Camping Glamour – Don’t Settle For Any Old Tent

Putting up a tent can be a hassle when you’re on a camping holiday and it doesn’t stop there; leaky floors and bug bites are not fun when you’re in the great outdoors.

Now there is a new way to get closer to nature without foregoing any of your usual luxuries – glamping. Glamour camping, often referred to as ‘glamping’, is a different wave of camping. Instead of the traditional tent, the new accommodation ranges from teepees, to tree houses, yurts, safari tents and camping pods.



Teepees (also called Tipis) are based on the Native Indian tribal design and are made from canvas that is thick, durable and waterproof. It is a dome shaped structure with a spacious interior ideal for a glamorous camping trip.

There are many glamour campsites that offer a teepee camping experience, for example: Dorset Country Holidays in England. This site erects the teepee prior to your arrival and in your desired location, whether that’s overlooking their fishing lake or not.

The teepee’s also come fully furnished with all the luxuries of home so you can enjoy the great outdoors with all the comfort of the great indoors!



A yurt is a portable wood framed tent finding its roots in central Asia. They include insulation material that allows you to control the temperature so it’s perfect in every season, and it is also waterproof. This deluxe accommodation can include King sized beds, furniture and many other fixtures and fittings.

If you want to try out a Yurt on holiday why not visit Finca De Arrieta in Lanzarote. The campsites perfect positioning ensures a spectacular view from all angles whether that’s the sparkling ocean or the amazing volcanic rocks.

Staying in a Yurt guarantees a lavish camping trip that you won’t forget!


Safari Tents

A Safari tent is based on the African style accommodation reaching back to the early 1900’s. A large canvas tent with 5 star deluxe amenities is perfect for glamour camping. Some might even say it’s more comfortable than home with its hotel like luxuries.


The Safari tents are one of the most popular accommodation options for glamping, especially in the USA. There is a fabulous safari style campsite based in Yellow Stone, Montana, USA, adjacent to the famous Yellow Stone Country Park. With an onsite restaurant, beautiful scenery and a secluded location, this campsite is relaxing, comfortable and first class.


Camping Pods

Camping Pods are totally wooden structures complete with door and flooring. These cosy mini-lodges offer heating, electricity, and lighting and are a comfortable alternative to the traditional tent.

Cornwall, England, is home to Meadow Lakes Camping Pod site; a picturesque site nestled away in the Cornish countryside. These pods are custom built to enhance your glamorous camping experience. Within this site there is a heated outdoor swimming pool, as well as a private area surrounding your pod including a parking bay and decking.


Why settle for less when you can camp in style? You can arrive at your holiday destination and not have to worry about setting up the tent because it’s already done for you!

Even if you don’t usually enjoy camping, glamorous camping is an excellent balance between getting closer to nature and yet living in luxury.
