Mind, Body and Soul.

At the moment we are on the run up to Christmas, where we might party a little bit too much (burning the candle at both ends), eat a little too much, drink a little too much and probably spend a little too much! Thankfully it's only once a year. Once the clock chimes midnight on December 31st and we ring in the new year, perhaps we should look at ways we can give our mind, body and soul a break? A long ...

Halloween and Fireworks

Well, the clocks have gone back and half term is now over. It's that time of year where we scare ourselves silly, and then head to an organised display to ooooh and ahhhh at the whizzes and bangs.

It has taken a lot of time (three years) and effort, put in by Robert and Iain to achieve this result. We are hoping to develop a new and unique glamping site for ... Read more

Happy Hot Tubbing

They are quiet and don't bubble, so it's like taking a bath in the surrounding nature. The following properties have hot tubs at ... Read more

The CargoPod and Future Plans

Apologies for the slightly dark picture, we finished cladding the CargoPod on a slightly grey day in mid December (2016). For those who this is the first visit to our website, I hope you'll look at our CargoPod and think what a sophisticated looking Glamping Pod it is. For those who have stayed with us before, or visited our web pages from April 2014 (when the CargoPod was born) until December 2016, they will be looking at something rather alien to them, ...
