This month we were pleased to see that our glamping owners could get back into the swing of things when the government announced the re-opening of accommodation sites from the 4th July. Since then our glamping owners have reported that their availability is booking up fast for the rest of the summer and beyond! So, here are 5 reasons why our shepherd huts are the perfect glamping solution!

We believe that one of the secrets to building a lucrative glamping business is providing a quality experience your customer can’t get elsewhere, and therefore feels excited to spend their time and money with you. This is one of the reasons all our shepherd huts are made bespoke. We’ll work with you to create whatever your customer is currently not able to get from the glamping market, with quality assured and a luxury shepherd hut that lasts.

Our shepherd huts give you the potential for you to offer your customers luxury accommodation with single-use facilities instead of shared, and contactless check in/outs. Something your customers are going to be looking for post lockdown. All whilst providing a bespoke glamping experience, allowing your guests the flexibility that the post lockdown glamping market requires. A unique holiday experience for customers who are looking for a quality escape from the ordinary.

Our shepherd huts have an easy ready-to-use nature which means that your perfect spot for a glamping hut doesn’t need to be turned into a building site to make your glamping business dreams become a reality. Equally, if you have an existing hotel or glamping accommodation, you don’t need to worry about your guests being disturbed for weeks on end. All of our huts are delivered and installed on the agreed delivery day. Furthermore, we don’t out-source our deliveries to delivery companies; we perform every single one and have become experts in getting our shepherd huts into the most discerning spaces.

Not only will your summer guests fall in love with the luxury experience our shepherd huts have to offer, but so will your autumn, winter and spring guests! With natural sheep’s wool insulation, a log burner, and even radiators if you wish, your guests are sure to feel cosy, relaxed and safe. Furthermore, with our signature features like the stargazing roof or the glass walkway in our brace hut -to name a couple of options designed and crafted in our workshop- your guest can experience the natural beauty that your wonderful situation has to offer from inside your hut. On the days when the weather is being classically English or perhaps they just fancy a relaxing lie-in, your guests can experience just what they need, when they need it.

Your Blackdown customer journey doesn’t have to end once we’ve delivered your hut. We are a phone call away to offer advice and answer any questions. Furthermore, we have also set up an exciting new initiative specifically for our shepherd hut customers who are glamping owners. What we want is to encourage people to stay in your shepherd hut. This means that we will be working incredibly hard to get people hearing about you, staying with you, sending you business, and supporting you and your business’s development. Our goal is to create a strong and reliable community of glamping owners who we can promote and support. We do this with things like our exclusive Facebook group for Blackdown glamping owners, a website called Shepherd Hut Breaks (a listing site also exclusive to Blackdown Shepherd Hut glamping owners) and our @shepherdhutbreaks social media page, where we promote our glamping owners and their businesses, with more exciting developments to come!
