Discover a harmonious blend of natural beauty and historic allure while glamping near Rutland.
England's smallest county, Rutland is a glamping enthusiast's dream. Nestle into a geodesic dome with a private kitchen and bathroom to enjoy picturesque views of Rutland Water, one of Europe's largest artificial lakes. Glampers can then spend the day sailing, fishing, or bird watching at Rutland Water Nature Reserve. Or glamp near the grandeur of Burghley House in a bell tent or safari lodge that offers the charm of the Elizabethan era combined with modern luxuries. Explore the magnificent house by day, and then retreat to one of these glamping sites that come with plush mattresses, fairy lights, and a private outdoor shower. For even more historically rich camping, visit Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire. Bask in its history right from the grounds in a riverside canvas bell tent, uniquely adorned and furnished with a super king bed, two floor mattresses, and a fully-equipped outdoor camp kitchen. Then, take advantage of the direct access to the river for activities like wild swimming, canoeing, and paddleboarding.
