5 reasons to have a family glamping holiday at Swallowfields

Family glamping holidays are becoming more and more popular. A family glamping holiday is the perfect middle ground between camping and staying in a holiday cottage or hotel.

You can enjoy your creature comforts, experience the wonder of nature and enjoy a wealth of family activities.

Here are five reasons to glamp at Swallowfields

1. It’s unique

There’s nothing that can compare with relaxing by a log fire in the middle of beautiful countryside. Cooking on a campfire is a wonderfully uplifting and enjoyable way of eating. And waking up to the soothing sounds of nature is the best way to start the day.  

With a Swallowfields family glamping holiday, you get all of this, plus all of the luxuries you associate with a high-end hotel. Our lodges include gold glass shower tiles, handmade basins, and even, drink cabinets. All of these stunning features have been created by artisan designers.

Look forward to waking up in a sumptuous bed, getting refreshed under a hot rainforest shower and stepping out in your own private space to watch the sun rise. Once you glamp with us once, there’s no going back.

2. It’s perfect for families

Family glamping holidays allow the whole family to stay together in a safe and friendly environment. 

Swallowfields is a car-free site with secure boundaries – ideal for keeping the little ones safe. There are fantastic play facilities (kids will love our Adventure Castle and Nature Hideout), as well as plenty of activities nearby.

Whether it’s canoeing, cycling, paddle boarding or something else – we can guarantee a glamping weekend with us will keep the entire family entertained. And when it’s time to kick back, everybody can relax in their very own private hot tub or spend the evening winding down in their comfy spa lodges. It’s the best way to chill out after a busy day.

3. Get some “me time”

Of course, you might also want a little time to yourself on a glamping weekend. And we’ve thought of that too – we offer a range of spa treatments.

Each lodge at Swallowfields has its own spa facilities, meaning you don’t have to book a slot or use shared facilities. Everything you need for a relaxing spa treatment is on hand, the moment you need it.

4. Location, location, location

If you’ve never experienced glamping in Malvern, you’re in for a treat. Maybe we’re biased, but in our humble opinion, Malvern is the most gorgeous location for family glamping holidays.

Glamping in Malvern gives you a wonderful base for countryside walks. Our site is located by the picture-postcard village of Castlemorton, right at the foot of the majestic Malvern Hills. Whichever direction you look, you’re surrounded by outstanding natural beauty. 

If you want to leave our site, the beautiful spa town of Malvern is less than ten miles away, and you can easily access Tewkesbury, Ledbury and Upton-upon-Severn.  

5. Enjoy the easy life

Whether you want a barbeque around the campfire, a luxury picnic for your hike or something extra special, we’ve got it covered. Our on-site shop is stocked with luxury essentials, fresh local produce and an array of treats.

When it comes to activities, we’ve thought of them all. You can hire bikes, or if you want to take things easy, our lodges come equipped with televisions, DVD players, free wi-fi and a range of board games to keep the family entertained, as standard.

    Malvern has long been associated with healthy living, ever since it originated as a spa town. Many benefits have been linked to its spring water, as well as people. Charles Darwin, Queen Victoria and Florence Nightingale are all said to have enjoyed its therapeutic qualities.

    It’s a legacy that’s lived right on to this day and one we wholeheartedly embrace. Not only are we fortunate to be nestled at the foot of the Malvern Hills, we live and breathe nature and its many benefits.
