It may have technically been around for hundreds of years, but glamping has only just really hit the mainstream in the last half a decade or so. However, since this time, it’s safe to say that it’s well and truly on the map in terms of holidaying options, with the recent news that 25 million Brits are planning to staycation this year reinforcing this. And so it comes as little surprise that the Oxford English Dictionary has finally included glamping, along with 999 new words, in its database.
The newest members to the Oxford English Dictionary ranks were announced earlier this month, revealing the most up to date words on the population’s lips and keyboards, of which the abbreviation for glamourous camping – glamping – was featured.
Here’s how glamping will appear:
A form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping: ‘glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries’.
We couldn’t be happier to see glamping added to the long list of words in the dictionary, and we’ll surely be celebrating the fact! Why not join us by booking a luxury camping UK break today?
