What is Glamping?

What Is Glamping?

For those who are not that familiar with camping nor of luxury then be ready to learn a lot on this new word that everyone just seems to be throwing around everywhere. Glamping is a word that came from glamorous and camping. Others like to think of it as camping in style of luxury camping. It is a world where nature meets comfortable camping, or in other words, experiencing wildlife as it is without having to give up certain comforts.

The world has changed a lot in the past decades. Glamping nowadays is all about the experience.  Now, we can have the best of both worlds without having to compromise anything. As this movement grows, different incredible destinations adapt so that people can reside in treehouses, on mountaintops, on an eco-lodge and yet have a decent bedroom and bathroom  




The History of Glamping

Glamping has been around ever since 1520 during the Field of the Cloth of Gold or the diplomatic summit where King Henry VIII of England and King Francis I of France both attended. During this time 2,800 tens were set up in northern France to accommodate guests.

The Ottoman Sultans were known for their lavish tents which were even decorated by famous artworks of artists.

This tradition became popular among the Americans and Europeans who went to safaris in Africa. These wealthy adventurers did not want to sacrifice the comforts of their homes so the safari camps adapted and provided more amenities to their lodging places.


What is inside the accommodation for glamping?

A glamping tent comes with a double bed, complete with mattresses like the ones you normally have in a hotel room. Glamping in Nottingham includes an electric socket for all your charging needs, electric heater, kettle & tea, coffee, milk, sugar, and extra air beds. A maximum of two air beds can be requested as well from the accommodations team. Communal male and female toilets and shower facilities are also accessible from your tent. The shower rooms have easy access for the physically challenged. There is also hot running water for your basic washing needs.




Did you know that in other places glamping is not limited to tents? Other examples of glamping also include safari tents, yurts, cabins, and cottages, tipis, treehouses, cubes and pods, airstreams and trailers, geo domes, and wagons and shepherd’s hut.

Each of these accommodations is equipped with the amenities that your bedroom or a hotel room can provide. They are also weather-proof, aided by electricity, insulation, and heating to offer you the best temperature inside.
