Glamping on a Budget
Having become popular as a leisure activity by the late 1800s, the first truly portable tent was designed not long after. How it has evolved since then!
The joy of spending a relaxing week, in a beautiful location, for an affordable price is the timeless draw of camping. This remains true for the newest form of canvas accommodation: Glamping (glamorous camping).
Comfortable camping, at an affordable price
Portability is not the be-all and end-all of camping anymore. Glamping is the most comfortable way yet of enjoying the great outdoors. It offers all the benefits of camping, but with the added bonus of proper beds, furniture, floors, running water and real (standing height!) rooms.
Forget the days of having to set up your tent, throwing a temper tantrum when you realise you haven't got enough pegs and needing to march to the toilets at 3am, which are half a mile away. You have your own WC and shower, and everything is set up and ready for you when you arrive. The only thing you need to bring is yourselves.
You may expect all these luxuries to make glamping expensive, but we think you'll be pleasantly surprised by our prices. Glamping is a fantastic way of bringing friends and family together in a cost-efficient, hassle-free way; or enjoying a romantic get-away for two.
Enjoy Britain's beautiful countryside
You won't want to spend your whole trip inside your tent, though, as there is stunning, wide-open scenery right on your doorstep. Romp through crunchy woodland, spend long peaceful evenings around the fire under the stars, and bask in the sights and sounds of the great outdoors. Venturing a little further out, you'll find beaches to play on, villages and towns to explore and country houses to visit. You'll never be bored on a glamping holiday.
The UK remains the most popular holiday destination with Brits, not only because they're often cheaper, but because they're much more relaxing. You don't have to worry about finding your passport, booking flights or weighing your suitcases - you can just hop into your car and go. Plus, we're sure you have fond memories of camping as a child; glamping is just the adult version (although kids love it too)!
The most ‘hands-on' way to enjoy the fantastic natural delights that the charming British countryside has to offer, glamping is both easy and affordable.
