Glamping with Cosy Tents in Daylesford

cosy tents daylesford

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.

  • Omg, this looks amazing! I’ve always wanted to try go glamping and hope to go soon!

    Love,

    • It’s such a fun & unique experience! I’d definitely recommend :)

  • That breakfast box is adorable! I’ve never been glamping, but I’m planning on going on an African safari this autumn, and I have a feeling glamping is the only way I’ll sleep in a tent! :)

    • How cute is it?! Oh wow Lisa, that’s amazing!! I’ll be keeping an eye out for your posts :)

  • Oh my, I would definitely try this out! I also not a fan of camping, especially when it’s raining. The water tends to seep in, and everything become soggy and wet *shudders*

    • That sounds like the worst!! Luckily the weather was quite perfect when we went, I don’t think I could’ve managed it in the rain haha

  • I’m with you, I’ll taking glamping over normal camping any day.This seems lovely. I don’t know why, but the tent reminded me of the scene in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire when they’re at the world cup & Harry is about to enter what he thinks is a normal tent, but goes inside & it’s huge and lovely? That’s immediately what I thought of with these photos, lol.

    • It’s so fun! You should definitely look into it one day :)

  • That looks amazing! I’d love to go glamping. I actually really don’t mind camping haha! We used to go a lot when I was a kid to our local farm just for the weekend and it was the best memories as a kid! My parents bought a towing caravan the other year and I was like nope, I’d rather camp but it’s really grown on me haha!

    This glamping location looks and sounds absolutely divine. I actually love roughing it and going camping the traditional way but also am super intrigued by glamping and would love to try it out for something more luxurious. Thanks for the awesome review!
