Apple Wood Glamping
Voted number three for specialty lodging through Trip Advisor is the Apple Wood Glamping site. Glamping for those unaware of the term is a form of camping which involves accommodation and facilities which is just a little more luxurious than those associated with the traditional camping by single tents with sleeping bags. Glamping is becoming more and more popular since people love the idea of camping, yet the horrific thought of having torrential rain fall in the night leaving you water logged is the first thing that puts most of us. Another off-putting feature of traditional camping is that working toilets with hand wash followed with hot showers are not available. Hence why the amazing idea of “Glamping” was introduced. Of course it strips out the rural nature of camping as you have more facilities and some of the glamping properties around are becoming more and more modern and enclosed. However, here at Apple Wood you can be assured that you will receive the full camping treatment. This is an amazing place for families, hen-do’s and even stag do’s, you can cook your own breakfast on the BBQ provided, light fires right outside your tent, and play cards maybe with a glass of wine or a beer and just relax, unwind and maybe do a spot of star gazing. Large towels, candle lights, comfortable beds, extra blankets and a cooking stove is provided with a few more luxuries in each facility.
