Quick guide to Glamping for Hen Parties
Camping is one of the nation’s favourite past times with millions embracing the great outdoors each year. But for a fair few of us, the idea of camping and spending a few days away from home without any creature comforts and sleeping on an uncomfortable blow up bed, doesn’t seem that appealing.
However, with the rising cost of holidays abroad and thanks to programmes such as TOWIE and seeing how celebrities glamp it up during the festival weekends, the revolution and popularity of Glamping has soared.
Rather than staying in a soggy, small and damp tent, Glamping accommodation options include tipis, spacious yurts, airstreamers and glamourous bell tents where you can sleep on real beds or futons with actual bed linen, furnished with fitted carpets and an electric point for your ipod dock and straighteners. Some sites even have hot tubs outside your tent! And what is even more appealing is the price as you are dividing the cost of that accommodation by how many people can sleep inside, which can be up to 8 in some cases. This can prove very cost effective for groups on a budget whilst also providing a posh getaway alternative.
Glamping is the glamorous and luxurious form of camping that will rid you of any soggy sleeping bag nightmares. You have all the freedom of the great outdoors that is the beauty of camping, with some home comforts that allow you to have a relaxing and comfortable weekend.
With fire pits and BBQ’s outside your tent at night, and the stars above you, you’ll wonder why you never did it before!
Useful things to know:
Glampsites are in rural places, so if going out in the evening, work out the distance from the site to the city before you book, so you can work out taxi fares etc
Nearly all glampsites will have a noise policy and ask you keep it down after 10.30 – 11.00pm. If you group is quite a loud and lively bunch, this may not be the option for you, although in some places you can book the whole site for a weekend. This is more cost effective for large groups.
Some are not hen, stag or young group friendly so check the terms and conditions before you book (all our advertised sites are fine for Hens by the way).
Check what you need to take. Bed linen is often provided, but as with camping, you’ll still need to pack a fair few things, so check what they’ve got and what you need to bring.
