Go Wild! Britain's Best Places to Stay Alfresco
If you're looking for a romantic off-grid retreat, you've found it in this unique hideaway on the Wirral. This is your chance to live the romantic dream in this compact nordic cabin combined with its own fairytale showman's wagon and steamy wood-fired hot tub. Short breaks on the Wirral don't get better than this. Snuggle up in the handcrafted king-sized box bed in the cabin, solar lamps and log burning stove provides a romantic glow and keep the place so cosy and warm.
Nowhere could be better placed for discovering the diverse choice of culture & heritage sites, museums and galleries, cycling & walking routes, parks and gardens. Situated on the edge of your own private lake, surrounded by woodlands and open fields, you may sense you're a world away from the fast pace of life, yet you're only a 20 minute drive from Liverpool or Chester.
With no wifi or electricity on-site, guests are encouraged to switch off and spend time soaking away the evenings in the wood-fired hot tub or cooking over the open fire. Glamping toilets have moved on to a completely new level here! I don't want to spoil the surprise but just open the chest of drawers in the luxury hand-built toilet hut.
Tired of the same old kitchen at home, why not try cooking a roast chicken over the fire pit using the Kadai cooker. A well equipped outside camp kitchen beside the cabin has a gas burner, industrial-sized gas BBQ, fridge and running hot water.
Lazy Bear is just a few minutes from Burton Marsh where you can join the National Cycle route along the Wirral Way, a traffic-free, flat tarmac route, taking you along the Dee estuary, one of the UK's premier wetland birding locations. Why not hire a bike (in advance to be delivered) and explore the Wirral!
