Glamping in Scotland!

Surrounded by long, beautiful beaches, and picturesque farmlands, Harvest Moon 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 while offering treats 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.  It allows you to completely escape from the city, while still providing little luxuries for a comfortable stay. 

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 allow you the space 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 come 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 wonderful little honesty farm shop near the tents where you are able to purchase necessities. You are also invited to make use of the electricity at the Farm House to charge phones or cameras. And yes, perhaps even a DVD player or laptop for when the kids get too much! 😉 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.
