We're not always candlelight and canvas

 If the romance of canvas isn't for you and you prefer your hotel room to have four walls, a solid door and more of a downtown vibe, read on.

The Urban Quarter is a brand new concept for us in 2017 and will sit alongside the canvas rooms at our pop-up during Glastonbury Festival. It was borne out of an idea to provide an edgier alternative for festival go-ers who wouldn't consider themselves a glamper, but would still appreciate some boutique comforts for their stay.

The Urban Quarter will be on our established site on the edge of the festival and will benefit from all the services that keep our return guests returning; great food and a well stocked bar, luxury showers and toilets and even a swimming pool and spa if the mood takes you. It's ideal for those who want a hotel room close enough to the action, but far enough for some rest and relaxation -no daily commute to the festival required.
