Dark Sky Glamping offers glamorous glamping breaks at beautiful High House Farm, near the impossibly pretty village of Matfen in the Northumbrian countryside. Forget everything you know about camping and let the romance of our white canvas bells create an experience to be cherished. Combine the luxury of ready made, styled accommodation with the escapism of the great outdoors. Your beautiful Bell comes complete with a real bed (no sleeping on the floor at Dark Sky Glamping!), cosy bed linen, fluffy rugs, warm blankets, twinkly lights and gorgeous outdoor furniture for sitting out under the stars.
For our autumn and winter season (from 2nd October 2020) your Bell will be heated, perfect for warming yourself up after a walk in the crisp fresh air. Also from October, you will have your own fire pit so you can spend your evenings sat out beside a warm fire, under the stars, toasting a marshmallow or two. We provide a small stove for your morning cuppa, a kettle, a cool box and a BBQ.
As part of our efforts to keep you Covid safe, you will have your own private luxury shower and posh portaloo so there's no sharing of facilities.
