Vintage caravanning, retro caravanning, even chic caravanning! Call it what you like, the caravans from a bygone era were both beautifully designed and hugely practical. We've lovingly refurbished an original caravan design locally back in '60's so our guests can have a break and relax in a 'vintage' wonderland. Click here to visit the 'vintage' caravan glamping page

Officially licensed by VW this is simply the coolest of our glamping accommodation. The VW Camper Tent is a full size replica and sleeps two adults (or four young children) in two separate sleeping pods. Perfect for the fashion conscious or just VW fans.

The ultimate and very last word in glamping. Airstreams are luxury accommodation that provides the perfect synthesis of form and function. The ultimate in lavish style and decadence, we have a range of airstreams available for hire on our glamping site from 2 to 5 berth.
Handmade in Germany these funky little silver teardrop ooze chic charm and sophistication. With a large double bed there's plenty of space to snuggle up a bed time and the tardis like proportions allow you seat 5 adults comfortably round the table when in the seating position. Light and easy to tow you can even take this little glamping dream off to a location of your choice if you wish!
What's Glamping? Glamping, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary is "a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping" or as The Telegraph put it, - "a form of recreational outdoor living in luxury bell tents, yurts or shepherd's huts rather than standard shelters." The word glamping comes from blending glamorous and camping. In effect Glamping is posh camping or 'luxury' camping.
