Boutique woodland camping in beautiful yurts and bell tents at the foot of the South Downs

With a name like Plush Tents Glamping, we were hoping for some serious creature comforts at this glamping getaway in West Sussex... and we weren't disappointed. Nestled in woodland at the foot of the South Downs and close to the historic city of Chichester, this small but perfectly formed off-the-grid campsite at Densworth Farm offers beautiful yurts and bell tents set amongst trees and wild flowers in a picture-perfect spot.

With a range of different sized canvas creations to everyone from suit camping couples to families of up to four, each 'plush tent' comes lovingly prepared and waiting for you on arrival, complete with proper beds and all the bedding. For large groups there's the Mongolian-style Family Yurt decorated with ceiling drapes, natural coir flooring, scatter cushions, cosy blankets and an oak double bed (plus two floor mattresses that are ideal for kids). The antique wood burning stove adds to the authenticity and a hamper with tea and coffee making kit is an added thoughtful touch. The Family Bell tent is decorated with natural coir flooring, a memory foam mattress on futon base with two floor mattresses for the children. The tent is equipped with a coffee table, torch and sheepskin rug. There is also a smaller Friends Bell Tent that sleeps up to three adults.

Teaming up with Michelin-trained chef Sam Mahoney, Plush Tents offer glampers a delicious selection of breakfast and picnic hampers, freshly prepared and delivered to on the morning/day of your choice – the perfect way to kick-start your day. Then every evening a bonfire is lit which you can gather round with fellow guests and while away the hours. There's even a wood-fired hot tub to soak in – didn't they tell us this place was plush?

Set in the rolling West Sussex countryside there's plenty of local exploring to be done. Take a stroll and see if you can spot or, if you're lucky, hear Densworth's resident green woodpecker. Why not take advantage of mother nature's larder and arrange a foraging walk to collect your wild ingredients for a campfire feast. The Plush Tents team can point you in the right direction.

Whether you're after a romantic break, a fun-filled weekend with the family or a group getaway from the big city, Plush Tents provide the perfect combination of back-to-nature camping with fuss-free glamping. So go on, treat yourself.
