Are you unfamiliar with the amazing experience luxury glamping can offer?
Do you ever wonder what the fuss is all about and why you should invest in a glamping experience?
Read on to learn more.
What is glamping?
Glamping is a combination of the words “glamorous” and “camping“. It’s a style of camping with amenities and services not usually associated with “traditional” camping and can come in many different forms. You could choose to stay somewhere that’s completely off grid, isolated with nothing but you and the great outdoors. It’s as close to camping as you can get without the hassle of having to bring and put up your own tent.
Or you can choose the other end of the glamping scale, like our offering, and opt for an experience which includes power and a fully functioning bathroom and kitchen but still have canvas over your heads.
There are bell tents, bubble tents, yurts, wigwams, pods, safari tents (like ours), shepherds huts and even tree houses.
What do I take on a glamping holiday?
That will depend entirely on the type of glamping experience you choose. It’s always best to check with your accommodation provider, perhaps visit their FAQ page on their website. But if you are staying somewhere like Meadow Field, all you need to bring 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 and shower; 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 at almost all glamping sites. Most offer outdoor cooking facilities such as a BBQ or perhaps even a pizza oven. And of course a fire pit for toasting marshmallows, an absolute must for both glamping and camping! Alternatively walk along to one of our local pubs and let someone else do all the cooking for you.
More than ever before, technology is playing a central role in our lives. Whilst it is hard to not utilise these digital tools in the fast paced world we live in, it is important to take time out from them. Our mental health, well being and physical relationships with family and friends is where we want to invest our down time now. Disconnecting from digital distractions and reconnecting with those who are important to us; family, friends and ourselves.
“Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity”
Regardless of the type of glamping experience you choose, off grid, luxury, rural or coastal, with family, friends or perhaps even just yourself, they all have one thing in common…
Here at Meadow Field, we are focused on giving our guests a luxury glamping experience. Most luxury offerings include; soft, cosy beds for that all important good night’s sleep; private bathrooms and kitchen space; dining area (indoors and out); 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. Something we all have in common though is access to amazing outdoor spaces. Stunning countryside just waiting to be explored; wide open spaces for fun and games; fire pits for sitting round, watching the sun set, the moon rise and those twinkly stars slowly appear. Can you picture yourself there?
If you want to be closer to nature, take an opportunity to disconnect from technology and be 100% present with loved ones, then absolutely invest in a glamping experience.
