Dittisham Hideaway – Devon, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

For those who like to glamp, rather than camp, Dittisham Hideaway is the answer, with its collection of treehouses, shepherds’ lodges and an American Airstream. Just outside the village of Dittisham, a mile from the River Dart and ten minutes’ drive from Dartmouth, the back-to-nature setting lives up to its name. The only sounds at night are a gently babbling stream and the owls hooting in the trees. The four cedar-clad treehouses are ideal for families (the welcome hamper has breakfast for the first morning). New last year, the five larger-than-usual shepherds’ lodges sit in a wild flower meadow; one has a neighbouring mini children’s hut, kitted out with bunkbeds, next door. The Airstream has been beautifully restored with burnt orange leather seats and a shiny space-like silver ceiling in the sitting area. All accommodation comes with a private deck, wood-fired hot tub and BBQ , and the majority is dog-friendly too. When you’re not out exploring, hang out in the communal games barn playing chess or table football. There’s also a boules pitch, ping pong and a help-yourself vegetable garden.

From £195 for a Shepherds Lodge or the American Airstream; or from £275 for a treehouse
