The Heart of England is home to stunning forests, the dramatic Peak District National Park, the rolling Cotswolds and a host of adventurous family days out. There’s so much countryside to immerse yourself in, so why not start by booking a glamping site in the heart of this beautiful region?
The Peak District is home to a network of caverns and caves, which can be explored in a variety of ways. Take a boat trip through the underground Speedwell Cavern or visit the Heights of Abraham Park to take a cable car ride over the whole valley. Visit the Forest of Dean and try your hand at a treetop adventure course with Go Ape, or see if you can find Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest.
Thrill seekers will definitely want to make time to visit the amazing Alton Towers, the UK’s biggest theme park. You’ll find glamping sites just down the road from the park, meaning you can make the most of a day out there. Or, for something completely different, visit the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral or the mysterious Stonehenge. There’s so much to keep families busy and happy across the Heart of England.
Glamping allows you to make the most of the Heart of England and the amazing landscape by putting you right in the centre of it. Our recommended glamping companies – Ready Camp, CoolStays and Canopy and Stars offer all the luxuries of home with little extras thrown in to create special family holidays.
