Longleat’s Festival of Light and Family Glamping in Dorset

Christmas is, without a doubt, a magical time of  year for all the family. Every aspect of your family glamping stay at Caalm Camp during the festive season is guaranteed to be magical.

Why Choose Family Glamping at Christmas?

Caalm Camp benefits from a wealth of seasonal attractions right on its doorstep.  One in particular  promises to leave you thoroughly mesmerised.  The Festival of Light at Longleat is just 24 miles from Caalm Camp and 30 minutes by car. Each year Longleat features a different theme comprising spectacular Chinese lanterns.  The theme this year is entitled, “A Fantastic Voyage.”

Over 600,000 bulbs were planted to create this magical spectacle. Brother and sister duo, Harry, Bea and their fearless terrier, Monty, will accompany you along the way. This “Fantastic Voyage” takes you on a wonderful journey around the world then into outer space.  You will travel through Ancient Egypt, the frozen Arctic, India, Japan. You will then go on a voyage under the sea.  It doesn’t end there.  You can then visit the 50ft enchanted, talking Christmas tree.  This magical tree relates the festive story using both light and sound. Children are rendered completely spell-bound when it suddenly springs into life and starts to talk to them. To conclude, you will  be spoiled to “A Flight Before Christmas” display featuring actual flying owls.

This is a hugely popular family event.  Weekends get booked up months in advance.  We strongly advise that you pre-book to avoid disappointment. If you decide to plan a midweek family-glamping trip you can snap up tickets first.  Check out our availability in conjunction with the Longleat website to plan your very unique Festival of Light/glamping experience.  The magic will continue upon your return to Caalm Camp because our own local owls will be waiting to say goodnight, so listen out for them.
