Article Published: Wednesday 20th June, 2012 - 12:13pm
In search of a truly unique honeymoon? Canopy & Stars have got it superbly covered. Having created the perfect escape for newly-weds needing a post-wedding pick-me-up, they're inviting you to chill out in a hot tub, cosy up in a Gypsy caravan and travel back in time to an authentic Roundhouse. Pass the confetti, put on your wellies and join them for a 10-day glamping experience, taking you on a tour of the best of the southwest!
Days 1 & 2
What better place to start your new life with your loved one than at Land's End? The Iron Age Roundhouse at Bodrifty Farm, near Penzance, is wonderfully presented for arriving newly-weds. Warm, glowing lanterns light the way to an achingly romantic handmade four-poster bed. Spend the evening relaxing by the authentic fire bowl before cuddling up under luxurious Egyptian cotton linens.
Days 3 & 4
The next stop is two nights near the gorgeous old town of Fowey. Take it easy with some modern comforts like cedar wood hot tubs and cold champagne at Orchard Yurt on Lombard Farm. With the sea as your backdrop, explore the wilds of Bodmin Moor, or hang out in the massive hammock - big enough for a happy couple!
Days 5 & 6
Trundling up the coast on day five, you'll arrive at The Geo, which echoes the clean lines of the nearby Eden Project. Rather than exotic plants, it holds a double bed and a dining room made for two. Chic, stylish and sustainable, the space is designed for decadent camping.
Days 7 & 8
Rambling Rose is perfect for true romantics everywhere. She's an original Gypsy wagon tucked away in the corner of the Delancey House gardens, where climbing roses hang heavy with scented blooms. Born, bred and restored in Penzance, she's now resting by the lovely little town of Lostwithiel where you can enjoy a pint or two in a proper Cornish pub.
Days 9 & 10
Bring an end to your new beginning in style with a final two nights at Big Sky Retreat with its big views. The space lives up to its name when you step inside and gaze through the 180 degree windows across the stunning scenery of both Dartmoor and Exmoor. Every inch of the structure is handmade and its charm reflects the rugged beauty of the countryside that surrounds you.
