Once coronavirus restrictions are slowly eased, our weary brains will be fired up with thoughts of finding an idyllic patch of countryside in which we can run free and replenish our senses.

For this very reason – glamping is sure to become this summer’s most sensible holiday plan.

Summer holidays 2021

Even thought the vaccination programme has been a resounding success in the United Kingdom – many other nations are trailing behind. The uneven pace of the international rollout and the emergence of new COVID-19 variants could mean that overseas travel to specific countries may remain off the cards for some time. 

With the logistical complications of foreign travel, “staycations” look to be a popular alternative for holiday makers. Glamping in particular is already benefitting massively from people wanting to escape their house for a vacation during the pandemic. The naturally socially distanced environment allows holidaymakers to worry less about the virus and relax in the sanctity of the great outdoors. 

Naturally isolated

Many Britons are awaiting both dosages of the COVID-19 vaccine, therefore contracting the illness from person to person is still a widespread concern. With no shared corridors or restaurants that you would see in a hotel and each tipi is sufficiently distanced – this makes glamping the perfect post-lockdown escape.

Glamping sites set log cabins, yurts and shepherd’s huts far apart, to ­create a feeling of privacy and being alone in the wild. Helpful, now that social distancing is all the rage. Thorough hygiene measures that include portioning off communal areas to facilitate social distancing, adding hand-washing stations, deep-cleaning lavatories, and sanitising communal furniture will ensure that your staycation is as safe as possible.

Salle Moor Hall Farm

In the lush two-acre meadow of our very own Salle Moor Hall Farm, you’ll find Indian Summer Tipis – a collection of just five traditional Sioux tipis well spread out around the meadow. Inside they’re beautifully furnished with double beds, rugs, coffee tables and rustic touches, such as vintage milk jugs or a banjo you can strum.

Campfires are very much encouraged – with a firepit and seating outside each tipi. There’s a separate campfire cooking area for all, with a tripod, grill and hanging skillet – therefore allowing you to socially distance and mix only with those within your bubble.

Bring a bike or hire them from the little cycle shop inside the old trail-side railway station and explore the beautiful rural landscape.
