New to Host Unusual: Secret Cloud House, Trannish Island, Beacon Hill and Haddy's Hut
As the trees blossom and the early signs of summer emerge we start to imagine ourselves being able to take advantage of staying outdoors and appreciating the gorgeous green countryside that is only found at home in the UK. So here we bring you four new properties all with a Glamping edge, from opulent yurts to an island-based bothy and romantic shepherd's huts. Start planning your outdoor adventure with Host Unusual today!
One of the beauties of Secret Cloud House Holidays in Staffordshire is that each of its luxurious yurts has a different look, name, feel and style. Bilberry, for example, is a quaint and curious wood-clad structure which contrasts with Foxglove, a green canvas yurt. What these homely and romantic retreats do have in common, however, is that each comes with a wood-fired hot tub. Also unique is the Shepherd's Rest, which is an onsite massage room so you can have your own spa time without leaving the grounds!
An adventurous island dwelling and naturally unique experience, Trannish Island is set in County Fermanagh and has its own bothy providing comfortable shelter for budding intrepid explorers. Here, the beautiful positioning of the bothy in Upper Lough Erne means that water activities are never far away, from canoeing to boating and kayaking; you can follow a range of trails that will see you explore the waterways. After a fun day return to your bunkhouse (or teepee in the summer months) with your fellow explorers and enjoy the space and calm of island life in Northern Ireland.
A south-facing wildflower meadow and 360-acre grounds that include a magnificent lake, and 40-acre ancient woodland; what better setting for two upscale shepherd's huts named Bluegrass and Ryegrass than Beacon Hill Hideaways? Spa lovers will also take note at this gem too - just a short stroll away from the huts in the slippers provided in your room is access to a luxury spa, including swimming pool, gym, steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and therapy room, making it the perfect place for some serious restorative me-time!
The Peak District: a place to escape and explore the moors, dales, caverns, peaks, rivers and much more. Feel instantly connected to this natural playground with a stay in Haddy's Hut, a spacious and handcrafted shepherd's hut. You'll be made to feel right at home with the warming wood-burning stove in winter, or the atmospheric fire pit in the summer, in addition to the contemporary furnishings that make it a true home from home. Whatever time of year you visit, you'll be assured of comfort, privacy and tranquility.
