Daisy Decker, East Riding, Yorkshire
Families can hop aboard Daisy Decker for a glamping experience with a difference in East Riding, Yorkshire.
The green double-decker bus at Hollym Park Glamping is all kitted out for family stays of up to five people with two cosy bedrooms, a galley kitchen, shower room and heating for the chillier nights.
For family days out, the seaside resort of Withernsea is close by.
Golden Oak Cabin, Sherwood Forest, Nottingham
Storybook stays don’t come much better than a Robin Hood hideaway in Sherwood Forest.
Families can embrace the legend and lead your Merry Men through the woods for a stay at one of Forest Holiday’s Golden Oak Cabins.
Spacious living rooms feature wood burning stoves, and each has its own outdoor hot tub.
Pyatts Nest Treehouse, Tenby, South Wales
A glamping site with a difference, Florence Springs in South Wales is an adventure playground for kids young and old.
Its imaginative Pyatts Nest Treehouse is a fantastic setting for a family holiday with a master bedroom and separate sleeping area for the kids, a wood burner to keep everyone snug and warm, and a covered kitchen area.
Kids will love the slide down from the balcony to the ground and the large swing, while adults are treated to an outdoor wood-fired hot tub.
Blackberry Wood, East Sussex
If you go down to the woods today in Sussex you’re in for a wonderful surprise, as Blackberry Wood has places to stay right out of a children’s storybook.
Fairytale cottages Higgledy and Piggledy have a wonderful wooden design.
But that’s not all, the camp site also includes quirky converted vehicles such as a London Bus, a helicopter and Angus the Fire Engine, which have been kitted out for a fantastic family stay.
Hobbit house, Bodiam, East Sussex
Lord of the Rings fans will be delighted with this luxury hobbit hole stay in the pretty Rother Valley, a short walk from Bodiam Castle and close to a vineyard.
Seemingly moulded from the earth, the cottage has rounded windows, a round door, vaulted ceilings, a cosy woodburner and a countryside setting that will have guests feeling like they really have arrived in the Shire.
There’s room for up to four guests, who get their own smart TV, hot tub, patio and garden furniture, plus use of the owner’s tennis court.
Railway Retreats, Northiam, East Sussex
For train-obsessed kids, Railway Retreats offers a first-class break that they’ll remember forever.
Accommodation is inside a classic converted train carriage at Northiam Steam Railway Station on the picturesque Kent and East Sussex railway line, with steam trains whistling past the front door.
The carriage is surprisingly spacious with room to sleep up to 6 people in its two double bedrooms, kids bunk room and comfortable living areas.
There’s an open plan lounge and diner with a TV, a family bathroom and a full kitchen, with a welcome hamper provided on arrival.
