Glamping vs Camping: Choose the holiday that suits you!

Heard a lot about glamping but unsure about what it involves? We will show the differences between camping and glamping to help you to discover which type of accommodation is best for you.

Ahh camping, sleeping under the stars, eating alfresco, and spending quality time with your family - what's not to love? Finally you can take a well-deserved break away and take some time to relax in the beautiful countryside! 

Why not make it a fun team activity with the kids to put up the tent and reward yourselves with a tasty barbeque on the patio, before bunking down to sleep under the stars.

If you’re holidaying with children it can add to the excitement of sleeping in a tent instead of a bed for a fun change, and teach them some survival skills!

However, if the thought of snoozing in a sleeping bag doesn’t quite give you that warm fuzzy feeling, then glamping will be right up your street. Glamping is a luxurious version of camping, which gives you the best of both worlds of camping and a staying in a hotel.

Who knew that you could be so close to nature whilst being able to surf the web, cook your favourite meals in a fully equipped kitchen, and charge your electronics just like you would at home!

Another great thing about glamping is that insulation keeps it warm in the cold and cool in the heat, so there’s no need to worry about an uncomfortable night’s sleep.

It’s perfect for families and groups who are looking for a quirky holiday with minimum effort that you can tell all of your friends about!

At Crealy Meadows you can stay in the South West’s answer to the Serengeti with our deluxe safari glamping cabins.

Or you even sleep under the ‘knight’ sky with your little princes and princesses in our medieval themed glamping tents!

But don’t worry camping traditionalists; we have you covered too with modern bathroom facilities, dishwashing facilities, plus a living and dining area to enjoy.

Whether you’re glamping or camping, you’re sure to have an amazing time at Crealy!

Nestled in between acres of farmland, and a short drive away from Exeter city centre, stunning seaside towns (Torquay, Teignmouth and Dawlish to name a few), and many places of interest, you’ll never run out of places to explore.

Children’s play areas, evening entertainment, and a theme park next-door means that there’s always something to keep everyone amused.

If you’re after unique premium accommodation, and fancy yourself as a bit of a trendsetter, then a Devon glamping break should be the go-to for your next trip. However if you want to be as close to nature as you possibly can, camping in Devon is your calling!
