Much-loved kids' book provides glamping inspiration

Mole, Badger and Toad have leapt from the pages of a much-loved children’s book to provide a glamping experience at a Herefordshire holiday park.

Five-star Townsend Touring Park near Leominster is now providing fantasy breaks in three luxury dwellings, each concealed under a grass-covered hillock. 

The lodges, named after the three animal characters in The Wind in the Willows, make extensive use of locally harvested timber to create their uniquely cosy atmosphere. Sleeping between two and nine people, they provide fully equipped kitchens with up-to-the-minute appliances, shower rooms, heating, and beds all made up on arrival.

Townsend Touring Park was opened by Geoff and Su Smith as a camping and touring park in 2002. At the heart of the 12-acre landscaped grounds is a peaceful fishing lake which helps draw a wide range of bird species and other wildlife to Townsend.

Townsend provides fully serviced pitches for touring guests and also timber-built luxury pods – but the subterranean lodges are proving a big hit.

“They certainly capture people’s imagination, and appeal especially to those who want to enjoy a total escape without sacrificing any creature comforts,” Geoff said.
