What is a glamping holiday: A day in the life

What says relaxation more than a quiet escape to the great British countryside?

Nothing to trouble you but bird song and the surrounding sounds of nature. Endless walks right on your doorstep, and stunning scenery all around...

Our glamping sites are ideal for any occasion, whether it's a cheeky break with the little ones, a romantic weekend away or a well-earned family holiday. Guaranteed to provide the utmost comfort under canvas, our Colonial-style tents promise home-from-home luxuries that leave you wanting for nothing.

Rise with the sun.

Wake to the sounds of the country and enjoy a hearty breakfast out on your own personal terrace, safe in the knowledge you have nowhere to be and no schedule to keep.

Along with solid wooden floors and spacious interiors, our tents have fully-functioning kitchens with all the equipment and facilities you'll need to prepare the kind of breakfast that will set you up for a day of adventures. Get the children involved and enjoy a leisurely morning before setting off for the great outdoors.

Each of our properties has been hand-selected for its incredible location.

They are ideal for those wanting to explore new places, discover local wildlife and reconnect with nature. Why not spend some time romping the fields and frolicking with the children? There's all kinds of hidden corners to discover and secret walks to find.

Maybe you'd rather spend the day visiting one of the local attractions?

Whichever of our sites you choose, you will be within easy distance of excellent attractions and activities. Whether you're a beachy person, into the local heritage, enjoy a touch of shopping or just fancy kicking back on a nature reserve to watch the birds go by, our sites offer something for everyone.

As the afternoon settles in you may want to start wending your way back to base camp to unwind. Perhaps you'd rather not stray too far from the site once you're here, and that's fine too!...

Take a stroll to meet some of the neighbours.

 

 

 

 

Or invent a new game...

 

 

 

 

Maybe just relax in the sun with the latest Simple Things magazine.

 

 

 

 

Don't forget there is an onsite honesty shop.

All the essentials are waiting for you here, including charging points for the lanterns or your phone (there's no electricity in the tents, of course). You can grab some bits and bobs for dinner or stock up on some bacon for tomorrow's breakfast. Pick up some fresh eggs at Sweffling or wander to the bakery at Exton for a freshly baked loaf. The shop has replacement ice bottles for the coolers so you can keep things fresh, and there is a selection of games and books which you are welcome to borrow too.

You have unlimited wood for your fie pit for the duration of your stay, so send the youngsters off with one of the wheelbarrows and make it their job to collect the logs for the evening's fire. If they're tempted by wheelbarrow races while they're on their mission, well that's a good use of time too.

Al fresco dining is one of the huge draws of outdoor holidays.

Come the evening everyone can pitch in to create something delicious together. Your own personal fire pit doubles as a BBQ, so you can get something grilling away. Don't forget the log-burner inside is great for steamy stews and there is a double hob in the kitchen.

Take a look at our blog for '8 things you didn't know you could cook on a campfire'.

Once all the excitement of the day is drawing to a close, you'll be pleased to know there's no need to venture far at bed time.

All our tents have hot running water and showers, not to mention its own toilet – so no wash blocks to speak of and no midnight dashes to the loo! Yours won't be the sleeping arrangements of ordinary camping, our bedrooms are all separate and furnished with solid wooden beds, real mattresses and cosy quilts. Everything is made up and waiting for you on arrival, right down to the towels, so there's no need to lift a finger.

Take some time for yourself.

Out in the open countryside the stars are brighter than ever. Once the youngsters are all tucked up, make the most of a peaceful evening curled around the fire. Relive your childhood camping trips and crack out the marshmallows with some roasting sticks, or even open a bottle of something special to make an evening of it.
