Carry on Glamping

“I’m getting back to nature!” you cry. “I LOVE having no running water, I RELISH itchy scratchy bumpy and I LAUGH IN THE FACE of spiders in my knickers. Off you go, with your car bursting with rickety tent paraphernalia poking you in the ribs, tins of beans, wellies, loo roll and a feeling in the pit of your stomach that you may never come home alive.

Stop right there Poppy Lovers, for I (Poppy) have discovered the wonders of luxury camping, or ‘Glamping‘ as the kids on the street (or in the field) are calling it and I am sharing it with you.

Sawday’s Canopy and Stars are creators and providers of true, super duper luxury camping havens all over the UK and France (oui). All gorgeous, all unique and all undoubtably quirky. I’m talking yurts, treehouses, gramophones, shepherd’s huts, telescopes, gypsy caravans… and recording studios. Yip. 

The amazing living space in the top pic is called ‘The Geo’ – an eco pod in Cornwall. A smooth white bubble of style on the edge of rugged Bodmin Moor. It has a private kitchen (!) and bathroom, (BATHROOM!), sits above the vicarage and looks out over the hills. Every morning a scrumptious breakfast hamper (free of charge) is left out for you, with an evening menu for you to peruse should you not feel like cooking. So, you can just curl up on the giant beanbag on your sunny terrace and properly relax. I can hear you packing your bags already. (Include your walking boots – the scenery is stunning).

Family friendly, honeymoony friendly and grab-yer-besties-and-go friendly, they really do have something for everyone. Canopy and Stars treasure the simple things in life and the opportunity to slow down; they believe you can live (and work) in a sustainable, responsible way without having to compromise on fun, (whoop!) excitement, (whoop whoop!) and luxury. Hoorah!

They also have a bit of a thing for pigs, but that’s a whole other story
