2 Glamping

It’s stunning views all day, every day at Tone Valley View Glamping – where an afternoon of bathing in a wood-fired hot tub overlooking the titular valley, transitions into an evening of admiring the stars from the comfort of your cosy bed. Positioned along the outskirts of the Blackdown Hills in rural Somerset, this adults-only glampsite is ideal for a couple’s getaway – guests can enjoy romantic rambles around this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, before retreating back to camp for a glass of wine around the firepit.

The site’s stargazing bell tents are a cut above the rest, with the roof peeling back to reveal the starlit sky thanks to the region’s low light pollution. There are only two tents to ensure privacy, each boasting a comfy double bed with all provided bedding and your own private spot on the lawn with outdoor seating from which to admire the sunset. For a small extra charge, you can even have your hosts prelight the hot tub, ensuring that it'll be ready for you to jump in as soon as you've arrived.

And from the hot tub to the on-site facilities, you won't need to share a thing here – all amenities are for your own personal use. This includes the bathroom and kitchenette, both located in your own private converted stable, and including all the home comforts and essentials you'll need from a toilet and shower to a fridge and kettle. 

Nearby, you're in a prime position to navigate the Somerset scenery. Hire a bike from the site to go exploring – a cycling route will take you past the nearby Wellington Monument, towering above the edge of the Blackdown Hills – or drive into the lovely county town of Taunton, located in the heart of the West Country and a hub of history, independent shops, and places to eat.

Site 1 - Tone Valley View Glamping
Great stay in stunning location
Lovely stay in an amazing setting. The view from Raffles tent whilst sat in the wood-fired hot tub was amazing. Really comfy bed and a spacious clean tent. The washing and cooking facilities up at the stable were great. Jimmy was a fantastic host, who gave us a thorough tour on arrival and was easy to contact if needed. Loved our stay here and will be recommending to friends!
From the host
Two stargazing bell tents on a newly opened adult only glamping site. You will be booking one of two tents in a newly set up glamping site. The tents are lotus 5m Stargazer bell tents with Outbacker wood burners. They are truly beautiful, and they make the most of the spectacular views and stars at night. Each tent has its own solar panel with a power station (like a big power bank) that provides power to run lights and charging of things like phones and tablets. This is limited to 350w at any one time so something like a kettle would not work but charging items like phones or tablets is no issue. Each Tent will has a double bed. All linens and towels are provided. We even include extra blankets and a hot water bottle. Each Tent has its own plot marked out with newly planted hedges (these are still growing so please expect to be able to see through / over them). Each plot has a fire pit which can be cooked over and a wood burning hot tub. The hot tub will need to be lit and heated by you during your stay. This will take between 3 and 4 hours from cold but less if warm already. We can pre-light it and bring it up to temperature before your arrival on day one, a charge of £20 for this service applies to cover our time and the wood used. In addition to this you get your own stable! The horses have moved out and a new bathroom (Shower, Toilet, Sink, Towel rad) and Kitchenette (Fridge with ice box, Sink, Twin hot plate, Toaster and Kettle) have been installed. Each is dedicated to a pod, so no sharing needed. They have been insulated and have mains electric heating and electric hot water. The tents are a short walk from the stables, so we have a stone path connecting them and we give you a lantern. There is also a carpark area with parking for one car per tent. Around the carpark we have planted a wildlife friendly hedge. Please note we provide you with some wood, fire starters and matches free at the start of your stay next to the tent. We have bundles of wood and fire starters in the stable should you need more these are charged at £6 per bundle. At the end of the year we will add up all the bundle sold and for each 5 bundle bought we will fund the planting of a tree through the national trust. Please note we do not take group bookings across the two tents.
Nearby attractions

Taunton's a scenic town to explore, with its waterfront French Weir Park providing a pleasant space to bring a picnic or go for a stroll along the edge of the River Tone. Here you can also visit the Museum of Somerset, which encompasses over 400 million years of history charting from the prehistoric period to the present day, and also home to Somerset Military Museum. At camp, you can hire a couple of bikes for a trip around the local area, and within 30 minutes you can reach the village of Hemyock, the largest in the Blackdown Hills with the ruins of the medieval stronghold Hemyock Castle at its heart.

Food and drink

Wellington has a bunch of popular places to eat and drink in its town centre, all only a five-minute drive away. The Green Dragon is arguably its most popular, serving reasonably priced pub grub along with some intriguing additions such as turkey schnitzel. There's also an enclosed courtyard beer garden for warm summer afternoons and evenings. Taunton's also got plenty of places to grab a bite and a beer, too, including the Ring of Bells, popular with cricket fans due to its close proximity to the Somerset cricket ground. Expect wooden floors, open fires, lively bars, and some delicious twists on pub classics from its menu – the steak is heartily recommended.
