Fancy a Glamping Birthday Weekend, Complete with Hot-Tub and Luxury Yurts?
Bringing friends and family together for a weekend’s glamping is becoming an increasingly popular way to celebrate those milestone birthdays. If you’ve got a special birthday coming up, here’s why we think a glamping party is the way to go for a top-notch weekend.
Time to Connect
With our busy, fast-paced, lifestyles, it can be hard to find the time to step away from the demands of daily life, to spend time truly connecting with our friends and family. It gets even more tricky as we get older, have children, move to different parts of the country or work abroad. Staying in touch with those we care about is a challenge! And it’s all too easy to reminisce about the good old days of unhurried weekends, festival shenanigans and lazy holidays spent hanging out with our old mates.
If you’ve got a big birthday coming up, it’s the perfect opportunity to get everyone back together. And why settle for one evening when you can spend the whole weekend catching up? A weekend celebration gives you the chance to slow-down and properly re-connect with family and friends without feeling rushed and having to flit from person to person.
At Plush Tents, an exclusive hire weekend means that you and your posse get to take over the whole site from Friday afternoon until Monday morning. This gives plenty of time to be all together enjoying the beautiful outdoors, eating together, hanging out in the hot tub and chatting around the fire.
A communal bonfire provides a focal point for the evening and a cosy place to gather. There’s surely nothing more relaxing, soothing and soul lifting than sitting by a roaring fire. After-all, humans are wired to gather around fires at night, it’s in our DNA. Fires also help us to be fully present, engaging all of our senses and keeping us focused on enjoying the good company (and off of our phones!).
Back-to-Nature, Glamping Style!
Love the idea, but not sure that it will be everyone’s cup of tea? You can re-assure any camping-adverse members of your party that this is glamping, not camping! And high-end glamping at that! No leaky, cold tents and grim toilets here! You don’t need to turn all Bear Grylls to have an amazing outdoor experience (although if that’s what floats your boat, then we won’t stop you!). Glamping combines five-star amenities with a back-to-nature experience. It’s where luxury meets simplicity. The creature comforts of a hotel weekend but with the back-to-nature experience.
It’s also a one-of-a-kind experience. Lot’s of glamping venues have some pretty unique accommodation and, we’re biased of course, but we definitely think ours is the best! Each of our hand-crafted Mongolian Yurts is totally unique, furnished with vintage furniture, hand carved beds and antique or salvaged wood burners. With Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy towels and toasty fires this is 5 star accommodation in the woods! And our heated, cosy shower and toilet block has four reliably hot, gas-powered showers .
A good celebration centres around good food and good company. Our treehouse kitchen features two gas burning stoves and ovens, a catering sink and an ice box refrigerator, perfect for cooking up big shared meals. Alternatively, you don’t have to lift a finger (or spoon). We have a wide range of caterers that we can recommend, from street food vans to hog roasts and fine dining.
Fun For Big Kids, Little Kids, and Everyone in Between!
When you’re getting a group with mixed ages together, you need to make sure that there’s something in it for everyone, and a glamping experience really does that well. Children take to glamping like fish to water and our site is designed for them to roam free and enjoy the delights of our beautiful woodland. With so much space to explore including a teepee and a play area, chances are you might not see much of them until it’s time to roast marshmallows over the fire. They can enjoy a weekend-long play date with friends, catch up with their cousins and with any luck will sleep soundly, giving adults some quality time around the fire at night.
Older kids and teens tend to love it too. There’s lots of cool spaces to hang out in, including the hammocks and the big communal yurt where they can watch films and play games. The individual yurts have LED, colour changing, mood lightening and sound systems for plugging i-pods in, so they can even create their own special chill-out area.
What about Grandad? Or Great Aunt Jean…or Uncle Bob?! Fear not, at Plush Yurts older members of the party are well catered for and you can reassure them that this is luxury camping, with all the creature comforts provided. Our yurts are cosy with their individual stoves (which our staff will help light), the beds are super comfortable and there’s tea and coffee on tap. Grandparents can kick back and enjoy watching the little ones play, enjoy the peace and tranquillity of our beautiful site and catch up with other family members around the fire.
What if it Rains?!
We hope you’ll choose to celebrate your birthday with us, but wherever you go for your glamping weekend, make sure that there is ample indoor space where your guests can gather should the British weather be unkind! At Plush Tents, the show goes on come rain or shine. Our luxury eco-yurts keep you snug and dry and our huge communal yurt, “Home yurt” has a capacity of 120 ensuring that you can all get together under one roof. Home yurt is the hub of Plush Tents with its sumptuous chesterfield sofas, cinema projector, sound system and roaring fire. It also leads to a covered area outside so whatever the weather you can host your guests for hours of fun.
