If you haven’t quite booked your flights to Ibiza yet this year, don’t worry, because Ibiza is coming to you. For the first time ever, the world-famous rock ‘n’ roll hotel Pikes Ibiza have just announced an exciting new summer collaboration with beautiful Marston Park in Somerset, just two hours by train from London.
With holidays abroad still facing restrictions and festivals being cancelled, this is the perfect experiential staycation weekend to deep-dive into some serious fun and frolics at one of the UK’s most exquisite lakeside locations.
Marston Park is a playground for creativity with grown up food and drink, set around a Victorian lake between Frome and Bruton in Somerset. Each weekend promises to offer the ultimate escapism with a sprinkling of Ibiza magic, delicious food, gorgeous music, luxury glamping, and a glimpse into the magical world of Pikes, all framed by an ancient English countryside landscape. Over the three days there will be an eclectic programme of performances and holistic and creative workshops, wellbeing sessions, cultural talks, activities as well as artists and DJs.
For the foodies, much loved London chef Richard Turner (ex Hawksmoor, Meatopia, Pitt Cue & Co) will be creating culinary magic for the weekend’s al fresco banquet menus. Guests can also indulge in artisan picnics, wood-fired eats, as well as local food trucks where there will be a melting pot of local flavours and globally influenced cooking ranging from Latin, Greek or Northern Thai street food to a wood fired pizza oven making rustic sourdough pizza.
A lakeside bar will be open every day until late, or take a scheduled beer and nature pairing trail and discover secret micro bars that will provide delicious cocktails and juices.
Accommodation is available in 25 fully-furnished luxury bell tents set up as stay / work creative spaces. The ‘Canvas Studios’ (sleep 2-3) with double beds, woodburning stoves, fire pits, bespoke lighting, crisp linens, fluffy towels and bathrobes, artists easels, a guitar and Bramley bath products. OR for a larger option (sleeps 2-4) book one of the five ‘Canvas Suites’ with an additional living area, rustic four poster bed, vanity unit and private lakeside terrace.
