Why go glamping this winter?

Glamping is not restricted to the warmer seasons as some would believe. We have a range of winter glamping sites open all year round which will provide a fun and festive getaway for all of the family. Experience cosy glamping at one of our luxury glamping or camping pods this winter. 

Step into the great outdoors to enjoy crisp, fresh winter walks

The colder months can be ideal for walking through enchanting woodlands and witnessing explosions of colour. All of our winter glamping sites are surrounded by beautiful nature and will bring you closer to breath-taking natural surroundings. From the 63 acres of National Trust woodland at our Coniston Park Coppice glamping site, to the peaceful Cotswold countryside known for its untouched charm at our Moreton-in-Marsh site, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to wrap up, get active and embrace the outdoors. If you stay at Coniston Park Coppice, you are in an ideal location to explore the lakes, high mountain passes and stunning landscapes of the Lake District. Complete high adventure, dramatic winter walks or, from February, privately tour key Beatrix Potter locations for a great family day out. 

Another great option for a winter glamping trip is our Alderstead Heath site which is ideally located near valley woodlands and the West Sussex Downs, an area known for its outstanding natural beauty. Discover the historic villages or pleasant market towns scattered all around the area. After your brisk walk, why not indulge in a warm, hearty meal at one of the many welcoming, local pubs. Just 35 minutes drive from this site, you can also visit the renowned Polesden Lacey's winter garden, one of the first gardens of its kind. Look out for the mesmerising red buds and snowdrops that bloom across the garden all through the late winter.

 "I was impressed with every part of this camp site and my stay here! The pod was lovely, a very accommodating space and there’s an excellent little heater that warms the place up to a good room temp." - Mike Braithwaite, Coniston Park Coppice site

Relax and get into the festive mood

Escape from the Christmas rush to really enjoy the time of year and get some peace and quiet. Whether you choose to stay in one of our glamping pods, camping pods or Airstream caravans, you’ll get the chance to snuggle up and sip hot chocolate in a warm, cosy space. Our glamping pods and Airstreams are snug throughout the winter time, all with heating, lighting and insulation. You may even wish to embrace your creative side by decorating your cabin with glittering tinsel, a colourful tree and homemade decorations.

Many towns will be turning on the Christmas lights in winter and if you fancy a more animated winter experience, why not stay at our luxurious Abbey Wood glamping site which offers tranquillity combined with having easy access to the dazzling lights of London. Here you can browse the markets of the capital, visit the Trafalgar Square Christmas tree, ice-skate at Somerset House and discover Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park. Why not watch the New Year's eve firework display or hit the Oxford Street sales in the New Year to find some bargains in top London stores.

Discover a variety of fun, family-friendly activities

As the colder season approaches, a multitude of delightful experiences become available so that you can beat the winter blues. The National Trust, who are renowned for having interesting places to visit all over the UK, provide an array of winter inspired activities to help you make memories and enjoy magical times together; from Christmas markets and winter fairs to starlit illumination walks. Our winter campsites are conveniently located near to many National Trust properties or Gardens, so why not check out their website to see what's going on. 

If you decide to go glamping in Brighton, you will be near to the vibrant city centre where you can skate at the Royal Pavilion up until mid January and shop at Brighton's lively lanes or unique boutiques. At this campsite, you will also be situated near to the magnificent South Downs and Sussex countryside. Nearby is an opportunity for you to follow a winter pub walking trail, starting from the traditional Tiger Inn. This circular route covers spectacular views of the downs and East Sussex coast line, and by the end of your invigorating walk, you can have warming meal at a quintessentially English pub. Alternatively, visit Wakehurst Place, only a 45 minute drive away, to take part in Glow Wild, an event where hundreds of glowing lanterns and torches are lit up to bring the walking trail to life. Later in the winter, enjoy a relaxing traditional Sunday roast at Wakehurst's historic mansion and explore their seasonal plants.

 

 "We had such a nice time! It's in an easily accessible, but peaceful location. The staff kindly put the heater on in the pod prior to us arriving so it was set for a cosy evening. It's a great location to get out and explore on foot. We went for a long walk and stopped for a lovely pub lunch." -Megan S, Alderstead Heath site
