Wooden Wigwams - Experience a touch of luxury in the great outdoors

Do you dream of a UK camping holiday, but feel put off my the rain, discomfort and the cold? Well maybe Glamping is for you!

Glamping is camping’s trendy new friend; combining all the benefits of the great outdoors but without the mud and soggy canvass.

Metalfury have recently been helping the National Diving & Activty Centre (NDAC) with their move into the Glamping arena. The NDAC wanted to offer some low cost accomodation to their divers and tourists visiting the Forest of Dean.

The NDAC decided that rather than just offering a standard campsite, they would invest in the latest in glamping accommodation in the form of Wooden Wigwams. Sleeping up to five adults, Wigwams are the ultimate eco cabin; double-glazed, secure, cosy and warm whatever the time of year. A low cost alternative to hotels and B&Bs, their Wigwams truly offer all year round camping, and the best bit, no pitching a tent in the rain!

Wooden Wigwams make 600 mile journey to NDAC ChepstowThe NDAC ordered their heated cabins, the land was prepared, the infrastructure was put in place and in the meantime Metalfury kept busy keeping the NDAC news pages and twitter feed upto date with the wigwam developments. Then on a rainy February day six Wigwams made their 600 mile journey from the manufacturers in Scotland to the National Diving & Activity Centre in Chepstow.

The team at the NDAC were keen to take advantage of the upcoming sunny weekend and start taking bookings. So with only a couple of days, metalfury produced the branding for the Wigwam accommodation, a microsite, web banners, promotional flyers and supporting artwork to go inside the wigwams themselves.

It was quite a slog to get everything done and it required quite a lot of caffeine, but we managed to get everything done on time and the wigwams are proving to be a great success. We are really pleased with the results and are looking forward to a relaxing glamping weekend in Chepstow over the summer; toasting marshmallows around a camp fire and sleeping under the stars!

The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex came to Pangbourne this week to open the rebuilt Adventure Dolphin Centre.

West Berkshire Council invested more than £1 million on the new centre on the bank of the River Thames to improve facilities for young people from across the district. A charitable trust of regular users contributed more than £300,000 towards the cost of the centre and new equipment. The Greenham Common Trust was also a generous benefactor in awarding a grant of £150,000 to enable the construction of an indoor climbing wall.

The new building has received plaudits from users as well as the wider community for its creative design incorporating an indoor climbing wall, fully accessible facilities and first floor community room with panoramic views over the Thames.
