Twenty of the Best Post-Lockdown UK Glamping Stays – with Private Facilities

13 May 2020

Let’s face it, we all love spending time in the Great Outdoors.  

But as lockdown starts to ease up, we predict a huge demand for fresh-air holidays in the green countryside.

And what is a holiday anyway, if it doesn’t come with a few little luxuries?

These UK glamping sites don’t only offer sumptuous accommodation in the midst of nature, they also boast private cooking and bathroom facilities.  

With no midnight dashes across dark fields to worry about – and no danger of someone snaffling the ingredients for that romantic al fresco dinner – all you have to do is sit back, relax, and indulge in post-lockdown holiday life.

(For obvious reasons, we recommend planning ahead!)
