The thought of cold, windy nights and the rain battering down centimetres from your head does not appeal to everyone. Sharing a shower (if you're lucky!) And a hole being the toilet is not everyone's cup of tea. Camping is certainly not the ideal getaway for some people, but many people like the thought of the idea but are not brave enough to chance it with the unpredictable elements. If this is you, then you may be pleased to hear that camping is evolving, in the shape of glamping.
Glamor camping provides a cheaper alternative for people seeking a break at a time when many people are making cut backs on their expenses. Glamping offers a holiday that is far cheaper and without the fuss or cost of traveling abroad. It can be enjoyed by all sorts of groups, families, friends and couples wanting a romantic getaway.
It is thought that glamping began at music festivals in the UK. Festival goers were disillusioned with ridiculously early start times to pitch their tents. Companies began offering luxury accommodation- for a festival at least- and would drop it off for you before building it. Another benefit of doing this at festivals was that Glamping saved you making numerous trips to and from the car with a heavy load on your back.
Glamping Holiday lets are not limited to festivals. Glamping has now expanded from festivals, with specific glamping sites popping up around the country each month. One of the wonders of glamping is the variety of accommodation you can find yourself staying in. They can be literally anything, such as a converted VW camper van, a tipi, a yurt, bell tents and huts, among many others.
There are many reasons why you should try glamping. The advantages of the glapping experience allows for people to be closer to the countryside and nature, unlike many hotels. And, unlike a lot of other camping opportunities, electricity is available in most of the accommodation so you do not feel like you're a cave man living in the Stone Age. Depending on your needs, you can enjoy your own toilet, shower and cooking facilities.
Holiday Lets are expecting glamping to really take off in the near future. Lots of people have traveled the world and stayed in luxury hotels, but not many have been glamping and stayed in a converted gypsy caravan! If this sounds like fun to you and you want a unique camping experience, give it a chance for a holiday to remember!
