When you’re thinking of the great outdoors on Dartmoor national park, inclement weather, insects and the discomfort of camping don’t often make it into your daydream. Having access to home comforts such as power and heat, not to mention a weather-proof glamping pod could be part of the reason a rise in bookings and Google searches for glamping accommodation has been seen over the past few years. Glamping in the UK accounted for 4% of the 15.2 million trips taken in 2017. Since then, holidays in glamping pods have continued to rise.
Glamping is the activity of camping with some of the comforts and luxuries of home. A compound word derived from ‘glamourous’ and ‘camping’, the term glamping encompasses accommodation options such as Newfoundland pods, yurts, tipis, and large safari tents. These options make up most of the glamping accommodation on offer in the UK.
Glampers still get to enjoy the scenic beauty of the spot they have chosen and adventurousness of outdoor life without the need to forego modern luxuries and comfort.
At Langstone Manor Park, our glamping pods provide visitors with a memorable and comfortable outdoor experience. Guests are able to choose from the large Langstone camping pods which include access to immaculate five-star showers, toilets and dishwashing facilities as well as the pod itself with an outdoor seating area, heating, lights, electric and USB sockets. For those who don’t want to take all of their camping gear (bar the tent), Langstone Mega Pods are the perfect answer. These include the facilities of the camping pods plus a double bed, full kitchenette, fridge and even a T.V!
Thanks to Brexit and the increase in ‘staycations’ for those wanting to get the most for their holiday pounds, there are multiple glamping options in Devon. Langstone Manor Park is ideally situated to provide easy access to multiple walks in Dartmoor national park, the picturesque village of Mary Tavy and the beautiful natural features of Lydford Gorge. We’re already taking bookings for the year ahead, so get in touch to reserve your own adventurous glamping holiday with us.
