Hoteliers and caterers who need more room than their brick-and-mortar premises can benefit from the latest lines on the "glamping" (glamorous camping) scene.
A range of luxury canvas structures from Vivid Green combine the close-to-nature experience of being in a tent with all the comforts of home. They can serve as holiday accommodation, caf‚s, restaurants, teashops and visitor centres.
Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, including bespoke designs, they range from basic canvas lodges and dormitory-style structures for large groups to solid pavilions with canvas roofs, insulated walls and even under-floor heating.
Kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms can be added, along with wood-burning stoves and decking for an extra touch of luxury.
Vivid Green is holding a series of open days to showcase its glamping range at its base in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, during January and February. Phone 01582 469076 or 07852 343932 for more details.
