Vintage Vacations offer Glamping holidays from their collection of 13 vintage American caravans with classic British caravans making a total fleet of 18 to draw on.
Vintage Vacations was the original Glamping holiday business on the Island and one of the first in the UK to offer this type of holiday.
Having successfully run the business for the last 12 years the current owners are looking to pass the business on.
Currently the caravans are situated in a rural location close to the outskirts of Ryde and ideally situated for exploring the local area and all the attractions that the Island has whilst offering a peaceful location with wonderful views.
The current owners lease the field that houses the caravans and the balance of a 10 year lease (3 years left) is available. The landlord has given verbal agreement to the owners of Vintage Vacations that the lease could be extended for a further 10 years. The business could be relocated if a new owner required.
The 13 vintage American caravans comprise 9 Airstreams, 3 Spartans and 1 Vagabond all with aluminium finishes. These and the classic British caravans have all been restored to original condition and are 'properly vintage'.
Please check our client's web site for full details of all the caravans and their individual facilities www.vintagevacations.co.uk.
The site provides a separate shower and toilet facility.
As well as being fully equipped each caravan is provided with a picnic bench, sunshade, deck chairs, BBQ's and log burners for outdoor use.
There is a hard standing car park.
The business has had a large amount of exposure in the national press and has won and been nominated for a number of awards including one in the Tourism and Leisure category of the Isle of Wight Business Chamber of Commerce Awards for Excellence.
In 2012 Vintage Vacations were runners up in Coast Magazines awards for Best Caravan and Camping Site. Vintage Vacations have won the best place to go glamping from My Isle of Wight Awards for two years running (2014/2015).
This as a rare opportunity to acquire a successful, well known business catering for a popular specialist market.
