Are you the type of person who wants to escape the city, loves the outdoors but is not too keen on getting dirty, lying in a sleeping bag on a blow up mattress while listening to the rain just above your head, no access to any little luxuries having left your hair straighteners at home, let alone having to actually having to pitch your own tent when you arrive at a campsite in the pouring rain. Then why not try glamping?

Glamping is the modern equivalent of camping, it brings a whole new world of luxury to camping. You can still enjoy the outdoor life but with modern technology. You can arrive at a luxury site, perhaps stay in a bell tent with every amenity you can think of, some sites have wooden cabins, yurts or even tree houses so there is whole choice of accommodation you can choose from.  Which ever type of accommodation you stay in you are sure to have every domestic luxury you can think of, with electric generators, your own shower and toilet, then there is the more extravagant end of the scale arriving to champagne waiting for you in an ice bucket and your own hot tub, some glamping sites these days even have resort type facilities such as swimming pools and gyms.

For those not keen on camping but who still love the outdoor life this way you can enjoy the scenic views, take long countryside walks, dine outdoors or even cook over a campfire but you can retire to your comfortable bed, enjoy a warm shower in the privacy of your own accommodation all with a roof that definitely won’t let the rain leak through or have to worry what wildlife may wander in at any time of the night.  

Glamping has been becoming steadily more popular over recent years in the UK, the word ‘Glamping’ was even entered in the Oxford Dictionary in 2016. However, going right back to the 16th century luxury tent living was in existence, the Scottish Earl of Atholl laid on an extravagant array of tents in the Highlands for the visiting James V of Scotland, filled with luxuries as if from a palace. Henry V111 was also known to arrange such luxury himself for a diplomatic summit in Northern France, rumoured to even have fountains of red wine available for the guests on their arrival.

So Glamping may be the new word but outdoor luxury living is not, it further evolved when many years later Safari in Africa became the new fad for rich Britons, these wealthy types wanted to enjoy the outdoors, however they did not want to be without the luxury that through hotel luxury they had become accustomed to.

I’d Rather be Glamping
