beach huts

Our beach huts can be found at Beach Cove Coastal Retreat in Bude, Devon. They are the perfect escape if you are looking for a romantic couples get away. Each beach hut sleeps two people and offers incredible views out to the cove. These quirky pastel-painted beach huts offer everything you’d need for a self-catering break with a cosy living room with a sofa and TV as well as a small kitchen with all the basics you’d need. Outside there is a private seating area with a hot tub that you can enjoy relaxing in during your stay.

Another unique stay that is perfect for couples are our treehouses. You will find these both in the Peak District at our Rivendale Lodge Retreat and on the Isle of Wight at our Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat. Each treehouse is in a secluded area of the resort nestled amongst the trees. With a decking wrapping around the treehouse with a sunken private hot tub, you can enjoy relaxing and spending quality time together in the luxury of a treehouse. Inside the treehouses you will find a small kitchen with all the basics as well as a comfy bed and spacious bathroom.

hotel pods

Sometimes a hotel break is all you need, but if you are wanting something like a hotel but a little bit more unique then you’ll love our hotel pods. These can be found at The Springs Resort & Golf Club in Oxfordshire and are suitable for 2 people. The hotel pod provides you with everything you’d expect from an ordinary hotel room with the added extra of a private terrace with outdoor seating. That way you can enjoy a hotel stay whilst taking in the stunning views of the resort.
