Coast, castles, mountains, and rivers, Wales makes the perfect backdrop to any glamping break.
If you haven’t got any camping gear or just fancy a bit more comfort when you’re on holiday, there’s plenty of glamping in North Wales with a growing range of options from basic bell tents to incredible treehouses and everything in between.
If you simply want to test out life under canvas before investing in your own tent, stick to the simple set-up tents: bell tents, tipis, and safari tents. All will give you an experience that’s as close to classic camping as glamping can get. Even so, many glamping pads are also set up with more home comforts than you could fit in your car: real beds, proper furniture, and wood-burning stoves among them.
Yurts, or gers, usually offer a little more headroom than a bell tent and usually feel sturdier with layered canvas, wooden floors, and proper doors. Sturdier still are camping pods, shepherd's huts, and gypsy caravans—which are great for whatever the Welsh weather throws at you. The level of luxury inside will vary—some are simply set up and others have en suite bathrooms, TVs, and even hot tubs. These days, when it comes to glamping, if you can’t live without it, you don’t have to.
