What is Glamping?
So, if you google the word “Glamping” this is what Wikipedia will tell you;
“Glamping is a portmanteau of “glamorous” and “camping“, and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with “traditional” camping.”
Glamping is still relatively new to the hospitality industry and comes in many different forms.
You could choose to stay somewhere that’s completely off grid, isolated with nothing but you and the great outdoors as close to camping as you can get without the hassle of having to bring and put up your own tent. Or the other end of the scale which includes power and a fully functioning bathroom and kitchen but still with canvas over your heads. You could choose to stay in a bell tent, a bubble tent, a yurt, a wigwam, a shepherds hut or even a tree house.
But they all have one thing in common.
It’s all about the experience.
It’s about being closer to nature and the great outdoors. It’s about taking yourself out of the fast paced world we live in. It’s about disconnecting from the technology that seems to rule our lives and reconnecting with those who are important to us, whether that’s family or friends or even just ourselves.
When we get on a plane and listen to the safety announcement we are always told to make sure we put the oxygen mask on ourselves before we try to help others. If you can’t breathe, then how can you focus on your responsibilities.
This is what a glamping holiday gives you:
An opportunity to breathe.
Out with the old air and in with the new.
Here at Meadow Field, we are focused on giving our guests a luxury glamping experience.
One that includes soft, cosy beds for that all important good night’s sleep. A dining table (indoors and out) and sofas so that family and friends can sit together and talk and laugh and learn. A cute cabin bed for snuggling in for story telling and make believe. Access to an amazing outdoor space for exploring, creativity and fun and not forgetting the stargazing.
All you need to bring when you stay at Meadow field are clothes suitable for the weather conditions at the time of your stay, wellies and a willingness to relax. Our luxury safari tents include a bathroom with a toilet, shower and bath. A fully equipped kitchen with a fridge freezer, microwave and a two ringed induction hob. When it comes to the amenities we want it to be a home from home. But if you prefer to cook outdoors then that too is an option for you with access to an outdoor BBQ and fire pit for toasting marshmallows (an absolute must for both glamping and camping!) Or simply walk along to one of our local pubs and let someone else do all the cooking for you.
Glamping is whatever you want it to be, so long as when you return to the real world you feel lighter in mind, body and spirit and ready to tackle anything life has to challenge you.
Just breathe….. xxJulesxx
