Muddy Says: Is this a total find, or what?! A gorgeously secluded selection of luxury lodges, suites and apartments just outside Totnes, close to the coastline of Torbay. With a rather spanky spa and gym on-site, plus a relaxed restaurant, with views, this one basically has R-E-L-A-X written all over it in permanent marker.
Muddy says: 6 safari tents decadently decked out, panoramic countryside views whilst being minutes from the Jurassic Coast, farmland fun for kids. With every single detail taken care of, can (posh) camping be any more of a doddle?
Muddy says: Well hello Cliff House, you South Devon beauty! Need a view of the sea from your family-friendly holiday rental? Try panoramic views on three sides in this one.
Muddy says: is this the coolest spot to glamp it up in Devon? With a lodge, a treehouse, luxury bell tents and a cute ecopod all in residence hidden amidst the woodland, well, quite possibly, yes.
Muddy says: A super-pretty playground with a timeless charm, this family-friendly hotel will have you yearning for a staycation (not least because of *that* spa).
Muddy says: we're totally on board with the idea of a little creative indulgence, but wouldn't it be lovely if there were a place that took you out of the everyday and into a pretty, peaceful and relaxing space to focus on learning something new? Oh, hello The Old Kennels, the pleasure is all ours.
Muddy says: After a stay at this pretty damn idyllic spot near the North Devon coast, you'll never, ever want to camp without a Chesterfield sofa again. This is every glamper's dream, basically a boutique hotel under canvas.
Muddy Says: In a city where bland chain hotels dominate, what a relief to discover a small, indie, boutique hotel that should be on everyone's 'must-stay' list. Exeter's best-kept secret.
Muddy says: Ahhh, finally a travel company offering so much more than a bog standard package holiday! If it's the year for experiential travel, or a really immersive cultural experience and Malawi is top of your list of must-visit places, then you, my friend, can stop the search now.
