Couples, families, groups of friends and even solo travellers are now opting for glamping holidays; providing the perfect staycation option to explore the UK. There are so many different types of glamping accommodations out there – from tipis to tree houses, and everything in between. So, if you’re thinking of whisking your family, friends or loved ones away for an unforgettable glamping experience, check out our guide below to find the glamping accommodation that is right for you…

Beautiful Bell Tents

Bell tents are ideal for festivalgoers and are a firm favourite in the glamping world. They are the closest in form to traditional camping, yet much more luxurious. Often strung with fairy lights and bunting and decked out with rustic furnishings and a traditional wood burner.

Ideal for: families who want a camping-esque experience, without the hassle of erecting their own tents!

Gorgeous Geo-Domes

These futuristic tents with dome-shaped constructions often feature stunning designs and high tech-fabrics, to fend off the unpredictable British weather. Some have a clear roof, allowing for ample star gazing opportunity. Domes certainly offer a chance to immerse yourself in nature, with minimal impact on the environment.

Ideal for: avid stargazers or those looking for something more unusual.

Picturesque Pods

Glamping pods are perfect for stylish glampers who don’t wish to sacrifice any home comforts. These insulated wooden shelters protect you from the elements, retaining a cosy and homely feel. On the lower end, pods will feature comfortable beds, furniture, and wood burners; on the high end, you may also find lavish kitchens, bathrooms, and even underfloor heating!

Ideal for: couples & families wanting a countryside retreat, without foregoing home comforts.

Vintage Caravans & Airstreams

Gypsy caravans and vintage airstreams are ideal for keen travellers. Swap your brick walls for a traditional gypsy wagon or vintage airstream in the wild – some are rustic and basic, whilst others are luxurious and exquisite. They combine retro styles with all the mod cons you could possibly need, such as fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms.

Ideal for: couples seeking to step back into another era and cosy up together.

Stunning Safari Tents

Inspired by African safari experiences, safari tents are best for large groups. They boast the most space out of all the accommodation options, with their large rectangular interiors separated into several rooms using partitions or curtains. This allows them to house several beds, large living areas and wide verandas – providing a home away from home experience.

Ideal for: larger groups who don’t mind cosying up to a fire for warmth.

Stylish Shepherd’s Huts

Shepherd’s huts provide the perfect base for a romantic retreat. They positively ooze quirky character and country charm. Their petite size often means bathrooms and kitchen areas are outdoors or in an additional building, so showering and cooking may be a truly wild experience!

Ideal for: couples who enjoy walking on the wild side!

Thrilling Tree Houses

Tree houses provide a fun woodland experience, allowing you to climb trees and sleep in the wild – the stuff of childhood dreams! Tree houses come in all shapes and sizes and are one of the most popular types of glamping accommodation. Climb the ladder to discover your glamping domain and admire spectacular bird’s eye views across the surrounding woodland.

Ideal for: couples or families with a more expansive budget that want to experience glamping at its most luxurious.

Yearning for Yurts

Yurts provide the most authentic back-to-nature breaks. The circular wooden base boasts a spacious living area, usually coupled with a log burner. Often furnished to a very high standard, traditional Mongolian yurts contain indoor cooking facilities and skylights, allowing you to snuggle down and stargaze in style.

Ideal for: families who want a more comfortable experience than camping.
