If you are taking your fire bowl or plan to have an open fire a really good idea is to take a few sacks of logs with you and a bag of dry kindling sticks. Hey and why not some fire lighters.You might think wood can be found anywhere this isn’t always the case nice […]
I’ve always loved the idea of Power directly from the sun. I’ve had a few small set ups over the years and have started to gain good appreciation just how much energy can be captured from the sun and what uses you can put it to. I always think it’s a bit magical that you […]
Bedding and a good night’s sleep is what often puts off the non-camper. My advice is to do it properly. Be comfortable warm and cosy. I now use a double height double inflatable bed. Mine has an electric pump that I can use from a simple inverter plugged into my 12 Volt car socket, or […]
I have a bunch of favourite campsites some of which in high season can get pretty full at the weekend. My biggest tip is to take a couple of days off and leave early on Thursday. This way there will generally be plenty of spaces. You can take your pick with the best view for […]

Do what? I thought this was a glamping blog. It is 🙂 … but I’ve just got a few words on hats. When you go on a glamping holiday you are outside most of the time unlike normal everyday life. Make sure you’re protected. Part of your glamping gear should be a nice hat. I […]
Placing your bell Tent Stove Big question. Where to put it? People often want to put their stove over to one side with space in mind. It’s important to really give this some thought before taking the plunge and sitting the hole in your canvas. I let mine stand in the tent for a week […]
Do you have a bell tent 4m + but haven’t got around to fitting a wood burning stove? You are missing out. Adding my Frontier Stove has transformed my glamping experience. When it gets a bit cold and chilly outside there’s nothing like stepping into a cosy warm tent. On a windy night it allows […]
I’ve been attending this show for a few years now. It’s really cool. Half outdoors and half indoors so much to see and so many ideas to come away with. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time of look around and chat with the exhibitors. Organisers of the Glamping Show have confirmed that preparations […]

Flooring is not boring. I recently found a nice thick felt carpet in a charity warehouse. ‘That will go great in the bell tent’ I thought, luxurious to step out of bed onto. Big mistake. The day I put it in was the first day my new canvas tent up in the garden had experienced […]
OK if the weather forecast is saying torrential rain throughout the period you were hoping to go away then maybe not such a great idea. However a mixed forecast , I say go anyway. Just be prepared. Make sure you take the right kit for in tent cooking, and perhaps if the weather isn’t set […]

If you are thinking about adding a pool to your accommodation offering, one of these is definitely worth looking into. No chemicals, the pool is naturally cleaned with the use of planting. In the summer I swam in a pool like this and the lack of chlorine is notable. It’s quite a different and preferable […]
I just love these retro leisure ideas. This one a 1960’s detachable side car boat. So stylish. Surely there’s a market for reproductions of classics like this.
Had a good chat with these guys at the NEC show. Glamping solutions for festivals, weddings and events. They provide really nice pre-erected bell tent accommodation and other facilities like onsite reception, loo hire, and lots elements for festival-goers creature comforts.

Wow, what a camper. I wonder if there are any of these still on the road. Actress Dora Bryan in her 1957 camper (with pop top!) How could they see where they were going?
Check this out! What a great idea. Is there a market?
I saw plenty of nice things at the NEC show this week. One company that really blew me away was Bluefield Houseboats. Not something one may automatically put together with Glamping but, as a holiday experience, staying on one of their boats would be hard to beat. If you have a lake on your land […]
Hi, further to my last post featuring my T25 camper I’ve been researching awnings and have decided that the Glawning is the very best solution. I’ve always been a keen camper and although I have had many good years service from my canvas Cabanon tent, it is now starting to feel its age. So the […]
Not really Glamping Post news but couldn’t resit posting an picture of my just purchased VW T25 high top camper. Looking out for an awning now, hoping to bump into the ‘Glawning’ people www.glawning.com at the NEC this week, I can’t think of a better combination.
