Luxury glamping site at Hill Farm, Stoke Ash approved
Planning permission has been granted for up to eight glamping tents in a Suffolk village.
The luxury glamping site will be located at Hill Farm in Stoke Ash, with the owners stating that the accommodation “is to be scattered amongst existing vegetation, providing a sympathetic design and layout in relation to the surrounding area”.
Hill Farm, which was put up for sale in 2018, is surrounded by more than 150 acres of land.
Each tent will be no more than five metres in diameter and will be standing for six months every summer.
The exact manufacturer has not been confirmed.
The plans also show that three rustic shed-style structures will provide toilets, showers and basins for holidaymakers.
Owners say that the site will “promote local tourism and encourage economic development within the district”.
The word glamping first appeared in the UK in 2005 and was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016.
A combination of the words glamour and camping, it represents a style of camping, with amenities.
