Try Something New - 5 Unique Staycation Accommodation Options!

We are all about trying something new and 2022 is the year to do something different! The Best of British holiday parks have three unique aspects to them; they are all family or independently owned, they all achieve the highest gradings from the AA or the relevant Tourist Board and they are all unique. Every single park is different. So, whether you're looking for camping, touring, glamping or lodge holidays, we have you covered.

Let's look at 5 unique staycation holiday accommodation options!

1. Clippesby Hall, Norfolk

First stop, Great Yarmouth! This picture perfect Norfolk park has some unique woodland pine lodges nestled within their Norfolk Broads National Park location. Tucked away along their own woodland track with private parking, these distinctive detached lodges benefit from the best of both worlds - part of Clippesby Hall’s family holiday park with access to all of the facilities and activities on offer, while at the same time combining a sense of separation enabling visitors to relax amid the peaceful Broadland scenery.

Each lodge has its own luxurious hot tub and is set in its own woodland glade with views over the surrounding farmland and open countryside. A wide variety of birdlife visits the surrounding trees, with deer and rabbits also regular visitors.

Inside, all lodges have a recently had newly fitted bathrooms, the kitchens all have a great range of appliances including an electric oven and hob, large fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, microwave oven and washing machine; all the equipment you need for a family holiday.

There is a double bedroom and one twin bedroom downstairs, each with ample storage space including walk-in wardrobes, as well as one twin bedroom on the upstairs mezzanine level, with its loft-type steps and open plan style overlooking the living area.

With level and ramped access to each lodge, and with the entire ground floor on a single level, the pine lodges are suitable for those with restricted mobility, with one lodge having a shower room instead of a bathroom.

If you're looking for a Norfolk holiday and you love the Norfolk Broads, Clippesby's pine lodges may be the place to visit in 2022!

2. Townsend Touring Park, Herefordshire

Here's something completely different and unique! We're going across the country now to Herefordshire, the rolling landscape of Pembridge to be precise. At Townsend Touring Park you'll find some incredible 'earth sheltered lodges' (and yes, we think they look like hobbit houses too!). This is glamping, with a touch of fantasy. Set within 12 acres, the earth lodges nestle beautifully into the landscape. In fact, you hardly notice they are there from a distance!

If you choose to stay in Mole Manor, for example, it sleeps 2 adults and up to 3 children. There is a kitchen area and shower room for your comfort and convenience. Badgers Court and Toad Hall complete the trio and can sleep between 2 and 9 people.

We highly recommend the earth sheltered lodges if you're looking for something truly unusual and an experience, especially if you are holidaying with children.

3. Concierge Camping, West Sussex

Safari holidays might not be on your mind right now, but how about staying in a safari lodge in England instead? Chichester to be precise. Concierge Camping do glamping on a big scale and they are renowned for their amazing offering of five star luxury under canvas. Each lodge is luxuriously furnished with a fully fitted kitchen and range cooker, dishwasher and fridge freezer.

There's a TV, underfloor heating throughout, en suite facilities, high speed free wi-fi, a spacious lounge/diner and a private terrace which overlooks a beautiful stream. Luxury bed linen, towels and toiletries are included as part of your stay.

So, safari lodges in West Sussex are a glamping option to consider if you like your home comforts and a touch of luxury!

4. Highlands End, Dorset

Not only is Highlands End perfectly positioned on the clifftop of the Jurassic coastline, but they have the most picturesque camping pods to stay in too. The pods are modern, cosy and compact, with enough room to sleep 2 adults and 2 children. There is a small kitchenette area, with fridge, toaster, kettle and hob, plus cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment.

There is a built-in wardrobe, blinds for privacy, a fold-down table with stools, usb and plug sockets, lighting, a heater and lockable doors going out onto a private gated decking area with seating, a table and a small covered area with a storage box. Camping pods are a great way to feel like you're camping, but they allow you to experience the great outdoors and be close to nature, albeit with a few home comforts.

5. Old Oaks, Glastonbury

The Old Oaks in Glastonbury is an adult only holiday park, so if you're looking for a tranquil break, this could be the place for you. The park itself is idyllic and beautifully landscaped. The shepherd huts are hand built and finished to an extremely high standard. The unique structures are compact, cosy and come fully equipped with just about everything you'll need for a perfect self catering stay.

There's also a hot tub available with one of the huts, so be sure to book that one if you fancy some self care in the stunning Somerset countryside!
