Bank holiday camping 2012

This year we’re lucky to have an additional bank holiday due to the Queen’s diamond jubilee, which falls on the 5th of June. Now I’m not the sort of person that needs an excuse for a camping trip, but this little summer treat should be too good to pass up. For regular campers like myself, bank holidays are perfect for an extended weekend away, but trust me when I say…you need to seriously start looking now to be sure of getting a booking. Bank holidays are notoriously busy times for campsites and many even require a minimum stay.

Bank holiday dates for the diary can be found at here.

Once you’ve got that weekend in the diary, take a look at our recommended Yorkshire campsites. There are lots more campsites to choose from out there though and a good place to look is ukcampsite.co.uk.

Now you know I’m bias when it comes to Yorkshire for camping, so do a bit of research on where abouts you want to go. Whether it be the Yorkshire Coast for the white sand, family-friendly seaside resorts and of course the famous fish & chips. Or the Yorkshire Dales, for it’s outstanding scenery, breathtakingly peaceful atmosphere and a perfect pint. There’s also the 1400 miles of natural beauty that is the North York Moors to consider. Home to heather moorland, pine forests and rolling hills. Even the surrounding areas of Harrogate, York, Leeds and Bradford have fantastic places to go camping, so consider wisely, pick a site and get booked.

So what are you waiting for, let’s get started. Let’s get glamping.

Welcome to Yorkshire

We’ve just signed up as a fully fledged member of Welcome to Yorkshire. We’re incredibly happy to be associated with this fantastic tourist board who have just retained their title as THE best marketeer in the World Travel Awards, which as the guardian puts it are “the nearest thing to the Oscars in the industry”.

Here’s one of their brilliant video’s, the Y promotional film. Why Yorkshire…Y not?

Glampit Pinterest page

Who’s heard of Pinterest? It’s an online pinboard that allows it’s users to organise and share things that they find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organise their favourite recipes. Here at Glampit we’ve found that it’s great source for inspiration on new way’s to decorate our bell tents. We’ve started two new pinboards, Glamping & Yorkshire. So why not take a look at pinterest, request an invite and get sharing.

Glamping in the snow

This weekend brought just what Glampit was wishing for…snow and lots of it. It fell across most of the country this weekend, meaning disruption for lots of people, however for us it was an opportunity to get one of the bell tents up and get some great photos.

The field where we pitched up was stunning as the snow was unbroken. We picked our spot, pitched up and furnished the bell tent with all the trimmings. The day light and lack of falling snow offered us a great chance to get some exterior shots. But these were nothing in comparison to what we got when the sun started to set the and the light started to fade. The fairy lights lit up and the interior came alive. Cosy doesn’t even cover it. I think you’ll agree from the pictures, Yorkshire camping can be glamorous even in Winter.
