It is easy to get swept away in the busyness of everyday life and forget to have a little time for yourself, but it is important to plan in some quality time for you and your loved one to spend together on a regular basis. If you’re looking for something a little more alternative than a traditional hotel but with just as much luxury, then take a look at a few of our favourite glamping abodes that are simply perfect for an alternative romantic weekend away. The best part is that as they are all set within a beautifully natural setting, with plenty to see and do, as well as offering cosy facilities, so that you can kick back and enjoy a short break for two!
You could stay in…
Staying in a treehouse is a thing of children’s dreams, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t suitable for adults too! Live your own fairytale for a week or weekend as you gaze over the forested area and sink into life off the grid. Our Bensfield Treehouse is a magnificent option, comfortably sleeping two with a fitted kitchen and en-suite bathroom for your pleasure. Take a stroll in the 44 acres of private, unspoilt woodlands in the day, and gaze at the twinkling stars at night from the decked patio area with a bottle of bubbles for the ultimate romantic retreat on your treehouse holidays.
P.S. The Cedar Lodge Treehouse even has it’s very own eco-friendly hot tub!
For something a little more majestic and unique, wagons are a perfect alternative. Two of the wagons we have on offer are a blast from the past, take your pick from a 1920s showman’s wagon, or a 1950s glam caravan and you will be transported back in time. The interior and exterior of these may be a little eccentric, but that is all part of the charm; this will be an experience that neither of you will be forgetting in a hurry! The interiors are perfectly cosy, and the exteriors offer a plethora of beautiful views that will have you out on a romantic exploration of the local area for hours.
A shepherd’s hut
Shepherd’s huts are a simple, but wonderful alternative option to stay in for a romantic weekend away. Situated within the beauty of nature, these little huts don’t intrude in the environment, blending beautifully into the private surroundings. Take a trip to one of the shepherd’s huts we have on offer (some of which even have their very own private eco-friendly hot tub for an extra special treat), and you will never want to leave. With all the home comforts you could wish for in an open-plan space, you’ll feel at home in no time!
Lottie the Lorry
It doesn’t get much better than this; take the chance to ditch a hotel room in exchange for a few nights in the back of a lorry; it is far more romantic than it sounds, trust us! The interiors are quaint and intimate, perfect for a getaway for two. Having travelled to exotic destinations such as Budapest and Morocco, Lottie now sits within the beautiful Welsh countryside, perfectly situated for catching a stunning sunset on the patio! She has all you’ll need for a spot of quality time as you sleep under the stars true luxury travellers style!
Perfect for those of the eco-conscious among us, eco-pods are a fantastic glamping option that makes the environment happy as well as the visitors. Don’t be fooled into thinking that the ‘eco-friendly’ label means that it is missing a few features, as these pods really do have all you’ll need for the weekend, including hot showers, wardrobes and luxury beds! Whether you’re enjoying a BBQ outside or reading a book in the sun, you’ll fall in love with the cute eco-pods and their lush green surroundings!
What are you waiting for? Book a romantic weekend away for two that will fill you with excitement and have you enjoying each other’s company to the full in the midst of the natural environment.
