In the 1920s, an African safari became “the thing to do” among wealthy Britons and Americans. But wealthy travellers, even those in search of adventure, were not willing to sacrifice comfort or luxury. From electric generators, to folding baths, and cases of champagne, travellers were afforded every domestic luxury while on adventure.
Glamping is its modern equivalent, combining both yesterday’s amenities and today’s technology. Also called boutique camping, luxury camping, posh camping, or comfy camping, today’s glamping features such structures as yurts, tipis, pods, bell tents, vintage caravans, vintage trailers, safari tents, tent cabins, and tree houses.
Here at Cwt Gwyrdd we offer a Shepherd’s Hut, a Bell Tent and this “barn style” Pod, a well insulated and comfortable sleeping unit, beautifully decorated and furnished with a double bed, dressing table and chair.
