Starting a Glamping and Camping Business!

Having recently just attended the Glamping Show at Stoneliegh were we exhibited one of our Glamping pods the Ennerdale, we were asked by several people that they were thinking of opening a Glamping site and what are the requirements? In this day people are looking to diversify or use some of the land for an alternative business and Glamping comes near the top of that list.

So if your thinking of starting a new business in Glamping here are some points to consider, will your site need planning? Some manufacturers are telling customers you don't need planning if you have wheels on the units, here at Green Eco Living we advise all our customers to contact the local planning office and discuss there plans to see how many units can be sited etc.

After planning consent and confirmation of how many units you will be having you will need to confirm what the site has in the way of services. The Glamping Pods with en-suite require drainage by either going into an existing drain or a septic tank, or you may wish to use the compost toilet system were no drains will be required. You will need to decide on what power you have to run the units, has the Glamping pods will have electric showers as well as kitchenettes with hob and microwave, so getting your loadings right is imperative to run your operation smoothly.

Here at Green Eco Living we offer you our expertise to advise you exactly what the site will need by way of services to run a successful Glamping business.

We also offer OFF grid solutions as well as calor gas boilers to operate the running of each unit. The difference between offering a Camping Pod site and a Glamping pod site, is that if you were just to offer camping pods you will need to build a toilet block facility, and will only get £35.00 per night on average. But the Glamping Pod although more expensive to purchase will not need a toilet block but you will need to budget for services such as draingae water and Electric to each unit and will get £85.00 pounds a night on average.
