We Love… Glamping domes from TruDomes

Glamping dome interior from TruDomes

TruDomes’ Classic (5.88m) and Classic Plus (6.7m) geodesic glamping domes are made in the UK by a family run business with a 30 year manufacturing history. Created from aircraft grade aluminium, rather than steel, and PVC treated to be flame retardant, weather resistant and lacquered to ensure longevity, these domes are low maintenance with a luxurious light, glossy finish.

Additional curtains provide privacy and insulation to the front window, while lined aluminium insulation provides an attractive and warm internal skin ensuring a cosy stay for guests in cooler climates.

Domes are available in six colours and the internal insulation and curtains in seven. Woodstoves/insulated flues, solar air vents and solar led lighting are also available.
