What is Glamping?

The word 'glamping' derives its name from Glamorous Camping, a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those usually associated with traditional camping.

For us, glamping represents the past, the present and future of camping.

Glamping is all about the ‘experience’. It’s about immersing yourself in your surroundings, taking great gulps of air, feeling the earth under your feet and dissolving away your daily stress. It’s about getting back to nature without getting back to basics. You won’t be living out of a rucksack and sleeping on the floor. No, Glamping is most definitely luxury camping.

More recently the term Glamping has encompassed any kind of travel accommodation deemed unique or unusual such as geodesic domes, tree houses or Airstream caravans for example.

You can generally define a glampsite as follows:

  • Its structure is free-standing and self-contained. (In theory it could be dis-assembled and moved fairly easily, unlike a traditional bricks and mortar dwelling such as a hotel).
  • It opens out onto the great outdoors. (ie there’s no lift to the foyer!)
  • Creature comforts come as standard (ie bed, hot water and even electricity)
The very nature of Glamping means there’s an accommodation type for everyone. From locally sourced and built eco-pods which offer complete protection from the elements to igloos to traditional Native American tipis to a vast range of wooden and tented cabins to VW Combi Vans.

The comfort levels and price of these also range wildly so there really is something for everyone and for every budget.
