Logs are resourced from a sustainable source and provide a renewable source of fuel.Guests will enjoy the Wholly Woody experience of living in a wooden house and tending to three wood fuelled fires. There’s nothing more dispiriting than dragging your family half way across the country on the promise of a trip back to nature, only to find that you’ve chosen a site that is the canvas alternative to the Costa del Sol. Britchcombe Farm, Uffington, nr Faringdon, Oxfordshire (01367 820667). This tiny island, 2.4 km long and 800 m wide, is great for families as there are amazing beaches all around and no cars. You can buy cream teas with cream supplied by the farm’s Jersey cows and, with only 20 pitches, it’s never going to be too much of a bun fight. Spiers House, Cropton Forest, Pickering, North Yorkshire (01751 417591).Nestling under the White Horse, this site’s appeal is its mystical location near the Ridgeway. Run by the Forestry Commission, this is a fantastic base from which to explore the wild North York Moors National Park.It’s very basic: you use the river for washing and the local pub for the lavatory.There are brilliant circular walks and, another plus, you can light a fire. Treen Farm, St Levan, Penzance, Cornwall (01736 810273).Inspired by a desire to create miniature architecture, The Tiny Wooden House offers all the comforts, proportions and appointments of a normal two bedroom house, all within a truly tiny footprint.Guests will be amazed to find a well appointed kitchen finished with granite worktops, a fold away dinning table that seats five, a living room with wood burner and stow away sofa, seperate shower and toilet and a master bedroom with King size double bed….. The first floor features three full size single beds arranged around a landing with fold down staircase.
