Last week I spent an idyllic day in the stunning surroundings at Harptree Court in Somerset with Canopy & Stars and a handful of lovely bloggers. Harptree Court wowed us with its splendour and history, and the grounds were just beautiful – wonderfully peaceful and the walled garden so full of blooms, it took your breath away. But the thing that got my heart racing was their treehouse – imagining a night there up in the trees had me totally hooked. There was even a copper bath with a view out over the treetops for goodness sake! How much more magical can you get?
Since my visit, I’m to be found most evenings trawling Canopy & Stars’ 500+ collection of ‘glamping’-style properties. Glamping isn’t quite the right word – the unusual places to stay range from shepherd’s huts to cabins to yurts – all with a healthy dose of comfort and sustainability thrown in for good measure. There’s a fun quiz you can take called What’s In Your Bag that promises to help you narrow down your options, as the choice is pretty overwhelming.
And as for my treehouse fix? Well these are some of the spots I’ve been lusting over. Just don’t you dare beat me to them..
