If you’re not familiar with the term glamping by now, let us introduce you to your new favourite way to holiday. A portmanteau of the words “glamourous” and “camping”, glamping combines all the best parts of traditional camping with added comfort, style and convenience. Some of us just aren’t cut out for pitching our own tents, and that’s absolutely fine! When you glamp, all you have to do is show up and enjoy your surroundings. Here are some of the best lodges, tents, cabins and campervans in the Causeway Coast and Glens:

Limavady, Ballykelly and Dungiven Areas:

Swann's Bridge

This beautiful countryside retreat is nestled at the foot of the glorious Binevenagh Mountain. Offering luxury bell tents, yurts and a cosy glamping lodge, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing your stay options.

Calling all adventurous families! Carrowmena Activity Centre is not only home to a wide range of outdoor activities including canoeing, kayaking, ziplining and more, but they also offer a luxurious glamping experience in their spacious bell tents, or in their brand new family glamping pods.
