We don’t so much do Glamping here at Purecamping, we prefer to use the term, Cosy Camping. We are not really that Glamorous 🙂 but we do certainly provide top quality tents and cabins, cosy duvets and pillows and warm blankets to our guests. We also have a really good local linen service that ensures that we have lovely fresh ironed linen for our guests. We try to maintain clean working facilites at all time but are sometimes under pressure at our busiest times in the the summer. We are upgrading our toilet and shower block facilities this year (2017) providing Easy Clean surfaces to make our job easier and your facilities even cleaner 🙂
But … I did come across this nice description of Glamping which we do actually match, so, its official, we are a glamping site!! :
“It isn’t just about getting away for a time to be closer to nature and under the stars. It is also about visiting hospitality venues that are equipped to give their guests a unique, and often quirky, outdoor experience.” from Inspired Camping
This is the latest addition to the Purecamping offering. We will have the this van pod parked up on one of the bell tent pads this summer with an annexe attached to give an extra room out front. It will be perfect for a couple who want a bit more comfort than a tent. It will have lighting and a heater … fancy ! and a lovey view out over the Shannon.
Weather is as usual our typical changeable Irish weather. So dress accordingly. Bring your camp blankets, crocks or wellies.
Johanna from the Eco-village in Cloughjordan will be here from Saturday serving soup each day and savoury and sweet pancakes. So that will save us some cooking over the few days. There will be chai available after lunch and some cake until it all runs out !
Bring easy bits to cook. Nice fresh bread, salad, pasta, noodles, crackers, fruit that type of thing.
If you have your own stove, bring it, so you can cook your noodles and make your tea at your tent 🙂
Please bring a drinking bottle and use our water here. We are trying to cut out plastic bottles from the site. No need for them. Our water is really nice and comes from a group scheme.
Your Santosa ticket includes your camping if you have your own tent. If you have booked one of ours, there is a fee.
If you have a food storage box, bring it and some freezer blocks. We have two fridge for perishables but all the other bits should be packed away to protect them from animals.
If anyone is interested in car pooling, please send an email to info@purecamping with your mobile number and location where you are travelling from. I can distribute this to the participants if you are happy with that. If you have no car and are looking for a lift, same deal, send an email and I will distribute and hopefully you will all be sorted.
I’ll add more as I think of it. Safe journey !!
