Love Island-inspired glamping within easy reach of Liverpool, Warrington and Wigan with all the luxuries you could need.

When dad-of-two, Derry Green, found himself stuck at home during the coronavirus lockdown of 2020, he decided to spruce up his garden. And Derry doesn't do things by halves. What started out as a bit of decking at the side of his house, ended up as a super-luxe glamping getaway with a private hot tub, sauna, and fire pit all under a canopy of festoon lighting. It was supposed to be somewhere to hang out with his kids but, after friends and family showed interest, he decided to try letting it out. It wasn’t long before ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ started racking up on social media and it began being hailed as Merseyside’s answer to the villa in ITV's hit show Love Island. Soon it was even featuring in national newspapers – “Dad transforms ‘scrubland’ garden into Love Island replica”, read one.

Thankfully, this place lives up to the hype. While The Hideout is essentially a luxury glamping pod; it’s appeal is ramped up significantly by the outdoor space. The pod and all of its facilities are in a fully-fenced and decked secret garden. The combination of self-contained accommodation, superstar style and private spa facilities was just right for 2020 and will continue to wow those who want secluded luxury in the north west.

You may have gathered by now that Derry is not a man to do things half-heartedly and, as a result, The Hideout is now just one of the accommodation options on offer. The rest are a little further from the house, spread across his four acres of rural and wooded land. Each is hand-built and unique but has the same sense of style and seclusion; a private outdoor space with its own hot tub, sauna and fire pit. There’s The Lodge, a timber cabin on the edge of the woodland with views over fields, and The Retreat, a yurt, tucked among trees with a free-standing bath.

Most people who visit are here to relax and don’t venture far during stays. As such, all you really need to know about the local area is that there are shops and a good pub within a ten-minute drive. Everything is designed to make chilling out easy: gas barbecues, Smart TVs and the all important high-speed wifi that makes sharing images of this photogenic place a little too tempting to ignore; a not so secret garden after all and, due to its popularity, one to book well in advance.
