Glamping at Loveland Farm

I used to go camping a lot when I was younger and have fond memories of the sounds, the fun and laughter of being outside but inside and the snuggling up because it was really cold. So when we were looking for somewhere for a break to get away from it all, it was fate that I spotted Loveland Farm over on Instagram.

I fell in love with the beautiful pods instantly, and knew this was the place I wanted to go, in one of my favourite parts of the world too, what more could I ask for. Here is what Loveland have to say about themselves.

"Loveland farm is the result of an ever-evolving dream which to this day continues to unfold. A campsite, but with a difference, a place where sustainability comes first, the beautfiul basics are encouraged and life is just that little bit simpler. A space that’s inspiring and completely unique, a solution to the busy modern world. 

The dream began back in 2007 when fashion designer Jeff Griffin and his family took a trip to Canada, whilst there they met a man who hung wooden pods in trees. This got Jeff thinking….If he could combine his love for the outdoors and our passion for what they do across areas other than fashion, they could create something really unique. 

Three years on Jeff put those ideas into action. Loveland Farm is a creative place where people come to relax in an environment that is fun and at one with the outdoors. They dream of building a sustainable future and have developed the campsite using green technologies, for instance the composting toilets."

I was excited and a little apprehensive about staying here, coming from a new build that was warm and well insulated, to having an outdoor kitchen, toilet and shower and living in a tent for a week.But I needn't have worried, getting back to basics has made us all slightly better people, we've all taken it turns to cook and clean, we've all wrapped up in blankets instead of putting the heating up higher and we've managed well with the composting toilet which in fact wasn't as bad as I had imagined.

With nature well and truly on our doorstep, waking up to the sound of chickens clucking and seagulls calling out it has made our week different to a normal cottage stay.

I shall be doing a more in depth write up of our stay but this is why there has been a radio silence this week on the blog but to see what we've been up too and just how amazing our time has been then pop over and follow me on Instagram or Loveland Farm as I have been doing an Instagram takeover for them.

NB: We were given a small discount in return for a blog post about our stay, however all opinions and pictures are my own.

  1. The pods look fantastic and beautifully decorated. A break from the norm makes holidays so much more exciting.
