Must-Have Accessories for Your Next Glamping Trip
For campers who are unfamiliar with the term glamping – it’s essentially camping, but with a modern twist. It would be accurate to say that glamping is a more luxurious form of outdoor holiday – for those who are wanting to experience what nature has to offer, but with comforts and upscale facilities.
Glamping allows campers to experience an outdoor holiday with comfort, ease, and let’s be honest – much less faffing involved. Not everyone likes to get down with nature the same way as off-grid seasoned campers do, and that’s okay.
At Winfields Outdoors, we’re passionate about all forms of outdoor camping, so glampers, this one’s for you. We’ve put together a list of accessories – specifically for glamping – that’ll give you those little touches of comfort to make your outdoor experience even more memorable.
Read on to find out more about the must-have accessories you need for your next glamping trip…
There’s nothing that sets the ambiance on a camping trip quite like lanterns. Sometimes they’re a necessity – but in this instance, a luxury.
Remember, if you want to do glamping the proper way – you’ll want to create that cosy atmosphere as if you were at a home away from home. You won’t be able to flick a switch for light like you do at home (unless you’re in a glamping pod), so ensuring you have a well-lit camping area is essential for a memorable experience.
Nowadays, glamping lanterns are available as rechargeable additions, or even solar power only – with various personalised lighting options to ensure you can make your camping spot as dim or as bright as you’d like.
Strategically placed lanterns around your campsite can really make it feel like more of a natural retreat. We don’t expect you’ll want lights out as soon as it goes dark – so make sure you have some stylish lanterns, and gather around the campfire to roast marshmallows in comfort.
If you’re looking for an alternative to lanterns for your glamping lighting that won’t take up too much space, you could always opt for a more modern approach – Lumi link tube lighting.
Lumi link tube light is set up to go around the inner ceiling of tents and/or awning, using a high-quality velcro-in system. These lighting systems come with a remote, so you can adapt the lighting of your chosen area to suit your preferences. They also tend to come with several different charging options.
Lumi link lighting systems are a great way to preserve the space of your glamping tent, whilst also providing you with access to sophisticated and modern lighting – which just like glamping lanterns, can be adapted to be as bright or as dim as you’d like
Tent rugs are often overlooked when it comes to traditional camping, however, investing in a high-quality tent rug is essential for creating that contemporary and stylish edge to your surroundings, whilst also adding valuable comfort – which is what glamping is all about.
Tent rugs (or carpets) offer your tent that extra luxurious feel and they’re lightweight, so you won’t need to worry about adding any significant weight to your luggage.
A luxurious tent rug or carpet will be not only stylish, but it’ll also have many practical qualities that will help with adding additional comfort.
For example, tent rugs/carpets are water-repellent, and can also be thermal backed to ensure that your tent stays well insulated – creating a valuable touch of comfort, perfect for creating that cosy and snug feeling. It’ll also prevent any damp from accumulating.
In addition, having this glamping addition will also come in great use for keeping your tent clean, whilst ensuring a soft, warm, and carefree footing throughout your entire living area – even if you find yourself in adverse weather conditions or on a particularly hard campsite ground.
Contrary to the name, luxury tent rugs or carpets are that durable, they can also be used outside the tent as a stand-alone carpet addition.
Successfully create that snug homely feeling from the comfort of your campsite with an inflatable furniture set. Most sets are suitable for both inside and outside use, so the choice is yours.
Inflatable furniture sets are perfect for unwinding, and some even come with a stool/table addition. They tend to be quite large once inflated; around the same size as your furniture at home.
Luxury inflatable furniture sets for glamping are so unbelievably comfortable – you might very well find yourself seriously considering swapping out your sofa at home. There are also many different styles and sizing options to choose from, guaranteeing you’ll find the perfect fit for you and your preferences.
When you’re glamping, you want options. A cool box that comes with a built-in ice maker? Now that’s luxury camping.
There’s nothing better than having a refreshing beverage after an active day exploring the outdoors. Coolboxes for camping have come a long way in recent years, and lucky for glampers, they now hold many useful features that’ll help to make a camping trip as comfortable as possible.
Digital cool boxes are now available that come with many premium features. These can include freezer compartments with superior cooling sections, separate refrigeration, silicone ice trays, digital displays, and even Bluetooth and wifi connectivity options.
Campers can now access premium cool boxes via their mobile device and control the temperature settings, and even dictate the ice tray feature. You’ll never have to worry about how to keep your food or beverages chilled again – and you’ll have the perfect addition to your gin and tonic after an adventurous day.
Following on from the above, you can’t have your chilled drinks without the proper glassware.
When on a glamping holiday, you won’t want to take your home set of wine and goblet glasses – so why not prepare and invest in some glamping style versions that you can re-use for all of your outdoor getaways?
There are many glamping versions of tumblers, goblets, and wine glasses now available for outdoor getaways, which are made from premium acrylic glass. This type of glass provides the same touch and essence as real glass, minus the fragility. So you won’t have to worry about any mishaps on your trip away.
Glamping glasses are not only perfect for outdoor use, but they also come in stylish designs, so you can sip your beverage in style. Premium glasses for glamping holidays will last for years, so you won’t have to worry about purchasing frequent replacements.
Lastly, when you’re glamping, you’ll want to make meals as though you had full use of your kitchen at home. You can’t thoroughly enjoy a glamping trip without hearty meals to enjoy around the pitch site.
Nowadays, there are many different types of premium camping cooking equipment available for campers who enjoy a little luxury on their outdoor adventures. Having access to a premium deluxe gas BBQ on your glamping trip will take dining al fresco to a whole new level of enjoyment.
If you’re interested in discovering some amazing brands for cookware equipment, we’d highly recommend using Cadac, Campingaz, and/or Coleman. They offer a superb range of various cooking equipment, which can be found over at Winfields Outdoors. Check out our full selection of cooking equipment here.
With access to equipment like this, you’ll be able to grill up a storm and create all those camping meal time favourites with complete ease – and there are lightweight and easy-to-store away options for glampers with limited space.
On a glamping trip, you don’t want to feel restricted. Include a portable deluxe gas BBQ within your equipment, and what you’ll be able to whip up will be limitless.
Whether you love to cook up hearty favourites such as rich pasta dishes, or prefer to keep it simple with a variety of BBQ favourites – the choice will be yours with a deluxe gas BBQ.
