Calling all glamping and camping lovers! We know you love getting out into nature, connecting with the outdoors, and escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You might think that you’re all decked out with the latest camping or glamping gear, but there could well be some accessories you might not have thought about. We’re shining a spotlight on our top five favourite glamping and camping accessories to make your next glamping stay at Long Valley Yurts the most memorable yet.
For anyone who wishes to pack lightly and save space when camping, a spork is the ultimate two-in-one cutlery hack. Made from titanium, one of the toughest alloys on the planet, the spork offers excellent resiliency and will not break no matter how many times it might be dropped or stepped on.
Weighing only 19 grams, the Light My Fire Titanium Spork is ideal for taking with you when camping, hiking, fishing, and picnicking, as it’s small enough to pop in your pocket or backpack with ease. The stainless-steel material is non-allergenic, odourless, and flavourless. As cleaning options can be limited when you’re on the go, you can simply wipe or rinse the spork with cold water and not have to worry about flavour or oils lingering. It’s also dishwasher safe, making it easy to maintain.
A vital tool for campers, glampers and adventurers everywhere is a head torch; ideal for those moments when it’s a bit too dark to see properly and you’ve got your hands full. Popular with hikers, runners, backpackers, and cyclists, the Actik from Petzl is a compact and rechargeable hybrid head torch which offers full control over how you light the route ahead.
The multi-beam head torch delivers proximity lighting, movement, and distance vision, as well as white and red lighting for nocturnal activities. It’s compatible with a CORE rechargeable battery and includes AAA batteries in case you’re out and about for an extended period of time and can’t plug the torch in to recharge.
Looking for a durable mug which you can use in the great outdoors without worrying about breakages? The Klean Kanteen Rise Mug is an insulated 14oz stainless steel mug which has been designed with comfortable contours and a nature-inspired tonal colour palette.
Sustainably created from 90% recycled stainless steel, the mug features an award-winning Climate Lock™ vacuum insulation which helps to maintain the contents’ temperature for longer. The mug also comes with a splash-proof flip lid, which is reinforced with an impact-resistant base cap for added durability.
An essential camping and glamping accessory for all coffee lovers is the AeroPress Coffee Maker. This innovative coffee press uses a rapid, total immersion brewing process to make smooth, full-flavoured coffee without any bitterness. It’s small and perfectly portable, making it ideal for camping, glamping, hiking, fishing, and any other adventurous outdoor activities.
It’s brilliantly eco-friendly, with a compostable microfilter that eliminates grit and makes the cleanup process last just seconds. Water needs to be boiled separately, which you can do in a kettle if you’re staying in luxury glamping accommodation, or on a camping stove if you’re out in the wild.
You can make one to three cups of American coffee per pressing in about 60 seconds; and unlike a French press, you can also brew espresso style coffee for use in lattes, cappuccinos, and other drinks!
If you’re setting up a campfire and want a comfy way to take the weight off your feet as you watch the flames flicker away, a Vagabond Chair by Alpkit is the perfect solution. It weighs only 1kg and collapses down to the length of two water bottles, making it a fantastic companion when you’re on the go but still crave those home comforts.
Its small, light weight and neat carry case allows you to easily pack it into the car boot without any awkward parts sticking out. Assembled in under a minute, you can kick back with your feet up as you watch someone else put the tent up!
The shock-corded base easily pops into place and the seat slips into the ends of the poles with four reinforced slots. The bucket shape which results from the clever design hugs anyone who sinks down into the chair, allowing you to sit back and relax in comfort as you enjoy the very best of the great outdoors.
