Is this EGG Glamping?

Top 10 Ultimate Glamping Essentials - Inspired Camping and Glamping -


If you are about to embark on a luxury boutique camping experience, then here are our top 10 ultimate glamping essentials we think you should expect.

A Real Bed

You will know when you’re glamping as you will have a real bed with a comfortable mattress and maybe even a goose down topper. Sleeping outside will never feel the same again with this glamping essential. However, if it has to be an air bed then make sure it’s one of these.

Luxury Bedding

If you want to truly experience glamping outside, then you must have the best bedding to ensure you are comfortable throughout your stay. This should include a duvet for all seasons, a quilted cotton bedspread for extra warmth if needed, luxury pillows, bed linen of high thread cotton or the ultimate indulgence… silk.

Glorious Lighting

Lanterns and fairy lights are what make a glamping experience gorgeous, romantic and unforgettable at night. Many of these can be solar powered, helping to make glampers earth friendly eco warriors while they indulge in the luxury of this stay outdoors.

A Bathroom

Typically your own bathroom is expected when staying at a hotel, but it is often seen as luxury on a camping trip. This is why a bathroom will be provided on an ultimate glamping trip, and it will include beautifully smelling bathroom products, soaps and moisturisers to help you feel like a millionaire while you’re outside.

A Hot Tub

The ultimate glamping experience will have one of these in the open air to give its happy glamper user a boutique star gazing experience they’ll never forget.

Luxury Food Items

Forget dry sandwiches, cheese and crackers! Your ultimate glamping experience will have a basket of goodies you’ll never forget. Hand caught local fish, organic vegetables, tropical fruits and prime steak, ready to be washed down by full-bodied reds, crisp whites, Champagne and cocktails.

Delicious Drinks

The ultimate glamping trip will have a fully stocked drinks cabinet, and the ability to make as many cocktails as you can drink. Here are a few of our own cheeky camping cocktail suggestions for you to consider before your trip.

Glamping Inspirations

If being outdoors isn’t your thing, and you’re just trying out glamping to see what all the fuss is about, then you’ll need a bit of inspiration about what to do on your trip. many of these activities should be available in abundance on your trip.

Fire

Glamping, just like traditional camping, must provide an ability to make fire in either a fire pit or woodburner. This meets one of our fundamental prehistoric needs to hunt, gather and cook… even if we are smoothing the edges of roughing it at the same time.

Many Extras

These are the things you don’t actually need, but they make your glamping experience more opulent and… well… more of an experience. Typically you wouldn’t pack any of this for your own camping trip, and that is exactly what makes glamping so special. Extras include throws and cushions, muslin curtains, floral incense sticks, bunting, fluffy towels, and eye masks and ear plugs for the ultimate nights sleep.

Tell us what your ultimate glamping essentials are and when you’re planning your next trip.



Happy Inspired Camping & Glamping

I don't have a tub but do eat off of pewter plates and bowls

I guess I need to work on better lighting...the led candles are nice but not bright enough to read by.

Here's where e-readers are handy. Your LED candlelight is perfect if the "book" has its own light source.

LOL seriously all those items go on every trip with me regardless of whether its 2 days or 8 weeks, plugged in or dry camping in BML lands. All the top ten are standard camping for me as well with the exception of the hot tub.

Last Glamping trip was finished just yesterday having attended 4 days at a Tin Can Tourist Vintage campout. The Tin Can tourists wrote the book on glamping

I've been trying to justify buying a Softub, but it is difficult to convince Robert that we need one.

I'd be staring at you eating off pewter only because of worry about the lead content! It all depends on the manufacturing...

I've noticed the majority of glamping pictures for trailers are
tin cans and teardrops..........But I keep searching to pick up
an idea here and there.
