Camping has always been a popular way for people to get away from it all and spend some quality time out in a natural environment with their friends, family, and loved ones. It's a fun way to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of nature, but camping can also come with its own little problems that make every trip slightly more trouble than it really needs to be.


Issues like setting up your tent, having to deal with wet ground or rainy conditions, trying to get to sleep in an uncomfortable sleeping bag, and not having access to the sorts of utilities and services you'd normally be able to enjoy are just a few of the problems many people tend to face while camping. This is why so many people have turned away from traditional camping in recent years and chosen 'glamping' instead.

A portmanteau word combining 'glamorous' and 'camping', glamping basically offers all the natural fun of camping, but with the luxuries, comforts, and conveniences of more pleasant and cozy accommodation like cabins, yurts, treehouses, and large tents. Glamping has a wonderful array of advantages to offer and can be enjoyed all over the world. If you're looking for luxury glamping in the UK, especially in the Dorset area, Mallinson is the name you need to know.
