We love glamping! This summer we want to learn why you, the Glamper, love it too. We hope to do this through the power of social media. Are you up for it? If yes, we want you to snap some pics of your stay, whether you’re glamping in the forest, or enjoying being a guest at ‘the’ festival wedding of the season! Then, for the chance to win a £50 glamping voucher using the hashtag #LoveGlamping in your caption tweet us if you’re a tweeter, or if you are more of an “instamoment” person follow our instagram feed, or we would love you to be our Facebook friend.
So why do we #LoveGlamping? Here are our main reasons for believing glamping always top trumps camping.
The beginning of a camping trip conjures up past memories of my dad complaining about lost tent pegs, terrible confusion about which tent pole goes where inevitably descending into a family tiff. Not a great start to a family trip.
However, arriving at a campsite for a glamping experience is a whole other ball game. You arrive, you walk over to your pitch, and waiting for you is a fully furnished, luxurious bell tent all set up ready for you to enjoy. No tent poles, missing pegs or family quarrel in sight. Just a taste of luxury in the great outdoors.
Also called boutique camping, luxury camping, posh camping, or comfy camping, glamping is todays modern, glamorous equivalent to camping. Think comfy beds, romantic lighting, chic furniture and luxury soft furnishings, all inside your 4 metre, 5 metre, 6 metre or Emperor Bell tent at your chosen venue. Now you can enjoy the escapism and adventure of a real camping trip without compromising on your comfort levels.
Once you have arrived and with your BBQ hamper awaiting, fire up the coals, pour yourself a drink and sit back chatting with your friends (feeling smug that everyone else is still putting up their tents).
You have had a wonderful day discovering the local sights in the New Forest. Maybe you have taken a long bike ride. Been on one of the many striking walks across the forest. And now after a local ale (or two) at the nearby pub you are feeling ready to retreat.
With soft coir matting underfoot, tea lights twinkling above your head and warm cosy blankets on your bed. Returning to your fully furnished bell tent means you can just lay down, shut your eyes and dream of your day’s adventure in total comfort. When you wake you will feel fully recharged ready for some more exploring.
Packing for camping can be epic as you need a lot even for the bare basics. This means valuable holiday time unpacking at the campsite, to then repack when you depart to then unpack when you arrive home. Crazy right? We love glamping as it takes all of that stress away and comes with some delightful extras without you lifting a finger.
For example, let us take the hassle of shopping away for you. Choose from one of our delicious fresh hampers, sourced from local produce and seasonal to your stay. Then using our kitchen essentials basket you can cook up a storm. And when you take out your ice cool drinks from your car compatible cool box (good idea huh) you won’t have to worry if you remembered to pack the bottle opener as we will have done it for you in your kitchen kit.
Post dinner imagine sitting around a camp fire with friends toasting marshmallows. Our fire pits will keep you toasty on a chilly night and you can create a festival camp feeling with cool festoon lighting around your tent or bell village.
The beautiful thing about glamping is that you can have all the romance of camping of being in the great outdoors, the twinkling stars and dining al fresco. You get to feel like you have escaped and are nestled away in your own little bit of luxury.
