Ready Camp was first launched in 2015 to attract new people to the pastime while also appealing to those who like spending a night under canvas but with a few more home comforts. Last year Ready Camp revenue broke through the £1 million barrier for the first time.
Bob Hill, Camping and Caravanning Club Sites Director, said: “Ready Camp continues to go from strength-to-strength, having been launched three years ago at just 17 locations. For the 2018 season we’ll see our tents at six new locations.”
The new Ready Camp tents will be pitched at Club Sites in:
- Bude, Cornwall
- Lynton, Devon
- Clent Hills, West Midlands
- California Cross, Devon
- Crowden, Derbyshire
- Normans Bay, East Sussex
Bob added: “The ‘super six’ sites added to this year’s line-up are found near town, country, hills, moors and coastal locations, are ideal spots for glampers to get out and enjoy our great British countryside.
“According to the travel association ABTA, the staycation is set to continue in the year ahead with two-thirds of people planning a UK break*. Our Ready Camp tents are an ideal way for holidaymakers to support that trend, which in turn supports both the local and broader UK economies.
“We aim to make the prospect of a glamping break away more accessible than ever, with Ready Camp sites located within an hour’s drive of each of the UK’s top ten biggest cities.”
Each safari-style tent comes well-equipped. Campers need only bring their bedding, towels and a sense of adventure. For parents of little ones, there is also a triple bunk bed and a single stow away bed. On-site facilities are of a high standard, and benefit from regular investment; washrooms are within walking distance of each tent and make the prospect of midnight trips to the loo with little ones a lot less scary.
Since its launch, Ready Camp has been recognised in several industry awards programmes. In its first year, the website www.readycamp.co.uk won the coveted ‘Best Travel & Holidays’ accolade at the eCommerce Awards for Excellence. Shortlisted in the Best UK Accommodation Group category in the 2016 Family Traveller Awards, Ready Camp went on to win the award ‘Best Holiday Rental for Families’ in 2017.
