Glamping Kent

Elmley in Kent is a national nature reserve with Glamping on a family farm. The 3,200 acre estate based on an island in the Thames is situated away from the bustle of North Kent, just an hour from London. A vast wilderness with a spectacular landscape, soul stirring skies and breath-taking wildlife provide a truly inspirational escape. It is a very special place, and provides an extraordinary setting for a special event, weekend escape or simply to immerse yourself in nature for the day.

The huts are designed to make the most of the views and to be as comfortable as possible. The friendly owners aim to make sure stays are just what you need, whether it be quiet and relaxed or fun and adventurous and they have thought of most things, but if there is anything else you’d like, just ask.

The owners have two young children and live on the farm along with Max, the farm terrier, a number of chickens and hopefully soon some pigs. You’ll see Gareth out on the quad bike most days, working with the livestock and surveying the wildlife, so do ask if you’d like a tour or have any questions about the farm.
