Group glamping is the new friendcation, and Cherrygrove in the beautiful county of Somerset offers some of the best yurt glamping facilities to accommodate your family birthday bash or hen do. Sleeping up to 32 people in 8 abodes, this collection of colourful structures sit gently in the rolling countryside just south of the Quantock Hills, allowing for walks with a view, sunsets to die for, and unrestricted star-gazing around a fire with friends.
The site consists of two Safari tents one Geodome and five Mongolian yurts, each with its own hand-painted roof pools in vivid, enticing colours, and decorated furniture, colourful rugs and luxurious linens, drawing the eye and comforting the mind. In addition, a canvas-covered geodesic dome sits majestically in its own corner of the site, affording a family of four a spacious and unique glamping experience. This beautiful formation, made up of triangular elements and an intricate lattice frame, is an interesting alternative to the more traditional yurts, and is as captivating as the beautiful heath and combe-filled countryside around it.
And with fantastic group facilities such as a large bathroom with several hot shower cubicles and flushing toilets, as well as a large communal kitchen and dining area in one barn, and a relaxed chillout space in another, Cherrygrove is the perfect blend of immersing yourself in the outstanding national beauty of the Somerset hills just north of Taunton, with all the comforts of home at your fingertips.
