Forest Retreat & Luxury Camping UK
Welcome to the Sleepy Explorer, a luxury woodland retreat and camping experience in the Midlands, UK. If you’re looking for an escape to nature with beautiful UK scenery and surrounded by beautiful woodland, but still want a taste of luxury, our glamping pods are perfect for your next staycation.
Unique Pod Holidays in The Midlands
We offer glamping holidays in one of three glamping pods we have on-site.
We offer unique staycation or holiday experiences for people who want to really reconnect with UK nature.
We’ve put together three different holidays to suit everyone’s individual camping needs.
All three of the glamping pods come with a complimentary hamper with butter, milk, bread, eggs, some biscuits and fruit, and a few marshmallows for toasting on your open fire in the evening.
We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. — Native American proverb
The sleepy explorer's home consists of three unique stays, the globe, the Refuge and Basecamp. Nestled in a two-acre mixed woodland, crowned by four inspiring American redwoods, it's the perfect space to disconnect, unwind, and tell stories around the campfire.
The area is back-to-basics with a hint of rustic luxury. Double beds with down duvets and warm showers take the edge off "roughing it", but we are also trying to be as eco-friendly as possible so you'll have your own composting loo and three different bins so we can hot compost, recycle and dispose of your rubbish accordingly.
The Globe is our unique, immersive forest retreat experience as you’ll relax above the ground, in our secluded glamping pod that sits among the trees. Whether you’re an individual, couple, or group of up to three people, you’ll experience complete serenity and have access to secluded woodland and camping facilities.
*not suitable for wheelchair users and involves a walk through the woods and climbing stairs.
The Refuge is a comfortable option for those who would rather not spend the night at ground level. The Refuge provides more of a camping experience, with a traditional atmosphere made of luxury. With a double mattress, a small fire bowl and gas burner for the evening, you’ll get a real glamping experience. The Refuge is a luxury staycation in the UK, designed with couples in mind.
Basecamp is our larger, more traditional glamping pod (LandPod) for bigger groups like small families or groups of friends. The asecamp glamping experience is made for people who are looking for a real forest retreat, surrounded by woodland and ending their nights with marshmallows over the firepit.
