Club chiefs gain Lake District view of growing market

Club chiefs gain Lake District view of growing market

Senior executives from the Caravan and Motorhome Club took a behind-the-scenes look this autumn at a major Lake District holiday park which is meeting new staycation opportunities.

Skelwith Fold in Ambleside, Lake District was the venue for the visit following a study tour earlier in summer to the Club's Coniston Park Coppice by members of BH&HPA's Cumbria branch.

The delegation was headed by the Club's director general Nick Lomas, and the aim was to see how one of the organisation's commercial counterparts was adapting to an evolving market.

Skelwith Fold director Henry Wild, who led the tour of the 130-acre grounds, said there was ample evidence this year that the demand for holidays in the UK was continuing to rise.

Safari so good as the glamping industry attracts more affluent visitors

Glamping

Mark Scott, from Clear Sky Safari Tents, explains how glamping has taken on a whole new level recently. Not content with just canvas and a campfire any more, visitors are looking for an outdoor home where they can enjoy a luxury break with home comforts thrown in, not to mention some amazing designs…

2018 has been our busiest year yet with some major contracts from larger operators and many smaller glamping sites now on our map. Glamping is still in the growth phase but is starting to show signs of entering the mature phase with many sites installing a wide range of glamping accommodation options, from refurbished 1950’s caravans through to full-size jet aircraft!

How to stay safe and warm when glamping this spring?

Glamping

Camping doesn’t have to mean roughing it, however, and glamping, in yurts, tepees, pods and tree houses, is a booming market as millennials look for unique adventures off the beaten track.

With Brexit looming, the popularity of UK “staycations” is rising as holidaymakers look for an affordable, safe and stress-free break – the rustic charm of the great outdoors combined with a comfy bed and a warm fire make glamping the ideal solution. 

Leading flue, chimney and renewable heating products supplier Specflue has published a definitive guide on how to keep your luxury glamping accommodation warm and cosy.
