Well that headline surely got your attention! Of course, we’re talking about glamping at the Dimpsey hut. We’ve had some wonderful visitors over 2016, and we weren’t surprised by the news this week that there has had a huge surge in people partaking in this outdoor trend.
Apparently four in ten Britons spent a night in a tent, hut, yurt or caravan in 2016 as more than 17 million trips were taken.
We’ve always believed at Dimpsey that there is much to be gained from taking time out and reconnecting with each other, and of course we adore our idyllic shepherd’s hut located at the foot of the Blackdown Hills. Everyone who visits has a unique experience, but the feedback is always that our guests felt rejuvenated, refreshed and revived. That’s our aim – to give you a true glamping experience that you won’t forget.
The UK stats stated this week read:
- The total number of trips taken is expected to rise to 17.9 million in 2017
- The biggest reason for the camping trip was ‘getting away from it all’
- One in seven relish the chance of being away from wi-fi or internet
With our cosy bed, fire pit, hot tub, and log burner the Dimpsey hut is the perfect place to get away from it all. According to our recent reviews from Dimpsey visitors, people really appreciated the time together to relax and reconnect and we are so proud of all the wonderful testimonials we have received so far. There is something so very peaceful about being in the Dimpsey hut, and yet there are also the options for local walks and pub lunches, trips to the coast and towns for a bit of gentle exercise. It’s the best of both worlds.
We’re delighted to be part of the growing glamping trend. If we can continue to offer people the change to disengage from their hectic lives and to take some quality time out in luxurious surroundings through 2017 and beyond, then we’ve achieved our goal.
Happy 2017 to you all!
