Take to the wilds in style with these romantic glamping sites around the UK, lovingly handpicked by CoolPlaces.co.uk
The location couldn't be more rural, or the yurts and bell tent on this small site better appointed. Yet at Ivy Grange Farm you're just a few miles from the lovely Suffolk Coast and right on a national cycle path - and the welcome is as warm as can be. And what could be more romantic than joining one of their star-gazing evenings?
Two yurts and three bell tents, tucked away on the quiet western shore of Lake Windermere. The views at Long Valley Yurts are pure heaven, and you can paddle across the lake or just chill out among beautifully chosen rugs and furniture that conjure a vision of old Marrakesh.
Perhaps the most bizarre option here, but in some ways by far the most romantic, in effect suspended high in a tree and rocked to sleep by the gentle breeze. Red Kite Tree Tent might not be for everyone, but it's utterly unique.
If your ultimate romantic fantasy is a gypsy caravan then Roulotte Retreat is for you, an 'adults-only' site in the Scottish Borders that boasts seven 'roulottes' - traditional French wooden caravans - decked out in a beautiful, cosy style. Just enough creature comforts (en-suite toilet and shower) but not too many (no TV) leaving you free to properly enjoy yourselves without distractions.
Two bell tents decked out with everything you could possible need - indeed you don't need to pack more than you would for a hotel at this comfy retreat, tucked away in a wildflower meadow in the Camel Valley. There are even bone-china tea sets and tea-light candelabra at Soul Camping (pictured above), and all the facilities you would expect from a good hotel.
The lodges here at Tom's Eco Lodge are big, and ideal for couples who want to spread out and enjoy a bit of privacy while enjoying the benefits of this fabulous location, along with en-suite bathrooms, a living room and wood-burning stove. Old-fashioned pleasures abound - hammocks, board games, barbecues, and of course a great nearby beach.
