New glamping locations, from Essex to Perthshire, that are perfect for a late summer getaway
If the thought of escaping to a private island this summer sounds appealing, head to the far east, well, Essex to be more precise. Osea is a tranquil island in the Blackwater estuary reached via an ancient causeway at low tide or river taxi at high tide. There’s a handful of lovely holiday cottages on the island, and now glamping has been added to the mix this summer. Yurts are comfortably furnished with double or twin beds, linens and towels, with access to private shower cabins. Meals are served in a communal area with lounge, bar and proper loos. There are two outdoor pools and free bikes for exploring.
• £180 per person per night, based on two adults sharing a yurt. Minimum two-night stay. Extra beds can be provided for younger children. Older children can share a bell tent for £90pp per night, oseaisland.co.uk
