Head here for an authentic glamping getaway in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside

For an authentic glamping getaway in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, Glamping West Midlands is the perfect destination. The stately grounds of the grand Mere Hall set the scene perfectly for a weekend of relaxation. With the sights and sounds of rampant wildlife filling the reinvigorating country air, the centre-piece of this idyll is undoubtedly the farm’s tranquil lake. The surrounding smallholding is home to a whole host of convivial critters including sheep, cows, geese, chickens and llamas – yes, llamas!

The beautifully crafted twin Mongolian yurts which call this site home are kitted out with comfort in mind. The wood burning stove turns this into a cosy nest of loveliness while the air vent prevents things from getting too stuffy. Affable campsite proprietor, Chris Armstrong, is happily on hand in the evenings to make sure your stay is completely hassle-free. Her carefully put-together welcome pack includes all the essentials for your stay.

Should you need any other bits and bobs or advice on places to visit (of which there are countless - this is the Midlands remember!), just give Chris a shout. And with just two yurts on site, you’re free to enjoy your new nest in perfect peace and quiet (bar the odd bleating llama!).

Details

Facilities

There's plenty of friendly farmyard animals to pet and play with. The herd of fluffy llama's can't have escaped your notice—the kids can get up close & personal with the llamas and other friendly animals. The yurts sit atop decking on which you'll also find a private seating area and barbeque. Inside, the yurts are fully-equipped for a hassle-free holiday. There is a double bed and two daybeds. If additional airbeds are required they are also available at a modest charge. Bed linen, duvets, pillows and towels are all provided. As with the traditional Mongolian yurts, there's no electricity inside but lighting is provided by enchanting fairy lights and lanterns. The wood burning stove will keep things nice and cosy and your first bag of logs are complimentary. Chris also provides a welcome pack consisting of milk, tea, coffee (camping stove kindly provided) matches, sugar, matches, toilet rolls. Each yurt also has its own cold water supply. The facilities block is just a short walk away and boasts hot showers, electricity points and also a fridge/freezer.

Suitable For

Glamping couples, families, groups—yes. Sorry, no dogs allowed due to the animals on the adjacent smallholding.

Nearby

The high heath and woodland escarpment of Kinver Edge is just 4 miles west of Stourbridge. This history is positively hued into the rock of this popular beauty spot and tourist attraction. There are two Iron Age hill forts here as well as the last surviving troglodyte dwellings in England. These remarkably well-preserved cave houses were occupied up until the 1950s. Local legend has it that the enchanting hermitages provided the inspiration for one the region's most famous son's, J.R.R. Tolkien, when conjuring his iconic Hobbiton. The industrial heritage of the region is vividly brought to life at the Black Country Museum and Ironbridge Gorge Museum. To see the best of the local wildlife, Highgate Common is abuzz with fascinating insects and vibrant flora—little wonder then it's a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. If shopping is on your agenda, the Bridgnorth Saturday Markets and Birmingham Bull ring are both within driving distance. If you're visiting around early September, be sure to check out the Ludlow Castle food festival.

Food & Drink

The Fox in nearby Stourton serves up some decent pub grub. If you fancy pushing the boat out, The Six Ashes in Bobbington serves refined and innovative cusine, making excellent use of the best in Black Country produce. Speaking of local delicacies, why not stick some famously tasty Staffordshire beef steaks on your barbeque back at camp? The Red Lion pub and hotel in Bobbington is a family-friendly country residence that serves up great modern cuisine and also has a large children's playground and beer garden.

Terrible

We had a terrible Experience with our glamping trip ! Night one we had a very loud house party right next to us until early hours in the morning, We was also told that we’d be provided with a private hot tub, which wasn’t the case as all it was a shared one. On day two the owner was VERY VERY rude to me and my partner, to which she was swearing at us, what completely ruined our experience so we woke up the following morning at early hours and left ! Ontop of that we was informed that this site wasn’t pet friendly which was ideal as my partner is allergic to dogs, but as we was sitting and eating our dinner some other customers had a dog and it wouldn’t leave our side so my partner woke up covered in rashes. Very disappointing experience indeed to what was our anniversary weekend !

Response from Glamping West Midlands

I'm sorry Kieran felt he had such a poor experience. It's a shame he didn't discuss any of these issues with me at the time of his stay in July.

There has never been a house party as all of the barns owners are elderly and not within earshot of the site!

I am never rude and certainly wouldn't swear at my paying guests!

I have never advertised a private hot tub. There is a hot tub that I clean out daily and allocate each guest a daily slot.

I do not allow dogs other than my own on my site as I have a collection of rare breed animals. My guests and their children regularly ask for my dogs to play with them as they are extremely friendly, as my reviews will show. If Kieran's partner was allergic to dogs it would have been useful to inform me  and I would have kept them in.

Excellent escape

Chris is so friendly and welcoming, the site is clean and quiet, the animals are friendly and the hot tub was a relaxing experience to top off our stay, we really loved it ❤

Amazing weekend

Booked the shepherds hut for myself and my boyfriend as a last minute birthday celebration and had one of the best birthdays ever! The hut has everything you need for outdoor and indoor cooking, we spent the first night cooking on the fire outside and taking in the nature around us, and had a cosy second night in the hut where we cooked on the stove inside. There was every animal we could ever imagine on and around the farm and some nice walks and pools nearby too. We spent the last day in our own private garden area outside the hut and then went wild swimming in a nearby pool about 15 minutes away. We did not make use of the hot tub although it looked simple enough to use and the shower room was nice to use too. Would definitely recommend booking this place :)

Great last minute booking and a great weekend

Booked at the last minute and a great find only an hour away. Had a brilliant few days in one of the Shepards Huts with the added bonus of the log fired hot tub and fire pit. The owners were very nice and the site was so quiet which just added to make a lovely weekend!

A Fantastic Break

We have just retuned from a 2 night stay in one of Glamping West Midland's yurts and have had a brilliant time. My husband, two children (age 7 & 8) and I have had so much fun. It was our first adventure camping and I am so glad that we decided to go glamping. The yurt was beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything that we needed. Chris' attention to detail was impressive, even towels and lovely soft blankets were provided. All we needed to take was food. Despite going for a few rainy days in April, the yurts were really warm and cosy. It was great to be able to stand up in the yurt and move around easily. There was lots of space for the 4 of us and all of our bags! The facilities (showers, toilets etc) were far better than I was expecting. Very clean and easy to get to in the night. My daughter loves animals and was absolutely thrilled when Chris invited her to feed the animals (geese, chickens, ponies, llama's, pigs etc) and walk the dogs. She has had the time of her life. My husband and son had a great time lighting the fire-heated hot tub and we managed to get in it last night. It was a magical end to a wonderful holiday. The location of the site is great. Only about 15 minutes from Bridgnorth where we spent the day on the steam railway. Then we visited a local pub for dinner, recommended by Chris and had a very warm welcome. The owner of the pub offered us milk and bread incase we hadn't been able to get to the shops and even gave us a free bottle of wine! If you are reading through all the varying glamping sites and wondering where to go. I'd highly recommend Glamping West Midland's. It's in a beautiful setting and there is only 1 other yurt and a few cabins for people to stay, so you won't be surrounded by noisy neighbours.

Wonderful Weekend

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed in one of these wonderful yurts for 3 nights.  Everything was provided for us (just bring food and drink)  Beautiful setting.  So many lovely animals and birds, felt like I was on a little safari. Great pubs nearby.  The owners are close by and were very friendly and helpful.  For someone that doesn't do camping, I can't wait to go back!
