I’m going glamping this summer. It’s like camping, only more glamorous. Glamping.

I’ve been persuading the camping-phobic (self-proclaimed) Northern Love Machine that it’s going to be fun. He’s yet to be convinced.

Our holiday involves staying at the 5 star beach location that is Trevella Park campsite in Crantock, Newquay. That’s in Cornwall, for any of you not familiar with the South West.

The campsite has a heated swimming pool, play areas, lakes full of fish and is in a stunning setting with the choice of two beaches. There’s even crazy golf. Still, the husband is yet to be convinced.

He doesn’t share my memories of camping as a child, you see. Those happy days, being at one with nature, playing outside until dusk settles, eating barbecued sausages every night and waking up to the smell of fresh dew on the outside of the tent. For him, camping sounds like a lot of hard work, especially with a toddler.

Except it’s not camping. It’s glamping.

This means we don’t have to put a tent up. Instead, we’ll arrive to a Safari Tent, complete with spacious bedrooms, comfy beds with duvets, real furniture and a proper kitchen with a fridge. There’s also wooden decking with an outdoor dining set. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain.

We’re going to be reviewing Trevella Park while we’re there. Which means that we don’t actually have to pay for the holiday. That said, this is EXACTLY the type of holiday I’d be more than happy to fork out for in the future. Providing my marriage remains intact.

If this is something that appeals to you, I have a bit of an exclusive offer for you. The lovely people at Trevella Park have arranged for readers of this here blog to get 10% off all glamping, mobile homes and touring pitches there, for holidays taken between 27th April to 28th May 2012, 11th June to 14th June 2012 and 3rd September to 29th Octover 2012.

To claim the offer, all you need to do is enter the code MUMS10 when booking your holiday on the Trevella Park website.

And remember. It’s not camping. It’s glamping. (Unless you like putting up your own tent. In which case camping is on offer too.)


This is not an advertorial. I have been paid no money to write this post. I’m simply excited about our review holiday in the summer and wish to share the love. Consider the love well and truly shared.
