This week we were lucky enough to take a glamping trip to Lee Wick Farm http://www.leewickfarm.co.uk/. Having never visited there or been glamping at all before we really were not sure if it was going to be our cup of tea, but excitement was in the air all the same. Lee Wick Farm is in a lovely little village called St Osyth in Essex (near Clacton On Sea), driving through it you can see quaint little local shops, lovely houses, pubs etc. your classic english village – I spotted a lovely little tea room and kicked myself when we got home and forgot to visit. We stayed in MegaPod 1, the lovely wooden pods which consist of a double bed, sofa bed, dining area, small kitchen unit, bathroom, solar-powered shower shed and outside seating area with BBQ and log burner. We were so pleased with the accommodation when we arrived. It was the perfect size for two, we were actually quite shocked at how big they were inside. They were clean it was on a lovely site, an overall winner for me!
We live in a small house with no garden so for us we lack time outside, so number one on the list of things to was go for a lovely long walk around the fields and walking tracks around Lee Wick Farm. We got some great floral photo’s, spotted lots of baby rabbits and chased a bee around trying to take a still life.
As I said above with the lack of garden comes a longing for BBQ’s (mainly for Matt – who was in his element this trip). Mega man time. We ate very good for the whole duration of the trip here are some snaps of our cholesterol raising BBQ meals. I may need to start dieting now!
No trip near a seaside resort can have arcades missed of the agenda, man for those few hours at the arcades winning Clacton pier tickets was all that mattered in the world. Only to have the cheap thrills come to an end hand in your tickets and all you can afford was sweets, I would have at least appreciated a cuddly meerkat 😉
What a great break we had, something very different for us to do but I highly recommend glamping to anyone who isn’t too keen on the generic camping like ourselves, too much tent and dirt for me! Lee Wick Farm is a great site too, perfectly located we would for sure stay again.
Has anyone else been glamping, did you enjoy it? Where do you recommend we visit next?
Have a great night all.
