From glamping in vintage shepherds’ huts to luxe houseboat stays on a private quay or a remote cliff-top cabin escape, its signature is always to offer subtle luxury that strikes the perfect balance between the magical escapism of nature, with a relaxing dose of indulgence so you can truly switch off.

While nights under canvas may only appeal in the summer months for fair-weather campers, Unique hideaways has consciously handpicked an edit of destinations that offer all-year-round appeal. Think cosy shepherds’ huts with wood-burning stoves and stylish converted cottages in Cornwall, for windswept winter walks once the hoards have left. You can browse the hideaway Collection here, or see our pick of five popular UK destinations below.

Glamping in Somerset


If you are looking for a truly Enid Blyton escape from the myriad distractions of the 21st century, this Shepherd’s Hut in Somerset feels distinctly other-worldly, yet has all the creature comforts and mod-cons you’d expect from a luxury break. Set on the edge of a spring-fed pond with a sweet wooden jetty, there are uninterrupted views over woodland; farms and hills as far as the sea; and your only neighbours are the deer, foxes, badgers and kingfishers on the ancient Hutton Estate. Expect full peace and seclusion, which you can enjoy from the hut’s own hot tub. Inside, there’s underfloor heating, a woodburner and even broadband if you need to stay connected. But why not simply switch off and discover Wells, Glastonbury and Bath, waiting on your doorstep? Book it here.

There are many cosy rentals to choose from, including a family friendly safari tent set in a meadow with plenty of space for the kids to run and play in, to a glamping holiday for two in a hideaway shepherd’s hut with glorious views. We love the Mistery 2, moored on the peaceful banks of the Riven Kennall. The houseboat sleeps four comfortably (with two bathrooms) in its showstopping interiors. Book it here.
