OK, I haven’t gone completely mad, but I have just written an article for Female First about different ways you can prepare for winter glamping. Trust me on this one, it’s a real melatonin booster.
The article follows on from a piece I wrote about Things To Do by the Sea in the Winter. The bottom line is, get yourself outdoors, avoid complete hibernation this season and embrace the season, but go prepared. From my experience, it’s much better for your wellbeing and gives you the chance to stay active and enjoy the countryside in the winter – there’s more to see and do than you might think.
Whether you’re a bell tent or yurt kind of person, or you’re big into all-weather camper-vanning, winter glamping is a great way to boost your wellbeing. But for those of us who appreciate a spot of luxury, you may like the idea of a shepherd’s hut or a cabin in the forest with a wood burner. Either way, these days it’s possible to find all the mod-cons you need for a spot of winter glamping in the picturesque British countryside.
Winter glamping inspo
If you don’t fancy glamping in a bell tent, then consider a stay in a yurt, which more often than not will have its own log burner. Some shepherd huts also have a wood burner or an electric heater.
A few years ago when I was pregnant, on Instagram I spotted this magical glamping spot called Happy Valley Norfolk. It’s a pretty special place and we’re hoping to stay here ourselves this February.
It’s literally the ultimate glamping style experience but with all the mod-cons – and don’t worry, not a tent in sight this time of year – just shepherds huts and snug log cabins. The centrepiece of the property is Toad Hall, is a beautiful woodland lodge tree house with under floor heating, a hot tub and glass fronted open gable where you can soak up the views. Boutique glamping is an understatement. Now that’s the way to do it! From £139 a night for two people.
