Scoping Out Your New Venture
Before you can start planning your new glamping site, you need to work out whether:
- You’re likely to get planning approval
- You have access to the necessary utilities and facilities
- There’s enough demand to support your site
- You’ll make a good return on your initial investment
Running a glamping business can be incredibly rewarding. Demand for domestic holiday rentals has surged in recent years, profit margins are good and the running costs are probably a lot lower than you expect. But starting a successful glamping business still requires a significant up-front investment.
To ensure that this investment isn’t wasted, it’s important to make sure there’s enough demand to support your new site – that you have a solid grasp of the work needed to get your business running and that you know how much your new glamping site is going to cost.
You’ll also need to know what people expect from glamping sites in your location, what sort of pods or tents will offer the best return on investment and what sort of facilities you’ll need to ensure a steady stream of positive reviews.
It’s an involved process that can take a lot of time, but you don’t have to go it alone. Conducted with the help of some of the industry’s most experienced analysts and site designers, our glamping feasibility studies are designed to take the hard work out of the pre-planning process.
