WHAT IS GLAMPING?
If you are unfamiliar with the term, glamping is a hybrid of the words “glamorous” and “camping”. The word first filtered into conversation in the UK in 2015 and grew on the British public so much that by 2016, it had officially been added into the Oxford English Dictionary!
In a nutshell, glamping is essentially camping in style. Traditional camping isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and sleeping on a deflated airbed in a leaky tent might not be the rest you’re looking for – especially after a long day of adventures.
Thankfully, glamping is on the rise and is the perfect mix of adventure, fun and comfort. Particularly in the North West, glamping is a great option for a family holiday (kids will love some of the quirky accommodation options!), but it’s equally brilliant for a couples retreat or a get together with friends. From yurts to vintage caravans and hobbit houses to bell tents, you can be sure to enjoy a holiday with a twist.
Of course it does!

This beautiful county has a lot to offer when it comes to sightseeing and adventure. From its rural villages to its Industrial Revolution heritage, Cheshire is truly a wonderful glamping spot.
Things to do When Glamping in Cheshire
One of the best places to visit when glamping in Cheshire is Tatton Park. The estate is simply HUGE and there are many areas to explore including a mansion house, gardens, a farm, and a deer park. And if that’s not enough, Tatton Park also hosts about a hundred events each year! Children will love the adventure playground and there are plenty of trails for both walking and cycling – many pushchair friendly.
Other popular family friendly things to do in Cheshire include a trip to Delamere Forest (a lovely easy walk for kids through beautiful woodland – don’t miss the famous Gruffalo Trail!), Gulliver World’s Theme Park, and Cheshire Falconry, to name a few. And if it’s festival action you’re after, Cheshire is the home of Creamfields music festival which boasts some of the biggest names of the dance and electronic music world, as well as Bluedot Festival (the perfect blend of music and science) and the family focused Just So Festival. Phew!

GLAMPING IN LANCASHIRE
Lancashire is a fantastic spot to consider for a glamping adventure. Even driving through this beautiful county can be exhilarating – take in those rolling green hills, attractive stone brick houses and animals grazing in the fields.
Things to do When Glamping in Lancashire
There are many things to do when glamping in Lancashire that will take your glamorous camping to the next level. If it’s a spot of history you’re after, get yourself down to Lancaster Castle for an insight into England’s dark past, or Lancaster Priory – a grade 1 listed building which has seen worship take place on its site all the way back to the Saxon times. Lancashire is also the place to go if you want to learn more about the tragic witch trials of the 17th century – the Pendle Witch Trials in 1612 were among the most famous and well documented witch trials to ever take place.
However, if all that history seems a little stuffy and you’re craving some fresh country air, Lancashire can offer it in abundance. Take a walk on the sand at Morcambe Bay or Lytham St. Annes, lace up those hiking boots and explore the rugged West Pennine Moors, or take a trip to Rivington, one of the prettiest villages in all of England.
Convinced? Here are my top picks for glamping in Lancashire.

If you’re happy to travel just a tiny bit further and hop over the Welsh border into North Wales, you can explore even more options for the perfect glamping trip. With mountains to climb, hikes a plenty and adventure activities galore, North Wales has so much to offer its happy glampers.
Here are a few of my favourite glamping spots.

WHAT TO TAKE GLAMPING
If you’re anything like me, you’ll hate packing with a vengeance. Packing can actually take me hours as I faff around deciding what to take for ages before ultimately deciding to take everything for every eventuality and squashing as much as I can into the car.
Since we now have 2 kids to take along with us, I have less space in the car for my own stuff and I’ve had to become a bit more sensible and strategic with my packing. So that I don’t overpack (or underpack – I’m not sure what’s worse!), I’ve created a packing guide to help speed up the process. Check it out for a stress free packing experience!
TOP TIPS FOR GLAMPING
Want to make sure your glamping North West experience is as perfect as it possible can be? Then let me fill you in on my tried and tested top tips for glamping!
- Before you even start to pack your bags, you’ll want to make sure you know what facilities are already available at your glamping destination. As you can see from the numerous options listed above, glamping covers a wide range of accommodation options – some more glamorous than others! So check the booking website or give the owners of your accommodation a call.
- Check out the area online before you arrive. Are there activities you want to get involved in during your stay? During busy periods (usually school holidays), lots of activities may get booked up ahead of time. Avoid disappointment and book in advance.
- This may sound a little crazy, but if you’re travelling as a family or in a larger group, consider packing a slow cooker. Most of the glamping North West options I’ve listed do have kitchen facilities but no one wants to spend their evenings stuck in the kitchen when you could be sitting round a fire pit enjoying a glass of wine. Packing your slow cooker solves this problem. Pop all the ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning, pop it on a slow cook setting and come home to a fresh home cooked meal after a day of adventures. Easy!
- If you do plan on making your own food whilst glamping, check whether there is a local supermarket so you can do a grocery shop when you get there. No one wants to take food (especially fresh food and meat) on a long car journey. Even better, check if the local supermarkets deliver to your glamping site. One less job to worry about when you get there!
- Keep a cool box in the car so you can enjoy picnics whilst out and about. This is actually a good money saving tip as it can get costly buying lunch out every day. Plus, there’s something really fun about picnic food on the go!

How do glamping and camping differ?
Glamping and camping both have adventure and a stay in nature at their core. However, there are some clear differences between the two.
Glamping is a far more luxurious and… well, more glamorous version of camping! The kind of immersion in nature where you don’t have to worry about your tent sagging in the rain, where you’ll charge your phone and where you put the torch (and your shoes and coat and jumper and….) when you want to go to the toilet in the middle of the night.
Clearly, if you choose to go glamping, you’re much more limited as to where you can go. Sure, there are now glamping sites popping up all over the place, but it doesn’t offer the same freedom as camping where you can erect your tent pretty much wherever you want (as long as it’s legal!).
You’ll undoubtably need to take more things with you on a camping trip (including your own accommodation!) and it will take longer to set yourself up and get comfortable once you reach your destination. For some, this is a part of the draw to camping – the fun of erecting a tent, inventive cooking on a small camping stove, snuggling up in a sleeping bag at night – but for others, who just want to get on with exploring and getting stuck into activities, this may all prove too much of a hinderance. There’s none of this with glamping – simply rock up, collect your keys and get on with doing whatever it is you came to do….even if that is simply sitting in the hot tub surrounded by the luscious countryside!
Some may argue that glamping takes away from the true experience of camping, and it’s true that you may feel ‘closer’ to nature and the great outdoors when there’s only a ground sheet and a sheet of canvas between you, the grass and the stars.
But glamping offers a whole experience of its own. Lots of the glamping options on offer are fun and quirky, and staying somewhere a bit different is a treat in itself. It’s a way for you to enjoy the benefits of camping and the great outdoors whilst maintaining a certain level of luxury!
Glamping and camping offer similar but at the same time, very different experiences. To help you decide, work out what your priorities are for a fun outdoorsy getaway (cost vs comfort, convenience vs freedom etc) and see whether your needs are best met by a traditional camping or fancy glamping experience!
Is glamping more expensive than camping?
Glamping covers a wide range of accommodation options – some more luxurious than others! It’s really up to you to decide just how glamorous you want your glamping experience to be.
Clearly, the more deluxe options will come with a more costly price tag attached so you’ll need to decide just how much your comfort is worth when searching for the perfect glamping experience.
Having said that, the costs of camping can really start to rack up too if you want to do it properly.
If you’re a seasoned camper and find yourself sleeping under canvas numerous times a year, it might be worth it for you to buy into all the camping gear on offer (and there is a LOT you could buy in to!).
However, if you’re someone who just wants to try it out, or knows the novelty will likely wear off after a couple of trips, then glamping, where most of what you need for a comfortable stay is provided for you (think bed linen, cooking equipment, eating utensils etc) might work out being a more cost effective option.
What makes a good glamping experience?
Like with any good holiday, if you’re with the right people then you’re more than half way there.
Glamping is pretty unique in that it’s just as perfect for couples as it is for groups of friends and/or families. So make sure you choose your friends and partners wisely!
You’ll also want to make sure you have everything you need. Like I mentioned earlier, check with the glamping site what they provide so you can make sure you bring any extras you might need.
And finally, have a think about what you want out of this glamping experience in the North West. Do you want to relax? Go hiking? Learn how to windsurf? Visit theme parks?
Check what there is to do in the local areas and make sure it has everything you need to make your glamping North West experience your best getaway yet.
