2019 will be our 11th season here at Cosy Under Canvas, so as far as Glamping in the UK goes we are old timers. In fact when we began back in 2009 ‘Glamping’ wasn’t even a word!
Definition of Glamping
A form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping: glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries.
Blend of glamorous and camping

Personally, we love camping in all it’s forms and with three children of our own we understand that sometimes you just need to ‘make life easy’. Over the last 9 years we have listened to our guests and thanks to their comments we have created a unique eco Glamping experience that includes all the fun of life outdoors without the hassle.
It's camping at it's best, camping without having to cram the car full, camping without having to set up. Time and time again we are told that we have ‘thought of everything’ and that really is the idea. We don’t want you to have to bring anything with you, except your clothes and some food, and we can even provide the food if you’d rather not shop before you arrive.
We’ll leave you in peace to enjoy your holiday but as our home is just up the lane (only a 3 minute walk) we are always on hand for assistance with firelighting, advice about activities or even the loan of a pair of wellies. Knock on the door, leave us a note or give one of our kids a message and we’ll be right there to answer any questions we can.
Our kids are involved too, Theo has his own fleet of bikes for hire so do ask for him if you'd like to pedal around the area. He's a keen mountain biker himself so has got lots of routes up his sleeve and we can let you know which involve a stop for a pub lunch! Jake and his legendary crepes make an appearance most weekends and holidays when the site is fully booked so look out for the blackboard advertising his tasty crepes and shakes, plus we make coffee for the grown ups too!
We are proud of what we have created here in our small but lovely woodland and we sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay with us. Do let us have any feedback and then please go home and spread the word.
We look forward to meeting you. Thank you.
Emma, Dan, Theo 16, Jake 14, Clara 6 plus Lottie and Coco the dogs
