Is it a tent? Is it a pod? Is it a lodge? It’s all of these and none of these. It’s a Luxury Cocoon in Devon, exclusive to Clawford Lakes and offering an unforgettable UK glamping holiday. Thick canvas is stretched over a steel structure which rises to a floor-to-ceiling timber framed picture-window with lake views. If glamping is camping with style, a Luxury Cocoon is glamping with style. Hidden away here at Clawford Lakes, in an unspoilt corner of Devon, with full use of our indulgent Spa and Pool, a bar and restaurant and 85 acres of lakes, woodlands and meadows, this is the glamping holiday you need to experience.
Clawford Lakes is the only place in the UK you can experience a Luxury Cocoon, and you really need to see them to believe them. Imagine a glamping pod or tent, but with lots of open-plan space, filled with natural light. Add in an open plan lounge, dining area, kitchen and sleeping area, a separate bathroom with free-standing bath, and beds for up to 5 of your nearest and dearest.
The canvas rises from head height up to 4 metres and gives way to a solid timber frame with a full-height window, framing the lake and letting in the light. Your Luxury Cocoon is furnished with all your home comforts, from kitchen utensils to plump pillows and quality bed linen.
The translucent Cocoon fabric above you suffuses the natural light during the day and radiates a warm glow at night. On a clear night you can see the stars from inside your Cocoon. In this peaceful setting beside the lake, with cars all at a safe distance, you can relax on the decking and enjoy the alfresco lifestyle.
Enjoy all the freedoms of a camping holiday with all the comforts of a lodge holiday when you stay in a Luxury Cocoon at Clawford Lakes. Wake to birdsong in the morning and step out onto your lakeside terrace for breakfast. Spend your days walking in Devon and Cornwall, taking a picnic to the beach at Bude or visiting the local attractions.
Back at Clawford Lakes, try kayaking or paddle boarding on the lake or soothe away your aches and pains in the Spa and Pool. As the sun goes down, light your very own fire pit and throw some sausages onto the barbecue for the camping lifestyle with a comfortable twist, before sinking blissfully into sleep beneath the canvas, where you can see the stars twinkling above you.
Devon is one of the most popular locations for a UK glamping holiday, and it’s no surprise. In our idyllic valley, you can enjoy the peace of the countryside, immersed in nature, while being only a short distance from some great holiday attractions. The Cornish Coast at Bude is a short drive away for a bucket and spade beach day, while Exmoor and Dartmoor are both close enough for a day’s walking. With theme parks, adventure parks, castles and gardens to visit, you can fill your days with as much excitement as you wish.
After a day’s excursions and exertions, it’s a dream to come back to the comfort and convenience of your Luxury Cocoon while still capturing some of that camping magic as you sit on the decking and watch the sun set over the lake.
