A Beginner’s Guide to Glamping
So, you love the idea of camping in the great outdoors, but you can’t quite say goodbye to your creature comforts? Glamping is the perfect solution. Featuring all of the best bits of camping with a little luxury and glamour thrown in, glamping can be a great experience.
What exactly is glamping?
Glamping is exactly as its name suggests: the perfect combination of outdoor living and hotel comfort. The concept has been around for a few years now but is really appealing to those looking for an alternative to beach holidays or city breaks.
Is glamping right for you?
Couples, families, singletons and even honeymooners are choosing this type of holiday today and glamping is also becoming more popular as a corporate team-building option.
Glamping is also perfect for those planning a staycation – that’s where you choose to have a vacation in your home country or just a few miles from home. You’ll also find that more and more music festivals are offering glamping options for their customers that also give you VIP access to music areas and other exclusive offers.
What do I need to take with me?
You are still camping at the end of the day so consider this when packing. Wellington boots, wet weather gear, gloves, hats, and warm clothing are just some of the items you’ll need to pack. The glamping site at Kenton Hall Estate is well-appointed so apart from appropriate clothing and food, there’s not much else you need to bring!
What should I expect from glamping?
When glamping, you are essentially in the great outdoors, close to nature. You will have lovely accommodation ready for you on arrival so you can experience camping at its best. Whether you want to toast marshmallows as the sun goes down, or cook and eat al fresco, make the most of the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There is no wifi for a reason, so switch off and relax…
