Find your HYGGE with a break with Canopy & Stars. Canopy & Stars is a collection of unique, creative places to stay in the outdoors giving you a genuine experience of a life more wild. They have inspected every single one to make sure only the most special spaces make it into their collection. Their collections couldn’t be more HYGGE inspired. You won’t know which to book first.
Connecting with nature is simple. Just trail a hand in the water, feel the grass between your toes or sit for a moment and listen to the birds. It’s also important, because there’s nothing more powerful than that connection for inspiring people to love the outdoors and protect the environment.
That’s why it’s Canopy & Stars sixth way to find your wild. They have some great places for you to reconnect and also help you give back just by going outdoors.
They plant a tree for every booking and have now launched tree planting donations. When you book, you’ll have the option of giving £2 to reforestation charity Treesisters. Every penny goes towards planting trees and fighting climate change, and contributes to their mission of planting 1,000,000 trees by 2025.
Candles play a big part in a HYGGE home. All these I have found are from handmade Etsy. Which one is your favourite?
