FAQs

 

1. What should I pack for a glamping trip? 

Glamping sites by their nature tend to be super rural, which of course adds to the appeal! However, this means the ground is often rough terrain, and both WiFi and electricity are often limited. A few things that might make your stay more comfortable are: 

  • Sturdy boots / shoes
  • A wind up torch for the darker evenings or getting back to your accommodation at night
  • Powerbank incase you need to recharge your phone / device
  • Warm clothing for evenings outdoor
  • Bathrobe for sites where there is a separate shower block
  • Waterproof layers, just incase the great British weather lets you down! 

2. Can I take my dog glamping? 

This is completely dependant on the site, some of them are more than happy for you to bring Fido, others, for example those on working farms, have a no pet policy to protect their own animals. The owners will always be very transparant about this so it's always nice and easy to check.

3. Do I need to bring my own bedding or towels glamping? 

All of the glamping sites on our list include bedding, however, a couple of them ask you to bring your own towels.

It's really easy to double check through each properties page on the Group Accommodation site, so make sure to have a look just to be sure.
