Lit up tent-shaped cabins at night


Discover Your Next Night Under The Stars...

If the thought of sleeping under the stars appeals, but you’re not ready to commit to roughing it in a tent, then glamping is a great go-between. You get a taste of the wild with a few more home comforts thrown in, so it’s a win-win. To inspire your next trip, we’ve rounded up some of the best off-grid glamping and cabin stays across the UK.



Fforest, Cardigan

Set on a 200-acre farm nestled by the river Teifi Gorge and the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve, yet just a 10-minute drive from the seaside town of Cardigan, FForest Farm is perfect if you’re looking for chilled vibes that take you away from the stresses of modern life. As well as cabins and bell tents with pared-back scandi-inspired interiors, you’ll discover luxurious camping domes featuring Japanese style cast-concrete sunken tubs, bespoke furnishings, woodburning stoves and outdoor kitchens. 


Beyond the farm, you can enjoy the stunning beaches of Cardigan Bay and get the adrenaline pumping with an array of watersports from sea kayaking to coasteering and even surfing.

Living Room Treehouse, Snowdonia

These hobbit-like treehouses are sure to fire up your inner child with their quirky spiral staircases, wobbly bridges and rope swings. Nestled within a hidden valley in the heart of the Welsh mountains, just south of Snowdonia, the treehouses have been built in harmony with the environment.


A hygge-seeker's paradise, you can expect candlelit evenings cosying up by the wood-burning stove as there’s no electricity on site. You do have to work for your comforts though, because although wood is provided, you’ve got to chop it. 


On arrival, you’ll be guided on a short hike to your home away from home, but then it’s over to you as you’re left to explore and unwind at your own pace.

Sky Den, Northumberland

For an authentic camping under the stars experience, you can’t beat the Sky Den, which featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.


Part treehouse, part art installation, this unique cabin is located in the heart of Northumberland’s Dark Sky gold tier park. Sitting 20m above the burbling Cranecleugh, it’s a feat of engineering with the roof of the triangular-shaped sleeping space opening up at the press of a button to give you interrupted views of the sky above.


The cabin sleeps up to four and features quirky space-saving solutions, including stool parts integrated into the wall that you have to piece together before you can take a seat. Once you’ve managed to piece together your furniture, you’ll find plenty to explore right from the moment you step outside, from mountain biking and watersports to fishing and forest walks.


Campwell, Bath

If you’re seeking a simple off-grid kind of getaway, then Campwell Woods near Bath is a great place to head. A handcrafted eco-village of log cabins, yurts and cob roundhouses complete with composting loos, woodburning stoves and outdoor fire pits, you can get back to nature while still being within easy reach of a city. 


The whole site sleeps up to 22, making it perfect for group getaways and offers a range of activities the whole gang can get involved with, from wood carving and wild swimming to foraging and yoga.


Campwell’s sister site Campwell Farm, located on a fifth-generation working farm, is built on the same ethos but has nine bell tents sleeping 36.


Both sites encourage visitors to live more harmoniously with nature during their stay and are aiming to become carbon neutral.

Kudhva, Cornwall

Hailing itself a digital detox, Kudhva sits within a 45-acre abandoned quarry that overlooks the Cornish sea. Aiming to work holistically with nature, the accommodation is completely off-grid, with all essential amenities located within the reception building. 


Kudhva means hideout in Cornish, and the four available Kudhva structures  offer just that. Sleeping two in the mezzanine bed above a compact sofa below, the Kudhva deliver a temporary place to rest up whether you’ve had an action-packed day taking in Cornwall’s surf or have been relaxing with an on-site yoga lesson.


For families or groups, the Danish cabin offers a similar feel to the Kudhva but sleeps six. Its innovative design blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living to deliver a unique and unforgettable chance to reconnect with nature.

Hide away or venture out: the choice is yours at Albion Nights. A lovingly hand-built cabin tucked away in the heart of Norfolk and just a short drive from the Norfolk Broads and the Norfolk coastline, it's the perfect getaway for water lovers. 


However, if staying put is more your thing, you won’t be disappointed. The simple-looking exterior, made from reclaimed, recycled and reused materials, belies the cosy interior and bespoke touches, including a star-gazing skylight above the bed and an outdoor tub. And, the cabin is situated in six acres of wildflower meadows and looks out onto an idyllic pond that is home to an array of wildlife, so there’s plenty to see on-site without having to move a muscle.
