Name: Glampotel Sanctum On The Green
Location: United Kingdom
When you feel like you need to head back to nature for some peace, quiet and general R&R, glamping is the obvious choice, and where better to glamp than in the grounds of a luxury hotel where you can use all their facilities! This is the offering at Glampotel’s Sanctum on the Green Hotel in the beautiful Berkshire Countryside.
The central location is a huge plus with this site; it’s just 45 minutes from Central London and 30 minutes from Heathrow Airport and yet you are surrounded by the Berkshire Countryside. The site is in the small village of Cookham Dean with the historic market town of Henley just minutes away. The surrounding beech covered hillsides contain many idyllic English villages, rolling countryside, woodlands, pubs and country houses as well as lots of cycling and walking trails.
Style & Character
The charming canvas cottages are tucked away with their own secluded private deck surrounded by a wooded area just a minutes’ walk from the main hotel. The canvas cottages themselves are really something; wooden floors, custom wooden furniture, a wood burning stove, your own private decking area and of course those stunning countryside surroundings.
Service & Facilities
I’m not sure facilities at a glamping site get much better than this; you have full access to the hotel’s beautiful outdoor heated swimming pool and hot tub, as well as their bar and the Godiva House restaurant, plus their complimentary Wi-Fi and the car park.
The cottages are managed by Glampotel, the leading eco-tourism glamping hotel chain across the UK and Europe. Glampotel combines the best of sleeping under canvas with the luxury of a hotel and at this site that really couldn’t be closer to the truth as you literally can take advantage of all a hotel’s facilities! This also means that you benefit from the hotel’s excellent service and be really spoilt while you always enjoy being surrounded by nature.
Most importantly, your bed; well with Glampotel you get a wonderfully comfy king-sized bed with hotel-quality Egyptian cotton sheets, pillow cases and a hypo-allergenic duvet. You also have a private en-suite bathroom with instant hot water shower, hot and cold running water and a modern eco-friendly toilet, plus lovely fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries.
Food & Drink
Most Glampotel sites offer a BBQ and full cooking facilities but as this site has the rather fab benefit of being able to use the hotel’s restaurant, they instead leave you to enjoy the restaurant there or why not order room service! The Godiva House Dining Room & Bar serves traditional British cuisine favourites with a modern twist. And breakfast doesn’t get overlooked either; freshly prepared by the hotel kitchen staff, it is delivered to your cottage wherever you request it so you can relax and enjoy your breakfast on your own private deck as the nature around you wakes for the morning; what a totally blissful start to the day.
