Dorothy Goes Glamping, South Barrow, Somerset, sleeps 24-50 in 12 bedrooms.

Open from 1st March to 1st November:
6 bell tents sleep 4 each
4 yurts sleep 4 each
Canvas lodge sleeps 6
Geo-dome sleeps 4
Situated on a site within 9 acres of woodland, offering plenty of private space for each unit. Available as a whole site sleeping 50, or a group can take half the site sleeping 25.

An exclusive glamping experience if ever there was one, Dorothy Goes Glamping is tucked away in secluded countryside near Yeovil in Somerset. The secluded pitches – some in woodland, some in meadows – offer an off-grid, eco-friendly break and the chance to disconnect from technology.

Hen parties, stag weekends, couples on loved-up date nights, family groups – all are welcome here. Come away as a large group and enjoy the whole site to yourselves, or smaller groups happy to share the facilities on site are welcome too. Dogs are also welcome - the site is securely fenced, with lots of walking opportunities very close by.

Accommodation is in a range of glamping pods, with luxurious extras including hot tubs (one for each half of the site - no chemicals, heated by wood burning stove - book on site), and with proper beds and a vintage trunk for storing your stuff away. A welcome hamper contains cutlery, crockery and mugs as well as washing-up utensils.

How to keep fed and watered? The bell tents have full use of a communal cooking area with gas barbecue, gas stoves and a pizza oven. Outside the other lodgings is a barbecue and picnic bench for cosy nights around the firepit, plus a two-burner gas stove for outdoor cooking and dining.

There's also a bar, pizza oven and gas BBQ. Or pick up basics at the handy shop in Queen Camel (10 minutes’ drive) for mealtimes, or head to the pub in Sparkford (5 minutes) instead.

Separate shower and loo blocks (4 toilets, 4 showers) are steps away from the pitches – but remember to pack a torch as there’s no light after dark. Thanks to that lack of light, you can take in the starry sky and you might also get to see deer and badgers flitting around after dark.


Each yurt has its own cooking equipment and bell tents have use of a shared outdoor covered cooking area.
Picnic benches outside each glamping pod.
Enjoy cosy evenings around the firepit, or relax inside your pod.
Off grid so no TV or music - enjoy the peace and quiet.
