A Touch of Glamping

We tried our hand at glamping this magical weekend. This tipi in the grounds of the beautiful Barn on the Coast just outside Bridport, Dorset, was ours for one night. It felt so good to be out in the countryside, surrounded by nothing but rolling hills and with the sea just over the brow of the hill. Stay too long in the city and you forget how clearly you can see the stars when there are no street lights around. Returning to our little tipi in darkness, we were guided by the light from the moon and lanterns made of glass jars (my late-night attempt to download a torch app failed despite the wi-fi connection). We drifted to sleep to the hooting sounds of barn owls, slept surprisingly comfortably, and awoke to a cooling early morning mist, before spending the day on the beach in the glorious sunshine.
