Blissful bell tent camping among the apple blossom of an organic orchard slap bang in the heart of cider country
If you're going to stay in cider country, then what could be better than glamping in a orchard? Almost half of the UK's apples are used in the brewing of cider nowadays and, here in East Herefordshire, you needn't travel far in summer to find apple pickers busy harvesting their fruit. Not that it's anything new. When Caesar invaded England in 55BCE, he discovered ancient Celts sipping on a sweet and pungent crab apple brew and it wasn't long before the Roman troops were shipping the stuff back home. Even in Rome they were celebrating the Herefordshire apple harvest. Nestled on the edge of a small orchard of pear and apple trees, the three bell tents at Perry Tree Glamping offer a homely window into the scenic, cidery world of rural Herefordshire today. In late spring, the organic trees form a bright, humming backdrop of pretty apple blossom tended by busy bumble bees, while summer brings the full fruit itself, dangling appetisingly from the branches. The bell tents, meanwhile, pitched on raised, flat bases, look not in towards the trees, but out and over the hedgerows to the countryside beyond, while hammocks, suspended between tree trunks provide an extra spot for kicking back and taking in the view. The decision to keep the glamping site to just three bell tents affords ample privacy and gives it all a rather exclusive feel. It's matched, of course, by some of the luxuries involved. Inside, the bell tents have proper double beds, wood-burning stoves and the obligatory dressing of fairy lights and bunting, while, outside, the facilities – toilets, showers and an area for your campfire – still ensure it all has an outdoorsy, 'camping' ambience. Belinda the donkey, who chomps her way through the adjacent field certainly approves. She's also a big fan of all the new found attention. If you're not sampling local tipple on one of the nearby cider tours, then walking in the Mendip Hills or touring the historic towns – the timbered buildings of Ledbury or the grand cathedrals of Hereford and Worcester – is always a safe bet to occupy your time. Perry Tree Glamping also welcomes you to bring your bikes along so that you can really explore the area. Bring your wicker, handle-bar basket and you can even stock up on local goods, cider and crab apple jelly along the way. After all, when in Rome...

From the host
*Exclusive hire and the orchard to yourselves*These are crazy times, and more than ever, we all need a little getaway and some space. That's why this year, like last, we will again be offering the opportunity to book the entire place to yourselves. With only three bell tents, the place can be your own offering beauty, seclusion and space. En suite facilities can be available, along with additional tent pitches if needed for your group. Please get in touch to find out more.*Always enquire about dates, as my calendar isn't always correct* Perry Tree Glamping is situated in the heart of rural Herefordshire, on our tradition family run farm. Come stay in one of our luxurious canvas bell tents, which offer all the comforts of home with a rural chic twist. Comfy beds, a wood burning stove and hot running showers all come as standard, not to mention the fire pits for roasting marsh mallows! When not taking in the tranquillity of the organic orchard in which the site sits, the historic market towns of Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye are close by, with the Welsh boarders just a little further. We may not have electricity on site, but here you can truly recharge! 
Nearby attractions
Perry Tree Glamping is a 10-minute drive from the historic black and white market town of Ledbury, where you can get all your daily needs as well as exploring the boutique independent shops. Weston’s Cider Mill (01531 660233) is just down the road, home to the world famous Stowford Press cider, or, if you’re feeling up to it, take on the Oliver’s Cider Tour (07768 732026) just 5 minutes down the road – an artisan cider producer not to be taken lightly! New Bridge Farm Park (01531 670780) is great for the family – think tractor rides, playing in straw bales and picnicking among the animals when the sun's out. It's also 20 minutes to Hereford, home to yet another cider tour as well as, more famously, grand Hereford Cathedral, which houses the Mappa Mundi (01432 374200), the largest medieval map in the world.
Food and drink
Charcoal BBQ’s are available to buy on-site and there is a simple camping gas stove for use. Tea and coffee making facilities are also provided. Elsewhere, The Hop Pocket (01531 640323) and The Nest (01531 670816) are both around a 5-minute drive and both fantastic little farm shops to pick up all your locally produced supplies, while Ledbury (10 minutes) has everything else covered from large supermarkets to local butchers. The Majors Arms (01531 640261) is the nearest pub, 5 minutes drive away, and has one of the best drinking view points in the county, quite possibly the country. For something a little more refined The Oak Inn (01531 640954; 7 minute drive) in Staplow or The Verzon Hotel (01531 670381; 5 minute drive) are great choices.
