Festival Glamping

Ahhhh spring is in the air, and we’ve been thinking ‘Festival time’. We couldn’t help but be impressed with the variety and styles of glamping accommodation.

From huts to bell tents, the list goes on, glamping at festivals has grown hugely over the last few years.

Pod PadYou can see why glamping has become an option, with the British weather being unpredictable at best, and downright torrential at worst. Fed up with having to put up their tents whilst getting drenched, festival goers are opting to Glamp. Glamping gives the option to have a great time from the outset. Paying a bit more for that festival ticket, brings the thrill of hot showers, beds and added comfort. Could that be what you’re looking for?

Here are a few ideas,

Podpads (pictured top right) are popping up everywhere this year (literally), including Cornbury Music Festival, Womad, and Camp Bestival. First appearing at Glastonbury in 2004, the range has grown each year. The basic Podpad is pretty sturdy, and will stand up to most severe weather conditions. Inside they have a 12v car sockets, solar powered LED lighting, carpeting, mirror and hanging storage.

Cloudhouses Festival GlampingDon’t fancy a pod? Would rather look at a Yurt or Tipi? how about a Cloudhouse?  I didn’t know what one was either, at Yurts and Squirts, they take Cloudhouses along to festivals. A form of Persian Yurt called an Alachigh, the Cloudhouse measures 10 feet in diameter, and almost 7 feet in height. They come furnished with rugs, fluffy sheepskins, co-ordinating cushions, table lantern and t lights.


Festival GlampingHow about these, Hobbit Huts, available at many festivals this summer including, Shambala, and Portleven Food and Music Festival. Cornish born and bred, the Hobbit Huts are handcrafted using sustainable materials, which keep you dry and cosy.  Although small and inviting, they come with either a cosy double or 2 single beds. Together with, 2 plug sockets for charging phones, a lamp, heating, coat hooks and vital space for your wellies. To complete the experience they include two ‘hobbity chairs’ and a ‘hobbitshire’ fire pit.
