A lot of us are inherently fond of the outdoors, and this isn’t such a surprise. What could be better than spending time in nature and relishing the fresh air, the closeness of the trees, the sound of birdsong, and the beautiful views? When we spend time in the middle of nature, we can automatically rejuvenate our senses, and if we are feeling extra stressed, this is a tremendous benefit indeed. Of course, spending time in nature often entails being physically active as well, whether you go biking, hiking, swimming, trekking, or kayaking. If you would like to spend time outdoors but are hesitant about going camping, we have just the solution for you: glamping. Glamping is a combination of the terms ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’ and it certainly lives up to its name. But why else should you camp when you can glamp? Here’s a look at the real benefits of going glamping over camping.
What it really is
Simply put, glamping is camping done in style. With glamping, you can have luxurious accommodation combined with modern amenities and facilities such as private bathrooms and showers (and even Jacuzzi tubs), electricity and lighting, fully-equipped kitchens, proper beds and bed linen, and WiFi as well as wide-screen televisions and the like. Glamping is quite similar to camping in that you can still experience the beauty of nature at close proximity, but you don’t have to deal with the discomfort. Everything is accessible, and you don’t have to make too much effort trying to make your site reasonably comfortable.
The real benefits
- A home away from home – and then some
Most accommodation for glamping can provide you with real comfort – almost like you are at home. Some accommodation can even give you more than what you have at home, such as the aforementioned Jacuzzi tub and other luxurious amenities. If you stay in a glamping cabin, for example, you can have separate bedrooms and amenities such as cosy bed linen and towels, a kitchen, appliances, separate bathrooms, and more. Some glamping accommodation even comes with its own private chef and concierge. What’s more, you will probably still pay less than you would at a standard 5-star hotel.
- A range of accommodation
Glamping isn’t just about staying in cabins or cottages, however. You can now choose from a broad selection of glamping accommodation that includes everything from tipis to yurts to tree houses and luxurious tents, as confirmed by glamping and safari tent specialists like www.bondfabrications.co.uk. These structures can be quite impressive, and you can even have them customised according to your liking and whatever amenities or features you want.
- A way to spend time outdoors without the hassle
Everyone knows that camping can be quite tough, especially if you’re doing it for the first time. Camping involves a range of activities and tasks such as setting up tents, building a fire, setting up sleeping bags (and hoping no bugs get in) and so on. And while camping will always have its charm for many of us, glamping is a way for you to spend time outdoors without all the hassle. With glamping, you can simply pack your personal belongings (without all that camping gear) and go off to your chosen location or spot.
