Elmley Nature Reserve

Who needs to leave the country for a safari holiday when you have Elmley Nature Reserve waiting in Kent for you - the only National Nature Reserve in England where you can spend the night.

Accommodation

Goodnestone Park

Muddy says: Goodnestone Park is a stunning, privately owned stately home and garden near Canterbury. You can hire the whole house for that truly special function or weekend with friends. There's a reason it was a favourite of Jane Austen and the producer of Downton Abbey!

Accommodation

Bewl Water

Muddy says: Bewl is a big, beautiful reservoir offering a fantastic range of outdoor activities - from cycling to open air cinema, children's parties to cookery courses - there's fun stuff to do all year round. Oh and a decent restaurant too!

Attractions

One Warwick Park

Muddy says: The perfect nesting spot for a night out, a stone's throw from The Pantiles and more importantly the train station. You're next sleepover is sorted.

Accommodation
