GLAMPSITES.COM

Glampsites.com is a great resource for holidaymakers which helps making the hunt for a glamping break a really enjoyable and easy process.

The word Glamping is a hybrid of Glamourous Camping, and there are quite a few different types of accommodation which come under that heading, and they are all separated by type on the Glampsites.com website. We take a quick tour of some of the options, with their assistance, to help you narrow down the field.

Camping in a GLAMPING POD is a cheap glamping break option which offers the glamping experience without the luxury price.

SAFARI TENTS offer the out-of-Africa glamping experience for the ultimate glamping break, and includes canvas ‘lodges’ and other options offering a great level of luxury.

Mongolian YURTS can offer spacious accommodation to sleep multiple people, often with warmth from a wood burning stove inside. They are suitable for all-weathers and are often lavishly furnished!

BELL TENTS are probably the closest to traditional camping, offering a single large space for families, couples or friends. A great budget option to connect with nature but with a bit of space too.

SHEPHERDS HUTS are often very luxurious and cosy inside, with good built-in facilities. They’re great for snuggling up in a charming atmosphere, and are often tucked away in quiet places. Not just for couples, there are options which sleep a family.

TIPIS or TEEPEES as they are also known as, offer a pre-pitched stress free camping experience which can be great fun. Imaginations can go wild and kids often love the American Indian vibe, and it won’t cost you a fortune either!

TREE HOUSE GLAMPING takes your break to the next level for a magical night amongst the trees. This is luxury camping at it’s best, and one of the most sought after options so you need to book early!

GEODOMES are relatively new, and offer panoramic views from spacious accommodation . Facilities inside vary, and can include en-suite bathrooms, a kitchenette and or even a hot-tub!

WHY NOT START YOUR GLAMPING JOURNEY NOW?

WIGWAM®

Think ‘wigwam’ and a triangle-shaped tent may spring to mind, yet the term refers to a domed dwelling – a term used by several Native Indian tribes – while some tribes from the North East states referred to a wigwam as a home.

Inspired by this idea, Wigwam Holidays® director Charles Gulland thought about using sustainable timber to create comfy camping cabins, allowing for great holidays in the great outdoors.

The Wigwam® cabin was born and the first site to welcome paying customers was Strathfillan, Scotland, in 1994.

Fast-forward over two decades, and Wigwams® now come in four models, from a Wee Brave to a Running Water Deluxe, sleeping between three and five people with a multi-generational, outdoors appeal.

Over 70 sites nationwide feature Wigwams® dwellings, from the Isle of Skye to the Cornish Coast. For use at any time of year All Wigwams® are fully insulated for year-round occupancy, with heating, lighting, mattresses, storage, along with double glazed windows and lockable doors as standard.

The smallest model, the Wee Brave, sleeps three persons, while the top-of-the-range Running Water Deluxe (we love these names!) includes a double bed, en-suite shower and toilet, a kitchenette and dining area, suitable for four guests.

Wigwams® fit the bill perfectly for those with a sense of adventure, as many sites are close to activity centres of national repute.

Adrenaline-filled pursuits could include mountain biking, white water rafting, high diving, bat watches, star-gazing (including rare glimpses of the Northern Lights), vineyard visits and access to Olympic-standard cycle tracks!

Alternatively, you could consider trout fishing, climbing the Cumbrian Mountains or walking one of the UK’s National Trails.

Many Wigwam sites are open all year round. Active breaks can be enjoyed whether it’s sunny or snowing, with many sites welcoming dogs too.

Mr Gulland said: ‘It’s hard to believe that it’s over two decades since the Wigwam brand was born. Wigwams helped launch the glamping revolution, proving you can afford a relaxing holiday in natural surroundings. It’s a chance to get close to nature comfort.’
