Child Friendly Glamping UK: Back to Nature with More Than a Few Creature Comforts!

13 February 2017

Travel Tips

Glamping in the UK has seen a significant rise over the last 5 years. Yes, we may have unpredictable weather but we have an impressive range of beaches, mountains, hills, countryside and little pieces of unheard heaven! All of which, is easy to access and doesn’t cost the earth. However, any mention of the word camping may bring back early memories of trying to find the toilet block in pitch black, cold showers, burnt camp food, all of which seemed exciting as a child but not so much as an adult! The good news is family Glamping doesn’t have to be all of that. In fact, glamping came to be so popular because we wanted to claim back some creature comforts as well as immersing ourselves in nature! So yes, you can have a warm shower, a kitchen to cook in, a real bed and even a hot tub! If you’re not convinced, here are our reasons why we love child friendly glamping in the UK.
