Deb M-W Brilliant!! Set at the back of the site the three Hobbity Domes are in a quiet area. The looks on my sons faces (10 & 17 years old), when Jonny showed us was priceless! Both big fans of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit this made a great alternative to our usual tent break and warmer too... More

We came for a long weekend in august, staying in one of the relatively new hobbity holes. We had a two year old and a seven year old and they LOVED it. All the swings and the zip wire kept them entertained for hours on end. (All right, less so the two year old, but he liked watching and swinging... More

We see ourselves as regulars having visited the Dome Garden many times. However, this is the first time we have stayed in the Hobbit Dome and we found it very unique and cosy for a romantic experience. Remarkably toasty with the small wood burner and being awoken by natural light through the port holes was lovely. Every time we visit... More

My two young teen boys and I arrived late on bank holiday Friday night. We then had two more fabulous nights at the Dome Garden, staying in a Hobbity Dome. We cycled and walked, had two dinners provided by the lovely blokes and their families at the Lodge. Cooked our own breakfasts on the wood-fired camp stove. Loved it! And... More

Our second visit, and it definitely lived up to our memories. The site is looking beautiful: amazing plants and flowers, willow dens and tunnels, free ranging chickens, rope swings and zip wires, not to mention the cool geodesic domes - all nestled in the forest. As before the kids made friends within minutes and had such a good time out... More

Was just wonderful to see the kids being kids, playing outside, making friends, playing on the zip wire and the rope swings hanging from the trees. They loved looking for firewood in the forest and helping to light the fires and there are lots of fires to light! A wood burner in the dome, a wood fire to heat your... More

We've been here twice now and every time we come back it just gets better and better. There are a whole lot of new things this time, a brilliant new tyre frame made out of recycled tyres which wobbles when the kids climb on it, a really cool sculptural fire pit that echoes when you sing (either that or it...

Just back from mid week trip to the Dome Garden. We were a small family unit and had a truly amazing time. The Domes were cosy and we loved lighting all the fires.

We stayed here as part of a group of 11 for a 50th birthday. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and checked in but unfortunately our group and the other group there were the first of the season and it was fairly obvious they weren't really ready for us. Luckily most of us were hardy campers and had brought... More
