What to take glamping travel bag

Here are some essentials and extras you might want to pop into your glamping travel bag:


A few base layers are always handy to pack to wear under t-shirts and jumpers, they are breathable and warm and will keep you feeling comfortable, whatever the activity or English weather!

Sensible shoes

There are lots of great walks around us with some stunning scenery. Having a stout pair of walking shoes or trainers to support your feet are a must!


We hate to mention rain, but if you are heading off glamping in the UK, then the weather can be a little bit unpredictable. So, whatever the season, be prepared and bring along your waterproofs and wellies are always useful!


While we mention the rain, we should mention the sunshine too! Make sure you bring a pair of sunglasses; even in the winter months the sun can be bright.

Electrical accessories

On your glamping trip to remember, you’re going to want to take lots of photos to capture the memories! Make sure that you pack your camera, or if you are using your phone, your phone charger!


The huts have a DAB radio, playing cards and some board games, which offers the perfect opportunity to switch off and reduce your screen time! For entertainment you might want to bring along that book you’ve been meaning to cross off your bucket list for a while or use the maps on offer to plan your countryside walk for the next day.

Daily essentials

Normal toiletries are a must (although we do provide a welcome selection of soap, shampoo, body lotion and shower gel to get you started), also don’t forget your sun skin protection in the warmer months!


Picnic basket with apple juice, eggs, milk

For breakfast, you may want to order one of our delicious breakfast hampers which are stocked full of yummy local produce for a continental-style breakfast. Or feel free to bring along your own breakfast items to enjoy. The outdoor space at the huts is perfect for lazy picnics and barbeques… bring along your favourite food and something delicious to drink whilst you relax, unwind and enjoy the splendid countryside views.
