're perfect for understated romantic escapes - we've had a few engagments, lots of birthdays, anniversaries and 'just because' getaways.

We don't allow pets. Sorry! We have two cats who would leave home in a huff if we did.

We'll happily accommodate small groups and you're able to pitch a second tent in the meadow for a small fee. We aren't a party site though (although we'll happily recommend places if that's your thing). That doesn't mean we'll be policing what you do! It's very much 'your' space while you are here but this is our home too and we ask that you respect that.


Nearby

So many places to visit! Herefordshire is a quiet treasure trove of things to do and places to eat. We are, of course, the home of good cider which means you can spend an entire day visiting orchards and cider companies!

Our place is about 13 miles from Hereford with the Cathedral, the Mappa Mundi, river and shopping. Leominster is about 4 miles away and great for mooching around the second hand and vintage shops for bargains. Then there is Ludlow - home to one of the best food festivals in the country, a castle, great independent shopping and some fab architecture.

Hay on Wye is approx. 40 mins drive with lots of book shops, the Literary Festival every Spring, Hay Bluff and a hop across to the Brecon Beacons.


Further afield is Ledbury, the Clee Hills, the Malverns....we could go on and have lots of ideas depending on what takes your fancy. You might just want to kick back in a chair with a good book for a couple of days and that's encouraged!

The Owner Says

We're a small corner of glorious Herefordshire with just one cosy bell tent and a self-contained one bedroom cottage. Herefordshire is off the beaten track but has an awful lot to offer alongside the countryside, peace, big skies and cider! We're set in around three acres of our own land and surrounded by farm land on all sides which means we're lucky enough to spot lots of wildlife including badgers, kites, foxes, occasionally deer and plenty of rabbits (who LOVE to drive us mad by feasting in the veg beds!).
We'd like to say you're pretty much guaranteed a relaxing escape from the everyday - a much needed chance to recharge your batteries before heading back out into the world.

Social Distancing Measures

We have just two bell tents in our Glamping meadow. We will ensure that there is ample antibacterial cleaner available to guests at all times. We are pretty fastidious about cleaning anyway but will step things up a notch..

We will only welcome one tent at a time unless you come as a group of friends or extended family and book both of our beautiful bell tents. That way you aren't worrying about social distancing and can just kick back and relax with the place to yourselves! Something we all need to do after the bonkers start to 2021.

 We use a professional laundry service for our bed linens & towels

We hope you understand the reasoning behind this - our greatest wish will always that you have a relaxed, stress-free, peaceful break away from real life and, after many, many chats, we both feel this year we want to make things as simple as we can

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!

The perfect place to get away from it all

We stayed here for 6 nights. Great quality glamping with everything we needed for comfort and relaxation. We had wonderful weather so hardly moved all week, soaking in the sun and beautiful view from the platform of our tent from dawn (well not quite!) till dusk. The tent withstood torrential rain and night time storms with no problem. To be immersed in a beautiful natural setting was just what we were looking for and we found it . Moira supplied us with a lovely vegan breakfast basket which lasted several days and was a real treat. As hosts Moira and David were attentive without being intrusive but also willing and able to respond to all our needs. There is plenty of information about places to visit if you can bear to tear yourself away from the site and although it feels remote most places are only a short drive away. Everything at Herefordshire Glamping is clear and simple and it provides a holiday setting that requires no effort. We couldnt have asked for anything more.

Gorgeous experience, wonderful welcome and delicious breakfasts!

It's the first time in 33 years that I have got my husband to go camping and it was brilliant. Gorgeous tents, comfy bed and lots of pillows, blankets, hot water bottles and games. Amazing breakfast baskets and the piglets were an additional treat. Thoroughly recommend it.

Lovely glamping experience

David and Moira's glamping set up is wonderful. The tent was immaculately clean and very stylishly / thoughtfully furnished. It has all of the additions that you could desire (BBQ, firepit, indoor wood burner etc) and it is in the most beautiful and tranquil setting. Thoroughly recommended for a peaceful and relaxing stay!

Beautiful tents and a beautiful setting

This is proper glamping: really nicely designed tents, a lovely setting, and a super comfortable experience. The kitchen, toilet and showers just to the side made everything so easy even though we had a bit of rain when we were there. This was a combination of the best bits of camping (waking up in the elements, hearing the birds and seeing beautiful views from your bed) and the best bits of being at home (the bathroom was actually nicer than the one in my flat!). And Moira was super friendly too. I would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks Moira!

Best short break

We had the most amazing staying at Herefordshire Clamping. Moira and David were the most fabulous hosts, they made sure everything was there that was needed and nothing was too much to ask. Our 2 children loved running around the meadow and feeding the pigs was a highlight for them, along with hearing the birds sing in the morning. It was the most relaxing break and really recharged our batteries. We will 100% be booking again.

We've had the best time

What an amazing weekend we've had. Moira and David have been fantastic and made our weekend so relaxing. Nothing was to much and they went out of their way to make our weekend extra special. We want to thank you both so much for all you've done and will definitely see us again LIZ and MATT

The most relaxing glamping experience with little one

We've had the best stay here. It was only way too short! Everything you need is there (providing the glam) but it's also kept beautifully natural and simple, which is what we love about camping. The yurt has very comfy beds, everything is clean and fresh, there a lovely books and magazines to relax with, a ready-to-go BBQ and just across the green is a small kitchen with sink, kettle, shower, power sockets, etc. The view is wide and beautiful, our little one loved the pigs and chickens, and there is lots to do in the surrounding area. As there are only two yurts, it's a really calm place that feels more personal than larger camp sites. Moira was a wonderful host and we really want to come back asap for a little longer this time.

excellent stay

This was our second time at Herefordshire Glamping and we had an excellent stay. This time we were joined by friends of ours ( first time glamping) and by the time we left they were totally hooked, all the kids loved it- no sign of ipads, phones etc just running around and enjoying the fresh air.

The site is perfect for visiting the surrounding areas, while we were there we went to the Monkland Cheese factory, visited a cider producer and went to the Hay Festival. We had fantastic weather during our stay as were able to BBQ a couple of times, it did get cooler in the evenings, but I recommend you hire a firepit, it was only a small charge for the use and a bag of logs, but we were able to sit outside till late - just perfect and quite, when the kids had gone to bed!!!!

We will be booking again for next year.

Great midweek with the kids

I really enjoyed our stay at Herefordshire Glamping. It was my first time Glamping and as a result I have booked a few subsequent trips. I was between jobs and had a rare opportunity to spend some time with my daughters (6 and 11) while my wife stayed at home. We all had a superb time. My daughters loved the freedom of bowling around the camp site, and loved the lighting up time with the candles and lanterns. Everything was provided, the kitchen and shower rooms were well kitted out, clean and well decorated. I took the kids to see Mappa Mundi and Weobly when the sun shined. We had a rainy morning at the cheese factory down the road. All great trips.

My favourite memory was watching the sun go down on our last evening. We watched the housemartins feeding their young in the nest they had built in one of the outhouses. My girls did cartwheels in the field in their pyjamas. A happy time, out of our normal routine, no phones, no ipads, fresh warm air, just me and my family. It will stay with me for a long time.

Great Stay

My girlfriend booked a weekend here as a birthday surprise in August 2015. We had a really nice time- it was quiet with long views over the neighbouring fields. Our tent had just about everything we could think we would need with a huge, comfortable bed and the kitchen and shower were clean, modern and well equipped. Lots of hot water! 

We ventured out to Hay on Wye and walked around some great old bookshops- definitely worth a visit.

Moira was very welcoming and helpful with ideas of where to go and things to do should we want to.

We liked it so much, we have booked to go back this July!
