The Space

Set by the incredible, historic Layer Marney Tower, just a twenty-minute drive from the golden sands of Mersea Island, this beautiful glampsite is the perfect setting for your special weekend away. Wave goodbye to the unreliable, (and strangely unwaterproofed) tents, those days are over! This stunning glampsite, complete with a hot tub, warm showers, and a pizza oven, truly befits the bride-to-be's glamorous status!

The Layer Marney Tower is an impressive Tudor Palace that's fit for a Princess. Although won't be sleeping inside waiting for a Prince (this Cinderella's already found her fella!), you'll be livin' it up in these beautiful tents. Nestled amongst the trees, these fabulous, cosy tents each come with their own private shower, hot tubs and fire pit.

Soaking in the tub with a bottle of bubbly and gathering around the fire pit by starlight is a truly special way to celebrate the bride-to-be. Take time out from looking at dresses and table plans and take in stunning views of the countryside. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of the sea from the top of the tower (the tallest Tudor tower in England!). It's well worth the climb!

The farm is a beautiful, peaceful spot: home to horses, deer and lots of birdlife. The stunning surrounding countryside is an ideal spot for wild-hens to take part in some epic outdoor activities, and the beach nearby makes for some epic watersport activities. When you've returned from your days' adventures, you can treat yourselves to some well-earned delicious stone-baked pizzas from the wood-burning stove and chill out under the stars.

There's also a charging point on site so you can show the world your new natural pad! While you're spending quality time with Mother Nature, you'll also be near the elegant seaside town, Frinton which has lots of lovely pubs and shops. This is a truly unique, exciting way to get back to nature and celebrate the bride.
