Over the last few years, the trend of ‘glamorous camping’, more commonly known as glamping, has really taken off in the UK. We think glamping makes the perfect holiday, so here are some of the top reasons you should make your next break a fabulous glamping getaway.
- You’ll get the camping experience without feeling the chill
Let’s face it: we don’t get the best weather in Britain. Even at the height of summer you’re bound to face more than your fair share of rain. And while traditional camping makes for a great holiday, you can be faced with a soggy, ill-equipped tent and nowhere to go. This problem is solved by going on a glamping trip. Some sites offer yurts and small wooden chalets, but even a glamping tent can do the trick. Glamping tents come with sun and rain porches, and heavy duty canvas so you know you’ll always be protected from the elements.
- You can get away from the hustle and bustle of tourist hotspots
Yes, exotic resort hotels are lovely, but they can also get rather busy. There are glamping sites up and down the British Isles – so you can pitch up in some spectacular surroundings away from the millions of other holiday makers.
- You can save money on your holiday without compromising on experience
Taking a well-deserved holiday, even in the UK, can be costly – especially if you have children and can only book your breaks in peak season. Going on a glamping holiday can help you reduce costs as, on average, glamping sites are a lot cheaper than hotels and holiday cottages. Saving on the cost, however, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on amenities, which brings us nicely on to point number four…
- You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the creature comforts on offer
Some people are understandably turned off by the basic ‘rural’ aspects of traditional camping. With glamping, you get the best of both worlds. You can get back to nature on a rural campsite – exploring the area and stargazing every night – but you can also have a memory foam mattress and a place to cook your meals in comfort.
So, what are you waiting for? Book a glamping holiday for 2017 for a best of both worlds experience you can share with your whole family. You can thank us later!
