The Bubble Tent at Mercury Bay Estate

Get ready to enjoy a glamping site that has a unique one-of-a-kind sleeping tent - a partially transparent bubble that allows you to see and fall asleep under the stars and wake watching the sunrise.


Like something that's arrived from out of space, we have recently launched an on-site Glamping experience called the 'Bubble Tent'.

What is Glamping? Glamping is for those keen for an adventure, but it's camping in style and comfort with added luxuries while enjoying the outdoors in a special private location with stunning views.

No tents to erect, definitely no sleeping bags or airbeds to go flat, a chance to exit the hustle and bustle! All you need is your camera, clothes, toiletries and we recommend some warm clothes in case of a cold snap & an eye mask if you'd like to sleep-in a little.
