The sun is out, the sea is warming up, and the beaches are looking inviting, which can only mean one thing – summer is here and for Harvest Moon, East Lothian’s premier glamping destination, its peak season is in full swing.
Nestled between the sand dunes and woodlands behind Tyninghame beach, Harvest Moon occupies arguably the best coastal location in East Lothian and offers unique glamping stays in custom-made treehouses and spacious safari tents as well as weddings for couples who are looking for a special celebration they won’t find elsewhere.
Alex Mitchell, who has been running Harvest Moon for over ten years, talks of the huge rise in the popularity of glamping during that time; “People have always loved the idea of getting away from it all and camping out under the stars in the great outdoors, but now they’re also looking for the creature comforts of a warm stove and a hot shower! Glamping offers the best of both worlds and can be enjoyed just as much during spring and autumn as in the warmer summer months. All our treehouses and safari tents are equipped with wood-burning stoves and en-suite bathrooms, offering plenty of space and breath-taking views of the sea and countryside. For those who enjoy more traditional accommodation we also have our newly completed Harvest Moon cottage.” said Alex.
There is an honesty farm shop, BBQ and campfire facilities, as well as a Kids Corner with chickens and fresh eggs, alpacas, bunnies, lambs and pygmy goats. “Some of our guests prefer to stay put on on-site and enjoy family time with beach walks, rock pooling, sand dune sledging, sea swimming and cooking fresh local produce on our BBQs. Or if they are here for a bit longer, they love exploring the abundance of great attractions in the local area.” Alex added.
Get married at Harvest Moon
At Harvest Moon there are two beautiful wedding settings to choose from – on the beach or amongst the pine trees in the woodland – making it a sought-after wedding venue for couples looking to create their own special occasion. With an on-site marquee for post-ceremony celebrations, as well as stunning honeymoon suites in both the treehouse and safari tent sites, they can enjoy a weekend-long gathering with family and friends in their own private surroundings.
