The ‘glamping’ tents – glamorous camping – are like ‘hotel rooms’ with king sized beds, loft bedrooms and even a SPA BATH.

The swanky tents also have walk-in wardrobes and a fully-fitted kitchen, but can set you back a whopping £50,000.

Adria, more commonly known for their caravans and mobile homes, are hoping to break the UK market with their ‘Boutique’ range, where prices start at £18,000 for a ‘canvas-style’ tent.

The tents are delivered on a low loader to a mobile site or field, and happy campers can then put together the self-assembly tent.

Derbyshire based firm, Geoff Cox, are the only UK based company to distribute the tents, which weigh two tonnes.

A spokesperson for Geoff Cox, based in Denby, said: “It’s for people who want all the glamour of a top hotel while being close to nature, and without having to compromise on creature comforts.

“The glamping tents are available in all shapes and sizes and they’re just beautiful.

“Our smallest one is literally just like a canvas-style tent, then you have the mid-range ones with a bathroom like in a hotel.

“Our biggest one is super luxury, five star quality and some of them can go up to £50,000.”
