Because getting away from it all doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Big Sky Retreat Devon

The holidays are over for another year *sobs* and (if you’re anything like us) you’re back in the office dreaming about your next holiday. But if your wallet is feeling a bit thin after all those Christmas frivolities, why not consider vacationing a little closer to home?

Taking a Staycation – vacationing in the UK rather than going further afield – will save you time and money and won’t have a big impact on the planet either! And with so many great destinations in the UK, you’ll never want to get on a plane again…

This week, we’re off to Devon to stay in a yurt with some pretty incredible views…

Big Sky Retreat is a remote, hand-crafted wooden yurt with an breathtaking view at the Hookhill Plantation in Devon.

Owners Scott and Alison’s get a sh*t about the planet too as the yurt is entirely constructed from recycled and natural materials (woohoo). All of the wooden furniture including the beautiful enclosed king sized bed were handcrafted by Scott too! There are still home comforts though as the yurt is kitted out with modern touches such as the hot shower and gar hobs.

This lovely yurt escape sits between Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks, with awe-inspiring 180 degree views across rolling countryside and the pretty pond. There’s even an outdoor swing for guests in the summer.

Hookhill Plantation is great for adventures too – wander through the stunning ornamental grass gardens, explore the ancient bluebell woods or have a picnic by one of the pretty ponds.

And as the icing on the cake, here’s a load of photos for you to look at. Don’t all book at once, now…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
