The Best of Both Worlds – Camping & Glamping in Winter


If you’re like most people, the word “camping” probably conjures up images of tents, sleeping bags, and cooking over a campfire. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, camping has come a long way in recent years. Nowadays, there’s a type of camping for everyone, even those who don’t want to rough it. Enter “glamping” – a luxurious form of camping that combines the best of both worlds. You get all the benefits of being in nature without having to sacrifice your creature comforts.  

And what are those benefits, you may ask? Well, according to a study done by the University of Essex, being in nature can boost your mood, improve your sleep quality, and reduce stress levels. 

So, if you’ve been feeling a little down lately or are having trouble sleeping, glamping might be just what the doctor ordered. Not convinced? Here are some more reasons why you should give glamping a try this winter and book a glamping break at one of the best campsites in the Peak District.

1. Winter is the perfect time to disconnect from technology 

With all the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas period, sometimes it’s nice to unplug and take a break from all the noise. When you go glamping, you’ll have no choice but to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with nature – and yourself. One of the best parts about glamping is that it forces you to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life.  

2. Winter camping is incredibly cosy 

Picture this: snuggling up by an open fire pit with a good book and a hot cup of tea after spending a long day exploring the great outdoors. Sounds pretty perfect, right? With glamping, you don’t have to choose between being cosy and being outdoors – you can have both! A Peak District weekend break has never looked better.
