Glamping Guide

HETAS, in partnership with the Glamping Association, has produced guidance for site owners who have wood burning or mutlifuel stoves on their sites.

Growing Market

In recent years the UK has seen a growth in the new of glamping sites as people seek the comforts of a hotel while seeking nature-based experiences. More than 17 million camping and caravanning trips were taken by UK adults in 2016, a figure which is expected to rise to more than 21 million in 2020.

Such holidays include a range of options from luxury yurts and safari tents, shepherd’s huts, tiny two-berth mini and large luxury caravans, sophisticated motorhomes and holiday lodges.

Many of these types of accommodation will include a wood burning or multifuel stove. HETAS is the national organisation working for consumer safety and the wider public interest in safe, efficient and environmentally responsible use of biomass and other solid fuels and we want to make sure that anyone visiting a glamping site can do so safely.
