Fairytale Glamping is the brainchild of friendly owners Chris and Libby, who dreamed of creating a beautiful place in which whole families could relax, disconnect, and make magical memories in nature.
Then, on one wonderful day, their dream came true!
Set within rural Lincolnshire, The Castle is a true labour of love: exquisitely designed and crafted by Chris and Libby themselves (with a little extra help from both of their dads, too).
Imaginatively created around a former park-home chassis, the ‘castle’ features turrets, majestic arched windows and a roped drawbridge, for a regal first impression that’s bound to impress.
And since a castle is a royal residence, you can expect full self-contained facilities – there’ll be no queuing in the dark for communal loos here! There’s a well-equipped gas-powered kitchen with hobs and a small fridge, and a sleek bathroom with an invigorating shower.
Savour home-cooked feasts at the banqueting table, or gather outside to enjoy a sizzling barbecue supper instead – an ideal way to capture that beautiful sunset.
When it’s time to turn in, two elegant bedrooms will be waiting: one with a curtained kingsize bed, and one featuring two sets of cosy bunkbeds… plus a wooden ‘throne’ and colourful stained-glass windows!Keep reading
