The Ultimate Guide to Planning, Setting Up and Running a Successful Glamping Business

With 18 years of marketing experience working on brands such a Beefeater Gin, Solpadeine, Hedex, Snack a Jacks and Huggies nappies, plus two of her own businesses, Bella knows how to create and market brands. And after 5 seasons of developing and growing Longlands she knows how to set up, build and run a successful Glamping business. Longlands had an occupancy of 95% in its first year, produced a turnover of almost £200k in year two and in year 3 generated an operating profit twice that of the business plan. In 2016, its fifth season of operation, Longlands was the very first site in the country to be awarded a Gold by Visit England in their new Glamping Accreditation Scheme. And they have just won Gold in the Devon Tourism Awards for Glamping Business of the Year.

In response to the dozens of would be glamping owners visiting Longlands and asking about the secrets behind the Longlands success, she decided to package her insights, guidance and useful contacts for setting up and running a successful glamping business into a one-day course. “I wish that there had been a course like this when I had been starting on my glamping journey” comments Bella. “It would have saved me thousands of pounds and months of work! At least I can now help others with what I have learnt.”

As one delegate said, “Bella has not just been in the business, she is the business! Fantastic and essential insight from the dream to the first guest arriving. Save yourself a fortune and get a guru!”

In addition to the course she now also offers bespoke consultations either at Longlands or over the phone.
