It’s the old-new way to camp! Choose a combination of camping and comfort because why – in a country like the United Kingdom – should you rely too much on the weather. Travel safely :) and don’t make compromises when it comes to enjoying this outdoor feeling and your share of luxury!
What is Glamping?
From a glamping trip, you can expect getting in touch with nature again and staying right amidst of it. You will be accommodated in a luxury camp ground with modern facilities so that you create a new way of luxurious camping (It’s in the name!)
Types of Glamping – What is a Yurt?
There are numerous types of glamping breaks. In some, you might stay in a ‘yurt’, a Mongolian-style luxury tent – super cozy and perfect for a romantic glamping break for 2. Other glamping deals involve a stay in a pod. Those are mini houses, luxuriously equipped so that you won’t miss a thing. On some glamping grounds, you even find hot tubs to add that spa feeling to your glamping experience. The highlight of glamping trips are often the locations. This one here in Ibiza is set right at the cliffs so you can reconnect with nature.
Specific Glamping deals in the UK
I must say in parts of the UK they have really mastered the glamping deals. You will find amazing glamping grounds in Cornwall or Wales or even near London. A lot also feature on Airbnb and that’s where you can find great deals. Since the weather is usually a bit warmer in Cornwall I would highly recommend a glamping trip to Cornwall. It’s the perfect spot as nature is just stunning…
Glamping Holidays in Ireland
You can find some great gems amongst the glamps in Ireland. There are for example converted and restored caravans that work as glamping pods.
Usually, you find that those glamping types are on their own grounds, secluded so you won’t have any neighbours. This gives you your extra piece of privacy for a glamping holiday for 2, or it’s also a great place to have the family around but your private area, so you don’t need to worry about how loud the kids are :) See, it’s easy to turn it into a glamping trip for families.
How much does Glamping cost?
That’s the great thing about luxurious camping. Surely, it’s not as cheap as basic camping, but it’s also nowhere near the price of a hotel. You could be paying £30 – £80 per night A great way to save money when you plan a cheap glamping break for your family. The bigger tents, yurts or pods can accommodate 4-6 people and then the cost even go down. You could be paying £139 per night for the whole bunch of you with this glamping deal in Suffolk including Spa Access. Depending on the facilities surrounding you, breakfast is also sometimes included – especially in those super luxury glamping holidays.
What to take on a Glamping Break
Depending on the luxury level of your glamping break that you booked you might not need a lot. Sheets and towels are usually included. Some have a little kitchenette in the pods so, similar to a normal camping deal you’d have to provide yourselves with food. On many grounds, they also have BBQ-ing facilities that you can use free of charge. Often there is a fire pit right in front of your pod. My tip: Don’t forget to bring marshmallows and roast them over the fire! Yumm! Since you have a decent amount of space (more than in a 2-person tent) you don’t need to be too strict when packing.
Where to book a Glamping Break?
When you want to go glamping in the UK, you will find a lot of websites that you can book your glamping break through. However, I would say, keep a close look at Groupon and Wowcher. There you will find great glamping deals for 2 or for families and groups for a bargain price and they often throw in some extras, like a food hamper or camp fire starting kit. Apart from that, Airbnb is also a safe bet. This site will also show you the more extravagant deals…
Who goes Glamping?
It could be you?! The glamper is an outdoor-loving, fun and adventurous person, who doesn’t want to miss out on his or her share of luxury. People who go glamping are nature loving but don’t fancy sleeping on a thin air-mattress on the ground. If you book your stay on one of the community glamping grounds where you actually have “neighbours” you will find it easy to meet people and gather around the fire place in the evening, with a couple of drinks.
Families will love it: Kids can run around, enjoy the nature: they have the biggest playground surrounding them. For a romantic couple’s glamping break you might prefer the more secluded yurts that also offer special candle light dinners, a luxurious breakfast and a bottle of wine :)
No matter what kind of traveller you are I would suggest simply trying it out!
