Our new glamping site at Belvoir Estate is rather unique. After all, it’s not every day you glamp next to a castle. Belvoir Castle has many similarities in design to Windsor Castle, a fact not lost on the producers of Netflix drama The Crown, who used Belvoir as a stand-in for the Queen’s home. It’s all a perfect, dramatic backdrop to our new glamping venture, a collection of fully-furnished bell tents, a quirky Gypsy Wagon and a homely Shepherds Hut, offering high-quality glamping accommodation fit for any King or Queen.
Our 5m bell tents, Shepherd’s Hut and Gypsy Wagon overlook the Vale of Belvoir (with stunning views and sunsets) and are located at The Engine Yard; a boutique retail site, which celebrates local food, drink and artisan shopping. At our new glamp site you can sip cocktails at The Balloon Bar, enjoy tasty woodfired pizzas at The Fuel Tank or a slap up meal at The Brasserie. However you choose to spend your stay here, you’re sure to have a royal time of it.
We can provide bed and breakfast packages which are continental boxes delivered to your tent or a table for breakfast at The Brasserie. The Fuel Tank can also offer a number of other catering extras.
We are surrounded by walking, cycling and so many wonderful activities. We’ve shared a few below to get you started planning your trip… see you soon!

We had such a lovely time. The facilities on the site are great - attention to detail in the items supplied was really good. The location is fantastic. We visited Belvoir Castle Gardens which are very beautiful and in close walking distance. There are also restaurants and cafes just a 3 minute walk away next to the site where we had delicious wood fire pizza and chocolate gelato. We will definitely be back.

Great location for this new site which is set within the grounds of the Belvoir Castle estate. The Bell Tents are all brand new, well equipped and extremely comfortable with ‘proper’ beds and good quality bedding (duvets and pillows). A newly built wash block provided us with an exclusive use wet room with shower, wc and basin. Uninterrupted views of the Belvoir valley and visits from local hares and pheasants, not to mention the sheep and goats in adjacent fields, kept us entertained whilst enjoying a glass of wine and a stunning sunset. Lots of good walks leading to canals and lovely pubs, as well as a good selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops onsite. Belvoir Castle is just a short walk away and definitely worth a visit; an excellent way to while away an afternoon. Castle is beautiful and grounds are really lovely. Friendly host/manager. Very pleasant stay.

Amazing stay! Beautiful location over looking open fields. Country walks on the door step. The site is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The shower block (which is more of an en-suite experience!) is cleaned twice a day and is the best I’ve used camping! The Engine Yard is onsite for food and drinks. Each tent has its own outside fire for those late evening bbq’s! Lovely hosts who are really friendly and helpful. They provide all the essentials such as a cooler, ice packs, cutlery, fire lighters etc for your stay. Would defiantly recommend 🙂

Inside you’ll find a snug space with rugs, lamps, a double bed with mattress and bedding, shower towel and hand towel per person as well as a luxury hamper. We can set up your tent to accommodate up to four people using additional camping mattresses – ideal for families or groups.
The perfect ‘back to nature’ get away with all the luxuries of the Engine Yard facilities on the doorstep. You will wake up to private views of the beautiful Belvoir Vale whilst enjoying your morning coffee. The Shepherd’s Hut is lockable, has storage space under the bed and electricity.
A unique and beautiful wagon offers a private garden and all the luxuries of the Engine Yard facilities on the doorstep. The Wagon is lockable, has storage space under the bed and electricity.
