Glamping holidays are undeniably different from any other kind. From treehouses and cabins to yurts, huts and boats, each location is a far cry from the last. Each place promising the happy screech of kids running around the picnic table, the heart stopping second you let go of a river swing, or the late-night murmur and clink of bottles round the fire.

What is glamping? Literally, "glamorous camping". Glamping is about being able to experience nature without having to pack all your camping gear. Amazing places to stay in the UK and Europe, such as treehouses, cabins and yurts with great beds and creature comforts, so you're surrounded by nature and don't have to try and fit a hot tub in a rucksack.
Why go glamping? There are plenty of reasons why you should go glamping in the UK and Europe. Not only do you get the basics of camping, but also the added luxuries that come with glamping. And there's all these too:
What to bring glamping What you need to bring will vary depending on which you're visiting. Always read the Essentials section for the place you're going to and get in touch with our Guest Experience Team if anything is unclear. You will only need to bring bedding in very few cases. It can be a good idea to stock up on food before you arrive, because some places have no shops nearby. We also recommend bringing:
Where can I go glamping? Glamping is everywhere! We have unique glamping spaces all across the UK and Europe. From triangular pods in the depths of Cornwall to mirror cubes in the forests of Sweden, you will always find somewhere to glamp.
What is glamping accommodation? Glamping accommodation is the best of camping and the best of hotels mashed together. Every space combines the outdoor adventure of camping with some creature comforts. Some are bit more rustic, with just wood-burners for heat and campfires for cooking, some have roll top baths and induction hobs, but let the outdoors in through rolled-back canvas walls.
Can you go glamping in winter? Yes. Glamping in the UK during Winter is all about sitting by crackling campfires and wood burners, wrapped in blankets, or making a shrieking dash from the hot tub back into the warmth. Many places (especially the canvas ones) do close during Winter, when owners take time for maintenance or making exciting site changes, but the ones that are open are lovely.
Is glamping suitable for young children? Definitely! In fact, it's beyond suitable, it's perfect. Yes, there are places across the UK and Europe where you'll need to be careful of a pond, or uneven ground, but we can help you choose a place where the kids can meet the animals, build dens and learn to love the outdoors.
