Where to Go Glamping in the UK and Ireland

Retreat to the countryside with hotel-level amenities at three comfort camping spots.

Epcod Boutique Retreat, Scotland

Ecopod Boutique Retreat, Scotland

Tucked away in Appin on Scotland’s west coast, this retreat’s two open-plan pods are nestled among birch trees. Its 70-square-metre domes feature kitchens, cedar-decked bathrooms and handmade hot tubs. The pod’s windows offer a panoramic view of Loch Linnhe and a medieval castle.

Caalm Camp, England

Take the 2.5-hour train ride from London to this family-run farm retreat in Dorset’s idyllic countryside. Here, guests can stay in traditional Mongolian yurts overlooking farm fields. The site’s amenities include a play area, communal kitchen and private shower in a converted hay barn. Spend nights by the fire or stargazing through the yurt’s skylight. 

Teapot Lane Glamping, Ireland

This rural-woodland glamping site offers campers the option of a vintage caravan (camping trailer), yurt or cottage stay and even a tree house with kitchenette and wraparound deck. Three hours northwest of Dublin, it also features spa treatments, herb and fairy gardens, hammocks and nightly campfires around which guests share stories.
