Love Glamping? Great Reasons To Try Glamping In A Luxurious Swallowfields Spa Tent

When it comes to glamping there are so many options to choose from, if you’ve never done it before, you might be wondering what the best option is for you. From ready pitched canvas bell tents to luxury ensuite log cabins, the world of glamping continues to evolve, providing a huge variety of glamping options to choose from.

One of the great things about glamping, whatever kind of accommodation you choose, is that it allows you to get that bit closer to nature, helping you to focus on the simple pleasures that really matter, making time for yourself and those that matter, in a laid back and beautifully natural setting.

So whilst we don’t want to get too hung up on what does, or does not constitute glamping, we thought we’d highlight some of the ways a stay in a Spa Lodge at Swallowfields provides the ultimate luxury glamping experience.

Redescover the natural world

Real Canvas Tents Help You Connect With The Natural World

Love it or loathe it, one of the most magical things about camping is that it brings you so much closer to the natural world. Instead of being fully insulated from the outdoors with bricks and glass, sleeping inside a tent provides much less of a barrier.

You don’t need to open a window to hear the soothing sound of the dawn chorus at Swallowfields, as soon as you awake your senses will be enveloped by the sounds (and smells!) of nature all around you.

Unlike the flimsy modern nylon tents that you might associate with camping, our huge natural cotton canvas spa lodges help to regulate the internal temperature, providing an effective barrier from inclement weather but at the same time providing you with a far greater feeling of connection to the natural world.

Glamping Awakens Your Sense Of Adventure

Remember building dens as a child? Running around outdoors for hours on end feeling the sunshine on your face and the breeze at your back? There’s something about glamping that reignites that childish sense of adventure. Could it be the excitement of having a new location to discover? The sense of freedom that you get from stepping away from your usual daily routine?

Whatever it is, glamping at Swallowfields won’t fail to reawaken that sense of childish wonder, reigniting your sense of adventure as you get to know your spa lodge and explore the glamping site and beyond.

You’ll Experience The Joy Of Simple, Rustic Charm

Whether you plan to glamp on your own with your dog, with your partner, friends or even as a family, whilst Swallowfields is in no way basic, you’ll be enthralled by the simple rustic charm of the place.

Free of the need to dress for dinner or make sure your makeup is perfect, there’s just you and your companion(s) to focus on. There aren’t many places you can go to wearing a big comfy sweater and wellies and experience a luxury spa experience, and you’ll love the juxtaposition of simple rustic charm and absolute indulgent luxury.

…But You’ll Also Experience Luxury You Might Have Thought Impossible Outside Of A Fancy Hotel

Whilst glamping aims to provide you with an authentic back to basics way of existing for a few days, let’s face it, modern life is busy, stressful and tough, so whilst getting back to basics can be appealing, it’s important that you spend what little snatches of time you have in absolute comfort.

Who wants to worry about being cold and uncomfortable or having to traipse across a field to use the loo or have a shower? At Swallowfields, we’ve made sure that your Spa Lodge contains all the comforts and luxuries you’d expect from a great hotel, and much more besides!

Inside your Spa Lodge you’ll find beautiful velvet cushions and sumptuous bedding, ensuite facilities, a full kitchen, WiFi, flat screen TV and a coffee machine. But what you’re unlikely to get from your typical hotel stay is your very own cocktail bar, Malvern spring water and twinkling crystal glassware not to mention your own private hot tub, firepit and a wood burning stove.

Our spacious Spa Lodges allow you get that bit closer to nature without having to compromise on comfort and luxury and a stay with us is guaranteed to leave you feeling thoroughly relaxed and refreshed.

    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.
