5 Reasons to go Glamping
Glamping in the great outdoors
We at AdventureYogi started our yoga travel company through the experiences of living winters in the mountains and summers on the surf and windsurf beaches of Europe. We have lived and hung out in tents, caravans, vans, bell tents and tipis in campsites and in the wild and we have firsthand experience of so here are our 5 top reasons to glamp it instead of camp it!
Gone are the days of shivering in a sleeping bag in an uncomfortable fold out camp bed, wishing you were in a hotel room and finally giving in and sleeping in the car.
Glamping, or glamorous camping is the more sophisticated way to camp! These days you can stay in quirky small spaces, equipped with wood burners, walls and warmth! So if it is raining outside you can feel content, wrapped up, and warm while hugging a mug of cocoa.
The choice of glamping accommodation is fun and creative! Feel inspired by your glamping weekend away and stay in a shepherd’s hut, a yurt or tipi, even a double decker bus or safari tent! The owners of the glamping sites are creative and love their project and have great ideas to make your stay as comfortable and unique as possible.
Back to nature. The glamping sites that are set up around the UK are all unique, but you will find that a lot have no electricity, cooking is done by gas stoves and candlelight, sitting around fires in the evening and compost loos and showers heated by solar. You really are going back to basics, and it is SO refreshing! Allowing yourself time to spend with family and friends and really connect with them, and allowing the mind and body to have a break from technology.
You don’t need to prepare too much, pack up or pack down! Instead of having a checklist of your camping items to make your stay as comfortable as possible, all you need to do with glamping sites is take what you would to a hotel or outdoor weekend! Once you arrive, everything is ready, beds are made, hot water bottles are ready on beds, torches and candles available for you. It’s easy!
