The luxury of glamping with a hot tub

Last weekend we headed off for our 2nd adventure of the summer holidays, which was glamping with a hot tub in Cheshire. Well when I say headed off, I mean we got in the car and drove for 10 minutes. Which is actually a good thing as the teen had ONE job to do…. bring his bag. Guess what he forgot?

We may have only stayed local, but our one night glamping certainly recharged our batteries. We started camping around 6 years ago, and over time our camping trips have taken a more luxurious turn. No more hushed arguments with the husband as we battle with the tent in the wind and rain (I swear I have never returned to Anglesey after THAT trip).

Glamping pods do differ in what they offer you. Some pods will just be the shell, and you have to bring your own camping beds. Others will be kitted out with sofa beds, and the one we stayed in had a double bed. Yes a proper bed. The pods slept 4 and the children slept on single fold out futon style beds. We also had a small fridge (just enough space for that all important bottle of wine), a kettle, plenty of sockets, storage space and a TV and DVD. And the best bit was on the decking….

You don’t get many glamping pods that come with your own personal hot tub, and Lady Heyes Caravan Park  has pods ALL with hot tubs. The site is on the outskirts of Frodsham in Cheshire, and there is so much to do in the area. But if you just want to get away for some relaxation, you don’t even have to leave the site.

The pods are set around a small grassy area with a picnic table you can use in the middle. Each pod does come with a small table and 2 chairs, and we also took our own camping chairs. There is also a fantastic fire pit on the decking, and we had great fun toasting marshmallows. A few seconds walk from your pod, you will find 2 shower rooms each with a toilet in.

We have been to Lady Heyes with our tent before, and even camped on the very first weekend the site opened. But this was our first time in the pods. We paid £110.00 for a Sunday night, which considering you have the hot tub is good value. There was a good mixture of families and couples staying, and the site overall had a nice relaxed feel to it.

Would we return? Yes. We had a lovely stay and it just goes to show that glamping with a hot tub in Cheshire can be lots of fun, and you don’t always have to travel too far away from home to have an adventure.

  1. I think there is so much to be said for holidays close to home, we often have families that come from Devon and travel no more than an hour but say their experience at Coombe Mill is still a compete change. Our favorite escape is also local for a quick mid week break which is the most manageable form of holiday for us. Your pod looks like my style of camping and I love the idea of the camp fire on the deck there to enjoy family evenings. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

  2. Looks like a lovely place for a quick getaway. I recently returned from a camping trip with my friend and her children. The only one who “forgot” to bring any long pants was the teenager. Unfortunately, we went a long way from home and the overnight 28 F degree temperature was not very pleasant for him.

  3. Wow, that’s my sort of camping. This would be my ideal ‘mummy night off’ place to stay with the other half. We recently went camping and stayed in a tepee it was great fun but not quite as luxurious as this!

  4. That looks lovely. My daughter would argue that it’s not really camping, but that’s the only sort of camping you would likely get me to do!

  5. Tracey, this glamping lark looks wonderful! I think I could quite happily do this (I’m not a big fan of camping!). The pods and hot tub look right up my street! Can’t believe your boy forgot his bag! It looks like you had great fun, though – and at such good value. Thanks for linking up to #MondayEscapes

  6. Hi,

    • Hi Lisa you would need to contact them direct as I have nothing to do with the site. I just blogged about our stay. Kind regards Tracey
