Be a glamper and get that 'close to nature' feel without the hassle!
In the UK, glamping holidays (or glamorous camping to give it its proper name) have really taken off in recent years. Now, all over the UK there are secluded sites nestled in woodlands, farmlands and meadows where little pods and yurts are springing up.
The big advantage over traditional camping and caravanning is the convenience. Everything is already set up for you, so you can roll up with just the bare essentials in your arms for a weekend of glamping. What’s more, these holidays with a difference needn't cost the earth in terms of both budget and being environmentally friendly.
So pick one of the glamping venues throughout the UK, grab some essential food goodies, clothes and drink, check yourself into a pod or tipi for your holiday and......relax! The best thing about these 'away from it all' holidays is that you can do as much or as little as you like in a lovely British countryside setting - that's what UK glamping is all about, whether it's on a farm, hidden in leafy pine forest in a National Park or near a lake where people spotting is swapped for gazing out at families of ducks and swans.
Is glamping for me?
If you’ve never glamped before, you might well be wondering what it’s actually going to be like. Will we be holed up in freezing, unheated leaky wooden shed? Will I have to walk miles for a wee? Is it only cold showers or worse still, none at all? Well, there’s a handy guide to glamping that’s been written that’ll tell you all you need know. Have a read and then that way you can decide whether glamping is for you or not before you commit to booking.
And of course, whilst we talk about all the facilities and mod cons that may or may not be available, the main thing to remember is that it’s all about the location with these holidays. Without sounding like a hippy, it’s all about getting close to nature. What could be better than a morning chorus of birdsong to wake up to? And who hasn’t dreamt of sitting on the decking watching day slowly turn to night with nothing to ruin your view of the sunset?
If you want to ramp up the romance factor even more, have a look at our Romantic Breaks collection with cosy accommodation in treehouses, airstreams and country houses to bring out the love!
As for when you go away in your pod or your yurt, it’s worth noting that glamping holidays are available all year round in the UK, which means you can pick which season you want to enjoy. Glampers tend to love the freshness of spring and the colours and crisp leaves of autumn best, but wherever and whenever you choose in the UK for your glamping treat, these holidays are sure to revive and rejuvenate the soul in the camping mixed with glamour kind of way!
