One of my favourite places in Scotland is, without a doubt, North Berwick, an adorable seaside town on the east coast. It’s a small town that feels incredibly peaceful and is blessed with absolutely stunning beaches that don’t really look like they belong in Scotland.

Posted on by Emma Gray in Travel Tales | Leave a comment

The perfect holiday means something different to everyone, some people love a holiday relaxing on a glorious sandy beach while others prefer holidays climbing up mountains or backpacking across faraway lands. Others enjoy adventures closer to home such as an exciting caravan trip in the UK where they can explore the country in the comfort of their own caravan. Gala Bingo are now offering caravan-themed giveaways in May to cater for all the caravan and camping enthusiasts in the UK. The prizes are valued in excess of £50k and include a caravan giveaway + 2 years park fees and another 10 holiday giveaways to Park Resorts. Despite the fact that camping and caravanning has a somewhat prejudice link to being a cheap holiday, there is a far more luxurious side to it. Below are some of the best, most luxurious and most expensive holiday park resorts around the world.

Privately-Owned Island in Alaska

If you want to really get away from it all (and spend a fortune in the process) then jet off to this privately-owned island in not-always-sunny Alaska. There are tons of activities here including hiking and kayaking, making this destination ideal for the more outgoing and adventurous types. You will stay in a comfortable 20 ft.-diameter yurt which includes its own propane cabin heater, stove and on-demand/hot water heater. Electricity is provided by solar power and each cabin has an ocean view.

Forest Treehouses in South Carolina

Go back to your childhood with these forest treehouses. It is the largest private Wildlife Refuge on the Edisto River but you will have to access it by canoe as this is the only way to get there. The area is astounding, hosting stunning views of a 160 acre refuge. Somewhat like a fairy-tale, this choice is perfect for those with kids as they will really feel like they have dived into a fantasy world.
