The SUPERDOME, the OAK dome and the GREEN dome.
There are three domes available here for between 5 and 8 people each. If you take all three you can sleep around 20 people.
The first is the SUPERDOME - which is 'super' in every sense of the word… super-sized, super-fun, but above all super-cool!
The Superdome is on two levels with beds on both levels surrounding a fabulous wood burning stove. In the roof you’re all at sea in five super-comfy 'pipe-cots', normally found on ocean going yachts, surrounding a circular hanging double bed. All accessed by a little spiral staircase. Down below, more bed space – for those with a fear of heights – and a wood-burning rocket mass heater to heat the circular bench where jolly groups can sit and chat.
To one side is a neat, wheelchair accessible, ensuite with flushing loo with two wood-fired showers,
The Superdome sits in the middle of a small camp of 10 other domes called the Dome Garden, just north of Bristol, in the heart of the Royal Forest Of Dean. You can read a lot more about everything that goes on here on the main Dome Garden website.
For food there is a small restaurant in the middle. It operates throughout the main part of the season, and serves wonderful organic breakfasts in the morning, as well as a series of 'forest inspired' wood-fired food in the evening. That includes everything from pizza nights where we teach you how to make genuine Neopolitan pizzas, to slow cooked, sous-vide, joints of sirloin finished on a smoking grill. If that's not tempting, you can fend for yourselves in your own fully-equipped forest kitchen with its magical stick-powered griddle and a big table for everyone to sit around. Larger groups of more than 10 people need to book a minimum of 2 meals in The Lodge - which are a very reasonable price and, we hope not a hardship!!
In the main part of the season the Superdome is part of a lively and energetic, mud fuelled, adrenalin-fest, full of people and children, eating, cooking, playing, and sometimes singing, in the big central firepit. The rest of the time it could be a haven of peace and quiet, deep in the forest, where the only thing to disturb you will be the hooting of the owls at night and the dawn chorus in the mornings.
The second dome is the Oak Dome. It has 4 of our amazing hanging beds and can take 7 or 8 people. It also has an ensuite with a shower and is just down the path from the Superdome. If you're a family of 5 or 6 this is ideal for you and if you're a group of up to 16 they are ideal to take together.
Finally you can also add in The Green Dome which will take another 4 or 5 people. hence bringing your party size up to the full 20.
Breaks operate from Monday for Fridays only with weekend breaks of three nights and midweek breaks of four.
Prices quoted here are for the four nights midweek break in any given season.
Some customers don't, or cant, use the final night itself but are free to use the dome and be on site for the whole day without being chased out by cleaners early in the morning.
Full details are available on the main Dome Garden web site - or by giving us a call.
NB The prices quoted are for 1 dome sleeping 8 people so for more people the rate multiples accordingly.Get the full listing »
