Day 37 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a visit to The Glamping Helipod and a stay in Jetstream in Lincolnshire, England.

First Impression:

I love the passion that Will and team have for converting former transport into quirky glamping experiences.

We have seen great changes to their site whilst working with them since 2018.

Do not expect luxury, or ensuite facilities, but you will enjoy the efforts they have gone to keep the authentic feel of the vehicle and convert a living space within it.

For the adventurous! And I know my children would have been in heaven in any of their creations.

The Accommodation:

Located in Friskney, with its famous coastal neighbour Skegness, this property offers a great base for exploring this lovely part of the UK.

These two properties are set alongside each other so are a great idea for 2 couples or a large family to rent together.

However they have their own BBQ, seating and picnic table areas so offer enough privacy for individuals to stay in too.

There is a shower room and kitchenette for simple cooking just a few steps from each property.

Food and Drink:

The kitchenette facilities allow you to knock up a simple meal. The Barley Mow is open for food and drinks a short drive or walk away for food and drink - from Thursday to Sunday.

As we were there early in the week we took a short drive to the The Bricklayer’s Arms in Old Leake for a tasty meal.

Jess' top tip:

A must do when here is a visit to Lincolnshire Wildlife Park a short drive away.

What started as a parrot sanctuary has become a full blown wildlife experience with many tigers (previous pets who wouldn’t have been taken in by zoos) and other animals.

We were lucky enough to get a special access to the tigers but regardless, this is well worth visiting and supporting.

Skegness is well worth a visit but you can also get off the beaten track a bit by going to South Parade and Gibraltar Point - or Anderby Creek Beach and the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB both about 40 minutes away.
