Sleep in a Big Red Forest Bubble, The Sleepy Explorer’s Globe

The Explorer's Globe

This was such a lovey get away, where we didn’t want to ever leave. It was private and secluded and so good to be away from the hassle of normal life. ✨

Suspended in a forest in Hallaton, England, you will find a giant red bubble which they call the Sleepy Explorer’s Globe. Usually fully booked, this bubble sleeps three people over two beds, and comes with great views of the forest. The Globe belongs to super host Amy and has 2 acres of woodland surrounding it. If you want an oddly shaped forest experience you won’t forget, this is the perfect solution.

About the Globe

The people who run the hanging forest globe are trying to live as harmoniously with nature as possible. The compost created in your toilet even goes to fertilising the unique blend of trees here. The 2 acre woodland contains another 2 woodland stays, so be mindful of your neighbours. The Sleepy Explorer’s Globe is a great off grid stay with no internet. Get out and explore or relax and read. The forest is full of life. Meditate. Hire a bike. There’s so much here to see and do.

A Bit About Airbnb

Airbnb are a huge name in multinational travel. They operate all over the world, with their western market particularly strong. Airbnb uses an innovative model that allows you to stay in someone’s house, rather than in a hotel or other accommodations. Sometimes the owner rents out a room and sometimes you have the whole property to yourself. No matter what happens, though, you stay with a local person who has in-depth knowledge of the local area.

Airbnb hosts work hard to earn 5 star reviews. This makes for an excellent experience, most of the time. Traveling with them means your local guide can pass on information to help you make the most of your trip. They can leave you the best takeaway menus from the area, gift you literature on local attractions, and even put together welcome packs for you.

Airbnb began in 2007 when two hosts in San Francisco rented out their properties. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength to become a worldwide guest hosting firm. Users can sign up to rent out space in their own homes or sign up as guests. A review process helps keep everyone aligned.
