What is Luxury Camping?
Luxury camping is more commonly known as glamping – 'glamorous camping' – and, as the name suggests, is all about following the trends of a traditional camping holiday but with a lot more added comforts. When it comes to luxury camping, you can expect to find most of the hard-work done for you. The faff and the stress of putting up your tent and setting up your sleeping bag is all taken away. Instead, you'll find ready-pitched accommodation, often with the likes of double-beds, wood-burning stoves and basic kitchen facilities. In fact, in many respects, luxury camping is far more like staying in a hotel or self catered accommodation than actually camping. The crucial difference, of course, is that you're still getting to enjoy the great outdoors. So why is luxury camping better than staying in a hotel? Well, you can light a campfire, gaze at the stars, listen to the call of the birds and enjoy the sunrise from the door of your yurt or safari tent. In short, it's the luxury of hotel living with all the best bits of camping. What's not to love?

Bell tents, for example are light and airy, while safari tents, yurts and tipis are similarly cool and also offer extra space for families. In the UK, meanwhile, you'll also find year-round options that can withstand harsher weather. Insulated pods allow people to glamping in the dead of winter, while shepherd's huts are based on a design that is centuries old and is well known to keep you cost whatever the conditions. Similarly gypsy caravans have firm roots in the history of travel and offer a romantic and timeless place to stay.
