There’s a Love Island-style glamping experience less than an hour from Manchester

In just a few weeks, the next batch of young and beautiful Love Island contestants will be moving into the villa – but you can get your own taste of the hit reality show right here in the north west.

The Secret Garden glamping experience in Lancashire has a series of pods, lodges and yurts, each one kitted out with luxury touches inspired by the ITV series.

The spaces are decorated with flowers, fairy lights and neon signs, with extra details like outdoor TVs, underfloor heating and en suite bathrooms.

Guests can gather around the fire pit – real Love Island style – lounge in hammocks or perch on swings in their own decked area.

There are even outdoor bars and al fresco kitchens, just like the real deal, except all set in 2.5 acres of woodland.

The hospitality business has just unveiled its latest accommodation, The Glade, which they say is perfect for the ‘ultimate girls night away’.


You can watch Netflix nestled between the trees or help yourself to chilled drinks aplenty from the outdoor bar area where amenities include an ice machine and huge cooking area.

Complete with a bright pink rope swing and hammock, this is glamping like you’ve never seen it before.

Each private tent has a luxe-cosy atmosphere with velvet pastel sofas, floral headboards and plants everywhere, from the ceiling to the floor, all proudly parading the pink colour scheme.
