2. Tara Hill Estate
So, I’m not sure if the Tara Hill Estate really falls into the ‘glamping’ category, but it’s a quirky stay, which is why we’ve included it. The pods here are surrounded by 10 acres of land and you can choose between two types of accommodation – the Wild Room and the Forest Lodge.
The former is a uniquely designed outdoor living experience with a massive window replacing one of the walls to let you immerse completely in nature. Each room comes with its own private pathway, secluded outdoor area, a fully equipped kitchen and a private outdoor heating shower!
The forest lounge used to serve as a working barn and inside you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, a mezzanine bedroom and a private bathroom with an air to water heat pump for sustainable heating.
