Pentreclawdd Glamping

I, like a lot of people, can not do the whole camping thing. Waking up in a freezing cold tent with no electricity and embracing the "great outdoors", is not my idea of fun. I do, however, enjoy the idea of "glamping" (glam-camping). 

So when my dad bought my boyfriend, Jack, a night away at some glamping pods near us for his birthday, I was really excited to see what it would be like. 

The pods were around 30 minutes from us, based just off the A5 near Oswestry. We picked up a takeaway from the town centre and then headed to the pods. We arrived around 8:30pm to find we were the only people staying there that night, so it was really peaceful.

There are five pods in total on site, two small ones, two large ones and one luxury one. Prices start from £35 a night to £50 a night. We stayed in the luxury pod which had a double bed, a tv and a kettle inside. There was also a bench and umbrella directly outside our pod, with the option to have our own bbq too. The shower and toilet block was right around the corner with a kitchen to wash up in too - we had everything we needed.

We had such a lovely night, it was so nice to just get away for a night from the busy world. 

Prosecco was involved, of course.
We woke up at around 8am in the morning, the sun was shining and I felt so relaxed. We cooked a full english breakfast using a disposable BBQ and a camping stove, which was a bit challenging to say the least. 

I would really recommend Pentreclawdd glamping to anyone who wants a night away in the countryside without having to actually camp! The owner, Emma, is so lovely as well and will do anything to make your stay just perfect.

I had also booked a couples massage for us to have on the Saturday daytime at 'Pretty Vintage Holistic and Spiritual Therapies' which was just outside Oswestry. It was £70 for both of us to have a full body massage lasting over an hour, which I thought was really good value for money. It was so nice to continue the relaxation and the ladies were so lovely.

On the way, we stumbled across a gorgeous Marston's pub by the canal. It had such a lovely beer garden, all separated into different sections. We only stopped for a drink but the food selection was amazing, we will definitely be returning again to eat. 

There was also the cutest boat shop behind the beer garden with a lady hand painting items to sell. I love finding places like this that really have there own character! 

Thank you so much for reading, I really hope you enjoyed!
Have you ever been glamping or planning on going?



  1. I have always wanted to go glamping and seeing this just makes me want to go even more!

    1. I'm so not a fan of camping so it's a great alternative! Thanks for your commentšŸ˜˜

  2. I love the idea of this! What would it be like staying there in winter? Xx

    1. It was so good! I think it would be fine, there was a little fan heater provided which was good and they seemed pretty well insulated! xx
