'For older children, on request, Glampotel can set up a separate bell tent so that your kids can be close by but with their own space'

Glampotel, Purbeck Hills, Dorset

The six canvas cottages at Glampotel in Dorset are situated in the peaceful Rowlands Wait Touring park and come complete with en suite bathrooms. The accommodation is perfectly situated so that guests can get all the privacy they want and still enjoy the surrounding nature. I love the hardwood floors and wood burning stove and it’s always nice to have an ensuite bathroom which comes with a composting loo. Beds are decked out with luxury Egyptian sheets and duvets and all important fluffy towels. glampotel.com

Comfort Under Canvass

Getting away from it all to a great camp site is quite often the perfect break for all the family. There is nothing like a holiday under canvas, where life can be simple and stress free, and the UK has fantastic countryside to explore, with wide sandy beaches, gorgeous hill views and ancient forests often a short walk or bike ride away. Throw in that added bit of luxury and wow-factor which glamping can provide, and you will get all the fun of traditional camping mixed with a truly memorable experience. Family travel expert, Nichola West, rounds up ten of the best sites for glamping with the kids in the UK >>
