The phrase ‘get-away-from-it-all’ is flippantly used these days, so much so that we are starting to forget what it really means...
If you get away from it all, you have a holiday in a place that is very different from where you normally live and work.
Luxury glamping is the epitome of getting away from it all, putting real meaning into the phrase, offering unique accommodation in special locations, where the great outdoors can be enjoyed without letting go of life’s luxuries. And what better time to plan such a break in the South West than outside of the main season – there is plenty to see and do, to name but a few:
1) Blow the cobwebs away on a walk.
Whether that be on an empty beach, stunning South West Coast Path or rugged moorland, this could be just what the doctor ordered. Why not take your four-legged friend along too, we have plenty of dog-friendly retreats.
2) Visit a National Trust or English Heritage location.
Much quieter and easier to explore out-of-season, there are some simply wonderful places to visit throughout the West Country, from stately homes and grand estates/parkland to historic castles.
3) Stroll around idyllic villages and pretty towns at ease.
Popular places (which all of our unique retreats have nearby), of course, get extra busy in-season – outside of then is perfect for visiting and enjoying them to the full extent without the crowds.
4) Hunker down in complete cosiness.
Cook up a scrumptious supper, fire up the wood-burner, dig out some board games and simply enjoy each other’s company without any of distractions (well, perhaps a sea view!).
5) Embrace the great outdoors in style.
Grab a glass of bubbly and jump in the hot tub, stoke up the fire-pit and toast some marshmallows or throw a blanket over you and gaze up at the stars in the night’s sky – total and utter bliss and the perfect sense of ‘getting-away-from-it-all’!
