Glampitect Academy 2023: How To Start A Glamping Business

Glampitect Academy How To Start A Glamping Business

Did you know that we run a free academy on how to start a glamping business? 
Earlier this month we led an online seminar on the topic and were delighted to see so many new faces embarking upon their glamping site journey! 
Read more about what was covered in the last Academy meeting and how you can participate at no cost to you, from the comfort of your home.

In this article, we are going to discuss:

Who are Glampitect?

Glampitect are the UK’s leading glamping site designers and planning consultancy. 

We have helped over 200+ landowners with their feasibility studies, designs, pre and full planning documentation and secured over 60 planning approvals and active glamping sites!

  • Feasibility studies
  • Glamping designs
  • Glamping pre-planning
  • Glamping full planning
  • Glamping marketing and booking systems

It’s fair to say our glamping consultants know what they’re talking about and want to help you succeed.

Calum MacLeod, founder of Glampitect and NC500Pods setup the consultancy because he recognised an ever-increasing demand in glamping getaways across the UK and the globe and wanted to help beginners achieve their glamping site dreams.

Interesting Q&As from the last Academy:

  1. Is it better to look for sites within walking distance to village or somewhere within the countryside?

    1. Often that depends on local council policy as some expect you to be reachable via public transport. This is something our expert team can investigate for you once we know more about your specific site.
  2. Is your growth in occupancy due to advertising?

    1. Advertising, marketing your business and ensuring a good experience to create return business is a massive part of keeping occupancy up. Before you are up and running, Glampitect can support you with setting up a website, booking system and a marketing plan!
  3. Could you share the best online sites to find land?

    1. PlotFinder, On the Market, UK land and Farms are good places to start.
