With the weather warming up (finally), it’s time to go outdoors.
May is the perfect month to venture out and go camping – or in our case, glamping. An alternative break in yurts combines the best of camping with the best of glamping. Yurt camping in the UK embraces being close to nature in a tent whilst also allowing for the luxury of real beds and log burning stoves. Like camping, glamping still requires a bit of preparation and packing. Read on for a few tips on how to prep so that you can make the most of yurt camping in the East Midlands countryside.
May-time in the UK is delightful.
The countryside is full of Spring things. Blossom, sweet smells, baby farm animals, and the (occasional) appearance of the sun. The temperature is increasing, and the days are getting longer. This makes May an ideal month to go glamping. Right now at Country Bumpkin Yurts, glamping guests get to meet the calves of the spectacular highland cows and the lively piglets of Waterloo Cottage Farm. What more could you want?
Yurts are our favourite glamping tent (obviously). We love the round shape of these Mongolian tents. It is not only aesthetically pleasing but conducive to balance and harmony. A yurt adventure remains closer to the experience of camping than other glamping accommodation. You can immerse yourself in the countryside around you that bit more. The light comes in, the sounds of the birds will filter through, and the smell of the logs burning on the stove is deeply nostalgic.
To make the most of Yurt Camping in May you will need to pack a few specific items.
Wellies are essential. It has been a very wet winter in the UK and April showers turned into April downpours, so farm life can be muddy. This simply adds to the fun if you are prepared with the right footwear. And don’t forget your rain-coat for the inevitable rain! The mesmerising sound of rain on a canvas roof is well worth the mud. It is my favourite sound.
Packing layers of clothes is another key to glamping success. When the sun shines in May it is lovely and warm, but as soon as the sun goes in it can go cold quickly. I’m a fan of zipped jumpers as they are easy to undo (or do up) in the changing weather. The temperature drops significantly at night too. We’re still in single figure degrees at night time. Pack warm pyjamas and a blanket for your trip. At our glamping site, we provide spare blankets in each yurt, but not all places do so check the website of your destination when packing.
With its spring freshness and warmer, longer days, May is a wonderful month to go glamping. Yurt camping in the UK is a great experience, accessible to all ages and levels of outdoor lovers. If you remember your wellies, warm PJs and layered clothing, you will be unstoppable on your glamping adventure.
