The Woodfarm Barges
Just an hour away from the hustle and bustle of old London town you’ll find these beautiful and quirky holiday barges moored up, described as floating cottages, these boats are 100 years old and as glorious as ever, even better you can stay in them. If you should choose to visit these wonderful barges, you’ll be experiencing a peaceful and relaxed pace of life, whilst here you can explore the delightful coffee shops, restaurants and country villages of Suffolk. Or if you’d prefer your days to be filled with a little more adventure you can always take part on a spot of windsurfing or kayaking nearby too, there’s something for everyone here.
Have you ever dreamed of living like a bumble bee in a fabulous beehive only to know that such a thing could only exist in your wildest dreams? Well wake up friend, your dreams have finally come true! That’s right, just at the edge of Dartmoor, hidden away in a wooded garden of a great Victorian house you can find Humble Bee, a cabin with three tiers shaped just like a beehive. If this isn’t quirky, I don’t know what is, folks. This place is perfect for anyone who is young at heart and will capture the excitement of your youthful days spent building dens in the woods. It’s also a great place to go as a couple, even offering a thermal outdoor hot tub for two.
Burrow & Bagend Hobbit Howfs
For any fan of the infamous works of Tolkien I’m sure I need say no more. These houses in Scotland are modelled on the iconic homes of the Hobbits themselves and they are just the cosiest cottages you have ever seen. You’ll be surrounded by the stunning Scottish countryside and will feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere, in fact, even the car par park is 200 meters away. Worry not though you will be lent a wheelbarrow to take your luggage to the house with you. Nearby sites include the marvellous medieval Dunblane Cathedral, plenty of whisky distillers for you to tour and you’ll only be a relatively short distance from Lock Lomond and its stunning scenery. If all of that doesn’t take your fancy well you should simply enjoy the fact that you’re staying in a Hobbit house, they are all you could dream of and more.
Though the name Apple Camping might have you thinking of tents below apple trees this place is worlds apart from that idea. If instead of homely and cosy you’re looking for something out of this world then you will not be disappointed, here as well as being able to stay in tipi’s and yurts you’ll be able to spend the night in both a 70’s jet plane and even a sci-fi inspired UFO. Not only will the usual comforts of any guest house be available but you’ll also have access to video games here too, which is perfectly fitting. Though don’t spend all your time in doors, there’s plenty of beautiful sites in the great outdoors at Pembrokeshire too.
