Camping for softies

GlampingGlamping is, apparently, the way to go.  No, I'd never heard of it either but apparently it means glamorous camping.  It's all the rage amongst those who want experience the great outdoors without the leaky tent and soggy sleeping bag.

And now you can glamp (is that a proper word?) right here in Southern Wales.  Cwmcarn Forest near Caerphilly is already well known for the superb mountain biking trails and spectacular views from the scenic mountain drive but are now hitting the headlines with their brand new camping pods.

These timber pods are ideal if you like the idea of camping but also like life's little comforts.  The pods come equipped with a heater, a light and electric.  They are ideal for a short break without the hassle of packing away a wet tent.

Fancy trying them out?  Take a look at their website and don't forget to tell us how you got on.
