What better way to relax and switch off from modern life.
A great thing about glamping is that, unlike its (very) distant relative camping, it can very much be enjoyed in the winter months, especially seeing as most retreats have a wood-burner and some form of additional heating too. And – what happens in the winter months – the nights get longer and darker – which, in our opinion, is the perfect opportunity for a spot of stargazing. Perhaps from a bubbling hot tub before retreating to your cosy getaway and snuggling around the wood-burner – complete and utter bliss!
If that’s not great enough alone, try this on for size – we even have some, exceptionally magical, shepherd’s huts in an even more magical village named Warleggan on Bodmin Moor (twinned with Narnia according to the sign!), both with hot tubs and aptly-named The Lion’s Den, The Enchanted Wardrobe and The Witch’s Wagon. What makes this area extra-special is that it has been designated as an ‘international dark sky place’, meaning that it has been officially recognised for its low levels of light pollution and good public access – absolutely perfect for stargazing!
Find out more about ‘dark sky places’ here. We, of course, also have lots of idyllic retreats in rural areas that too have the bonus of no light pollution and dark skies at night, such as Hayley's Hut – it’s the very nature of this type of unique accommodation!
