What is glamping?

Glamping is a luxury form of camping. It’s like camping but with more facilities and accommodations, and should be more comfortable than a regular camp bed. It allows you to be close to nature but still have the finer things, like a bathroom with a hot shower, a toilet, a luxury bed and the ability to cook indoors or outside on a stove or barbeque.

What is a glamping experience like at Greenhill Glamping?

We are obviously slightly biased, but we feel like glamping at Greenhill is very special. We are lucky enough to have won a couple of Glamping awards (blush). At Greenhill Glamping, we offer a unique self-catering stay for two. We believe that our two fully restored vintage shepherd’s huts will give you the ultimate luxury glamping experience. The views around our farm and the Kent Downs allow you to feel close to the outdoor life but with the comforts of “being at home”. When you stay at the Shepherds hut, you can wake up listening to birdsong overlooking our fields of sheep and horses and relax in the evening by the fire pit, toasting marshmallows and watching the sun go down.

What should you bring on your glamping holiday?

This variety in glamping accommodation and individual glamping sites across the UK, means that what you pack will differ depending on the type of accommodation.

-check with the glamping accommodation if their bathroom and kitchen facilities

-check the location of the site

-think about the time of year you are staying

-think about what activities you are doing.

When you book your accommodation with Greenhill Glamping, we’ve tried to think of everything to make your stay as easy and relaxing as possible so your glamping travel bag will be nice and light!
