Cotswolds Glamping


We’re off to the fantastic Cotswolds area for our glamping trip. This location hits the spot with adults and kids alike with tons to do in the surrounding area. Enjoying the great outdoors just got a whole lot more civilised with our mega en-suite glamping pods! Within easy reach of your comfy pod you have many picturesque Cotswold villages, fun at farm parks, castles to let the kids and their imaginations run wild, a walk on the wild side at wildlife parks, not to mention the UK’s biggest inland beach! It looks to be a fabulous and fun packed trip.

The area we’re heading to sits less than 4 miles from the gorgeous village of Bourton-on-the-Water, a definite must see for all visitors to the area. It’s described as the ‘Little Venice’ of the Cotswolds, with its pretty waterside views. In summertime the shallow Windrush river is the perfect spot for cooling down with a paddle in the river or an ice cream on the banks!

Our accommodation is set in the idyllic village of Notgrove, surrounded by rolling countryside. We’re staying on a 1500 acre estate and family farm. Our camp mates on the farm will be the characterful alpacas, pigs, donkeys and a goat! All the animals love attention so there will be numerous chances to meet them, feed them, and fuss them! Children will just love the chance to meet the animals and learn more about them. In addition to the animals there are mapped walking routes and cycle paths around the estate.

Glamping holidays are always a popular option for adults and children alike. All the benefit of the great outdoors and lots of space to chill out or play, but with the comfort of your own little wooden hideaway .

We’re heading to the Cotswolds this year for our Glamping break. Close to lovely Cotswolds towns like Bourton on the Water, yet surrounded by some of England’s prettiest countryside.

There’s no need to arrive early to put up tents or blow up airbeds, everything is ready and waiting.

Things to do...

There’s so much to do around here, we’d struggle to list it all! We’re just a short drive from many attractions, including Cotswold Wildlife Park with its exciting collection of animals, plus fantastic treetop adventure playground. The pretty Cotswold Country Park & Beach is a popular spot locally, offering lots of water sports, walking routes and swimming at the UKs biggest inland beach! Other stunning Cotswold villages, such as Upper Slaughter, Lower Slaughter and Stow-on-the-Wold are just 15 minutes or less away. If you’re still wanting more there are National Trust properties, Sudely castle, climbing centres, Birdland, Cotswold Motoring Museum…to name but a few!


Running from Monday 17th August to Friday 21st August 2020. It’s a 4 night break

*Please note that the coordinator is only available on the above dates*
