If you're thinking about reducing your carbon footprint on your next holiday, you might be wondering just what your options are. One avenue you should explore is glamping – or glamorous camping!
This type of holiday can be just as eco-friendly as standard camping, but you'll get to do it in a little more luxury, which is sure to appeal to anyone not keen on sleeping in a normal tent.
If this sounds like your sort of thing, take a look at the glamping accommodation on offer at Quality Unearthed. Whether you fancy staying in a treehouse, off-grid home, yurt, eco lodge or something else entirely, we'll have the perfect thing for you.
A guide to glamping
Glamping can offer a great compromise if some members of your travelling party want to convene with nature from a campsite, but others would like a more upmarket break. So, glamping could be ideal for pretty much any time of holiday, whether it's a romantic escape for two, a group outing with some friends or a family weekend away.
You can choose from a wide range of sustainable glamping accommodation, from vintage caravans, tipis, country cottages and log cabins to eco pods and even shepherd's huts! With so much choice, there's bound to be the perfect lodgings for you and your party. The best glamping breaks take place in true countryside, meaning locations such as Wales, the Isle of Wight and Shropshire can be ideal.
You'll typically be charged per night, with the amount payable varying depending on how many people will be staying in the accommodation. The price will include full use of the facilities in the place you're staying at, which can be pretty luxurious, so bear this in mind when comparing costs.
Having said that, don't assume you won't need the camping basics for a full-on glamping holiday. It's worth checking whether you'll have to bring items like towels and toiletries before you set off, and consider looking into where you can buy food from near your accommodation – if there isn't anywhere close by, think about bringing your own.
Much of the glamping accommodation on offer is owned by local residents, so you might be able to speak to them directly about the facilities and local attractions once you've made your booking. Failing that, the company you reserved your accommodation through should be on hand to answer any questions you might have.
All that remains is to enjoy your glamping experience! You might love it so much that you'll want to do it again, perhaps in another part of the UK and in a different type of accommodation.
