Glamping has come a long way in the decade of its existence. Originally originating as a joke towards the high-income travellers wanting to camp but not willing to part with their luxuries, glamping developed into a serious holiday accommodation option, and firmly cemented itself within the camping industry in just a couple of years. This was down to a few factors, including income rises that allowed customers to spend a little extra on their staycations and the importance of unique locations and trips which glamping properties offer.
