Tipis

You can almost hear the wolves' howling and the buffalo running... and (more likely) you can smell the woodsmoke: wake up in the world of the Old West on a holiday in a tipi. The traditional dwelling of the Native American tribes of the Great Plains, tipis (not to be confused with wigwams, a domed structure) are increasing in popularity as a quirky alternative to other camping and accommodation options. 

Tipi camps (and Yurt Camps) have been springing up all over Britain. They range from a single canvas structure pitched in a farmer’s spare field to multi-tent sites spread over tracts of woodland and with all the activities and facilities you’d expect at a modern campsite. Indeed, many are now designed for luxury camping: they have floorboards and supported walls and are spacious enough to house a double bed, comfy chairs, basic cooking equipment and a wood-burning stove to keep you snug under a sheepskin blanket. 

Their unique, striking design has stood the test of centuries and provides a cosy space that keeps out extremes of weather. Check out some holiday ideas including tipis in greentraveller founder Richard Hammond's list of top green Autumn breaks and have a look at a selection of places you can experience a night under canvas in the very old American way, below.
