The Glamping Experience
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, it’s unlikely you could have failed to have heard about glamping. But while you might be familiar with the term, you might not be quite sure what glamping entails. Simply put, it’s camping, but with all the luxuries and mod cons of home. Whereas traditional camping is all about stripping back supplies and comforts to the bare minimum, glamping enthusiasts take a more decadent approach. Think sumptuous throws, soft cushions, fairy lights and pretty bunting rather than hard floors, basic tents and hand-me-down sleeping bags.
As glamping has become increasingly popular, more and more people have started to ramp up their camping experiences to add luxurious touches. Glamping isn’t just restricted to tent camping – caravans, motorhomes and beach huts all over the country have been given glamping makeovers. If nights under canvas aren’t your thing, a caravan or motorhome might be more suitable. You’ll still be able to enjoy the great outdoors and take part in the glamping experience, but with even more comfort and luxury.
Glamping Caravan Holidays
If you own, or are thinking of buying, a caravan, it’s easy to give it a glamping makeover. If you’re renting a caravan, there are plenty of already spruced-up options to choose from – many owners have tapped into the glamping trend by creating picture-perfect caravans in photogenic settings. Even if you’re renting a more basic caravan, it’s easy to add your own touch of glamping luxury for your stay. Try solar-powered fairy lights and outdoor tealight holders to create a pretty and cosy atmosphere for al fresco evenings.
Motorhome GlampingThe growth in glamping has led to a whole new generation of British holidaymakers looking to buy motorhomes, as many campsites offer motorhome pitches with all amenities at close hand. The main advantage of a motorhome holiday is, of course, that you can pile it high with all your luxury supplies and home comforts before you leave your driveway, and that it offers a very affordable way of holidaying time and time again. The number of motorhomes for sale in Hampshire and other parts of the UK at extremely reasonable prices demonstrates what a great investment a motorhome can be. Once you’ve chosen from the motorhomes for sale and found your dream match, you can simply pack up a few supplies and head off for a few nights away whenever the mood strikes.
Choose lots of soft throws, pretty cushions and decorative touches to add colour and comfort to your motorhome’s interior and make it a welcoming and cosy space even when it’s raining. You can spruce up the outside of your motorhome once you arrive at your destination. Affordable and easy ways to do this include stringing some bunting and solar-powered fairy lights around your motorhome. These are available in hundreds of different designs and colours and generally light up automatically at dusk. Ensure your accessories and kitchenware are fit for glamping too – melamine cups and plates are available in a huge variety of pretty colours and designs and are perfect for glamping. Lightweight, affordable and stylish, they are ideal for outdoor use.
