An online campsite marketplace has revealed it will be launching a luxury caveman glamping experience in a secret location in Somerset, where couples can live like Fred and Wilma Flintstone for the weekend!

To highlight the importance of getting back to nature, an online campsite marketplace will be launching a pop-up luxury caveman glamping experience in a secret location in Somerset mid-summer next year.

The pop-up glamping site will be in a spacious cave set in a secret location in Somerset, and will cost couples £4,500 for a three-night stay, from Friday to Monday.

The cave will be kitted out with a stone and wood super-king four poster bed, with duck feather bedding, a luxury mattress and faux fur throws, a cushioned stone sofa, open wood fire and wood-fired hot tub.

The bathroom will be sectioned off outside offering a ‘loo with a view’, and fully equipped with a composting toilet and wash basin plumbed with filtered rain water.

Just outside the cave entrance there will be a gas heated waterfall shower to wash and play in.

The experience also offers a 24-hour butler service, who will be dressed in leopard caveman attire the entire weekend. Guests can request food, drink and spa services from the butler and organise travel to local amenities for no extra charge.

Guests will be required to provide a menu ‘wish list’ of food and drink they’d like to enjoy for the duration of their stay a week before they arrive. They will also have the option to ‘catch and cook’ their own meals with the help of local experts including hunters, fishermen and foragers.

This luxury caveman getaway is perfect for glampers who would like to escape the buzz and noise of modern life and get back to basics, Flintstone style, without compromising on comfort.

Martin Smith founder of said,

“The caveman experience site is top-secret, and the owners want their guests to have complete seclusion and privacy in one of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes. If it proves popular, and I’m sure it will, the site owners are considering making it part of a wider series of the same nature - who wouldn’t want to live like the Flintstone for a few nights?!” is allowing members of the public to register their interest now, however the pop-up glamping site will only be open for six mid-summer consecutive weekends and will be booked on a first-come-first-served basis.
