Glamping, Design & Accessories

As more people join our glorious glamping movement, many new glampsites are popping up across the UK. It’s fair to say that some popular structures look much the same from the outside, sometimes they look pretty much the same on the inside, too. And that’s fine, if there is something else about the glampsite that sets it apart from the rest. But what if there isn’t? There are several ways to create a unique glamping offer, one of which is by making clever use of design and accessories, so this blog is about the importance of...

Dragon’s Eye ~ Glamping Cabin

The Dragon’s Eye – from the Horses Mouth ‘Year of Legend’ is the theme for Welsh Tourism’s 2017 marketing campaign, which aims to highlight and celebrate the country’s rich and fascinating heritage. Needless to say, given my interest in history and mythology I got quite excited about this, but actually – it got even better. Some clever people came up with a fantastic initiative to celebrate the year of legend by offering a pop-up, unique glamping experience in specially designed cabins, in outstanding...

Glamping – Passing Trend or Lasting Development?

During an exchange of messages with a LinkedIn contact earlier this year, it was suggested that the glamping market in the UK had reached a plateau and the desire to get out of the country for holidays abroad eroded demand. I very politely, completely disagreed. Check out Barclay’s May 2014 staycation report, or Visit England’s domestic tourism report. More people are staying in the UK for their summer holiday and more are taking short breaks. If they do take a main holiday abroad they have other breaks back at home too. In short...

Back or Forward to, Nature?

Have you noticed the latest ‘trend’ for outdoor activities and environmental engagement? A plethora of back to nature festivals now offer activity packed weekends out in woodlands and wild places, forest schools and bushcraft courses are sprouting up everywhere. Every county seems to have its own local version of ‘Ray Mears’ – one of my all time favourite people, by the way – offering days of stick whittling and shelter building. One of the Festivals I am involved in, ‘The Really Wild...
