Read our review of Dittisham Hideaway

Think you know glamping? Prepare for a re-think, as this exciting hidden gem is waaaay more than just woodburners and wilderness. Dittisham Hideaway would please the most diva-rish of teen or indeed stiletto-wearing woman, with a range of really exciting options.

We’re talking underfloor heating, smart TV, sound systems and the like, plus wifi and the fabulous harbour town of Dartmouth just a 10-minute drive away. Plus, a range of outdoor activities are on hand from fishing and horse riding to paddle boarding and kayak hire, plus helpful concierge services when you can’t be bothered to put on a pinny, from private chefs to a de-frazzling massage.

If it’s a date night or two you’re planning, then you surely can’t get cooler than an 1950s American Airstream. We love the idea of popping this one as a surprise for your bloke, “Darling, just put on this blindfold” (no funny business, now), driving him here to open the door on a gleaming Airstream with the original 1961 Wally Byam’s Caravanners Club stickers still on the windows. Hot dang! Read the review here.

Prefer rustic to retro? From April 2022, you can get your head down in one of five brand-new Shepherds Huts, complete with a roomy 234 sq. ft. of space, a king-size double bed, and its own private terrace with an outdoor wood-fired spa bath. Should you be be unable to find a babysitter (or a kennels) one of the huts has a mini-hut attached to accommodate the kids and is Fido-friendly.

Alternatively, book the tribe into one of one of their four top-notch Treehouses, which sleep two adults and up to three kids. You’ll want for nothing here – the spec is amazing with all mod-cons, including underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty, a fully-equipped kitchen, and two – yes TWO! – en-suite bathrooms with power showers.

Outside each treehouse has its own private deck, with a hammock and sun loungers and – whoop!- a traditional wood-fired cedar hot tub. And don’t worry you won’t be disturbed while catching up on your pile of Booker prize-winners, there’s an an outdoor chess set and table football and yes, a BBQ to keep them all busy.

Thrilling, isn’t it? Book us all in yesterday! I’ll see you in the hot tub.
