Glen Helen glamping and Swiss chalet restaurant
My pretty faculty buddy Stuart advised me he was beginning a glamping website some time in the past and I knew it might be nice! He very kindly allow us to keep at one of many pods final night time to strive it out (no string connected!) however I couldn’t not write a assessment may I?!
The location is described as ‘nature with out the tough’ and that’s precisely what you get.
With an influence bathe, bathroom, comfortable beds, snuggly duvets, linen and towels supplied, underfloor heating and kitchen space inside and out of doors decking with BBQ / hearth pit and seating, that is definitely not your common tenting expertise! There might be wi-fi entry within the close to future nevertheless it’s not arrange but so an ideal alternative to change off from social media (or use your 4G 😂)
We loved enjoying board video games within the night with the ladies.
Regardless of the climate or the season these pods are match for goal.
There are 6 pods there at the moment with an additional 2 within the planning. They’ve a great deal of plans on how the positioning goes to evolve however for now it’s seems to be stunning with wild flowers rising between the pods to draw butterflies.
It’s set within the gorgeous Glen Helen with an excellent play park for youths and a surprising waterfall on the finish of a stunning stroll. The DOI are at the moment resurfacing all of the footpaths and have repainted the play tools. It’s already trying nice! The youngsters will love strolling over the large bridge with the river speeding beneath. They’ll play ‘Pooh sticks’ or fake to be somewhat goat gruff crossing over the trolls bridge 😍
The newly managed Swiss chalet is a part of the advanced so we tried there for breakfast the next morning too. It was INSANELY GOOD! ( we paid for our personal breakfast)
The notoriously choosy mr Babytoddlerfoods mentioned the breakfast was one of the best he’s ever had. And the ladies who had mentioned they weren’t hungry as a result of they’d already had waffles and berries within the pod stole all his sausages!
I contacted them a few days earlier than I visited to see if there was any likelihood of a vegan choice? WOW! The perfect vegan meal I’ve had in a very long time! No standard avocado on toast right here! The chef whipped me up falafel pancakes with grilled tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms and spinach and recent rocket with a tomato and chilli jam! I can’t wait to return!
The restaurant is open within the evenings however we determined to get chips from peel with the youngsters as a substitute. The stunning @foodieguideiom has visited for night service and described it because the ‘closest meals to Michelin Star on the Isle of Man.’ I do know EXACTLY what they imply now and we solely had the brunch!! Go and take a look at their weblog put up on the restaurant here-
Would I like to recommend? YES!! it’s definitely not a tenting expertise, it’s way more luxurious than that. An ideal base for visiting peel or ramsey for days out and in case you’re into motorbikes then there’s in all probability no higher place to observe the bikes fly by then the automobile park.
I’d think about that celebrating an important day couldn’t be higher performed than by a stunning meal on the Swiss chalet after which an in a single day keep within the glamping pods.
My buddy has attended a hen social gathering staying within the pods with a buffet from the restaurant and she or he completely loved that.
There’s can also be a brand new occasion space with gorgeous views throughout the glen which might be good for a marriage venue 😍
Thanks Stuart and crew! We are going to defo be again! A winter night time within the pod can be good for snuggling up in 🙌�
