Why is Glamping Here To Stay?


Luxury camping is a unique and special way to enjoy the UK countryside without sacrificing your home comforts! Discover why glamping is here to stay, find out about glamping UK holidays for all the family at Holgates, and book a glamping pod today!  

What is Glamping?

Glamping stands for ‘Glamorous Camping’ and allows you to enjoy the outdoors, but with a few extra home comforts than a traditional camping trip! We offer a selection of glamping pods across our Holgates holiday parks in Lancashire, Cumbria and the Ribble Valley. So, if you’re looking for a luxury glamping holiday in a great location, book a Holgates Glamping Holiday today.  

Why is ‘Glamorous Camping’ so popular?

One of the main reasons glamping is so popular is that it offers an opportunity to go camping in unique accommodation. A quirky glamping pod, complete with luxuries from electricity to a shower room, offers a completely unique experience compared to staying in a tent. 

Glamping also offers people of all ages the opportunity to experience nature and enjoy the fresh air of the countryside without sacrificing any of your home comforts. Our pet-friendly luxury glamping pods at Holgates boast a fully-equipped kitchenette, a brick-built BBQ stand and a private outdoor area with a dining table and chairs so you can enjoy the outdoors with friends and family.    

Our popular glamping holidays at Holgates Parks are perfect whether you’re spending a few nights with family or friends. We offer the very best glamping sites in Lancashire, Cumbria and the Ribble Valley, all of our accommodation is ideally located for a few nights in the countryside or by the coast, with stunning views, walking routes and nearby attractions. 

Central heating and double-glazing also means glamping accommodation can be warm, cosy and perfect to stay in all year round.   

Holgates Glamping Sites 

Holgates offer glamping accommodation at several of our UK holiday parks. Discover glamping pods, luxury glamping pods, and family fun pods at our Holgates glamping locations. 

Spend a night at Silverdale Holiday Park and make the most of the facilities, including a swimming pool and on-site bar, enjoy the great outdoors and spectacular scenery of Hollins Farm at the foot of Arnside Knott, enjoy the glamping experience at our newest Ribble Valley park, or experience nature and the charming Morecambe Bay coastline at Bay View.   

Holgates Glamping Accommodation

We also offer a range of different glamping accommodation at our Holgates glamping sites. Our glamping holidays are perfect for a relaxing break, whether you choose our Standard Camping Pods with the bare necessities, Luxury Camping Pods with everything you need for a cosy break, or our Deluxe Den Camping Pods that can sleep up to six people! 

When you book a Standard Glamping Pod with electricity, you’ll need to bring everything you would usually bring if camping in a tent, such as your own bedding, towels and cooking equipment. However, if you book a Luxury Pod or a Luxury Pod with Bunks, you’ll benefit from the provided duvet, pillows and bed linen, towels for an additional £5 per set, a kitchenette and BBQ, hi-tech home comforts, including a wall-mounted television, a Bluetooth sound system and much more. 

Large enough to accommodate six people, our Double Deluxe Den Camping Pods is a home away from home and includes a kitchen with a fridge, microwave, oven, grill and hob, a PVC Veranda, an outdoor rattan dining table and six chairs.
