5 reasons to get glamping
If you fancy glamping with a little luxury, then Melody Farm’s perfect. With an indoor swimming pool, a gym and tennis courts, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy when you’re not cosied up in this gorgeous hut for two.
With a rustic charm to whisk you a world away from the daily grind, this family yurt’s all about switching off your mobiles and spending time together. And when you step outside you’ll find a hot tub, pools and a games room to keep everyone entertained.
How gorgeous is this woodland pod in Cornwall’s countryside? Set on the Trecombe Lakes resort, this sustainable wooden pod sleeps four, and it’s got everything you need for that relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle.
With a bubbling hot tub just outside, this one’s especially for those romantic breaks for two. There’s a window in the roof so you can watch the stars as you fall asleep, a table and chairs outside for those al fresco dinners, and a king size bed to welcome you…bliss.
We don’t think you’ve really experienced glamping until you’ve slept in a real American airstream, and would you look at Route 66…this retro silver bullet airstream’s the kind of home from home that’ll have the kids sending photos to their friends.
