Why stick to the usual boring hotel, B&B or cottage, when you could be enjoying a holiday in an igloo, beehive or treehouse?
Check out some of the funkiest new accommodation on Pitchup for an Instagrammable holiday that will be the envy of the social media world.
Pretend you’re a bumblebee
Yes, that’s right, at Honey Pod Farm in Worcestershire, accommodation includes the option to stay in a pod which resembles a bee hive! It’ll surely be a hit with kids of all ages and can sleep up to six people. The pods all feature glass ceilings so glampers can enjoy a spot of stargazing at night. The fun does not end with the accommodation, the site is home to a family of pigs and even has its own 17th-century inn serving up delicious gastro pub grub all washed down with an ever-changing choice of guest ales! What could be better? Three-night breaks this summer cost from £360.
Is that an Igloo in Devon?!
That will be the question on everyone’s lips when they see images of a holiday from Hideaway Camping in Devon. Iglulu Camping Pod is a super quirky unit which has been designed to reflect the style of an arctic igloo. The pod sleeps four and has heating, solar lighting and cosy beds and beanbags for sleeping and relaxing. There is a communal cabin for cooking, showering and washing, plus a toilet block. A two-night stay this summer costs from £150.
Get hipster in a retro touring caravan
With all things retro and vintage never been more on trend, why not get in on the action with a stay in a retro touring caravan at Camping Loeil Dans Le Retro in France. Stay in a choice of fully-furnished units, each sleeping three people and costing from £48 per night. Shower blocks are available on site as is a restaurant and bar, plus a games area. The vintage theme continues throughout the site with summer festivals and events including a vintage fashion festival, street entertainment and silent movie nights.
Treehouse right over a vineyard
The Brits are a nation of wine lovers and what better way to indulge this passion than staying in a treehouse which sits directly above a French vineyard on the outskirts of Saint Emilion? Les Cabanes des Benauges offers a choice of five-berth treehouses, beautifully designed and each with a private balcony overlooking the vines and surrounding countryside. Treehouses feature toilets, cooking areas and beds. Shower facilities are available within the main site. A two night stay this summer costs from £210.
Posh glamping with a freestanding bathtub at the end of the bed!
For those with friends who picture a glamping holiday to be all about sitting in a tiny pod and still having to trudge across a field for the loo, will be amazed at the sight of Ockeridge Rural Retreats near Worcester. Ashwood shepherd’s hut is one of the units on the site and has been designed to the owners’ exact specifications. Amongst the features of the hut are a huge copper bathtub, king size bed, heating, fully equipped kitchen and freeview TV. Stay this summer for £300 for two nights. Hut sleeps two.
