top UK family holidays...

for the ultimate 'posh' camping experience, where you have a mattress, toilet and the most amazing tent with a woodburner try, feather down farms or the new country house hideout

Adventurers, why not try a vw camper van? None are finer than the Snail Trail fleet of ladies in delicious colours, with interiors to match. I would love to hire the entire fleet and take off on our own little rally!

Little indians will love staying in a tipi at Cornish Tipi Holidays, set around the most magnificent lake, where you while away hours in a boat catching a trout for tea, to be cooked on your real campfire, this will be a holiday that will be talked about for years to come!

Real fires are also allowed at Cloud Farm campsite, in Exmoor, where camping is in the most beautiful riverside meadows. Pony trekking and a tea shop that sells the biggest range of homemade cakes are simply 'the icing on the cake!'

Under the Thatch takes properties, that are often derelict, restores them in an environmentally friendly way and then rents them out at affordable prices, thus ensuring they are rented throughout the year, not just in summer, supporting the local economy. Each is unique, but nothing beats the Aberporth Express a railway carriage over looking the sea!

surf dudes will love this Cornish beach chalet, near one of the loveliest beaches with surf lessons run from a nearby cafe. I would secretly like to live here!

...and when you have had enough of the family! pack the children off to grandma's and book out this shack on it's very own private beach!


  1. Oh my gosh - that beach hut is divine! You have me dreaming of summer holidays now...

  4. I saw this place and thought you'd love it:
    There is a guy on flickr called b-nik who has some great photos of the area.

    I can't wait to get the bell tent out. We were supposed to go at Easter but have had to put in on hold till May, I'm itching to get out there again. We hope to plan a trip to Shell Island at the end of the summer, it looks stunning.
