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.
