About Glamping West Midlands

Suitable For

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


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.

Myself my partner and our 3 boys had a wonderful stay at the glamping site, we stayed in a beautiful clean yurt there was everything you could need and more , the surroundings around us were breath taking. The boys enjoyed getting back to basics making fires keeping us all warm!! Would definitely recommend and return . Chris was so lovely and went above and beyond for us , she was so kind she picked us up after a lovely meal at the cat inn and brought us back... Chris was friendly, welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our glamping experience 10 out of 10

Hi Rachel thank you so much for your lovely review. You are welcome back anytime x

Made to feel so welcome!

I don’t think I have stayed anywhere in the past few years and been made to feel so welcome and at ease. Chris really is a superb host; nothing is too much trouble. We were blessed with sunshine and enjoyed the peaceful setting and privacy of the hen hut. We enjoyed being at one with nature; meeting the animals, lighting the fire in the hot tub, cooking outdoors and seeing the best of the countryside on some lovely walks. The hen hut was comfortable and well equipped, the showers hot and the toilets clean. We would love to visit again!


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 :)
