Spain, Andalucia:

The desert landscapes surrounding Camping Los Escullos, in the rocky outcrop of Andalucia, are reminiscent of Luke Skywalker’s home town of Tatooine. The campsite is an ideal choice for those wishing to bask in the sun and with over 328 days of sunshine per year, guests will be left more than just a little ‘Lukewarm’.  There’s an outdoor swimming pool to cool off in and multi-sports courts for the more active.

Modern two-bedroom lodges start at £44.60 per night for up to five people.

They include all the must-have pleasantries needed on a ‘desert planet’, including air-conditioning, a fully-equipped kitchen, flat screen TV and outdoor terrace.

The campsite looks like Luke Skywalker's hometown Tatooine

England, Suffolk:

Feel like you’re camping under the forest moon of Endor by pitching your tent on a non-electric woodland pitch at Little Ropers Woodland Camping.

The campsite offers a truly unforgettable wild camping experience in the lush heart of the Stour Valley.

Non-electric woodland pitches start from £15 per night for up to four people.

Spain, Comunidad de Madrid:

Be inspired by the Ewoks of Endor and head up into the trees at Camping-Bungalows Monte Holiday where you can stay in the AT-AT style Skyscraper pods, which stand on stilts four metres above the ground.

The pods, which are heated for year-round comfort, offer spectacular views over the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park from the spacious outdoor terraces. There is a swimming pool and restaurant on site and for those wishing to take a day trip, Madrid is less than 80 km away.

The pods start at £42.44 per night for two people excluding bedding.

The pods are heated all year round PITCHUP.COM

4. England, Cumbria:

It’s not quite the remote ice-world of Hoth, but a blanket of snow in Penrith can quickly turn The Quiet Site into a snowscape. Stay warm (no need to involve any dead tauntauns…) by snuggling up in a two-bedroom wooden pod.

Each cosy pod is carpeted throughout and comes complete with heating, lighting and electricity points.  There are large family bathrooms available on site, a playground and a magnificent family pub.  The pub, located in a 17th-century barn, features a well-provisioned cellar, games room (with football, pool, air hockey and table tennis), television room and upstairs soft playhouse.

Camping pods start from £40 per night for up to two adults and two children.

The snowscapes in Penrith are just beautiful PITCHUP.COM

France, Midi Pyrénées:

It’s no Kashyyyk, but we feel the Wookiees would feel right at home in this treehouse, situated between Toulouse and Bordeaux, in the heart of the Gascogne region.

A hideaway tucked behind the trees, Domaine d’Escapa’s treehouse is perched five metres above the ground and features two bedrooms (a double bed and a large triple room), a separate kitchen and spacious outdoor terrace with private Jacuzzi. Those looking for something ‘chewie’ will benefit from the on-site take away service offering a range of local delights. Fresh pastries can be ordered for breakfast the following morning.

Domanie d’Escapa treehouse starts from £165.50 per night for up to five people.
