A Hobbit Hole

Working with local members of the Tolkien Society, Jan Lengyel painstakingly recreated a Hobbit hole from The Lord of the Rings, buried underground and wildflowers in the woods, at West Stow Pods near Bury.

Located in the King’s Forest Estate, nature is literally at the doorstep of the south-facing underground dwelling, which is a 100% replica of the house, unmatched elsewhere on the planet (to its knowledge).

It offers everything you could need for a great vacation, including a large living and dining area, two double beds, a kitchen and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. A remarkable place to stay. weststowpods.co.uk

A Safari Lodge

Now this one is really a bit of a hidden secret. Nestled behind the Hintlesham Hall hotel and golf club lies a landscape of poetic beauty. Where an 18th-century pleasure garden once stood (once painted by Gainsborough), today stands a cluster of specially designed safari lodges, nestled between towering redwoods, cedars and pines. The silence only broken by the call of an owl or a hawk, or the curious muzzles of a deer.

Set around what used to be a swimming pool (now a lush, wild pond), Elisa and Richard Bostock’s six-person accommodations at The Lost Garden Retreat are simply magical. Each has been carefully designed and contains more than you could possibly need: two king-size beds and a bedroom with bunk beds, a hidden playroom, a lumber store, parking, a terrace with Weber barbecue and a bath. wood-fired Scandi hot tub, custom furniture, games, hot water bottles, picnic utensils. You name it.

It’s beyond glamping. Richard even says the bathrooms (with roll top and separate overhead shower) are better than what they have at home. Yoga, pilates, and massages can all be arranged on site, so you can really get away from it all. Lostgardenretreat.com

a yurt

Jane and Paul put a lot of love into their five individually designed yurts at Suffolk Yurt Holidays, with Jane saying many people want to rent the entire site to enjoy with their friends.

Shared facilities include a kitchen area (you get your own cutlery and crockery), bathrooms, a huge fireplace, and an outdoor bar with a wood-fired oven, where one evening a week you can buy an easy (and delicious) dinner. .

“And we have the most amazing playground,” adds Jane. “So that the children can go and play, but each yurt also has its own little garden for them. ”

Each yurt comes with a hammock to relax in, a barbecue and a wood stove inside. “They sleep six and they all have a different decor – we’re known to be a bit quirky,” adds Jane. “The beds are a great feature. One is made to look like a tree, another is made of doors and the other is made of glass bottles. There’s no electricity so they’re pretty basic in terms of glamping, but these beds are really comfy.

“We’re in such a great location for the heritage coast – it’s easy to get to the beach. But we find quite often that people don’t want to go elsewhere. They come for two nights and decide to stay here! vacancessuffolkyurtholidays.co.uk

A windmill

The Cockfield Windmill near Lavenham is really something. You cannot fail to miss it while walking the stretch of road to Bury. Everything about this place is brilliant and full of decadence.

The accommodation can accommodate up to four people (adults only) and comprises two bedrooms with super king-size beds, a downstairs kitchen / diner with folding doors leading out to a private garden and balcony. There’s even a telescope on the top floor so you can really watch the world go by. Thewindmillsuffolk.com
