Glamping: The Luxury Camping Holiday
Glamping or glamorous camping combines two words which don’t normally go together. However, for those looking for a completely different style of holiday or hotel accommodation, glamping offers the ideal way to combine the rustic charms of a country location with the conveniences and creature comforts of a hotel room.
When considering a luxury camping holiday or experience, there are a surprising array of options available, here are just a few ideas to get you started:
Yurts and Tipis – From the Mongolian steeps (Yurts) to the North American plains (Tipis) Yurt and Tipi holidays are bound to add a novel twist to the traditional camping holiday.
Luxury Yurt and Tipi options come in a variety of formats from those boasting fully furnished hotel style bedrooms inside to romantic hideaways with soft low lying beds and central fireplaces.
Luxury Caravans – Another fun option is to consider a wide range of sites offering novelty versions of the caravan holiday. Options include everything from a stay in a vintage American airstream or “silver bullet” caravan to taking up residence in a converted VW camper van for the weekend.
Luxury Treehouse Hotels – Who said that tree houses where just for the kids? The humble tree house has now become a popular alternative to the camp site and hotel room. Tree house hotels now provide a range of accommodation styles from the humblest of tree top hideaways to a hotel room in the sky.
Safari and Large Tents – Another option is to go to one of the many sites in the UK offering pre-built large scale or “Safari Tents.” Like the Yurt, such establishments offer a variety of levels of luxury from a large pre-erected tent suitable for the whole family to smaller bell tents decked out with every creature comfort for the hibernating couple.
So if you are looking for something a little different to the usual camping or hotel experience, catch the bug and try a spot of glamorous camping.
