It's up to you how 'back to basics' you want to go, and this is the joy of the Bell Tent.

A Scottish bothy - traditionally - was a small house in a remote location; a basic shelter which was left unlocked and available for anyone to use who was in need of a roof and a bed for the night.

Most will accept your furry friend (talking dogs not husbands here) and all usually have basic facilities, so don't fear, you won't be heading off into the forest with a spade, a loo roll and a red face.

Glamping is a marvellous invention. It is for those of us who want all the benefits of a wonderful outdoor experience, but don't want the palava of dragging a tent across a field, playing cats cradle with ropes and poles and bringing their own saucepans from home. Glamping is genius: you are essentially camping, but everything is already set up - and you get some insulation from the chilly weather. Glamping pods are great; you are still very much living outdoors, but in the evening you have a warm place to lay your head without the flapping canvas. Most pods are small, cosy and wooden, and often domed - like the top half of an old fashioned gypsy wagon, without the wheels. They're awesome, functional and well equipped, and depending on high end you go, you might end up with a hot tub, a king sized bed and allsorts. Choose the right one to suit your holiday and enjoy a luxury version of camping!
