“Glamping really is for all seasons!”

Jugglingonrollerskates went glamping in our Outstanding Lodge at Concierge Camping during a frosty weekend in late November. “It was like a cross between a Winter Wonderland and African Safari!!”

“Concierge Camping is a caravan and motor home site located just outside Bosham near Chichester. The site offers luxury Glamping accommodation in the form of four Safari style Lodges which we were lucky enough to visit during a frosty weekend in late November.

The safari style Lodges are made by pioneering camping and lodge accommodation provider, Outstanding Tents. They offer unique structures which allow you to sleep under canvas and feel close to the outdoors whilst maintaining a high level of comfort throughout the living space.

Entering the private enclosed space via a cute wooden gate our lodge was tastefully screened by a border of fern trees allowing a sense privacy and seclusion. Coming in from outdoors the first thing you notice is that the lodge is incredibly warm and cosy, despite being made of canvas. This is due to the underfloor heating that runs throughout the accommodation combined with a simple to use thermostat system, allowing a balmy temperature of around 20 degrees to be maintained day and night.

Through the front door you enter a spacious kitchen and dining space. As a Winter Glamping venue we found cooking as straight forward as it would be in your own home… with a few additional luxuries. For those wanting a more traditional camping experience the bbq allows for outdoor cooking in warmer months. The dining area is again spacious and well suited for families. The dining table comfortably seats six and doubles as a great social space ideal for family board game sessions. There is also a large sofa which offers comfortable seating for post dinner movies thanks to the flat screen TV.

Our lodge contained three bedrooms which could comfortable sleep six. Downstairs is a large double bedroom with another flat screen TV. Upstairs are two twin rooms ideal for older children. The twin rooms have an alpine feel with the beds being tucked under the sloping roof area. There is also a large landing area which the children used as an additional play space and disco area! The girls loved the colour changing lights which illuminated the floor boards. Please note that the stairs are very steep and despite having a stair gate at the top are not ideal for toddlers or the elderly.

The lodge comes with it’s own family bathroom with heated towel rail, power shower (with a seat!) and Ratham Estate branded toiletries. Towels and linen are also provided for the duration of your stay. Again, it’s the provision of these little extras like generous shampoo and conditioner dispensers, that make the lodge stand out as luxury Glamping accommodation.

We loved our unique African Safari in a Winter Wonderland so much so that we’re keen to revisit in the Summer!”
