Travel Awards 2015 // Best glamping…

We love a bit of glamping!  This year we have been fortunate to stay in some of the very best, from safari tents to bell tents, yurts to treehouses.  Glamping is all about getting back to nature, but not giving up on comfort.

This year we collaborated with Canopy & Stars as part of their #cscollective.  I even took over their instagram feed during our road trip in France last August.  So as Canopy & Stars are officially the very best in glamping, it is only fair that I dedicate this award to them.  You guys officially rock!

So, the best (canopy & Stars) glamping places for 2015 are:

3.  Berridon Farm

We actually didn’t stay at Berridon Farm through Canopy & Stars, but they are on their books. So this is sneaking back in at number three.  Freedom!  Berridon farm has it in bags.  Gathering eggs from the coop, cooking on a stove, tree climbing and cooking pizza on the outside oven. Proper glamping in Devon.  Book through Canopy & Stars here.

2. Harptree Court – treehouse & yurt

I know I’ve mentioned this place before, but staying at the treehouse really cemented my love for glamping.  Yes I know it is possibly ‘glamping’ at it’s utmost peak, but my golly – an adults treehouse!  It really doesn’t get much better than that.  One night here, made me determined to stay again.  Just around the corner from the treehouse is the yurt. Mum and Dad in the treehouse, teens in the yurt? Book your stay through Canopy & Stars.

1. La Pomme Perdue

We fell in love with this place.  The South of France, half an hour from Biarritz for surfing and an hour from the Pyrennes for snowboarding.  This place has it all.  La Pomme Perdue has two yurts located in an apple orchard.  Both with the best camp kitchen and outside rain shower I’ve ever seen.  We spent 3 nights here, with glorious weather, ending in the most amazing thunder storm.  Pure magic.  You can book directly through Canopy & Stars.

What we loved about our stay:

  • the outside shower
  • cooking under the stars
  • kids whittling everything
  • the thunder storm
  • the hospitality, such lovely people
  • beaches within 20 minutes drive
