Garden Camping – A New Fascinating Concept

Camping is being undertaken since ages. But have you heard of a (relatively) new concept called garden camping? At least, I hadn’t heard it before and so, when I did, I felt a little surprised, a little amazed and a lot curious, and so, I researched more about it, and got thoroughly captivated by the idea. Let me share it with you.

The idea is brought forth for the first time by whose strapline is ‘we don’t do crowds’! Literally, this type of camping is extremely crowdless, peaceful, serene, and truly on the lap of Nature. Here you will camp in private gardens, maintained beautifully by their hosts who respect privacy, peace and space desired by people.


What is your experience of camping so far? You get a limited amount of space with other campers bordering it, with their sight, noise, activities, chatting, playing, everything – not making you feel like you have come in search of peace. Though it is true that man is a social animal and life goes all the way together, there are some points in life when we badly need to stay alone or only with our near and dear ones, without anyone else even knowing about us! Have you felt such a need? I am sure, you have. And if you have, you will understand what I am saying and the importance and romance in the idea of garden camping.
