Glamping and Somerset go together like vintage cheddar and West Country cider. It’s meant to be. Stay in a treehouse, cabin, yurt, shepherd’s hut or even a train carriage for adventures that take you from sandy beaches and rolling hills, to deep gorges and wild moorland. All steeped in Arthurian legend with a dash of Georgian splendour thrown in. Our glamping holidays in Somerset bring you comfort, peace and wilderness in equally delicious dollops.
The comforting crackle of an open fire under starry skies, the endorphin high as you sink into a warm hot tub on a cold night, and the feeling of calm as you sip your morning coffee with just a few sheep for company. Getting up close and personal with the natural world is why we love glamping. Some of the decadent extras in our Somerset places are why we really, really love it.
Everyone here at Canopy & Stars loves to travel – as you might’ve guessed. We went around the company to ask our colleagues, where next? And why? So you can go ahead, and beat us to it.
Somerset covers not one but three designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty; the Mendips, Blackdown, and the Quantock Hills. Between them they offer a wealth of pretty villages, open countryside, and a sandy Somerset beach or two, making glamping in Somerset is a popular choice for those who want to immerse themselves in beauty and tranquillity.

Why book a glamping break in Somerset? We’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to. The endless research can be enough to put you off booking a getaway in the first place, so we’ve carefully selected glamping places in Somerset that tick all the boxes. Gorgeously scenic locations, peace and quiet, all the home comforts you need, plus that extra something special. We specialise in finding those playful, one-of-a-kind features that you’ll always remember, like an unexpected Finnish sauna – as found in one of our Somerset treehouses.
Glamping in Somerset with us Somerset is synonymous with relaxed, good living and our wild glamping places reflect the locals’ ability to do life well. We’ve got a rooftop terrace perched in the tree canopy, a double-width shepherd’s hut with a giant copper bath and a sunken tub overlooking a swimming pond. We personally inspect every place, staying overnight for the full experience to make sure they meet our high standards.
Is Somerset worth visiting? When one county can offer the Georgian splendour of Bath, the mystic serenity of Glastonbury Tor, spectacular walks along The Mendip Way and dramatic descents into deep caves, you know you’re on to a winner. The fact that it’s also a creative hub, a foodie paradise and throws several pretty epic festivals is the cherry on top of the West Country ice cream.
