The prospect of full-blown international travel this summer might still be looking pretty bleak. But in case you hadn’t heard, staycations can be just as fun as jet-setting – especially when they’re organised by hip London hotel The Hoxton.
Following the success of their Camp Hox glamping pop-up in the English countryside last summer, the swanky international hotel chain has gone one bigger for 2021. This year, Camp Hox takes in the UK, USA and Europe, and it involves… campervans!
Love the idea of a road trip but can’t be bothered with all the effort it entails? Then this could be the perfect staycay for you. Aiming to combine the fun and adventure of the open road with the sheer indulgence of a hotel stay, Camp Hox 2021 provides guests with their very own campervan and a thoughtfully curated four-day itinerary of tried and tested experiences and pre-booked stops at campsites along one of four carefully designed routes in the UK, Europe and the US. Each trip culminates in a stay at the local Hoxton hotel to cushion those post-trip blues.
Decked out with all the essentials you’d hope to find in a posh hotel room (like swanky radios, toiletries, coffee, linen and towels), the VW T6 and Mercedes Sprinter campervans are also stocked with a portable barbecue for dinners, bikes for off-road adventures, camping chairs for picnic stops, snacks for the road, and a well-stocked fridge with free beers and wines – plus soft drinks for the designated driver. Sounds like enough to get you through the four-day trip.
There are four international routes to choose from between May and August 2021, including a route across south-east England taking in the highlights of Sussex and the ‘Kent Riviera’ and a California coast option encompassing Paso Robles and Santa Barbara, plus routes in France and the Netherlands.
Booking for all four road trips opens on Tuesday 4 May, and after last year’s sell-out, we’d recommend booking quickly. Stack up your ultimate road-trip playlist: it’s just you, the complimentary toiletries and the open road, baby!
