What is Glamping?

The term glamping stems from the amalgamation of the words ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’. Glamping is essentially a hybrid of the age-old form of accommodation that is camping, which as we’re sure you’re aware, involves sleeping under the stars with the basics and a tent. However, glamping takes things up a few notches and allows you to immerse yourself in accommodation and facilities that appeal to those looking to experience a more luxurious and comfort-orientated break that you simply cannot get with traditional camping.

Why Glamping?

With glamping, it’s all about gaining enjoyment from a pure, natural and relaxing experience that other holidays just can’t provide – that’s what makes glamping UK so unique!

Unlike choosing a room with or without a view in a hotel, when it comes to selecting the luxury camping abode that best suits your wants and needs, there’s far more scope. For example, you might fancy a stay in a treehouse, or perhaps a yurt holiday is more up your street? So, whether you want to experience a stay in a shepherd’s hut or an eco pod, you’re opening yourself and your loved ones up to an opportunity to revel in the unsurpassable beauty and stunning surroundings, not to mention the unique luxury that the property provides. And then there’s all that amazing fresh air that expels the stresses and tensions associated with daily life with every breath!

Glamping is all about allowing yourself to get in touch with nature but without sacrificing that comfort and lack of facilities.
