Glamping!

My Senior Section unit would like to go Glamping for their Spring/Summer residential. This is not my area of expertise, I'm used to camping. We did an indoor residential and I think they enjoyed a few more of the creature comforts.

So any suggestions of campsites that have tented villages or pods? The only option I have for them at the moment is Blackwell court. We're Birmingham based, can travel but would be public transport unless parents were taking them.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Brokenhurst train station is near foxlease and there is a bus from the station which picks up on the station four court and stops at the end of the foxlease drive.

If your stuck for ideas for decoration, activities etc too then have a look at Glamping on Pinterest as there's tons of ideas on there.

May perhaps sound like a silly question but is glamping considered camping or holidaying? Which license would be required? It's not really camping as they have electricity and heat and they don't need much looking after. Neither are they indoors...
Interested on your thoughts?

I'm in the process of deciding if someone taking brownies to a tented village should be classed as camping or holidaying, so I'd be interested to know what other people have gone with. I'm inclined to say camping, but it couldn't be used for Going Away with...qual as you wouldn't have to do the care of tents....

You only need the indoor licence to stay in these :)

Exactly, If you don't need to take care of tents (and therefore couldn't do that module of the going away scheme there) that obviously shows that it you don't need to have that module to take girls there!

I stayed in the teepees at paccar scout camp with my Brownies last year and I don't have the camping module on my license.
