Over the last few years, there has been an increase in those looking to stay a little closer to home when they are planning a holiday. You may have seen a lot of buzz around glamping, and this is because this type of holiday lets you explore some beautiful places right on your doorstep.

If you are unfamiliar with glamping, it is camping but with a luxurious twist meaning that you won’t be staying in a shoddy tent, but instead a yurt, eco-pod or even a treehouse. This also means that every time you decide to take a glamping holiday, you will get the opportunity to stay somewhere different. Even though glamping isn’t the first type of holiday that will spring to mind, there are some great reasons why you should look at embarking on one for your next trip away.

Beautiful Locations
When looking to book a holiday, we often head straight to the computer and look at staying somewhere exotic which is usually abroad. However, we often take for granted some stunning locations which can be found dotted throughout the UK.

The wonderful thing with glamping is that the majority of the abodes are situated in the countryside as well as being in a place you have considered going before. There really are some picturesque places throughout the UK which can be just as good as some of the exotic locations throughout the rest of the world. Therefore, by opting for a staycation holiday, you can explore amazing destinations and locations which are right on your doorstep.

Camping can be frustrating as you there is usually so much that you need to pack. However, when opting for a glamping holiday, you won’t need to think about bringing things like a tent or sleeping bag, as the abode you are staying in will have everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Your whole glamping experience will be incredibly relaxing, as most of the time you will be amongst nature, hearing and seeing its sights and sounds. Taking some time away from the business of your everyday lives can do wonders for your mind and mental health and hopefully, make you forget any worries you may have.

Surrounded by Nature
If you live in a busy town or city, you often get so caught up in your normal routine that you forget to enjoy the little things and what is around you. Glamping gives you the opportunity to get a little bit closer to nature, and as said above, this can actually do wonders for your health.

By stepping out of your usual comfort zone, you will be able to immerse yourself in some natural wonders including magnificent coastal scenery, seemingly endless views and waterfalls that become part of your treasured memories from a Wales glamping holiday.

This is one of the most persuasive reasons to choose a glamping holiday, as technology is very intertwined in our lives, and we can often forget what it is like not to have our mobile phone attached to our hand or a laptop by our side. Glamping is a great way to reconnect with nature and get away from modern life for a few days, as being outdoors will give you a sense of freedom which you won’t necessarily find on other holidays!

A Unique Experience 
One of the best aspects of opting for a glamping holiday is that it is a completely unique experience. This is mainly due to some of the incredible abodes you will have the chance to stay in. From yurts, cabins, shepherd’s huts, eco-pods and even treehouses, you will be spoilt for choice. Additionally, due to the uniqueness of the experience, it won’t be easily forgotten. Just imagine yourself waking up on a crisp morning and being surrounded by enchanting woodland, waking up in a beautiful yurt and stepping out of the door to be met with endless views of the countryside or being high up in the treetops; sounds like bliss, right?
