Ready Camp launched in Kingsbridge after a 15% increase in glamping bookings in 2014
Broadcaster and adventurer Ben Fogle took part in the launch of a new network of glamping tents called Ready Camp, at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at Birmingham’s NEC, which will be available for glamping in Devon.
The new glamping product is aimed at adventurous young families, and couples who don’t want the hassle of hitching up a tourer, pitching a tent or manoeuvring a motorhome, and is owned and run by The Camping and Caravanning Club.
Ben said: “Camping and caravanning holidays are perfect for families that have a healthy spirit of adventure. Adventures can be big or small – you needn’t necessarily cross Antarctica on foot, or the Sahara. There’s nothing more fun or healthy than exploring the natural environment, and camping puts this simple joy within reach of everyone.”
The Ready Camp tents can be found on 17 highly acclaimed Camping and Caravanning Club Sites including Slapton Sands, in Kingsbridge, Devon, and offer value-for-money holidays close to many of Britain’s most loved tourist spots.
The network allows holidaymakers to tour and explore Britain without the added expense of having to purchase their own camping equipment, safe in the knowledge they’re staying with a trusted campsite operator.
Stretching from Luss and Scone in Scotland, to Bala in Wales, Sandringham in East England, and Veryan in Cornwall, the campsites have been carefully selected to ensure there are plenty of local activities nearby for all the family to enjoy.
With accommodation for up to six people, the glamping units come fully furnished with a double bed, a triple bunk bed and single stow-away bed. There’s also a kitchen – with a fridge, microwave and hob – basic cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery, a sofa, dining table and chairs, a lockable storage cabinet, electric sockets and lights.
There’s no need for holidaymakers to fill their vehicles to the brim as all they’ll need to bring on a Ready Camp break are bedding and towels. Washroom facilities are available on all Camping and Caravanning Club Sites.
A holiday with Ready Camp costs from just £20 per tent, per night in low season. And it takes away the pressure of purchasing and transporting camping equipment and is the perfect way for families to try the popular pastime in a home-from-home environment.
The range of Camping and Caravanning Club Sites that offer Ready Camp glamping tents means holidaymakers will be able to tour around the UK and explore the best that Britain has to offer. It’s a great way to experience camping for the first time.
