Glampsite cooking – there’s no better way
Fire pits from Firepits UK
Cooking outdoors, close to the heat with smoke and flame – it’s just glorious. The most obvious and most satisfying system for glampers is the traditional firepit set up, but who knew there could be so many design options? Tri-pods, swing arm BBQ racks, log stores, pizza pits, roasting ovens, round, square, short, tall, decorative (but always functional), Firepit UK’s range is made in the UK, along with some essential extras – pop corn pans, marshmallow forks and the ‘Kebab King’!
3-5mm steel with an oil finish, firepits start from from £145 to buy, or there is a hire option for weddings and events. Firepits UK also stocks fire logs, wood fired ovens, and new and antique Indian fire bowls.
WHAT WE LOVE…
The Firepod portable oven, grill and ‘hot rock’
This stylish, portable oven heats up quickly and not only cooks perfect authentic pizzas and flat breads, but also doubles up as a BBQ. It features a reversible griddle – ridged one side and flat on the other, perfect for BBQs and breakfasts.
But the cooking options don’t stop there. A specially designed ‘hot rock’ can be lifted out and taken to the table for fun cooking indoors or out. Ready for pizzas in just 10 minutes, the Firepod recreates the ‘bubble and blister’ look of real Italian pizzas and Indian breads, reaching temperatures over 600ºF.

Every kitchen has a A++ fridge with four star freezer compartment, and can include a three-in-one combination oven, fan assisted oven, compact dishwasher and plenty of dry storage.
