As summer approaches, the need for a getaway gains momentum. If you’re looking to get in touch with nature this year but you’re reluctant to leave the private shower behind, glamping could be just the thing for you.
Glamping is the fusion of the words “glamour” and “camping”. It was born from the need to go camping without losing all of the comforts of home. Instead of struggling with the tent poles this summer and saying goodbye to the comfortable mattress, take a look at glamping.
As glamping gains popularity, many sources are investigating what they think are the best places to visit. However, this is something that varies depending on the individual. Here is a look at some of the different types of glamping experiences out there.
Nestled on the edge of Exmoor National Park in Devon, Longlands has the best valley views, along with five-star safari tents complete with en-suite. You can explore the local surroundings, including some of Devon’s best beaches, knowing that your tent will be waiting for you afterward with its king-sized bedroom, clean and fresh shower facilities, and country house-style kitchen.
Not-so-secret in the meadow
Suffolk is quickly becoming one of the capitals of the UK glamping scene, and it is home to the not-so-Secret Meadows. This sprawling 115 acres of countryside is home to six luxurious lodge-style tents. If you still aren’t feeling the tent theme, there is also the middle-earth inspired Hobbit Box, a converted wooden horsebox that is bursting with home comforts.
Shed load of difference
If the Hobbit box is more your scene, shepherds huts like those located on the Isle of Skye may be a good alternative. Huts such as these contain comfy beds, home comforts and toasty wood burners, with an enviable view of the Cuillin Mountains, while the dramatic coastline sounds like just the thing to get a step closer to nature. Alternatively, you could leave the coastline behind and opt for a spot of countryside living. Huts such as the ones at http://www.cotswoldshepherdshuts.co.uk/ can be found all over the UK.
