01

This is the beginning of the once-in-a-lifetime trip. After deciding on a piece of land and putting in an offer, you may begin site planning, selecting your glamping units, and mapping your property. But you shouldn't hurry into purchasing land.

02

Indeed, it may be argued that this is the most crucial step in the planning process. The condition of the land your property is situated on directly affects its potential, so you should take the time to get it correctly.

03

The ideal plot should be beautiful, somewhat remote, and roomy enough to give your visitors the impression that they are "lost in nature." However, you also need to choose a location that is near water, electricity, sewage infrastructure, highways, and walkways.

04

In order to make sure you can actually proceed with your project, you should also choose a location that is likely to receive planning permission. To do this, assess the local planning regulations, consider the track record of previous similar developments, and attempt to get a general idea of how feasible your site is before committing to an extended land lease or making an offer.

05

Although it can all be a little intimidating, you don't have to do it by yourself. Experts in glamping with direct knowledge of the land-purchasing procedure, we're in a great position to assist you in assessing several plots and locating the suitable residence for your next project.

Assistance With Land Purchases Customized To Your Goals

There is no such thing as a "good" plot that works for everyone; it all depends on your goals and the kind of website you want to operate. The needs of someone running a "back to nature" retreat with twenty tents, a lake for boating, hot tubs, fire pits, and room for a nature trail will be considerably different from those of someone running a modest, four-dome site in the middle of a forest.

Nevertheless, there are a few characteristics that all excellent glamping locations share, such as easy access to necessary facilities, a charming feature, and protection from busy highways. When you enroll in our land purchase service, we will work with you to create a shortlist of viable locations based on specifications that are relevant to your goals and considerate of what makes a successful glamping site.

Glamping is all about getting away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and spending time in the outdoors. While it's possible to landscape a very boring storyline, it's usually preferable to choose one that's already set in visually appealing landscape. Calm backdrops with lush, green boughs, rolling hills, or hazy mountains are essential to creating that mood.

We'll assist you in finding plots that meet your needs and point out any characteristics that will really make your campground stand out. Before you spend your hard-earned money, we'll also assist you in coming up with creative ideas for maximizing the attraction of a certain location and provide you with candid criticism on any areas of concern.

Your customers may want to feel isolated, but glamping is all about luxury and nobody wants to trek hours off the beaten path just to find their accommodation. When evaluating a potential site, it’s important to look at accessibility: How far is it from the nearest main road? Could people get to you if they wanted to travel by train or will it be prohibitively expensive to take a taxi from the nearest station?

Ensuring that your guests have ample access to the surrounding countryside is also crucial. Using maps and land registration data to make sure you're well aware of any potential access concerns, our design and planning professionals are in a good position to offer advice in this regard.

The essential element of glamping is amenities. Visitors arrive at locations anticipating hot showers, functional plug outlets for their favorite devices, and functioning toilets. Contemporary glampers are beginning to anticipate functional TVs, Netflix accounts, and WiFi connections as well.

A location that is far from any possible amenities? Let's just say that getting your project suitable for glamping could be a difficult task that drains your construction budget and makes you make compromises in other areas. That’s why we carefully assess access to important utilities when picking out a site for your business.

When a glamping project is put on hold, it's usually because the site owners are having trouble getting their local government to grant them planning clearance. Purchasing land that is more likely to receive approval will help you avoid expensive delays during what's undoubtedly one of the riskiest stages of the setup process.

Our in-house experts will ensure that any potential plots have a good chance of receiving planning permission from the appropriate authorities when you hire us to find the ideal plot. They will also interact with local guidelines and examine surrounding land use to make sure you're not purchasing a site that won't allow for construction.

The Safest Method for Purchasing Land for Your Campsite

The notion that glamping sites don't have to be situated in popular tourist areas has some validity: visitors are looking for a luxurious vacation with all the modern conveniences, so your site's fire pits, hot tubs, and upscale glamping units will be its main draws.

Despite this, some people still have preconceived notions when they go camping. They desire to be in the middle of nature and to be shown vistas that are completely different from what they see every day. There is typically a direct relationship between the quality of a plot and the return on investment (ROI) that your glamping site will provide. The greatest glamping sites are located in environments that make it simple to offer this experience.

We urge any potential land owner to get in touch with our land buying service in order to steer clear of the expensive error of making an investment in a location that is unable to provide the necessary experience. This is a genuinely end-to-end solution made specifically for you. We'll assist you in finding the ideal plot, submitting an offer, and completing the purchasing procedure. After that, we can assist you with choosing the ideal kind of units for your site, designing and organizing your glamping development, and completing your entire planning application.
