Glamping with hot tubs in Essex

Check out the Essex foodie scene on a glamping holiday with a hot tub. Jamie Oliver’s stomping ground is home to many exciting restaurants and lush vineyards serving up award-winning vintages. Once your appetite is (temporarily) sated, a glamping space is the best way to enjoy the undulating countryside and stunning coast. Follow the oak trails in Epping Forest, explore picturesque Saffron Waldon and glide down the river Stour in a rowing boat. Essex is a hop, skip and a jump from the capital but a world away from the hustle and bustle.

What’s it like to stay at a glamping place with a hot tub? Glamping with a hot tub is the most memorable way to get up close and personal with the great outdoors. Our places have got everything going for them – little luxuries, access to some of the most beautiful spots in nature and, in the case of many of our Essex spaces, close proximity to some spectacular vineyards. Glamping is your chance to shake off the usual routines and live wild and free.

Sustainability and glamping At Canopy & Stars we promote responsible travel. That means working with our owners to reduce their environmental impact, limiting the number of spaces we offer in over-touristed areas, and setting ourselves the ambitious goal of becoming net zero by 2030. We also have a charitable trust that gives a percentage of our profits to help combat climate change.

Our raison d’être is to show you the wonders of the natural world while helping to protect it. The owners we partner with are passionate champions for their local communities and they pour love and care into the special glamping places they create.

What makes Essex so special? Essex has miles of coastline and huge sweeping swathes of woodland and rural countryside to explore. Visit nature reserves and stately homes, throw yourself into some paddleboarding and kayaking, and discover Roman remains in historic Colchester. If you’re partial to a tipple, support the region’s burgeoning wine scene with a tour and tasting at one of the many vineyards. If you’re savvy, you can even stay on one and wake up to the enticing view of ripening grapes.
