Glamping in the UK is one of the hottest holiday trends in Europe.

Glamping combines stunning amenities with backcountry camping. You can enjoy the beauty and relaxation of being close to nature without having to give up a warm bath, a comfy bed or even good food, depending on how much you are willing to spend.

Glamping allows you to be in the middle of nature without all the hassle of setting up a tent and sleeping on the ground, without the inconvenience of using public restrooms and cooking with coolers.

These vacation options can even feature lavish amenities such as hot tubs, luxurious restrooms, premium beds, and stunning views.

With glamping, there is a price point for everyone, from the most affordable and simple accommodation to high-end luxury resorts that meet all your needs.

Glamping cabins give you the best of both worlds: spending quality time in nature and spending your nights in safety and comfort. A camping hut, bungalow, mini-cabin or hut – whatever you want to call it – is a relaxing place to spend your vacation and provides you with the security of a solid roof over your head. Because of their better insulation, luxury cottages can be found all over the UK, including low-season winter cottages.

Airstreams have gained a legion of fans around the world, and for good reason. They’re a unique and fun way to spend time outdoors and a great way for beginners to get started.

Leave your cooler and sleeping bag at home, you only need an overnight bag when you stay in a high-end camping tent. This glamping experience includes heated floors, an outdoor hot tub, extraordinary ocean views, a private bathroom and free Wi-Fi.

For me, living in a safari tent brings up the image of royalty traversing the vast Sahara desert, or a wonderful journey through adventurers across South America.
