We're more than ready for a change of scene, and Classic Glamping has the solution, with sea views and a touch of camping luxury.

Holidays have seemed a distant fantasy for many of us (a quick scroll through our iphotos reminding us of what was) but Covid restrictions are soon to be relaxed and this means that travel within the UK will be possible (fingers and toes crossed, touch wood etc etc).

Like us, you’re probably more than happy for a change of scene, and Classic Glamping may just have the solution. Memories of waking up to a clammy tent wall stuck to your face, or nights spent tossing and turning while simultaneously shivering yourself to sleep? No thank you. And don’t get us started on queuing for the loos, bleary eyed, armed with your toothbrush and loo roll. As fun as this may be for many, if you’re feeling like treating yourself to a little more luxury yet maintaining the ‘I am at one with nature’ vibe, then picture choosing between a shepherd’s hut, pod or cabin, each having its own en suite facilities and electricity on tap.

Classic Glamping handpick the best glamping sites in the South West and are our go-to when we fancy a unique family holiday, one that the kids will remember forever. If you’re after somewhere romantic for just the two of you, they also have a selection of yurts, tents, cabins or shepherd’s huts complete with hot tubs. Whatever you’re after, just envisage a much-needed period of screen-free, quality time with your loved ones.

Imagine soothing the soul with a wonderful sea view with a side of luxury glamping. We’ve rounded up a few of our favourites from the site to inspire and whet your appetite.

Fortune, Bembridge

From £21 Per Person Per Night (Sleeps 8)

How do you like the sound of a houseboat on the Isle of Wight? We can think of nothing more appealing right now than relaxing on the deck of a luxury houseboat, glass in hand, taking in the view of Bembridge Harbour and breathing in the fresh sea air.

Gull Rock Cabin, Near Mullion

From £28 Per Person Per Night (Sleeps 2)

This beautiful cabin is the ultimate getaway and is set within an area of outstanding natural beauty on cliffs facing the magnificent Mount’s Bay. If ornithology is your thing, then prepare to pull out the binoculars and feast yours eyes upon great black-backed gulls, guillemots, shags and cormorants, to name a few. You may even get lucky and spot a peregrine falcon.

Mr Blue Sky, Praa Sands

From £24 Per Person Per Night (Sleeps 2)

Oh how we do love the idea of a king-size bed, all the mod-cons your heart could possibly desire and a walk-in wet room. But what gets us the most is the prospect of waking up to panoramic sea views over Praa Sands village and out to the Atlantic beyond.

All of Classic Glamping’s staff have first hand experience of all their glamping sites and are there to help you find your perfect holiday. What are you waiting for?
