As we move forward in the year many peoples minds move into holiday mode and we start to think about having a well deserved break, one of the popular holidays that seems to have popped up through out Britain is Glamping. Some people may be confused to what this actually entails..
The word “glamping” first appeared in the United Kingdom in 2005 and was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016.The word is new, but the concept that “glamping” connotes, that of luxurious tent-living or luxury accommodation in the countryside.
Could be bell tents, safari tents, tipis, off grid wooden building or shepherds huts.
Why has Glamping become so popular?
In an article by www.goworldtravel.com they mention that people enjoy being close to nature without all the uncomfortable hassles of camping, don’t know about you but I would much rather sleep in a bed, cosy and warm than sleep on a hard floor with the roof blowing around me freezing cold. ( I’m sure this does suit a lot of people, but I would def prefer little bit more comfort whilst enjoying nature)
With this in mind and that we are coming out of a stressful year I thought I’d put together a Glamping Blog of some businesses who enjoy using our luxury led candles.
We start with DREAMSCENE Events who are actually based in Australia! Dream Dinners is an exclusive and luxurious styled dining experience like no other! We quite often feature their beautifully styled alfresco tables on our Instagram page @candleduk so inline with this blog we are featuring their bell tent dining. See photos below..
Sarah says..” I finally found the perfect LED candle that gives just the right amount of glow, isn’t orange, and flickers like a real candle in stead of blinking. But most importantly, I have peace of mind knowing that I can walk away knowing they are 100% safe!! We live in a breezy city so I am grateful I can still offer open-air candlelit dinners and dinners inside tents for my clients without them blowing out or spilling wax everywhere. But as an added bonus they are the only candles I have found that can trick a camera! I am forever grateful for coming across candled during a late night google surfing safari and don’t know what I would do without them”.
Kelker Well Roundhouse
With stunning views, your own private space and a wood-fired hot tub, we aim to give guests a unique and sustainable roundhouse glamping experience that rests, relaxes and inspires.
Adele with the support of her family has set up a stunning, unique off-grid roundhouse accommodation on their Lakeland farm with spectacular views of the Lake District fells, Yorkshire Dales & Morecambe Bay. Adele was originally inspired by a glamping holiday on a welsh farm and this led to building up their own plan of running a similar business on their family farm,
A big part of Kelker Well was for it to be sustainable this was achieved by sourcing local sustainable materials, composting waste, promoting wildlife habitats by planting wildflower meadows and many more ideas. Check out their website to find out more about their journey www.kelkerwell.com
