Can’t wait to get glamping? Many of our hostels have many quirky accommodation options to make the most of this season, with camping pods, bell tents, Landpods, Airstreams, cabins, tipis and more landing in our gardens and grounds. If you enjoy camping but prefer a few home comforts – or just fancy a new experience outdoors – our glamping alternatives are for you. Take a look…

Camping pods 

Get a view of the stars and a great night’s sleep with our camping pods. If you’ve stayed in one of these beauties before, you’ll know they’re like domed wooden tents and are well protected from the elements. The large pods have a double futon and two single beds, so you don’t even have to bring a camping mat or sleeping bag. With heating inside and a decking area outside, add some luxury to your YHA glamping adventure.

Bell tents 

Want that festival feeling in the grounds of a hostel? Our bell tents are part of our glamping experience and offer a spacious environment to chill out in. They can sleep four people and are kitted out with a double bed, two single beds and bedding. You’ll also find beanbags to relax on, eco-friendly lighting and stylish bohemian furniture. All bell tents include a BBQ fire pit to keep you extra cosy.

Sense of adventure? Check. Close to nature? Check. Home comforts? Naturally. Think of them as a cosy cross between a camping pod and a standard canvas tent. On legs!  The Landpods have double-insulated roofs – making them fully waterproof – LED lighting, windows and lockable doors. Best of all, however, the roof can be half-opened, unveiling your temporary home to the elements. The perfect sport for stargazing.

If you fancy sleeping under the stars but with protection from all the elements, then an Airstream getaway is for you. Comfortably sleeping two or three people, these quirky caravans include pillows, bedding, heating, USB charging points, storage, lighting, space to sit and relax and much more. You’ll also have a table and chairs – perfect for dining al fresco in the warmer months.
