Why camp when there are B&Bs?
One writer has questioned why anyone would ever wish to spend their holiday in a tent when the UK has such a plethora of bed and breakfasts to choose from.
Indeed, the draw of snuggling into comfortable wholesale bedding at the end of a busy day, or tucking into a hearty breakfast prepared by an experienced chef at the start of one, could beat roughing it under canvas.
Louisa Pearson, in an article for Scotland on Sunday, asks: "Why on earth would people choose to do this when they could just stay in a B&B?"
However, in spite of this, "glamping" is something that appears to be becoming increasingly popular, as Ms Pearson acknowledges this may be linked to more people going to music festivals.
Glamping is a more upmarket camping experience where people can bed down in a hired tipi or part-wooden tent.
However, with one Guardian writer recently claiming that the bed at a hotel she stayed at recently was the most comfortable she had experienced all year, camping may still have some way to go.
