Published date: 16th November 2020 | Author: Lucy Dodsworth
With lazy days in the peaceful countryside and long nights beneath the stars, a UK glamping break makes for a relaxing honeymoon escape after all the excitement of your wedding.
You can get away from it all in with a stay in a shepherd’s hut, treehouse, safari tent or yurt, with sites located everywhere from Cornwall to the Scottish Borders.
There’s a whole host of different glamping options available. So, to help you find ‘the one’ in your search for your perfect honeymoon, here are 10 of the best glamping spots from across the UK, where romance is guaranteed.
1. Love In The Round, Cornwall
A glamping love nest surrounded by Cornish woodland and wildflower meadows, Love in the Round was tailor made for a honeymoon experience (prices from £160 per night).
This tranquil refuge was designed as a space for couples to reconnect. At the centre of the copper-roofed roundhouse is a handmade four-poster bed with silk sheets and fur throws to cuddle up by the fire.
There’s a separate private shepherd’s hut bathroom and lots of romantic extras are available, from a welcome hamper and fireside hammock to silver-service dining in the forest and couples massage sessions.
2. Coastal Cabins Glamping, North Devon
Just one and a half miles from the North Devon coast, Coastal Cabins Glamping’s pastel-painted wooden cabins are surrounded by fields and set alongside a lake.
In each of their five Couples Cabins (from £117 a night) you’ll find a king-sized bed, en-suite shower room and mini kitchenette – or you can cook up a feast in the on-site BBQ cabin.
There are plenty of local sandy beaches for those romantic sunset walks, with the North Devon Coast Path within easy reach, or you can unwind with a soak in the Wild Spa hot tub with its views towards the Atlantic.
3. The Yurt Retreat, Somerset
Tucked away on an organic farm in Somerset, the Yurt Retreat mixes roundhouses, yurts and a beautiful stilted treehouse.
Choose your perfect glamping honeymoon experience from the Nest – a circular yurt-meets-treehouse for two with a roll-top bath in its own private outdoor bathhouse – or the Birdhouse, a treehouse in the woods with a hot spa bath (from £170/£195 per night).
Both are decorated in a cool Scandi style with reclaimed wood, fully equipped kitchens and hotel-style bathrooms, and have outdoor areas romantically draped in fairy lights where you can toast marshmallows on the open fire.
4. Under The Walnut Tree, Gloucestershire
Escape to the picturesque Cotswolds with a stay at Under The Walnut Tree glamping, set in the grounds of the Painswick Lodge manor house on the edge of the village of Painswick (from £165 a night).
This quaint shepherd’s hut is off-grid but still has all the creature comforts you could need – a kitchenette, en-suite shower room and comfy cupboard bed – as well as a welcome pack of local produce which includes bacon, bread and eggs fresh from the estate’s hens.
Active honeymooners might like to hike a stretch of the Cotswold Way – or use the manor’s swimming pool and summer house in the summer. Or you can just light the woodburner, chill out and make the most of your own private oasis.
5. Ockeridge Rural Retreats, Worcestershire
Surrounded by nine acres of Worcestershire’s idyllic countryside, Ockeridge Rural Retreats has all the ingredients you need for a romantic glamping break.
Their luxurious Ashwood shepherd’s hut (from £159 per night) – just one of a selection of accommodation options on site – makes a restful break for newlywed couples, with high-spec interiors featuring oak floors, a bespoke kitchen, private deck and a log burner and underfloor heating to keep you warm on a winter’s night.
But the wow-factor feature is the freestanding roll-top copper bath, perfect to relax in with a glass of wine from the nearby Astley Vineyard.
6. The Long View, Sussex
Make yourself at home in the heart of nature at the appropriately named Long View in Suffolk, a newly built wooden glamping cabin where folding doors at the end of the bed bring the peaceful meadows of Swallowtail Hill Farm to you (from £145 a night).
This secluded cabin has a king-sized bed set up in the perfect spot to watch the sun rise, as well as a lounge/kitchen area, en suite bathroom and a woodburning stove.
Then outside you also get your own covered dining deck and fire pit, as well as a private wood-fired hot tub for two, all surrounded by eight acres of tranquil Sussex countryside.
7. By The Wye, Welsh Borders
Get away from it all at the eco-luxury By The Wye woodland glamping site near Hay-on-Wye in Wales. Sleep up among the trees in one of the five luxury safari tents in their tented camp, elevated on stilts alongside the River Wye.
The site is designed to be eco-friendly, but you don’t have to rough it with ornate beds, comfortable sofas, en-suite bathrooms and a roaring campfire on the deck where you can make the most of the bright stars of the Brecon Beacons dark sky reserve.
Their cosy Cwtch safari tent sleeps two (from £183 per night) – add on the Campfire and Cwtches package for wine and chocolates, a romantic couple’s massage and a delicious meal box.
8. Oaklands Glamping, Powys
Oaklands’ adults only glamping’s retreat in Mid-Wales is a taste of Africa without leaving the UK (from £207 a night).
This is camping with all the mod cons, including a king-sized bed with Egyptian cotton linen, a kitchen with woodburning stove and a bathroom with roll-top bath and plenty of fluffy towels.
Their two safari tents Bluebell and Foxglove – named after the flowers growing on the site – have decks with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, where you’ll find an eco-friendly wood-burning hot tub and a kadai fire pit for cooking or post-dinner snuggling.
9. Roulotte Retreat, Scottish Borders
A French gypsy wagon decorated in Himalayan style and surrounded by the countryside of the Scottish Borders, Shivanni is an unusual type of glamping honeymoon destination.
She’s one of Roulotte Retreat’s seven traditional wagons (from £105 per night), and is decorated with Indian carvings and jewel bright colours.
Inside you’ll find a comfy double bed as well as an Indian daybed to unwind on by the wood burner and a compact kitchen and bathroom, all in a secluded location alongside a stream in the corner of the meadow, where you can watch the sun set from your deck.
10. Brockloch Treehouse, Dumfries & Galloway
Among the bluebell woods at Brockloch Farm close to the south coast of Scotland, the Brockloch Treehouse is a quirky wooden pod on stilts up among the trees (from £165 a night).
Built to bring the outside in, a host of tiny windows let the sunlight stream inside, and skylights above its sunken bath and double bed are ideal for sleeping under the stars together for the true romantic glamping experience.
There’s also a small kitchen and bathroom, solar panels for electricity and a wood-burner and sheep’s wool insulation that’s designed to keep you warm all year.
