We went camping a few years ago and had an amazing weekend – we barbecued, played family rounders, had a couple of great trips out, had water fights and in general, had some good old fashioned family fun. It was so much fun and amazing value for money considering it cost less than £40 for all of us to over the long Bank Holiday weekend.
The one thing I wasn’t keen on though were the nights and I can honestly say that I got hardly any sleep between two wriggling children, a snoring husband whose snores seem to be magnified 10x in the great outdoors and various trips to the toilets across a field with children who rather inconveniently didn’t need a wee when the other one did.
The lack of sleep is the reason why we haven’t actually been camping since despite the children’s best efforts to persuade me. They’re desperate to go camping again but the thought of the long uncomfortable nights tossing and turning on an uncomfortable air bed are putting me off.
One thing I would consider though is going ‘glamping’ which seems to be a more luxurious version of camping – some of the pictures I’ve seen of people glamping have made it look nicer than actual hotels that I’ve stayed in before!
It seems that by glamping instead of camping, I’ll get to put a tick in the ‘comfort’ box and the kids can still tick the ‘fun outdoors’ and ‘adventure’ boxes.
And as luck would have it, the love people from Get The Label have just told me about their competition to win a glamping break with them along with a £75 Get The Label voucher and a glamping survival kit. All you need to do is fill in your details on their competition page here.
Disclosure: I’ll be receiving a glamping survival kit for sharing this competition with you all.
