Ready Camp is part of The Camping and Caravanning Club, which was established in 1901. The philosophy behind Ready Camp is to provide hassle free glamping holidays – whether you’re an experienced camper or have never spent a night under canvas. Glamping gives you all the outdoor feel of being under canvas, but gives you plenty of little luxuries to make life more enjoyable!
You’ll find 48 individual Ready Camp campsites across the UK – from the Scottish Highlands down to the stunning Cornish beaches. Choose from beautiful countryside retreats, campsites conveniently located near stunning towns and cities, remote beaches or a site close to plenty of family friendly days out. By the way, you’ll find sites close to popular attractions, such as Alton Towers, Chessington, Drayton Manor and Peppa Pig World, which are sure to keep everyone in the family happy and entertained! Whatever you’re looking for in a glamping holiday, Ready Camp is sure to have a site to suit your needs.
Ready Camp prides itself on providing easy camping – ‘hassle free’ is definitely their catchphrase! Every Ready Camp tent is pre-erected, decked, furnished and powered. So there’s no need for the type of packing you’d normally expect to have to do on a camping holiday. Best of all, you’ll only pay one price per tent. The price covers your whole stay, with a maximum occupancy of 6 (with 4 adults maximum in the party) and there are no hidden charges.
Each campsite has its own unique facilities and activities, but as standard you’ll have full access to campsite facilities (including Wi-Fi!). Tents are self-catering, with pretty little kitchens allowing you to cook up a storm. A fridge-freezer, 2-ring hob, microwave, kettle and toaster, alongside all the utensils and cutlery you’ll need means the only thing missing is quite literally the kitchen sink! Enjoy a meal at the dining table or relax on the sofa before retiring to one of the two bedrooms, complete with either a double bed or bunk beds and black out blinds to help with lie-ins.
Ready Camp also have onsite teams to support you during your stay and just won the award for ‘Best holiday rental for families’ from Family Traveller.
Thrill seekers will love Alton glamping site, as it’s situated less than a mile from the famous Alton Towers theme park. But if rollercoasters aren’t your thing, the site is perfectly placed to explore the stunning Peak District National Park.
This lovely site is full of wide open spaces and a children’s play area for the kids to burn off steam in. Drayton Manor theme park is right next door, or why not explore the 150 acres of woodland at the nearby National Arboretum?
There are few better English holidays than those spent near a fantastic Cornish beach! Bude glamping site is close to the fantastic sandy beaches of Bude and Crackington Haven, with plenty of surfing and rock pools galore.
The stunning Lake District offers gorgeous scenery at every turn, with plenty to keep the kids busy. Take to the water on a boat trip, or try your hand at some active watersports. Kids will love The World of Beatrix Potter and the fantastic Aquarium of the Lakes.
There can be few more glamorous places to ‘glamp’ than in the grounds of the stunning 18th century Culzean Castle in Ayrshire! Set in its own Country Park, the site is packed with dramatic views and over 3 miles of stunning coastline to explore.
On the fringes of Snowdonia National Park, you can’t get much closer to nature than the stunning glamping site of Bala.
