Ever since I started hearing about glamping I’ve been really curious as to what it’s all about. If you didn’t know, glamping is a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping. It’s basically “luxury camping.”
glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries
I’ll admit it, I’m not a camper. I feel at ease in the bustle of the city and I’d probably bring my eyebrow kit as a top 3 necessity if I was stuck on an island.
But glamping is something that really appealed to me, which is why I was so excited to try Cosy Tents, a glamping experience in Daylesford, Victoria.
Saturday morning, fresh and early, we set off to the charming country town of Daylesford. It took about an hour and a half from Melbourne but we stopped along the way for markets and food. It was a super scenic drive through the countryside where I managed to squeal at every single animal we passed.
We finally arrived in the afternoon to find our tent decked out with an incredibly comfortable queen size bed with crisp bed sheets, and gorgeous bathroom facilities. All the bell tents accommodate for 2 people.
There’s an outdoor kitchen so you’re able to cook up anything you’d like, but we decided to head into the Daylesford town for dinner, a mere 10 minute drive. Kazuki’s is known as the best restaurant in town, but there are many other lovely places to go such as The Farmers Arms, Lake House, Mercato and Perfect Drop. We opted for something a little more low-key and ordered pizza from Cafe Vassilis, and it was probably some of the best pizza ever (you wont regret the marinara or prosciutto & rocket).
As the sun started to set, we sat outside our tent with some wine and really just took in the tranquility. It’s so nice to be able to escape life for the weekend.
My favourite spot was by the fire pit. If there’s no fire restrictions, it’s lit up at night and everyone gathers around with drinks and stories. As it gets dark, all you see is the fire, the people sitting around you and the brightest, most incredible sky.
In the morning, we were delivered the cutest breakfast box which you can order for an extra fee. It saves you from having to go into town to get food and there’s a nice selection of croissants, banana bread, fruit, cereal, and other little treats. Just the sweetest!
Have you ever been glamping before?
Thank you to Cosy Tents for hosting our stay. Opinions are as always my own.
