Glamping – otherwise known as ‘glamorous camping – has quickly become a popular way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing comfort. Better still, glamping is a perfect way to introduce children to the joys of camping without having to rough it in the wilderness. Our family-friendly safari tents here at Meadow Field Luxury Glamping are perfect for all ages – providing a home from home for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend some quality time together. If you’re planning a glamping trip with your children, here are some tips to ensure your break is the fun and memorable experience you’re after.

Choose the right accommodation

When booking a break with children, it’s more vital than ever that you choose the right accommodation for you and your family. When exploring your options, consider the size and layout of the space to ensure it can accommodate your family comfortably.

Take our spacious luxury safari tents at Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, both of which sleep up to six people. They each come with a fully-equipped kitchen area, as well as two separate bedrooms – the twin bedroom is perfect for when your little ones need to get some much-needed shuteye after a busy day exploring. And if you’re travelling with babies or young toddlers, there’s plenty of room for you to comfortably set up a cot – we have a travel cot you can borrow if necessary. Better still, both tents offer a fairy-lit, magical hideaway, the perfect place for you and your little ones to snuggle up in, as you get lost in a story. You can view our tent floor plan here.

Pack strategically

When preparing for a glamping trip with children, it’s essential that you put some thought into what you pack, to ensure you have everything you need while minimising clutter. Think about packing clothes that are appropriate for all weathers, as well as comfortable shoes for exploring. View our ultimate packing list here.

One thing you shouldn’t forget is a good set of books, games and other activities to ensure your children are well entertained during downtime. Although we do have our own selection here at Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, we appreciate children like to have their favourite games on hand and ready to play.

Embrace the outdoors

The world is your playground – and that’s never been more true than when you’re glamping. Embrace your natural surroundings by heading out on a walk, a hike or a bike ride. And if you fancy something a little more chilled, then why not simply sit outside and enjoy the scenery? Complete with a comfy bench, an on-site firepit and surrounded by plenty of greenery, as well as nearby walks, Meadow Field Luxury Glamping has plenty for all the family to enjoy. 

For those staying here at Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, we have a selection of nature guidebooks and children’s nature activities available for young explorers to enjoy during their stay. 

Plan your mealtimes

While glamping accommodation, just like our safari tents here at Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, comes with kitchen facilities, it’s always a good idea to pre-plan your meals, especially when travelling with children. Before you travel, make sure you check out your accommodation’s FAQ page, so you know any rules surrounding supermarket deliveries and takeaways. If you’re staying at Meadow Field Luxury Glamping, we would advise you to bring all food and drink required. However, there are also plenty of supermarkets and farm shops nearby ready for you to explore if you fancy popping out during your trip.

Why not mix things up at dinner-time by making the most of our on-site pizza oven, which you can hire during your stay?

Make an itinerary

While we’re not suggesting you create an hour-by-hour plan for your trip but we would definitely recommend you create a rough itinerary for your stay. Research the local area and have a peek at what our safari tents offer, to ensure you really make the most out of your up-and-coming break. 

A top tip from us is to have a few backup plans depending on the weather – and make sure you pack enough essentials for both sun and rain.
