With spring in full swing and the days becoming warmer and longer, we are all beginning to spend some more time outside. With this in mind, garden furniture is being dusted off and we’re making plans with friends and family for sunny days and warm evenings.
Many of us are also booking staycations, which we have been unable to do throughout lockdown. One of the most popular UK getaway ideas at the moment is glamping pods. But, why are they so popular?
Let’s take a closer look.
When it comes to glamping in these pods, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of setting up a tent. So, whether you arrive in the rain, sun, morning or evening to your destination you can start enjoying your staycation, without having to start putting your tent up! You can quite literally roll up and start your mini break, as everything is ready and waiting for you behind the door.
Comfortable, Warm and Cosy
Unlike camping in a tent, opting for glamping pods means that you won’t be waking up at 4am freezing cold or dreading the walk to the toilet. Not only are glamping pods fitted with a working bathroom, so you can just roll out of bed, but the pods are also designed to keep you at the right temperature.
During the winter months they hold heat brilliantly, and some have double-glazed windows and wool insulation built into their walls!
Traditional camping in a tent means that your phone will die in the first 24 hours of arrival and you can say goodbye to electricity for the duration of your stay!
However, glamping pods actually have electricity and a place for you to charge your phone. They’re really just miniature cosy homes if you choose the right one! So, you can get closer to nature and enjoy spending time outside, but still have working tech to capture those precious moments and in case of emergency, and even boil yourself a cup of tea with ease!
Despite going away on holiday being super exciting, before you leave you have to say goodbye to your four-legged friend or take them to the kennels whilst you’re away. However, if you opt for a UK staycation in a glamping pod, you’re more than likely to be able to take your dog with you!
Plus, what is a holiday without your dog! They can enjoy curling up with you in the evenings and exploring on your walks or have a run on the beach!
Unique Hot Tubs
To top it all off, loads of glamping pods also have a hot tub! After a day of hiking, exploring the local village or a trip to the beach, you can sink into a warm bubbling hot tub that is private for you and your tub to use. Watch the sun set, star gaze or even listen to some relaxing music as you truly unwind in your hot tub - the perfect finishing touch to your staycation!
As you can see, there are so many reasons why glamping pods are so popular, and the list could go on! So, what are you waiting for? Book your staycation in a glamping pod now!
