Yes, I admit it, I actually let out an audible squeak this morning as I opened up my review copy of this gorgeous new Cool Camping book, just published by Punk Publishing. I couldn’t help myself… it is so sumptuously divine.
In true Cool Camping style the book is full of the most beautiful inviting photography that makes you feel like you are right there, like I could touch and feel those beautiful fabrics… I thought could even smell the smoky canvas of those stunning yurts.
What surprises me most is how many secluded little sites there are hidden away in the UK, each with such unique accommodation choices. Glamping Getaways features 50 of the loveliest. There are vintage caravans, gypsy caravans, Mongolian yurts, bell tents, tipis and beach huts. Each one is overflowing with lanterns and tea lights, wicker and wood, natural textiles and atmosphere. It’s a million miles from our usual lifestyles and yet so comforting and relaxing. I have never wanted to be somewhere more and I wonder if I will ever want to holiday any other way again.
This book is perfect for anyone who wants a relaxing break away from it all. The holiday destinations here are dripping with style and though these are breaks with a conscience because they have a minimal impact on the environment, really they are the ultimate in luxury… it’s just a more wholesome luxury that will nourish and soothe even the most tired of souls.
