8 ways to go glamping in style

Modern tricks for styling the great outdoors.

Hello Campers! If the old Hi-de-Hi! greeting fills you with dread, then fear no more… this season’s outdoor kit is more pimped-up Glasto than worn-out Yellowcoat.

Let’s start with a night under canvas – but with none of that ‘fumbling
with a torch’ that we endured in the past. Here, two large Fisherman buoy pendants will light the way back to your sleeping bay, regardless of whether you got a bit too messy grooving to the Foo Fighters at the front of the stage.
Deluxe tent, Bell Tent UK; Oliver beds, Feather & Black; and Safari chair, French Connection Home.

And you can forget about tree hugging – we’d rather make like a jungle VIP and swing from the branches instead.
Mini Nestrest, Dedon; Cacoon hanging chair, Hang-in-Out; and Tree swing, The Oak & Rope Garden at notonthehighstreet.com.

Time for some more light refreshments?
Diamond hanging planter, Raw Dezign; and hanging basket, In Garden.

Hit the road in our Airstream camper, with lightweight furniture that can be unloaded whenever and wherever we like.
Nest sofa, Cane-line; Navajo armchair and footstool, John Lewis; and outdoor pouffes, Nordic House.

Time for a wash-and-brush-up, but no way are we stepping a foot inside. It’s still the outdoor life for us…
Garden shower, Bloomingville at Plümo; Bateau bath, Brissi; and beach towels, Missoni Home at Amara.

Grow your own sides, then stack up the supplies for the outdoor feast.
Plant stands
, Next Home; and wood-fired oven, Lakeland.

Eating out doesn’t get more stylish.
Hanging chair, Fermob at Barbed; Strut table, Blu Dot at Heal’s; Vegetal chairs, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra; Raviolo chair, Ron Arad for Magis at Aram Store; and Fun sign, Gods Own Junkyard.

Fun in the sun? We’ve got it made
