A beachside glamping paradise awash with animals, wild and farmed, as well as chilled out humans.

Call it camping. Call it Glamping. Whatever you call it within minutes of arriving you will probably be calling Harvest Moon Holidays paradise. This seriously cool site reclines in the sleepy region of East Lothian, a wonderland of epic sandy beaches, golf courses and cute wee farm shops and cafes. It may be less than an hour from Edinburgh, but it feels more remote, a feeling accentuated by the final bumpy drive down through the fields

Park up and grab a wheelbarrow, then say goodbye to your car and the rest of the modern world. Slip past the towering pines towards the child-gasp-inducing treehouse, the bountiful play store and the characterful old boat that houses the site shop. Once you’ve settled in and fed the hens, go for a clamber up the dune to take in the views of the coast, from Bass Rock in the north down to the ruined castle of Dunbar on the promontory to the south. Dead ahead is an expanse of the North Sea with just the occasional passing cruise ship out on the horizon. 

The south-east coast of Scotland must be the least visited part of a country that’s always crawling with tourists. With the great aortic artery of the A1 slicing through the land perhaps it’s no surprise that most folk coming from the south, from the Romans to the English armies, have made a beeline for Edinburgh without bothering to stop – unless, of course, there was a Scottish army standing in their way. But there’s a host of reasons to explore the stretch of coast from the border at Berwick, past St Abbs and Dunbar. There are cliffs, castles, sandy bays and battlefields and a Domesday directory of ancient villages. 

Back on site, in a wide grassy field sheltered behind the sand dunes are the 14 encampments comprising seven luxury treehouses and safari tents. The tents and treehouses sit about half a mile from each other, so everyone has acres of space. They do have a bit of ‘Out of Africa’ romance about them. With sweeping vistas over the farmlands and epic sand dunes, these treehouses and tents boast at least 2 proper double beds, bunk bed, double sofa bed and the impossibly cute cupboard bed, ideal for little princesses or princes on a slumber party. You'll also find a woodburning stove, proper toilet and a shower better than most guests have at home.  

Parents can sit on their decks and watch their children forget all about TVs and electronic gadgets. Soon they are lost in a world awash with chickens, rabbits and geese, with horses and ponies to pet in the nearby fields. You can even ‘hire’ your own hen for the weekend, which delights wee ones as they race to check every morning whether their own breakfast has been laid. Then there is the site’s woodland to explore and, of course, the beach, and what an epic miles long beach it is in camping, glamping paradise.

Lochhouses used to be the only Scottish outpost of the Featherdown Farms empire, the ubiquitous chain of sites for pampered campers who like their creature comforts, the chain about which everyone has an opinion.
