Why glamping is the perfect holiday option for Spring

Love the idea of getting back to nature? But…finding it tough to let go of all those mod cons we take for granted every day? Glamping’s your answer – the perfect combination of fresh air, nature, and the sweet creature comforts of home.

If you’ve never been glamping before, there’s never been a better time to get out there. With Spring right around the corner, the buds are out in bloom and we’re looking at milder weather, amazing foliage, and some beautiful walks in the British countryside. Forget packing, flight insurance, and exhausting trips overseas, here are all the top reasons to get out there and give glamping pods a go!

Privacy, Out of Doors..

Now there are two concepts you never thought would gel – but that’s exactly what you can expect from a glamping holiday. A glamping pod is your personal outdoor haven, set in their own private slice of nature and with external decking areas that are perfect for barbeques or a nightcap in the evening. If your everyday commute involves a jam-packed train or a tiresome commute in traffic, even an intimate, romantic glamping pod like the Harripod Aries is a breath of fresh air.

Family Time..

Nothing beats a break from the hustle and bustle like some quality family time. Between work, after school classes, and packed weekends, it’s not often that we get some downtime with our loved ones. But we understand – camping can seem like it’s more stress than it’s worth, and it’s not unusual to come back from a week in a tent feeling more stressed than when you left. Glamping offers a perfect upgrade to the usual camping experience, and it’s come a long way since it’s early days. Now with pods like the Harripod Gemini offering separate rooms, dining spaces, and DVD players for movie night, it’s possible to get away for some time together.


Let’s face it, our British winters are dismal. The short days, cold nights, and blustery wind leave you starved for some fresh air, and being indoors over the holiday season can be exhausting! Glamping gives you a welcome chance to recharge and reboot, as well as a whole host of beautiful locations in which to get active. Whether it’s a light hike in the morning, a day’s walk through the forest, or a run among the trees, there are more than a few ways to get your daily dose of exercise when you’re glamping. Forget the pollution of the city and ditch the gym for a while – head back to nature!


Springtime’s the perfect time for a little indulgence, and what better way to pamper yourself than unwinding in your own private cabin? A light walk through the woods, running through the leaves or rolling around on the floor with laughter, on a glamping adventure there are so many opportunities for your body to benefit from exercise, and some of them are so enjoyable that you probably won’t even notice you’ve completed your 30 minutes a day! Glamping hives offer a fun spring getaway that’s taken up a few notches – with designer interiors, mod cons, and all the facilities of a fully equipped holiday park, you’ll forget the stress of the city in no time. Think kid’s adventure areas, on-site grills and restaurants, and even swimming pools – all at a fraction of the cost of an overseas trip.

Making Memories..

If you’ve never been glamping before, what better time than springtime to try something new? Nothing beats a new and exciting experience with friends or family, and glamping’s packed with picture-perfect opportunities to create lasting memories. Heading out for a hike? Toasting marshmallows after dinner? Or visiting attractions in the countryside? Whatever you feel like doing, you’ll be doing it in style when you’re glamping. So don’t be shy, take some selfies of those memorable moments, and you’ll be able to remember them fondly in years to come.

Finally, it’s time to wave goodbye to winter, and say hello to some much nicer weather! What do you like best about glamping? Have you tried it before? Let us know what you loved about it, and share your springtime plans with us!
