Glamping Barrel Pods

Glamping barrel


Looking to get away for the weekend?

Or just want to continue the Melbury Vale experience after a weekend wine tour?

Why not stay in one of our glamping barrels?!



Peaceful and exclusive, there are just three timber barrels available from Easter to September.
Named after our vines, Pinot Noir, Solaris and Rondo, they are set on the hillside in the beautiful rolling Dorset countryside, with the vineyard just above and the gently babbling Stirkel brook below.

Inside glamping wine barrel




Each barrel sleeps 2 people (double) and has an interior seating/dining area as well as two exterior verandah seats,  so you can unwind over a cool glass from Melbury Vale’s range of wines, watching the wildlife and sunset. Or you could celebrate  a special event with a glass of our award winning English sparkling wine and star gaze whilst listening out for owls and staying cosy with your own brazier log fire outside.



To make your glamping visit easy, there are WC and shower facilities in the winery, (including disabled access); and whilst you are welcome to bring your own stove to cook out,  we also offer shared, self-service catering facilities in our ‘gypsy caravan’; complete with crockery, cutlery, glasses, utensils, kettle, toaster and microwave.

All you need to do is bring yourselves, air-beds or roll mats, bedding, towels, toiletries and food for a relaxing break away!
