Rutland Hideaways - Now Open!

"Jack and the team at Glampitect were the perfect partner to help us navigate the planning and set-up of Rutland Hideaways. They were hugely helpful in helping us to identify what type of accomodation we wanted as well as what pitfalls to avoid. We would highly recommend. Thank you Glampitect team!"

A Luxury Rural Retreat in Lincolnshire 

Nestled in the rural picturesque setting of Lincolnshire Countryside, Rutland Hideaways recently introduced Two luxury Glampitect Glamping Pods with private hot tubs to compliment their existing boutique barn. The breathtaking views and high-end amenities, ensure a memorable getaway for couples, families, and friends. 

Rutland Hideaways provide a gateway to explore the charm of Rutland, England's smallest county. Guests can enjoy outdoor adventures or explore Lincolnshire's historical attractions. Rutland Water offers a range of leisure activities, while quaint villages offer a scenic setting with storybook cottages and traditional pubs.

The Idea of Expansion

After recognising a high demand for holiday accommodation from the consistently high occupancy rates of their barn conversion, Chris, owner of Rutland Hideaways decided to explore expansion and make the most of the spectacular views from other land within their ownership.

Following discussions with Jack, Senior Sales Consultant at Glampitect, Chris quickly realised that with the demand for glamping continuing to rise, luxury Glamping pods were the perfect opportunity to expand his offering and turn his existing barn conversion, into a thriving, multiple accommodation business.

Navigating a Succesful Planning Application

The Glampitect team collaborated closely with Chris, delving deep into his vision and layout preferences to ensure every detail was brought to life, paving the way for their creative process to begin.

Erin, Senior Designer at Glampitect, lead on the project and carefully created a variety of technical illustrations (including: Layout Plan, Location Plan, Drainage Plan, Road and Access Plan, Lighting Plan, Visibility Splay and Unit Elevations) and artist impressions required to submit a planning application. Given the technology available, this removed the need for a site visit and the entire project was conducted remotely. 

Initially, the planning application allowed for 6 glamping pods, but upon Chris's reconsideration, this was later scaled down to 2 pods.

Leveraging her expertise, Erin promptly addressed the Planning Officer and Highways Consultee's areas of concern and effectively navigated the application to a successful planning approval.
