Summer Holiday Glamping Escapes with Glampingly
With summer upon us why not make the most of the sunshine and enjoy a glamping break in the great outdoors? To help the search, Glampingly has compiled a selection of sites still with availability over the popular summer holiday period. From brand new safari tents in rural Scotland and plush shepherd’s huts in the grounds of a Lancashire estate, to futuristic geo-domes and eco-friendly yurts in Wales, there’s something to suit all the family.
Stylish Safari Tents with Rural Roll Top Baths – Dam View, Scotland
These new safari-inspired lodges are located on a secluded 100-acre grassland overlooking a nature reserve in central Scotland, perfect for the eagle-eyed wildlife watcher or simply those that want to escape everyday life. The collection of three safari tents sleep up to six each and are kitted out with everything you might need on a family holiday: from cooking utensils and cool boxes to towels, toiletries, tea and coffee and even a roll top bath. There’s also a cosy wood-burner and an outdoor BBQ fire pit for marshmallow toasting. As well as walks and cycle trails nearby, there’s plenty of entertainment for little ones, too, including petting the farms’ chicks, ducks and turkeys. The site still has plenty of availability throughout July and August. For example: three nights from August 3-6 are available from £590 based on a family of four sharing a Safari Tent Lodge on a self-catering basis.
Eco-Friendly Yurts and Treetop Cabins – Redwood Valley, Powys, Wales
Situated right on the Welsh borders and surrounded by 25 acres of woodland, Redwood Valley is the perfect spot for eco-friendly campers that seek a little luxury. Boasting just one yurt and one treetop cabin, families can roam free without disturbing anyone; playing games on the nearby fields, hiking to nearby waterfalls or simply relaxing and toasting marshmallows over a fire pit. Come evening families can sleep comfortably in king-sized beds, whilst a cosy log-burning stove keeps them warm – there’s even a duo of wind-up lanterns should you need to venture out to the compostable bathroom in the night. There are plenty of local attractions nearby too, including Ludlow Castle, Farm Park and Owl Sanctuary and the town of Presteigne, which offers four family friendly pubs if you don’t fancy cooking. The site still has plenty of availability throughout July and August. For example; three nights from August 10-13 are available from £390 (Yurt) or £450 (Treetop Cabin) based on a family of five sharing on a self-catering basis.
Futuristic Geo Domes, Fun Activities and Feeding Chickens – Dome Garden, Gloucestershire, UK
Located in rural Gloucestershire, this collection of futuristic family-friendly geo-domes sleep up to six and boast ultra-comfy beds, wood-burners, food safes and luxury en-suite wet rooms with clean warm showers. Each dome has its own chiminea and stick stove for outdoor cooking, and at night the huge communal firepit provides a great focal point. Little ones will love building dens, playing in the treehouse and swinging on rope swings before feeding the chickens and exploring the Forest of Dean: just beyond the site through a little gate. Should families want to explore, a 12 mile circular cycle trail runs past the garden gate and the Forestry Commission’s Beechenhurst Lodge (just five minutes away) has an outdoor playground and is the starting point for the free Sculpture Trail. The site still has plenty of availability throughout July and August. For example: three nights from July 27-30 are available from £573 based on a family of four sharing a Sky Dome on a self-catering basis.
Set in the historic grounds of Samlesbury Hall sits a gathering of colourful shepherd’s huts, offering an unusual base from which to explore rural Lancashire. The collection of three huts each sleep four in double bunk beds with plush memory foam mattresses and are hand crafted to keep families toasty in the winter and cool in the summer. As well as being equipped with electricity and WiFi, the huts all boast en-suite shower rooms with luxury toiletries. If you’re looking to explore, there’s a hidden adventure trail and Mayflower playground in the grounds of the Hall, as well as a mini golf course by the hamlet entrance. What’s more, the hall is free to visit (don’t miss the sweet treats in Dottie’s Wafflery) and the award-winning restaurant is open for lunches. The site still has plenty of availability throughout July and August. For example; three nights from August 6-9 are available from £390 based on a family of four sharing a Shepherds Hut on a self-catering basis.
Couples’ Camping and a Taste of 1950’s Americana – Tin Can Camping, Norfolk, UK
Tucked away in a woodland on the Norfolk/Suffolk boarder is Tin Can Camping, boasting an unusual duo of American trailers: one Airstream and one Jewel. Both sleep two comfortably with DAB radios and fun themed bedding and have sole use of the Camp HQ with double walk-in rain shower, modern kitchen and pool table. Make the most of the outside space in summer with BBQs in the sun and boats for hire in the nearby Norfolk Broads or take a stroll around the beautiful market town of Loddon. The coast is also only 40 minutes’ drive away. The site still has plenty of availability throughout July and August. For example; three nights from August 2-5 are available from £240 (1956 Airstream Bubble) or from £255 (1957 Jewel) based on two sharing on a self-catering basis.
