3. Carre d’Etoiles, France

Not a fan of curves? Then the Carré d’Etoiles, or star cubes, should go straight to the top of your wishlist. Costing from £78 a night, these cube-shaped mini-houses, made from recycled wood, are all about escapism in your natural surroundings while not missing out on the mod cons. The fully portable cubes, which come with a telescope and skygazing portholes in the ceiling, can now be found sat on 14 riverbanks and hilltops across France.

4. Free Spheres, Canada

To literally take camping to a whole new level, try setting up for the night in a Free Spirit Sphere, where you’ll be bedding down in a pod suspended between the trees of Vancouver Island’s rainforest.

Handcrafted and hanging from a web of rope, the spheres cost from £95 a night. According to the Free Spirit team, that includes experiencing how “the magical environment of the forest canopy conjures up thoughts of elves and fairies”. Nuff said

5. Gypsy wagons. England

For a taste of the nomadic lifestyle without the worry of council officers moving you on, a night in a Romany Gypsy bow top wagon should do the job. One of the best looking and located of the traditional wagons, built on an original dray with gun carriage wheels, can be found in the orchards of Tregaminion, on Cornwall’s dramatic Lizard Peninsula.

Built and used by a genuine Romany, £75-a-night Elle, as the wagon is called, still includes original features such as a wood-burning stove.
