Wigwam® Holidays Charnwood Forest - Glamping near Leicester


Located a mere 20-minute drive from the city of Leicester, Wigwam® Holidays Charnwood offers a peaceful respite from your hectic everyday life in a lush woodland setting. Charnwood Forest in North-West Leicestershire is just five minutes from the M1 J22, yet it remains beautifully unspoiled and makes for the perfect spot for your glamping experience in beautiful Leicestershire.


We have six ensuite Wigwam® camping pods that are heated and equipped with essentials like a fridge, kettle and microwave for a truly fuss-free holiday. You can sit around your own firepit and cook up some campsite grub before enjoying your meal around a picnic table. Feel free to bring your furry friend with you on your glamping holiday - dogs are welcome here at Charnwood Forest!

What to do while glamping in Leicestershire

Our glamping pods are tucked away beneath majestic mature trees and offer great access to miles and miles of footpaths through the surrounding ancient woodlands. You can take in the simple beauty of the parklands, reservoirs and canals on a country walk or travel back in time by visiting unspoilt villages or taking a journey on one of the area’s heritage railways.


The Charnwood Forest glamping site is within walking distance of Bradgate Deer Park, the ancestral home of Lady Jane Grey. Apart from visiting the ruins of the 16th-century Bradgate House, you can spot the adorable deer that call the park their home or have a picnic on the banks of River Lin.


The nearby city of Leicester is also well worth a visit. You can have a truly out of this world experience at the National Space Centre, offering fun for the whole family, or take in history at the Richard III visitor centre, opened after the king’s remains were found at the location in 2012.


Wigwam® Holidays Charnwood Forest offers the perfect base for exploring everything that Leicestershire has to offer.
