Also known as boutique camping, posh camping or comfy camping. Glamping allows travellers to experience nature without giving up on life little luxuries. It also negates the need to find pitches and put up tents whilst importantly freeing up time to open a bottle of Chablis and sit back and relax – just what a holiday is for.
Thanks to this “revolutionary” form of camping one of the most exciting sections of the holiday accommodation industry was born. It’s certainly fun looking through the wide variety and styles of Glamping on offer. Many people have now heard of the Tipis, Wigwams, Bell Tents Yurts and Shepherds huts and there is certainly something for every taste and budget, however there are many more glamping accommodation types to consider! Here are some of them…
Similar to wooden wigwams, these provide lovely luxury style glamping, with beds, shower and toilets facilities.

What could be more romantic than to stay in a Gypsy caravan? Some even offer a B&B option!

These are generally more basic than many of the Glamping options, and offer a wooden structure, rather than canvas. Practical and a great way to camp!

Cottages on Wheels
These are similar to shepherd huts, but a bit more “cottagey!” – very cute, and these are the first we have seen of these!

These are similar to Bell Tents, but larger – these are inspired by the wonderful Safari Tents found out in Africa, and typically have a couple of rooms, so great for a family holiday where you have teenagers wanting their own room!

Converted Railway Carriages
So lovely! We have just had this glamping category added to our site, and we think they’re delightful. The same sort of size as a largish Shepherds hut, principally the same sort of idea, just a bit different!
