2017
Winner's Name: 
Durrell Wildlife Campsite

Glamping Site of the Year Winner

Part of the Durrell Wildlife Park, the camp consists of 12 canvas geo domes set in a beautifully landscaped area. Each unit, named after different Lemur species, is sited in its own separate area offering good privacy. Inside is a king-size bed, two singles, a wood-burning stove and clothing storage space. Set on wooden decking, they have their own additional pod with high quality toilet, wash basin and shower plus a spacious fully-equipped kitchen. Smaller tipis are available for extra children or friends. Guests have complimentary access to the Durrell Wildlife Zoo and have use of the zoo’s excellent Café Firefly, which serves breakfasts, lunches and early evening meals, plus takeaway pizzas and Thai food. They can also expect a remarkable level of customer service from a dedicated team, who go out of their way to ensure guests enjoy a complete holiday experience. Lemur Lodge, a large safari tent, serves as reception, meeting place and function area, and has a decked area right next to the zoo – you can see lemurs in the trees. Durrell Wildlife Camp offers quality accommodation, excellent customer service and a unique holiday experience and is a worthy winner of the AA’s first Glamping Award.
