We got our tent, or Alachigh to give it its proper name, from the great guys here, who came and erected and dismantled the whole thing in a matter of hours. It was an absolute bargain as they decorated the inside with throw rugs, bed rolls, scatter cushions and bunting and all we payed extra for was a £10 tea light chandelier (bottom picture) which looked lovely once the sun went down.
The whole weekend involved a whole lot of birthday cake, long walks in the rain, cups of tea and the odd playing card based drinking game. Fortunately it also stopped raining for a few hours giving us the perfect excuse to barbecue!
The glamour of glamping has certainly converted me from a previously unhappy camper and I would love to repeat the experience all over again at a festival this summer. There's only one problem - now I have experienced the luxury of the Alachigh I could never go back to a two man tent.
It also got me thinking about the perfect festival fashion - so watch this space for trend ideas coming soon!
