Glamping and Alternative
Off grid glamping site sleeping up to 42 with wood fired hot tubs, for families and groups of friends, near Yeovil

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Woodland Escape, South Barrow, Somerset, sleeps 4-42 in 11 bedrooms.

Sleeps 4 to 42 in 10 glamping options:
1 canvas lodge sleeps 6 (a double, a twin and a sofa bed)
7 bell tents sleep 4 each
2 yurts sleep 4 each
Available individually or for exclusive hire of the whole site.

A true woodland escape from all the pressures of modern life, this site offers guests a complete digital detox and a sustainable stay in a tranquil off grid location without compromising on comfort and luxury. Hot showers, flushing toilets and snug accommodation in a choice of glamping units mean that guests can get back to nature and experience the Japanese concept of 'Forest Bathing' while making the most of facilities on offer such as the wood fired hot tub and children's play area.

Woodland Escape is happy to welcome groups of all kinds including friends, family, stags, hens, corporate and special interest groups such as yoga retreats. Some will need to book exclusive use of the site where privacy for other visitors could be impacted.

There is a great covered al fresco dining area for parties to gather in order to share a barbecue or toast some marshmallows over the fire pit. Team building activities can also be enjoyed in the rural forest setting, making it a fantastic 'away days' opportunity for businesses or youth groups.

The well insulated yurts are nestled in natural clearings between the trees and provide a cosy sleeping experience for guests to enjoy while looking at the stars through the roof lights. The canvas lodge and bell tents provide a taste of Bedouin-inspired luxury, all in the heart of Somerset. There is a useful mix of double beds and futons as well as plenty of storage. A breakfast hamper can be purchased by prior arrangement although each unit has its own barbecue, gas stove and picnic bench. Different packages are available depending on how much of your own kit you wish to bring.

There is plenty to explore at Woodland Escape but further afield is the Fleet Air Museum in Ilchester, 10 minutes away, and the Haynes Motor Museum just 5 minutes from the site with its very own go karting track. Cheddar Gorge is a drive of 45 minutes and Clarks Village 20 minutes.
