Staycations in the UK

Discovering the rest of the world
Nacpan Beach - El Nido, The Philippines
The ultimate beach-side glamping getaway, Nacpan Beach Glamping is situated in El Nido, Palawan and is our go-to for a tropical luxury camping experience. Imagine waking up in your Lotus Belle to the sound of the waves, stepping outside the tent and looking up at the bright blue skies and palm trees and sinking your toes into the sand… Sold? We thought so!
Woollybutts and Howling Wolf - Byron, Australia
Another one of our top glampsites for Summer is Woollybutts and Howling Wolf in the Byron hills, Australia. It’s further than your average holiday flight but so worth the travel if you have a few weeks or even a month to spare. (Perhaps a working holiday is an option?) We want to watch the amazing sunsets around the firepit, stargaze and soak up all that nature has to offer at this luxury camping site down under.
Summit Big Bend - Texas, USA
A totally different glamping experience in the desert of Big Bend National Park! Summit Big Bend is a stargazer’s paradise as there is no light pollution disrupting the skies, meaning that you get to see the Milky Way in all its glory! Set on 1,000 acres of raw desert land, it’s an adventure you’ll never forget. It’s the perfect getaway for a team building retreat, romantic weekend getaway for two, a family reunion or creating your own epic adventure. It’s also guarantees to have people wanting to see your holiday pics.
