Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy glamping site, which is located within the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
The business was established by our clients in 2013 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to move abroad. The business currently operates between April and October and generates a turnover in the region of £216,000, with a good gross profit of 96% as per 2016 accounts.
Our clients offer a truly unique glamping experience and the accommodation is completely “off the grid”, which means no electricity, only powering what they can by Solar and the main source of heating is from log burning stoves and gas heaters. There are a host of facilities available including communal toilets and shower blocks, a communal kitchen hut, hot and cold running water, under cover communal seating, Eco spa with wood burning hot tub and sauna and a children’s play den, to name a few.
There are a number of on-site activities available including wall climbing, zip wires, nature trail quizzes, Segway treks, cycle hire, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting, to name a few.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the industry for the very high quality of the accommodation and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business has many excellent website reviews, many of which are on popular travel and camping websites. The business is a White Rose Award finalist for both 2014 and 2015.
We are advised that the business has 100% full occupancy for weekends and school holidays for 2016. Permission has been granted to build a further 12 units. The landowner has another 100 acres that are currently unused on the site.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by operating the business all year round, perhaps by introducing log cabins to the camp. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the excellent facilities offered. There is also scope to push the event and wedding services.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
