Glamping in Kent
Sleep under the stars…
Kent is the ultimate destination to enjoy luxury camping. With its unspoilt countryside, amazing coast and special landscapes from the cliffs to the downs, Kent offers some of the best glamping sites and unique experiences in the UK. Many glamping sites are set within secluded or unusual locations and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Where else could you wake up in the treetops or overlooking elephants and cheetahs?
Medieval Knight’s Glamping at Leeds Castle
Leeds Castle offers families and couples the chance to escape to the countryside for a glamorous camping holiday with a difference. Eight splendid striped pavilions based on a Medieval design, form a 'village' on the one-acre castle vineyard. Enjoy the luxury of a four poster bed, warming wood burning stove, crisp cotton bedding and snug furry throws. For those wishing to experience lazy summer evenings outdoors and eat as Medieval knights would have done before battle, use of the cast iron griddle over an open fire pit is included in your stay.
