What is Glamping?
From converted horse lorries to shepherd’s huts, what is glamping and why could it be the perfect holiday for you.
Originating from the words ‘glamourous’ and ‘camping’, glamping provides a holiday where you can enjoy all that nature has to offer with the added luxuries of self catering accommodation. Glamping retreats can vary greatly. From safari tents and geodomes that have clear connections with traditional camping. To cabins and treehouses which are a very different style of accommodation to staying in a tent.
What are the benefits of Glamping?
- Less packing – Whilst camping is fun, there is a lot to pack! From a tent to sleeping bags, foldable tables and chairs and the list goes on. Trying to cram it all into the back of your car and then leaving no space for the dog! Often most glamping accommodation will provide everything you need for a relaxing holiday. So just pack your suitcase and jump in the car!
- A comfy bed – Whether you’d camp on an airbed or a mat, there is no denying the comfort of a proper bed! After a day’s exploring, retreat back to your luxury glamping abode and climb into the cosiest of beds for a restful night’s sleep – ready to do it all again the next day!
- More time to explore – With no lost time pitching your tent and setting up your camp, you have more time for exploring and working out where the nearest pub is!
- Cosy and comfortable – Most glamping accommodation will be designed to keep you cosy and warm no matter what the weather. So you don’t need to worry about adverse weather, leaky tents and a lack of sleep!
