Now that the contracts are signed and deposit paid, we have begun the design process and budgeting for our dream glamping site. In a dream world, money would be no object which is not the case! However, we have discovered some hidden gems during our return visit to the glampsite, and with imagination, hard work and creativity a lot of what we want to achieve can be done.
The social area:
Where the existing caravan sits, is a large wooden area near the pool, perfect for a social area. Whip away the caravan (which will be prettied up and used as a honesty shop elsewhere) lay the flooring, bar, chiminea, tables and chairs, pretty lighting set, get the music on and wine out, job done!
Currently, an overground pool sits beneath a beautiful pine tree, in the middle of the campsite. In 2018, we hope to instal a underpool to compliment this pool. As you can see from the pictures, with a lot of decking and then landscaping around the existing pool, it can become quite fabulous!
The glampsite is set in 4 acres of beautiful grassland and woodland, with a gentle slop on the right hand side. This slope makes a perfect setting for our outdoor cinema, imagine warm summer evenings enjoying a classic film, or cuddling under a blanket during the cooler starry nights…
Lots more projects also underway such as the shower block renovation, possible games room in the barn, erecting the belle tents, furnishing and decorating the accommodation, the list is endless!
Au revoir for now!
