The Glamping Orchard

Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England

Unique and cleverly converted 1950's caravan with roof garden (sleeps 2-4) and cosy bell tent (for up to 5) in ideal location in the Severn Vale.

THIS LISTING IS NO LONGER ACTIVE, but we feature the same accommodation on QuirkyAccom under the titles - Glamping Orchard Belle and Warwick Knight.


Having already featured on George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, this 1950's caravan called the Warwick Knight is extremely rare and the only renovated one in the world with a fantastic roof garden. It is located on a small, family-friendly site in the heart of the Severn Vale with views across the orchards.

The Warwick Knight is the perfect glamping experience for couples or families of 4. During the loving restoration a unique roof garden was added and is the perfect to relax on a hot summer day. The hand-crafted interior is cosy and welcoming, with a warming woodburner, plenty of living space, a double bed, two cosy bunk bed pods and lots of natural lighting. The rooftop garden is the perfect spot for stargazing at night and the relaxing experience in and outside the caravan is enhanced by luxury soft furnishings, plush duvets and the highest standard décor. The kitchen is spacious and equipped with a gas cooker, hob and grill, fridge, sink, cooking utensils, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery, coffee, tea, milk...

There is also a fire pit outside the caravan which can be used as a BBQ and all necessary tools are provided. There is a private wood-fired shower and sink cabin only 25 metres away and the private compost toilet is adjacent to the caravan.

If needed, a travel cot can snuggly fit in next to the double bed.

There is a second accommodation called Belle, a cosy Bell Tent which is also extremely popular with guests. Up to 5 people can sleep here under cotton canvas without the stress of traditional camping. The tent measures 3m in height and 5m in diameter, has a double bed with comfortable mattress and luxurious bed linen. Pillows are provided for two single futon beds and an extra bed or cot can be added. To add to the warmth and the welcoming atmosphere there is a woodburning stove.

Belle has a fire pit outside which can also be used as a BBQ with all tools provided. The private kitchen is fully equipped as well and the private bathroom with wood-fired shower and compost toilet is only a short walk from the tent.

Both accommodations have picturesque views over beautiful countryside and are only a short walk from the River Severn. The Warwick Knight and Belle are the perfect starting points for long walks and to explore the wildlife and the nearby orchards in a truly family-friendly environment, with children and parents being able to meet the friendly farm animals as well.

Historic Gloucester is only 5 miles from here, and equally easy to reach are Berkeley and Berkeley Castle, Cheltenham Spa as the cultural centre of the Cotswolds, the charming green town of Frampton on Severn with its impressive Tudor and Georgian architecture, the market town of Cirencester and many others.

For the Warwick Knight, prices start from £95-£145 per night. For Belle, prices start from £70-£130 per night. There is usually a two night minimum stay in low season with a 3 night minimum stay at weekends and 4 night minimum weekday stay during peak times. Belle is not available in winter.

Belle also welcomes dogs for a small additional charge of £25 for one and £35 for two. It has a secure area where dogs can roam freely and provides dog bowls and a waterproof bed. 

Groups of up to 9 people can book the two accommodations together.
