Camping under the open sky in the wild, yet, heart of hearts, missing your creature comforts and worldly pleasures? Glamping is the perfect alternative as it has all the perks of camping plus amenities like a portable washing machine, heating and electricity. Camping with a tent under the stars is fun until the weather turns and you’re left in the cold dark with no where to go. Many people also choose stay in caravans instead which gives you that feeling of being away from home and at one with nature, but also still benefitting from real beds and hot water. Take a look at the best UK caravan parks to stay at if this sounds good to you. But what if we were to tell you that you can enjoy the luxury of a five star hotel while you stay further out in the wild and enjoy nature at its best…?

Welcome to Glam camping or glamorous camping for the uninitiated!

This is where all your creature comforts and frills are provided right there in your tent (tented camp) that is often even bigger than your bedroom. From elaborate interiors to air conditioning, heating facilities, in-suite bathrooms and more…
