We went glamping at Warwick Castle this week and thought it worth putting our opinions for others....
1. The price - at £150 a night for four people (please don't increase this!). This is good value as it includes two days entry, car parking, staying in the tent, unlimited breakfast, and evening entertainment for the children. In particular, you would need to pay for the Knight School and archery if you were just going to Warwick Castle for the day, but with glamping it's free in the evening for as many turns as you can fit in.
2. A good way to test if camping/glamping is for you!
3. The staff were enthusiastic and helpful and the whole process ran very smoothly.
4. Our children (aged 5 and 7) thought it was all wonderful.
Not so good things:
1. You can clearly hear both motorway noise and aircraft noise from the tent.
2. As with all camping, the campsite only goes quiet when the last person goes to bed until the first person wakes up. The tents are close together. This is par for the course with camping though.
3. There was a problem with the single beds deflating, and when we stayed (in the first week of it opening) there were no replacement single beds left (because so many were deflating) and so a replacement would have had to be another double bed for which there wasn't really room in the tent.
4. Unfortunately my daughter left her favourite toy in the tent, and despite ringing as soon as we got home, "lion" had disappeared. Our fault for it being left, but a shame that it wasn't found and kept when the tent was cleaned.
5. It is a bit of a walk from the campsite to Warwick Castle. Not so bad because you can use the fast-track entrance on arrival, but this closes so you have to walk back from the main entrance to the site. Might be worth Warwick Castle keeping the fast track entrance open for Glampers.
Overall we were very pleased and would recommend, particularly because it was good value for money and because of the efforts that the staff are putting in.
