A brief history of glamping
Glamping is a relatively new arrival in the UK, and arrived to fill a need for a camping experience that offered a hotel feel. Originally called ‘luxury camping’, it soon became known as glamping - a mixture of ‘glamour’ and ‘camping’. It’s also sometimes called ‘posh camping’ and ‘comfortable camping’, but the idea remains the same… all the fun of camping, without the stress!
UK Glamping quickly became more and more popular, with more kinds of accommodation and holiday springing up all over the country. Including everything from yurts to treehouses, and teepees to shepherd huts, the variety available to campers still continues to grow, nestled in some of the UK’s most spectacular locations. After all, these green and pleasant lands are the perfect place to unplug your phone, sit back in the fresh air and really get back to nature!
