Peace, tranquility and the great outdoors – all enjoyed from the sumptuous luxury of an idyllic glamping sanctuary.

Luxury camping is the next big thing – and it’s taking the campsite – and back garden – by storm!

In 2020, Google searches for ‘glamping’ in the UK were up 404.17%, while searches for ‘staycation’ were up 511.11% (1).  It’s easy to understand why. Glamping lets campers escape from the hustle and bustle, and reconnect with nature in style. Whether exploring the local sights or lazing in the garden, it’s a chance to truly relax in a little slice of camping heaven. Think soft, cosy furnishings, the comfiest camping beds and invigorating fresh air to awaken the soul. Add in a backdrop of atmospheric lighting and a melody of birdsong, and voila! It’s the perfect antidote to modern life.

As more and more people embrace the world of glamping, savvy campers are discovering the benefits of investing in their own luxury camping equipment. This lets them create their own glamping experiences over and over again - in the countryside, by the sea, in a forest, and in their garden. Saving them money in the long run.

It’s a great choice for those who like to plan for holiday happiness both now and in the future. As well as for eco conscious travellers who prefer to holiday in their own country. According to recent surveys in Denmark and Germany, these are important factors when choosing a holiday (2). A survey from Denmark shows 16% of participants want to spend more vacations in their home country, 8% want to fly less and 6% want more climate friendly holidays (3). While domestic holidays are the most popular vacation choice for German campers (4).

So, what do campers need to create their own glamping haven? A few well-chosen pieces can make all the difference.

First, set the scene with a unique, standout tent that offers space, style and substance. Like the award-winning Chinook Ursa tent from Robens. This big, beautiful tipi-style tent is made for glamping. There’s oodles of space for sleeping, relaxing, dining and playing. Easy-to-pitch thanks to its distinctive central pole, the Chinook Ursa is made from highly breathable HydroTex® Polycotton fabric, keeping campers fresh and comfortable in all weathers. Or, for those who prefer an inflatable option, the Robens Aero Yurt inflates in seconds to create a roomy, light and airy space for the couples, friends or families.

Next, it’s time to accessorise. Glamping is all about creating ambience, and both the Chinook Ursa and Aero Yurt provide the perfect backdrops for stamping on style.

Go wild with soft, fluffy faux-fur throws and sumptuous pillows. Create cosy cocoons with chairs everyone will want to curl up in. Drift off on thick, comfy mats or camping beds, enveloped in the softest of sleeping bags. And don’t forget to add rugs and carpets for toasty toes. Then brighten up the place with twinkly stings of light, colourful lanterns and fresh flowers picked from outside the tent door. 

The result? A gorgeous, luxurious and inviting space where friends and family can get away from it all, whenever they want.
