The Pop-Up Hotel (TPUH) is ready to breathe new life into holidaying in the UK for 2021.

Regardless of whether holidays abroad are going to be possible, the opportunity to immerse yourself in a stunning location and soak up the local atmosphere will be a reality with The Pop-Up Hotel. Founder, Mark Sorrill, explains: “By next spring I imagine everyone will be desperate to break away from the daily routine and to press the ‘refresh’ button – and this is just what the hotel can provide.”

For almost a decade the transient hotel has blended romance and luxury with the thrill of camping and a ‘leave no trace’ commitment.

An exclusive collection of canvas glamping rooms and quirky cabins provide comfortable, stylish accommodation – think full size beds with crisp, cotton bed linen, wood deck flooring, toiletries and fluffy towels.  Combine this with the eclectically furnished pop-up bar and restaurant which draws inspiration from seasonal and local foods, along with services expected from a boutique hotel: it’s perfect escapism for anyone dreaming of new experiences and connecting with a different landscape – all within the UK.

To allay any COVID fears, the flexibility of the hotel’s spacious layout, plus an experienced team who are used to tailoring the design for different environments, means that government guidelines can be adhered to without it impinging on the guests enjoyment. Additional exclusive services, such as ‘tent service’ where meals can be delivered to the room, can also be utilised.


There are two destinations currently planned for 2021:


May –June 2021

Orchards and Somerset, the home of British cider: it’s a match made in heaven.

TPUH guests will be able to say in a local, traditional orchard during the early summer, with up to 60 rooms in six different options, including a romantic Railway Carriage for two people.  Each will be nestled within wild meadow grass and rare apple breed trees, and a short stroll from the pop-up bar and restaurant.






There is plenty to enjoy close to the site including the magnificent gardens and woodlands at The Newt in Castle Cary, the Hauser & Wirth art gallery in Bruton, the mystical Glastonbury Tor and town centre and the medieval city of Wells with its glorious cathedral and Bishops Palace. A concierge service will be able to provide bookings to the best local spots.

Music is in the heart of this destination. TPUH is arranging exclusive, intimate music sets by well-known artists such as Gabrielle Aplin, as well as up-and-coming musicians for guests to enjoy.

If music is the heart, food is the soul, so there will also be ‘evenings with’ banqueting sessions hosted by an exciting selection of chefs.

“Both the music and hospitality industries have been hit so hard over the last year,” explains Mark. “It seemed the perfect opportunity to support them in some way, as well as providing our guests with a uniquely memorable stay at the hotel. We’re currently finalising our special guests so advise checking regularly to keep updated.”

Prices: Standard break: Monday to Thursday night inclusive; Friday to Sunday night inclusive

Prices per break range from £375 for two people in a Classic Tent to £1,099 for six people in the exclusive Raj Tenthouse Suite. Prices are room only.


16 July- 5 September 2021


TUPH has been invited to stay at the historic private Cadland Estate on the South Coast in Hampshire, providing a stunning sea-view glamping site with private beach, watersports and a beach cabana.

The hotel will be situated in the meadows directly above the beach, in an area of outstanding natural beauty and natural preservation. Up to 50 rooms will be spread over the spacious natural and idyllic site, along with the bar and restaurant where the hotel’s chef will be utilising local ingredients from New Forest suppliers and Cadland Estate’s own Walled Kitchen Gardens.

Just a saunter to the beach, the room options also include two sustainably built, sleek Solent view Beach Huts (pictured), each providing elegant ensuite accommodation for up to five people – perfect for families. This dreamy site is where memories are made.

“It’s a breath-taking position for the hotel,” says Mark. “And there is so much synergy between the sustainable nature of the hotel and the conservation focus of the estate. It’s an ideal partnership.”

Making the most of the unique beachside location, the hotel has teamed up with local providers to offer guests an exciting range of water activities including kayaking, sailing lessons and the hugely popular paddle boarding.





“It’s hard to believe it’s just 1 ½ hours from London,” concludes Mark. “It’s like stepping into another world where you can feel stress just slipping away.”

Prices: Standard break: Monday to Thursday night inclusive; Friday to Sunday night inclusive

Prices per break range from £499 for two people in a Classic Tent to £1,499 for six people in the exclusive Raj Tenthouse Suite.  The Beach Huts are available for £1,199 for up to five people. Prices are room only.
