We are a few weeks into the new year, and I don’t know about you, but I am already dreaming of where I might escape to over the next 12 months. With hopes of no more Covid-related restrictions to scupper our plans, it feels good to be able to book something in advance without too much worry.

I’m still slightly apprehensive about travelling abroad, plus I am trying to minimise my air travel these days to reduce my carbon footprint, so UK getaways are my current go-to. And why not?! Our little island is a haven of beauty with many hidden gems to explore.

Posy – near Ilminster, Somerset

This cosy little hut with a bright and airy interior sleeps two, and includes a small but perfectly formed shower room within the hut. Cooking outside here is a must, with its cleverly designed outdoor kitchen as well as a fire pit barbecue. Once you’ve eaten alfresco, you can enjoy the outdoor wood-fired bath – a glass of bubbles in hand, while you gaze up at the stars – Bliss!

Mistery 2 – River Kennall, Cornwall

Is there anything more fun than staying on a houseboat?! This one is nestled in a beautiful, private setting, boasting a stunning outside space complete with an impressive fire pit, wooden benches and even an outdoor sound system. Inside, the boat is spacious, sleeping four in the two bedrooms, as well as two bathrooms and a kitchen. A really unusual and beautiful space for something just a little bit different.

Rosie’s Hut, near Totnes, Devon

Getting back to nature is easy with a stay at Rosie’s Hut. This sweet little shepherd’s hut is set in an idyllic spot, amongst woodland and farmland, where you can spend your time spying the local flora and fauna. When the sun goes down, you can enjoy a view of the night’s sky from the hot tub, too. Plus, after a cosy night’s sleep in the king size bed, you will wake up to a framed view of the fields and sky outside – switch off your phone and soak it up!

Hayley’s Hut – near Bideford, Devon

This cuter than cute shepherds hut is set on a working dairy farm and has its very own fishing lake and a hot tub!
