Travel // Canopy & Stars, Year of Wild…


We are huge fans of Canopy & Stars, having stayed a few of their properties last year. With such a variety of incredible places to stay there is something that will float everyone’s boat.

Canopy & Stars has claimed 2016 as the Year of Wild, concocting a bucket list of wild adventures just waiting to be had at their many special places in the great outdoors. The best bit (especially for would-be boy scouts), your wild-embracing efforts won’t go unnoticed.

Canopy & Stars are asking you to take a photo of yourself mid-wildness and share on social media with #YearofWild (or send directly to Canopy & Stars) and you’ll be rewarded with a coveted Wild Badge to sew on to your favourite shirt or picnic blanket, with 12 to collect they’re set to be the travel trophy of 2016.  My two are going to love collecting these.


They are so many places to go wild, you could possibly take a safari on home turf, scale the Portuguese cliffs to reach your tipi or bathe on a hillside, just some of the suggestions to be found in Canopy & Stars Year of Wild collections. For more information visit

Personally I quite fancy these gorgeous places:

Above (top image), is the stunning Black Shed on the Isle of Skye.  Perfect for star gazing, perhaps even seeing the Northern Lights.  Not only is beautiful on the outside, inside it is architecturally designed and uber cool.

Whilst in France this Summer – would LOVE to stay at this wild place (above), the Caru Cabin, set on it’s own lake.  Perfect for nature spotting, or just hanging out in the hammock.


Closer to home is the beautiful ‘Out of the Valley‘ cabin in Devon.  Gorgeously wooden clad both inside and out, this looks like a perfect spot to relax and unwind.  With wild swimming and woodlands nearby, there is no need to leave the cabin.

Where will you go, to find your wild?
