About Wigwam® Holidays
Cosy cabins for unparalleled glamping getaways
At Wigwam® Holidays, our mission is simple: to provide 'great holidays in the great outdoors'. We think that everyone should be able to experience the joy of nature's wide open spaces. That's why we make it easy to plan an affordable, stress-free glamping holiday in some of the most beautiful places on earth.
Since launching in 2000, we've expanded to over 60 rural locations across Britain and beyond. Our handcrafted timber cabins set us apart, and our community of loyal 'Wigwammers' continues to grow.
The story behind the Wigwam® Cabins
Wigwam® Holidays launched in 2000, but our business of building eco-friendly, timber cabins dates back more than 20 years.
The original camping pod, our Wigwam® is the product of continued innovation and an ongoing dedication to quality craftsmanship.
How it all began
Our story begins in 1989 at Dorset's Hooke Park College. It was there that student Charles Gulland dreamed up the first of many designs for a sustainable lodge built from freshly felled trees and locally grown timber.
Award-winning designs in tow, Charles went on to serve as Designer in Residence at the Countryside Commission for Scotland. He worked on developing low-cost lodging for the country's long-distance footpaths, a project that first inspired his career in the camping sector.
Crafting the perfect cabin
In 1992, Charles founded All Round Buildings, constructing lodges out of rounded pieces of locally sourced timber. He also worked with Heriot Watt University students to develop unique designs that turned 'low value' timber into high quality buildings.
Noticing a niche in the market, Charles had an idea for an innovative 'camping pod'. Using steam-bent timber and larch boards, he designed the fully insulated, heated camping cabin that we now call the Wigwam®.
Glamping done right
As demand for these comfy camping cabins grew, Charles launched Wigwam® Holidays in 2000. Dedicated to providing 'great holidays in the great outdoors', we've since expanded to over 60 stunning rural locations across the UK.
We keep on innovating, but our commitment to quality craftsmanship hasn't wavered. Cosy in any season, our Wigwam® Cabins are perfect for glamping holidays all year round.
