Perfect 👍🏻

Well what can I say. Our 21year old son said to me “best holiday ever” (and we’ve taken him to Australia!). This is the perfect place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and just relax. Charlotte and Steve really have thought of everything. You just bring clothes and food with you (though you can buy yummy things on site or at gorgeous Ledbury). We came with our 18 and 21 year old sons and had the best time, despite the cold and slightly wet weather (Halloween). The hot tub at night, with drinks, under the sky full of stars is amazing. Cooking food (and toasting marshmallows) over the fire pit is special. And the comfy beds with cosy electric blankets, and proper bathroom with soft towels and lovely toiletries make all the difference. I’m never going back to camping 😊

A fantastic stay at a beautiful location.

Charlotte and Steve have really thought of everything to make for a luxurious stay. The attention to detail was second to none. The site is in a beautiful area. We would definitely come back.

Amazing weekend away from it all!

The accommodation is top notch, everything felt luxurious but still rugged and outdoorsy! The hosts were really helpful, friendly, pleasant and amenable. The area is beautiful and I can’t recommend strongly enough renting a bike for a very reasonable price and taking a cruise around the beautiful surroundings. Will definitely be returning!

The coziest and warmest Glamping experience!

It was great at Upsticks Glamping! Plenty of things to do on site (ping pong, board games, fire pit/bbq, hot tub) as well as surrounding areas (Malvern hill, Cider tour, canoeing). It was very warm and cozy inside the tents despite it being mid October - there were plenty of blankets and the electric blankets are a massive plus! We went as a group and had a fantastic time. A super relaxed stay as everything was provided (entertainment box, pantry, firewood etc) - I can’t recommend them enough :)

A perfect, relaxing getaway!

We loved our stay here. It was perfect right from the start. We were welcomed on our arrival and shown round our tent and the facilities. We loved our welcome hamper which included fresh bread, eggs, cake and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. Thank you! The place was spotlessly clean, stylish and very comfortable. The bed was so comfortable I checked to see what the mattress was for future shopping reference! It was also well lit with the aid of fairy lights throughout. We have stayed in other safari tents which haven’t come close to the comfort and facilities on offer here. I loved the fact that the bathroom was replete with good quality toiletries (British made and cruelty free) in full size bottles. What a treat! We paid extra for use of the wood fired hot tub and it was worth it very penny. Such a relaxing end to each day, we loved it! I enjoyed feeding the pet sheep and chickens too! We will definitely recommend Upsticks to our friends and we plan to return next year. Thanks for a wonderful, relaxing stay.
