Mark your wedding anniversary in style with a couples glamping break where you can shut the world out and lavish attention on each other.

You’ll be so loved up you won’t even care that they forgot to put the bins out (and that really is #couplegoals). Browse some of our romantic breaks, perfect for marvellous milestones.
A luxurious double-width shepherd’s hut, award-winning Dimpsey Yonder is a peaceful sanctuary in a thirty-acre AONB in Somerset. Sharing your surroundings with wildflowers, birds, butterflies and wandering deer, you’ll feel like you’ve wandered into a fairy land. It’s hard not to feel hot under the collar with a huge copper bath inviting you in for candle lit soaks and an outdoor tub ready for celebratory nights under starry skies. For a special meal for two, there are foodie pubs and supper clubs nearby as well as the gastronomic delights of Lyme Regis. Long standing Canopy & Stars owners, Emma and Andrew, are on hand to give local recommendations and make your stay as perfect as possible.
A secluded bolthole for love birds perched high in the trees, Uplands Treehouse is a hop, skip and jump from Bristol, but you’ll find rolling hills and resident alpacas instead of bustling crowds. Set the tone for a romantic day with leisurely morning coffees in the king-sized bed gazing out over the Mendips, as light streams through the floor to ceiling windows. With an al-fresco shower, a huge balcony and a comfy sofa in front of the wood burner, it’ll be a wedding anniversary to remember. For added bonding moments, try horse riding and wine tasting or visit the nearby village of Writington for great eateries.
When a guest describes a place as a ‘little slice of heaven’ you know you’re in for a treat. Pumla is a yurt but not as you know it with huge picture windows that stretch the entire front of the building, letting in the panoramic Herefordshire views by day and offering a cinematic glimpse of the stars by night. There are spectacular hikes from the doorstep and a fairy lit tin tub on the deck where you can massage each others’ aching limbs at the end of an invigorating day exploring the Brecon Beacons. If you still need convincing, guest Ffion described the bed as ‘so comfy I’ll be thinking about it for months’. A crucial ingredient in any romantic glamping getaway.
Celebrate your wedding anniversary with your tipple of choice in the twin roll top baths on the private deck at The Old Piggery. The vast sweeping views over the Devon valley below are the perfect backdrop for toasting years of wedded bliss and concocting exciting plans for the future. The barn is cosy and open plan with a romantic bed floating on air (otherwise known as hanging from the ceiling!). The Old Piggery is part of an 11th century farm in the hills on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, so if you visit for a couples glamping break in the Spring, you’ll find gambolling lambs and baby chicks to warm your hearts even further.
A romantic, hand-carved cabin deep in the Powys woods, Dragon Cruck feels so far removed from everyday life that it requires minimal effort to leave your cares behind. Unwind under blankets on the deck and let the spectacular views down the beautiful Vyrnwy valley work their magic. Soft lanterns and solar lighting set the mood for love outside, while inside the cosy wood burner is well stocked by tree surgeon owner Mike’s wood supply. With a separate camp kitchen next to the cabin, you can whip up a delicious feast in the pizza oven or over the triple gas burner. All that’s left to do is to gaze into each other’s eyes by the fire bowl under clear starlit skies.
If cosy, chic surroundings and luxurious amenities get you in the mood for wedding anniversary celebrations, Dabinett Treehouse is the place for you. It’s snug but perfectly stylish with a Nespresso machine, Bramley toiletries, a Weber BBQ, luxury bed linen, fluffy robes and slippers. Nip to the neighbouring vineyard to pick up a bottle of something sparkling before hopping in the outdoor tub for a romantic soak under the stars. In the heart of the beautiful Mendips, you’re spoiled for days out on the doorstep – there are picturesque walks (and no less than three strollable pubs), the historic cathedral and Bishop’s Palace at Wells, and even a local goat farm where you can pick up some fabulous cheese.
You’ll understand why this unique enchanting cabin has been featured on George Clark’s Amazing Spaces. Inside it’s a feast for the senses with wall lamps from Finnish lapland, trolls from Iceland and two hairy bears ready to give you a hug (if you dare). There’s a giant telescope for stargazing and a round bath on the deck surrounded by plants and fairy lights. With no TV or wifi – there’s phone signal, don’t panic – you’ll feel cocooned and cared for in your quirky love bubble, especially when you open the owners’ welcome pack containing breakfast and books. If you’re ready for an anniversary adventure, try kayaking on Wimbleball Lake or climb Dunkery Beacon for stunning views. Grab some local gin at Exmoor distillery before scuttling back to Ursabear, to drift off to sleep as the stars twinkle through the window above your comfy bed.
