Experience the best glamping holiday with these essential luxury camping items

Luxury Glamping includes all of the necessities to make your stay extra special

Lantern & Larks' sites provide all the luxury camping equipment you need for a simple, hassle-free, outdoors getaway. The tents are elegantly furnished, with utensils and cooking equipment all provided. Lantern & Larks truly ensures comfort under canvas; all three bedrooms are spacious and separate with solid pine beds (real mattresses, not airbeds!), duvets and sheets all included. The tents are floored throughout with wooden decking, extending to a spacious front deck, and the soft sturdy walls give you a warm and peaceful night’s sleep in any weather. There is running water, with a shower and toilet too – so no struggling into willies for loo dash in the early hours. You can stand and cook in a real kitchen, make use of the wood-burning stove, or even take things outside and enjoy a barbecue on the fire pit under the stars!
