Glamping has become well established over the last few years, with people the world over realising that there's nothing like the great outdoors to blow the cobwebs away and make you feel alive. And these days you can do that in some style - all the style and comfort of staying in a more permanent structure, yet with the wonderful great outdoors at your feet, stars to gaze at and campfires to cook over.
Otherwise known as glamping - all the fun of camping with none of the discomfort. Deciding to stay in a dome, a yurt or a tipi is a way of keeping your holiday costs down, getting back to nature, and wanting your holiday to go on forever...
It's a child's dream; a holiday in a treehouse. Actually, it's most adults' dream as well, so take the kids and give it a go - mind you, no going back to your boring holiday apartments after you've had a holiday in a treehouse.....
Now this is how to holiday! If you're over glamping and want to think even more outside the box then a stay in a wagon or an old fashioned caravan could be the way forward and the kids will simply adore it. Or it's the chance to cosy up with your loved one without breaking the bank.
Over the last few years glamping has become more and more popular and it isn’t hard to see why - the opportunity to combine nature, fresh air and the carefree spirit of camping with the comforts and luxuries of home is extremely appealing! And it comes in numerous forms too so if you’re thinking about a glamping weekend you’ll have plenty of choice, from geodesic domes and traditional tipis to colourful gypsy caravans and old-school houseboats. So where to start?
The great thing about a glamping holiday is that you can make it as rustic or as decadent as you like. At one end of the scale you will find off-grid Mongolian yurts in serene woodland settings and converted shepherd huts with small yet perfectly formed interiors. And at the other end there are sumptuous safari tents with all the mod cons you’d expect from a hotel and enchanting treehouses with wood burners and hot tubs. So whether you’re home or abroad, a couple or a family, celebrating or relaxing, there’s a glamping holiday to suit everyone.
