How wholesale bedding can add luxury to camping
The Daily Mail's Emma Kennedy admits that she has never been a fan of camping since an unpleasant holiday experience at the age of 13, while her father burnt their tent as he believed it was the source of their vacation woes.
However, today little luxuries like real beds covered with wholesale bedding, hot running water and sturdy shelter are showing that camping has changed.
Ms Kennedy and her friend found this out when they went to stay at the Holidays Deerpark Cabins south of Liskeard.
She described the cabin as being like a miniature version of a Grand Designs creation, complete with large windows, a pitched roof, veranda and hot tub.
"Inside there was a wood-burning stove, a TV and DVD, a Wii, en suite bathrooms for both bedrooms, power shower, a bathtub overlooking the lake, a gleaming top-of-the-range kitchen and a three-piece suite and carpet," Ms Kennedy added.
Camping is changing and it would appear that guests are now happy to be greeted with traditional hotel supplies on their arrival.
Nicola Iseard, in an article for the Guardian, recently said she enjoyed sleeping in quality bedding while camping at Osbaston House Farm in Leicestershire.
