Attending the Edinburgh Jazz Festival? Stay here
for £7 a night.
Traveling on a non-backpacking holiday, but can't find a campground or park to set the tent up in, and don't want to stay indoors? Want to stay somewhere unique on the cheap?
In the U.K. you can try Campinmygarden.com, "the first online community advertising private gardens as temporary campsites, providing accessible alternatives to traditional accommodation."
Whether you're headed to a music festival, show jumping derby, the beach, hill walking, or the Air Guitar World Championships (July 24!), Campinmygarden helps you find garden campsites offered up by landowners, for as little as £7 a night. Gardens vary from "bamping" (basic camping) to "glamping" (glamourous camping).
For £20 a night you can camp here
during the Ascot Betfair horse racing weekend.
I love this from one garden description, "You would be sharing the garden with our chickens, dont worry, they are not fully free-range and it does mean there are fresh eggs available for your breakfast!"
Private gardens are already being booked for the 2012 London Olympics. Search by event or activity to find gardens available near particular events.
Writes Campinmygarden founder Victoria Webbon:
"I hope that one day there will be thousands of private gardens being offered as temporary campsites across the world. Everyone will welcome and be welcomed into our gardens with open arms and hearts, sharing in one passion for the universal adventure that is life."
