5 glamping spots in Britain easily accessed by wheelchair

Tuesday 26 September 2017

Looking for one-of-a-kind lodging that’s accessible for ALL travellers? Look no further! From a clifftop pod in Pembrokeshire to a log in Ludlow, we rounded up Britain’s best wheelchair-accessible glamping locations.

Fishguard Bay Resort in Pembrokeshire, Wales 

To experience all the perks of camping (peaceful surroundings, stunning views, and freshly-grilled grub) without all the fuss of actually camping, consider booking a Glamping Pod at Fishguard Bay Resort. Sleeping up to two adults and two children, each cute and cozy pod features heating, refrigeration, a kettle, a tavble, plus a television — but we have a feeling you’ll be too busy watching the sun set over the crystal blue waters of the Pembrokeshire coast to bother with re-runs. Perfect for that romantic break away…

Meon Springs Glamping in Hampshire, England 

For a family-vacation that you’ll remember for years to come, head to Hampshire's South Downs and stay in an authentic Mongolian yurt on a working dairy farm (you can even watch the cows being milked!) Outfitted with comfortable beds, a wood burning stove, and felt-insulated walls, each specially-imported yurt offers the perfect balance of warmth and ventilation—plus stunning views of nearby Hen Wood and Old Winchester Hill. Spend your days fly-fishing, hiking, roasting marshmallows open an open fire, or making new friends in the Yurtery – a communal area in the center of the yurt village with plenty of comfy chairs, games, and toys to go around.

The Old Summer Dairy in Somerset, England

Set in a private field overlooking Glastonbury Tor, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a campground as peaceful as The Old Summer Dairy. Outfitted with hammocks, fire-pits, grills, picnic tables, and a stunning view of Glastonbury Tor, this quirky lodging is the perfect pick for travelers looking for a place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Whether you prefer to spread out a blanket and gaze at the stars, or take a dip in the nearby river, there are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you entertained throughout your stay. Plus, you’re only a short drive to Cheddar Gorge, the Jurassic Coast, and numerous quirky towns.

Annie’s Cabin in Ludlow, England

Looking for somewhere eco-friendly that’s still oh-so luxurious? Then prepared to be wowed by Annie’s Cabin in the market town of Ludlow. Constructed from Douglas Fir logs grown in Wales, the cabin also features a wood-pellet stove, solar water-heating, an induction hob and LED/low energy lighting. Thoughtfully designed to include extra-wide doors, wooden floors, and no steps, both the property and outdoor patio can be easily access by wheelchair.

Powys Pods in Powys, Wales

Have you always wanted to drive along the winding roads in the Brecon Beacons, visit the Radnor Ring, or paddle down the River Wye? Then you’ll love spending a few days at Powys Pods. Located in close proximity to a range of hiking trails, pubs, spas, and the quirky book-loving town of Hay-on-Wye, there’s plenty to do and see for all types of travelers. To maximize your comfort, each wheelchair-accessible pod come equipped with heating, lighting, showers, and electric sockets – plus a slew of shared on-site amenities.
