6 Incredible Winter Glamping Getaways

Typically, January is not the most beloved time of year. It’s cold, Christmas is over, and it can feel like spring will never arrive. 

But winter is not all bad - some people even prefer it! Skiers, curlers, people that like wearing hats, and certain kinds of northerly migrating birds, all relish the colder months with zeal and enthusiasm. 

And for good reason too! The winter comes with a beauty and depth the warmer months don’t always match. Dark starry skies, frost bitten landscapes, and the chance for every child's favourite ammunition - snow. 

To help you enjoy the magic of winter, we’ve put together a list of six sites that are perfect for a fresh escape to the great outdoors. 


1. Wigwam Holidays Glenlivet, Cairngorms National Park

Like something from the imaginings of an eccentric author, Wigwam Holidays Glenlivet sits at the dusty end of a highstreet, in the country's second highest town - Tomintoul. The town rests in the Cairngorms national park, giving it stunning views in all directions and making it one of the snowiest places in the UK. Within an hours drive from almost all Scottish skiing, Wigwam Holidays Glenlivet has got to be a consideration for a great winter escape. 

Shulista Croft Isle of SKye Winter Glamping

2. Wigwam Holidays Shulista Croft, Isle Of Skye

Skye is famous for its jaw dropping landscapes, stunning beaches and mythical fairy tales. It’s also an Island where you have a chance of seeing the Northern Lights. We can’t guarantee the Aurora Borealis, but we can guarantee a cosy little Wigwam with incredible views. Wigwam Holidays Shulista Croft will not disappoint. 


3. Wigwam Holidays Hafren, Powys

Wigwam Holidays Hafren is nestled in the rolling hills of Powys, mid Wales. Stunning country views, dark starry skies, and cabins available with hot tubs make this site an excellent choice for a winter break. Enjoy a crisp walk before warming up in the hot tub with a dark sky view and something tasty to drink.

4. Wigwam Holidays Aberystwyth, Powys

Elevated views over the Atlantic ocean are good at any time of the year, but there's something about adding winter skies and cold air to the picture that makes them extra special.

bodrugan winter getaway

5. Wigwam Holidays Bodrugan, Cornwall

Like many of our sites, Wigwam Holidays Bodrugan sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and sometimes there’s really not much more to say.  other than it’s right next to the Cornish coast, the beautiful seaside town of Mevigissie and there’s a heated indoor pool - perfect for warming up after a winter walk on the beach!
