Glamping is all about getting out in the wilderness but still having the creature comforts of your own home. Regular camping doesn’t normally offer the comfortable accommodation you might expect to find in a hotel or a bed and breakfast. This is where glamping has emerged – to fill the niche of being about to get close to nature while still having the comforts of a hotel stay.

The Rise in the Popularity of Glamping

In recent years, glamping has become increasingly popular. More and more glamping guests are realising the benefits of being able to camp within a luxurious surrounding. While still being eco friendly, often with tents fitted with solar power and efficient energy hot water systems, guests can still enjoy luxuries such as sleeping in a bed and having a cupboard to store their clothing in.

The Many Benefits of Glamping

There are many people who’d love to get closer to nature but despise ‘roughing’ it while camping, going without electricity or not having a proper toilet to use. This is where glamping’s benefits come to the fore. While being able to enjoy the starlit sky, guests who are glamping can also embrace luxury eco-tourism at the same time.

What to Expect on a Glamping Trip

Glamping styles, locations and setups vary widely, but you can expect a least a little luxury if you choose glamping accommodation. Your tent might be kitted out with appliance, and could even feature a TV or a bathtub. Some glamping accommodation even comes with luxuries such as your own butler and private chef.

Glamping is here to stay

There’s nothing worse than going on a camping holiday and having it rain continuously, ruining your getaway. With glamping, you can snuggle up in bed and listen to the patter-patter of raindrops on the canopy roof. With comforts like these, it’s clear more and more guests will continue to enjoy glamping. This new style of accommodation is clearly here to stay.
