Gemini Camp’s worth booking whatever your horoscope says: this park’s in a private six-acre nature reserve, so you can have the wildlife-rich Essex surroundings and fresh air all to yourself, perhaps as an extension of a hol before or after a flight out of London Stansted Airport a five-minute drive away...?
The off-grid stays at this hideaway in a private nature reserve are in a luxury bell tent with a king-size bed; a field shelter with a woodburner, cooking and washing facilities – including an eco toilet and shower – are also to hand with views out across the greenery-filled former horse paddock whichever way you turn.
Settled in comfortably to watch planes swooping across the skies overhead then realised you’ve left something behind at home? The village of Elsenham with its local shop and pub is a 15-minute drive (or half an hour walk away on a car-free trail) for your essentials and the nine-hole course and gym at Golf World Stansted under a 10-minute walk also has a bar in the clubhouse serving food and drink if it’s sustenance you’re after.
Other villages to visit in this rural area include Stansted Mountfitchet (15 minutes away), home to historical hotspots like Mountfitchet Castle, a reconstructed Norman settlement and a toy museum, along with pretty Thaxted (also 15 minutes) and Finchingfield (25 minutes).
Back in Elsenham, a mainline railway station means you can also hit up the big cities thanks to direct services to Cambridge (half an hour) and London (55 minutes).
