Summer Holiday Cancelled? Go Glamping!

As the weather starts to improve, I find myself itching to book the annual summer break. Normally, like most of you, my first inclination is to find to somewhere with sun, beaches, pool side cocktails and and a local population that speaks as little English as I speak ancient Latin. This formula has worked well over the years and apart from all the inherent stresses of packing, arguing, getting ready to fly over the ocean in large metal bird, I’m usually happy for 2 – 3 days during the week away and am excited to do it again.
Unfortunately the way the winds blowing makes me doubt we’re going to be able to do that this year.
But, hey, don’t worry, the situation seems to be getting better, albeit, inch by inch, but as things start to open up again we could still have the holiday we’ve been clamoring for, a little closer to home.
I understand that for many of you, the first reaction to hearing, ‘holiday at home’ is a dreary caravan / campsite, littered with crisp packets, empty cans of lager and drunken football fanatics. Or wild trekking in woods, with wet feet, wet trousers and a wet tent that never ends up looking like the one in the picture. But what if I told you there countless, luxurious Glamping sites dotted all over the UK, that give you all the spiritual benefits of spending time outdoors, while enjoying all the familiar comforts of a night in a hotel.
What is glamping
”The word ‘glamping’ derives its name from Glamorous Camping, a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those usually associated with traditional camping. Glamping is all about the ‘experience’. It’s about immersing yourself in your surroundings, taking great gulps of air, feeling the earth under your feet and dissolving away your daily stress. It’s about getting back to nature without getting back to basics. You won’t be living out of a rucksack and sleeping on the floor. No, Glamping is most definitely luxury camping.” – Credit
