Now more than ever, we are all itching to pack our bags, clamber in our cars and head out on an adventure. International travel may not be possible this summer for British.
“Glamping” (glamorous camping) combines all of the best parts of a British holiday: the great and beautiful outdoors, fun activities, delicious home cooking, and good value for money.
And the best part? Whether you are staying in a bell tent, treehouse, converted van, or wooden “pod”, you’ll be sleeping in comfort and style, rather than squashed in a tent you can’t stand up in and showering with a water bottle and funnel.
Check out our recommendations for five fabulous Glamping sites located across England.
Kymani Getaways – Southern England
Best for : fun with friends, family and larger groups
If your Glamping ideal involves a bell tent, then look no further than Kymani Getaways, which runs several Glamping sites across Hampshire, Wiltshire, Suffolk, and Surrey. Each site contains 10 spectacular bell tens along with a huge, central tipi and a firepit for cooking and socializing.
The bell tents are 6 meters tall and each contains a double and two single beds, all with proper mattresses. The tents are furnished with pretty rugs and mats, a full-length mirror, a vintage storage trunk, and a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty warm during those cool summer evenings.
Kymani’s Glamping sites are ideal for large groups of friends or family as you can pre-book live entertainment and activities, as well as pre-ordering all your food and drink.
The Quiet Site – Cumbria
The Quiet Site in Cumbria overlooks Ullswater, the second largest lake in the Lake District. With the Lake District on our doorstep, you’ll have access to incredible walks, magical waterfalls, and a fun selection of outdoor activities including kayaking, paddleboarding, and the GoApe high ropes course.
The eco-friendly site contains six luxury Glamping cabins that sleep, two adults. The 15 sqm cabins have underfloor heating, sprung double bed, kitchen appliances and utensils, full Wi-Fi, and their own inside WC, basin, shower, and towels. The cabins also contain a covered outside viewing area with deck chairs.
