The best luxury folding camping chairs

We’ve reviewed some of the best luxury folding camping chairs on the market. Camping definitely doesn’t have to mean uncomfortable!

When you’re out camping, you’re under the stars.

While that might be beautiful and an unforgettable experience to be had with friends and family, the UK can sometimes be a little uncomfortable.

Whether it’s the slate beaches in Wales or the cold mountains in the Peak District.

So, sometimes, a little luxury just needs to be sprinkled on top in order to make the camping trip beautiful and unforgettable for the right reasons; with comfort in mind through luxury folding camping chairs.

You might be wondering what on Earth could make a camping chair luxurious.

As seasoned campers, we often overlook the little extras, but after being able to land our tush in a few different camping seats over the years, we know the features that would make a chair stand-out in the deluxe aisle.


It is the little extras; faux fur or suede for warmth, reclining modular for getting the feet

off the ground or the true lumbar support needed after a long day hiking.

The Best Luxury Folding Camping Chair UK

Finding the right luxury folding camping chairs for you can be a story of exploration to
see which of the luxurious features will best suit you and your trip.

For example, will you prefer the faux fur on a cold night by the fire or would you rather
an extendable leg platform to give your feet some anti-gravity TLC?

Here at Camping Cubs, we’ve gathered together five of our favourite luxury chairs for
you to have a look at:
