Wave the January blues goodbye and start your year in style - get away from modern life, in the great outdoors with the family, for a half term holiday.
Luxury glamping is the perfect way to spend a family holiday. Enjoy a sense of good old-fashioned family fun – fly a kite, forage for hedgerow berries, build a campfire or toast marshmallows around the fire-pit. It’s great fun for the kids – by day, there’s plenty of space to run around or play rounders and, by night, watch the stars come out and listen for the owls – all without letting go of life’s luxuries (each of our retreats have en suite facilities, a form of heating and electricity!).
It’s not too late to book, here’s a handy list of glamping retreats that would be perfect for a February half term holiday:
