Ready Camp, the official glamping network of The Camping and Caravanning Club, has won a prestigious award at the Family Traveller Awards 2017.

The glamping provider won the award for ‘Best holiday rental for families’ at this year’s ceremony, fending off competition from other big name brands in the travel and tourism sector, including AirBnB, Forest Holidays and Villa Plus.

Now in its third year, winners of the Family Traveller Awards 2017 were announced at a London ceremony on 21 November. The awards are dedicated to honouring the best travel companies working in the family travel and tourism industry. Hosted by TV personality Alice Beer, this year’s event was attended by more than 200 people.

Since its launch in 2015, the number of locations to offer glamping with Ready Camp has grown to 39 Camping and Caravanning Club Sites, and there are plans to launch new locations ahead of the start of next year’s camping season too.

Bob Hill, Sites Director at The Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “Ready Camp offers all the fun of camping with the convenience of a pre-pitched luxury safari-style tent and comfy beds. We launched Ready Camp in 2015 with glamping tents on 17 Camping and Caravanning Club Sites and its rapid growth is testament to the wide appeal of our product.

“It has proven to be massively popular with families who have children and this award represents a fantastic achievement that reflects the hard work of everyone involved in developing and delivering the holiday experience that Ready Camp has to offer.”

In total, the Family Traveller Awards 2017 attracted 2,600 nominees of which 240 were shortlisted, with 45,000 public votes cast and 20 winners.
