Glamping Business Workshops

 Throughout 2017, Kate pioneered a world first by running a series of hands-on workshops, where she shared her  expertise with those interested in starting a glamping business.


The glamping industry is undergoing a period of rapid expansion and development at the moment, and with a plethora of new structures and services coming on board, it’s an exciting time to be in the industry. However, guest expectations are changing and there’s increasing competition, making glamping as a business option something of a tricky labyrinth to navigate. Especially as not all ‘glamping glitter’ is gold.

We’ve called them ‘workshops’ rather than seminars, because they are practical as well as informative, so you get the guidance and tools to help you create your own successful enterprise. Numbers are limited to facilitate time for discussion and questions. For some workshops, carefully selected co-presenters, already running successful glamping businesses, share their experiences, the pitfalls, and inside tips.

There are many variables to consider, we want to help you get it right.

Feedback From Previous Workshops

“driving home I had my ‘eureka’ moment regarding my U.S.P, I also now have a name which has driven me mad for the last 2 years and I really think that was down to your workshop and seminars. I am now chomping at the bit and have to quickly get all these ideas down. Thank you Kate for all your help, positivity and enthusiasm”

“really helpful in so many ways, among other things it’s got us thinking about our mouse and cheese!”

“I arrived with hopes and dreams but no clue how to get it going – left with a clearer view of how to start and shape my glamping, which I didn’t think was possible in an hour.”

“put me firmly on track, can’t wait for the full day workshop in October, going by today I’m pretty sure I’ll leave with a good chunk of my business plan! many thanks, it was brilliant’


2017 Workshops

Glamping Business Workshop, October, Marston Vale, Bedfordshire

An introduction to starting a glamping business, with inside tips to success.

This workshop will cover most key factors of setting up and running a glamping business. If you already have land and ideas, you can start applying the workshop material to your project, if you are still looking for land this will help you decide where to set up.

Glampsite Business Start-Up

The day will start with an introduction to, and overview of, the glamping industry so you understand how it is developing and where your project might fit in. We then work through each topic, if you already have land, you can if you wish, start applying the workshop content to your own project or ideas.

In the afternoon we’ll be joined by Jenna Turnham, who runs her own successful glampsite in Northants, soon to be featured on ‘Discover Britain’. Jenna will share her first hand experience of setting up and running her site, including the challenges and rewards.
