Why glamping is the perfect group holiday

Posted by Katy Peck

Searching for a way to get family and friends together in 2020? Maybe you’re planning a family holiday or anniversary celebration, or simply want to spend time with all those friends you haven’t seen in a while? Whatever your reason for bringing everyone together, glamping is the perfect way to share an unforgettable break with the people you love.

It might not be the first thing on your list, but we think there are many reasons to choose something a little bit different for your next group getaway.

Firstly, glamping is the perfect mixture of comfort and adventure. It falls somewhere between a cottage break and ‘real’ camping, making it a great choice for people of all ages, abilities and interests. All our luxury tents have hot running water, wood-burning stoves, kitchens and real wood furniture (including proper beds!), making them supremely comfortable. Meanwhile, they still manage to maintain that feeling of being part of the great outdoors, nestled amongst some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK and surrounded by nature, open spaces and fresh air. If you need more information about what is glamping, please read our guide.

The other lovely thing about glamping (in our opinion) is that there’ll be something that appeals to everyone. If the grandparents just want to relax with a good book by the fire, and the teenagers want to play a game of fetch with the dog outside, then that’s fine. Perhaps the grown-ups would prefer to chat in the hot tub while the kids ride their bikes? It’s your choice! The joy of a glamping holiday is that there really is something for everyone, with endless opportunities for quality time together.

However, we know that, even during a group holiday, it’s occasionally nice to have some space to yourself. With our fantastic sites, you can each have your own tents to relax and unwind in. Individual groups and families may like to enjoy a quiet breakfast or morning in their own tent, then wander over to meet everyone else around the firepit and plan the rest of the day’s adventures, be it cooking a delicious meal over the flames or playing a game of football between the tents.

Furthermore, groups wishing to get out and about will find all manner of fun activities in the surrounding area. From beautiful country and coastal walks to water sports and adventure centres, or even just exploring some of the UK’s many picture-perfect towns and villages, you’ll never be short of things to do.

Last but not least, glamping with Lantern & Larks is a great choice for your next celebration, whether it’s a birthday or anniversary, or even a wedding or hen/stag do. If you’re looking for a relaxed and unique way to mark an occasion, then you’ve come to the right place. We love helping our guests celebrate their happy occasions with their nearest and dearest, and would be delighted to help make your festivities truly unforgettable.

Our luxury glamping sites provide a perfect, practical base for your group holiday. Each safari tent sleeps up to six people in 3 bedrooms (1 king room, 1 twin room and 1 bunk bed). And with between five and six tents on each site, we can comfortably accommodate groups of 30 and 36 people. Even better, when you book our whole site, you can enjoy a 10% discount!
