Glamping with kids – A pick of our favourite glamping holidays in the UK

Glamping with kids –  A pick of our favourite glamping holidays in the UK

You know how much we love a road trip in the campervan but we also have another love. The Otis and Us tribe LOVE a glamping holiday. There is something great about arriving to a ready made bed, hanging lanterns, beautiful throws, fresh air and sitting back watching the kids run wild. Not forgetting how much the kids enjoy toasting marshmallows on a campfire before bed. It is fabulous to stumble across a unique and quirky glamping site that welcomes children with open arms. Glamping with kids = some truly special memories.

So here are some of our favourite family glamping sites that we have tried and tested in the UK. I have also included a post about a study by Plymouth uni and The Camping and Caravanning Club that reports children who camp do better at school!

So……. What are you waiting for!

    We’ve yet to go glamping! It’s always been a tent for us but the idea of bringing less than half of the stuff really does sound appealing. I love the look of Surf Snowdonia and the bonus of learning to surf as well would be great for the kids.

    We haven’t gone glamping yet, but I am fascinated! And I think our little bear would love it. Great suggestions, thank you!

    Wow, so many great glamping options here! Some of them look very established, and luxurious. I’d love to give some of these a go! #MondayEscapes
