We are a small glamping site nestled in orchards surrounded by the Cotswolds bringing a bit of class to the world of glamping. You can expect a quiet getaway location with a real sense of home away from home staying in a 1950’s Caravan, The Warwick Knight, with its own roof garden, sleeping up to 4, (as seen on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces), or alternatively try Belle, our cosy Bell Tent sleeping up to 5. We love to extend a warm welcome to our guests. When you stay with us we provide you with an opportunity to relax and recharge in complete comfort. Go for long walks, laze in the hammock, watch the wildlife, explore the nearby orchards, collect fresh eggs for your breakfast, experience a memorable horse and cart ride to the local pub or head into Gloucester or Cheltenham for a bit more of the urban experience. We would love for you to come and stay, please do get in touch!
After a stint travelling and living in London, Ali still hankered for the countryside so returned home to her Gloucestershire roots where she met Rich in 2001. They enjoyed life where Ali worked in the travel industry and Rich in agricultural engineering. They went on to have two children - Jasper who is now 6 and Monty who is 4. Definite country boys, Monty was able to ride bare back by 2 and Jasper's first word was tractor and could name ten types of the tractor by the age he was 3. Their down-time to relax was experienced by holidaying in a bow top gypsy caravan where they could feel at one with nature- it was about being able to switch off and kick back. It was at this point the concept started to develop about The Glamping Orchard. They wanted to create a real chance for couples and families alike to experience peaceful surroundings, stunning views and create many lasting memories of their own.
Be passionate, personable and have the desire to achieve. Be prepared for hard work, tackle challenges as they arise and be true to yourself. Follow your business plan and work towards the targets that you have set yourself. You can do it and in my experience well thought out things that make your heart sing do succeed.
