Back in 2007 the term ‘glamping’ first started to increase in popularity. A decade on and more Brits than ever are choosing to enjoy a ‘staycation’ with the popularity of glamping often gaining higher occupancy rates than hotels.
Safari tents in the UK have become a sought after choice for many Glamping locations – offering a traditional camping experience with the luxury feel of 5* accommodation.
Back in 2015 Kate Tregonning, of Brownscombe Luxury Glamping, first contacted us with a view to installing safari tents on her land in Devon. Here she tells us how the journey unfolded:
“Right from the beginning Bond were different from other tent suppliers in the market place. They insisted on a site visit very early on in the process, before quoting for the job and were able to advise on the platform siting and structure. They were competitive on price but what made them stand out was the customer service – changes were made to their basic design to suit my site, the team came to put them up over two visits and they coped with the rain and long hours with good humour. The feedback on the finished product has been very positive and I would highly recommend them.”
“Having opened with three tents in May 2015, we have now just finished our 3rd season. We are based in Devon, which gives us an advantage as it is a tried and trusted holiday destination, however we have been really pleased that our occupancy has gone up from 56% to 86% in the first year in the same period from May – October and it is now 100% in school holidays. This was way ahead of our business plan as we had budgeted for 70%.”
