SOAKING in hot seawater and being smothered in freshly picked seaweed on a beach is the latest outdoor sensation being offered by The Camper Van Cookbook author Martin Dorey. The BBC Two presenter is offering the natural beach-side spa experience as part of a bespoke weekend for VW camper owners.
“Seaweed baths are relatively common in Ireland but here in the UK it’s not something most of us would consider – even though many beauty products have seaweed in them,” he said. “Sitting in mineral-rich seaweed is odd, at first, but feels fantastic on the skin. I’m going to be demonstrating how good it is by setting up my own home-made seaweed spas during my series of Campervan Weekends in Devon this summer.”
Martin, who presented the TV series One Man And His Campervan also promises other wild experiences on his bespoke weekends. As a lifelong camper, VW owner and cook he, along with small team, will pass on their knowledge about living in the great outdoors, hopefully giving newbies and VW camper owners a weekend they won’t forget.
