Surrounded by long, beautiful beaches, and picturesque farmlands, Harvest Moon Holidays is an idyllic outdoors getaway in the heart of nature. They offer ‘Glamping’. Never heard of it? I hadn’t either! It is glamorous camping and is fantastic!
We travelled to Scotland from Cape Town to attend my best friend’s wedding at Harvest Moon Holidays, and decided to stay on after the wedding for a romantic week of glamping! Situated just outside the small fishing town of North Berwick in Scotland, Harvest Moon is a must-see!
The tents are exquisite, making you feel like you are camping, yet you still have access to ‘necessities’ like hot water and an en-suite bathroom! Dozens of candles are provided for your stay, and the beach house décor makes you never want to leave! The Honeymoon tent is especially stunning, with a private patio overlooking the beach.
With no electricity; there is no room for TV’s, laptops, cell phones, iPods, or mp3 players. The sounds of nature and crackling of the fire gives you the space and peace to refocus your thoughts and quieten your mind, making you feel rejuvenated. Couples or families come together around the stove to heat up the kettle for tea in the mornings, hot chocolate at night or to warm the oven for cooking. Meal-time becomes an interval for people to spend time together, to connect and enjoy each other’s company.
There are plenty of nearby activities to keep you busy during the day. Activities on the farm include a small farmyard for the children, never-ending beaches and bike trails. Nearby activities include horse riding, fishing, wake boarding, a family park, Seabird centre, Tantallon Castle, Golf & Country Club and more!
There is a cute little boat used for the honesty farm shop near the tents where you are able to purchase items or food you may have forgotten to bring. You are also invited to make use of the electricity at the Farm House to charge phones or cameras. Michelle and her wonderful team have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay more enjoyable.
Staying at Harvest Moon forces you to slow down; it is the perfect remedy for a fast-paced lifestyle which leaves you feeling drained.
