Go back in time for a romantic break in a handcrafted gypsy caravan or traditional shepherd’s hut – but still have firm mod cons to hand including breakfast delivered to your very own door? We’ll have a very large portion of that please, and quite possibly seconds.
There’s more than a touch of the Enid Blytons about spiffing Georgian farm site Glamping Thorpe – traditional, tiny but with bags of space per pitch and hidden away in a rural retreat on the Oxfordshire/Northamptonshire border (attentive owners Anna and Paul will even take you on a vintage tractor ride to the top of their highest hill to see some smashing English scenery).
Campfires are allowed, of course, for frying up dinner of an evening over a glass of wine or a ginger beer (the town of Banbury is about six miles away for picking up supplies). If you can’t be faffed cooking, stroll across the fields to local pub The Three Conies in the village of Thorpe Mandeville for wizard home-cooked food daily and an amicable atmosphere; and those on-site breakfasts we mentioned are available at a time of your choosing straight to your wagon or hut for a small extra charge (you can take your pick from chicken or duck eggs too: now that’s service).
Amenities at Glamping Thorpe are quirkily cute too, with an old horse box converted into a spacious shower room with loo and wash basin, and a separate compost loo built like a tipi – we’re pretty certain even the Famous Five never had it this good.
Open from 10 Jul to 31 Oct
