With the post-Christmas blues beginning to kick in and dark winter mornings causing nationwide misery, many may be in need of some serious pampering.

The comfortable two-bedroom caravans feature one twin and one double bedroom with an open living space furnished to a good standard. The fully-fitted kitchen features a sink, oven and hob. The caravans are fully serviced with mains drainage, water and electricity.

The site is home to some superb facilities including a decent-sized gym, which also houses a sauna and a steam room for visitors to steam away their cares. There’s also a well-provisioned shop and Wi-Fi available. Meanwhile, mini guests can swing their way around the adventure playground or play some video games in the games room. The surrounding areas are fantastic for wildlife lovers, who can spot everything from Quantock ponies to red deer.

Liphook, Hampshire:  Pitchup.com has availability on its wooden camping pods at The Old Thorns Manor Hotel this season with prices starting from £75.00 per night for two adults sharing (£37.50pppn).

Escape the post-Christmas blues and sneak off to this luxury site. Featuring everything from a first-class spa, to an Atrium champagne and cocktail bar – it’s the perfect place to de-stress. The Old Thorns Manor Hotel is an elegant property in the heart of Hampshire, with luxury wooden pods positioned in its well-maintained grounds.

Glampers can cosy up in a double pod, equipped with a comfortable double bed, a small sofa and amenities such as a heater, tea/coffee-making facilities and a flat screen TV with Freeview. If this isn’t enough, guests also have exclusive use of the dedicated glamping shower and toilet facility – within close proximity to the pods.

Relaxation is the name of the game here with all pod guests having access to the hotel’s fantastic range of facilities including Elevation Health and Fitness which features a pool, hot tub, sauna, spa and first-class beauty treatments. It’s the perfect place for a January pamper weekend.  And for those who need to be surrounded by life’s everyday extras there is a Starbucks on site and a sports bar with Sky Sports.  The champagne bar is a great place to chill with plush leather sofas offering a cosy spot from which to catch a classic movie which are shown regularly.  Old Thorns is home to a championship golf course set over 400 acres and is also situated in the South Downs National Park, making it an ideal venue for those lo walkers and countryside lovers.
