Glampsites in the UK are going the extra mile now more than ever to provide their guests with the ultimate luxury getaway. With hot tubs, log burners, BBQ stations and cosy sleeping quarters, they’re the perfect way to relax. These days, most glamping accomodations come fully equipped with everything a camper could need during their stay.
Packing light is one of the great benefits of glamping as your host will most likely provide the necessities for you, but there will always be a few extra items you can pack to make your trip extra cosy and luxurious! Here’s our list of underrated items to bring on your next glamping holiday:
1. Dressing gown or bath robe
Most glamping accommodations will provide towels for you to use the facilities and any hot tubs on site. However, a dressing gown be used to slip on when hopping in and out of hot tubs, walking to the shower facilities or just lounging about your accommodation.
2. Fairy lights
Campfires are the perfect way to create a cosy and comforting atmosphere. However, not all glampsites allow for them, so you may need to think of other ways to make your setup relaxing. Battery powered fairy lights are an easy quick-fix for providing mood lighting!
3. Picnic basket
Perfect to bring along whilst exploring the local area, woodlands and nature walks!
4. Portable Speaker
Listening to the sounds of nature can be the perfect way to relax when glamping, but sometimes a little music can switch up the atmosphere – especially if you’re glamping with friends!
You’ll need to check with your host if bedding is provided at your accomodation – these days, it usually is! However, there’s no harm in brining along some extra blankets or fleeces to keep warm during the evenings. Extra blankets are also useful should you decide to go on a picnic.
The ultimate goal when going glamping is to unwind, relax and enjoy your surroundings. But there’s no harm in bringing long any of these extra suggestions just to make your experience as comforting as possible!
