We sayMany glamping and camping sites talk a good green game, but few put it into practice so impressively as Gimme Shelter. And it’s all done with a smile too. Rat race escapees Chris and Yvonne Barley may have been dubbed hippies a decade ago, but today they are nothing short of visionaries. Long before it was trendy they were using only rainwater, avoiding electricity wherever possible, and recycling. And we don’t just mean recycling bottles and cans – we mean old caravans into caravan/come shacks, tennis court Astroturf into walkways and old bits and bobs from local dockyards to into wood-burning stoves. Chris also carves bespoke wooden outdoor furniture for what is a thoroughly unique and inspirationally low-fi site. The options are to camp in at ‘Strawberry Fields’ or ‘Rising Sun’, take their quietly grand log cabin or that converted caravan.
