Top 5 most unusual places to camp

With Muddy Puddles residency at The Big Feastival this Bank Holiday Weekend, we bring you our Top 5 choices of unusual places to camp around the UK!

1) Wild-de-Go, Bude, Cornwall Talk about different! This land boat boasts is situated in a secret garden and sits close by to a beautiful, duck-filled pond. Ideal for a family getaway in Autumn thanks to a toasty wood burner, under bed heater and extra electric heaters and staying 'surprisingly cool' in the summer, this campsite is suited to a stay at any time of the year.  The Wild-de-go has gone through a complete makeover without losing any of it's natural rustic charm, leaving original portholes, exposed beams and ribs of the boat all around you. Fitted out with an insulated grass roof for relaxing family time outdoors.  If you’re looking for choppier waters and a more adventurous family adventure trip, you’re in the right place! Bude is 5 miles away with its sandy beaches, and surfing at Widemouth Bay down the road. The Tamar Lakes are even closer and offer good walking and cycling outings, with the North Cornwall coast stretches out for miles of exploring. Coming with a kitchen, huge double bed and a on deck wood fire hot-tub beside the boat, you are never short of space to be with the family after a day exploring the local area.

2) Lost Meadow Tree Tent, Bodmin Cornwall It's circular, it's futuristic, it’s sustainable, it’s suspended from strong cables 3 metres above the ground and it's one of our top family camping trip destinations. The lightweight structure was ingeniously built both to minimise impact on the trees and to withstand unimaginable weights, being kind to the trees as well as keeping you safe!  With a ceiling window to watch the stars at night, a double-glazed window to give stunning views through the trees and down over the river.  With over 20 acres to roam and explore, streams to stomp in and lakes full of kingfishers to admire, the vast woodland will provide amazing days of family fun and great family memories!

3) Seithfed Nef  Seithfed Nef is Welsh for 'a seventh heaven' which frankly could not be a better name for this wonderful family glamping experience. Offering large canvas bell tents located in 16 acres of farmland, guaranteeing plenty of opportunity for family exploration. The site is located in an area designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in north west Wales. With cuckoo's song or the sound of a trickling stream, this is an ideal area for family time spent well together. The land is surrounded by stunning scenery with off the beaten track footpaths, beaches, lakes and rivers abound.  The site is located in secluded countryside but only 2 miles from the nearest beach. This is glamping as it should be. Here you're in your surrounded by your own wild flower meadow and wild hedges. A large country-esque bedroom provides an unusual and comfy sleep. A quirky indoor wood burner also provides a new way for most families to cook their meals after a day of adventure. 

 During the day there are loads of family activities to take part in on the beautiful and unique estate. The site also offers a cafe bar with beer garden, shops and teepee toilets.  Being only 1.5 mile from the A1 road, Bedale 6 miles away, and the historic market city of Ripon not far from the site, the camping area and it's surroundings will make for some great family outings.
