Fed up with roughing it? Why not spend £13k on a luxury glamping suite at Glastonbury?

The Glastonbury Festival in the UK is an opportunity for outdoorsy music lovers to become one with nature over the five days, camping, eschewing shampoo and generally having a great time in cramped spaces. But it’s become apparent over the past few years that not everyone is willing to rough it when attending Glasto, with the interest in luxe camping options soaring.

This year though, punters have the option of staying at the festival in the height of style, thanks to the Pop Up Hotel. Revellers can sleep in queen sized beds, use regular toilets and showers and “proper” (as opposed to inflatable) furniture. There’s a pool and deck in the complex, running water, security and it’s nice an quiet, perfect for those who aren’t au fait with sleeping on the ground in the great outdoors.

However, a service like this doesn’t come cheap, and the most budget-friendly offering at the hotel is £1795 for a classic bell tent that sleeps two. Oh, and that price doesn’t even include your Glasto ticket.

Still, if you have a spare £13,000, you can rent the Tenthouse Suite for five nights. It sleeps up to six people (with the possibility for two more at an extra price), has three fully furnished bedrooms, covered front porches and deck chair and power sockets to charge your techy bits. Luxury linens and clean towels mean it really is a step above your average festival experience.
