As glamping is still a comparatively new industry, not many quality established businesses have come on the market yet, so the forthcoming sale of a successful glamping site near historic York may be of interest to those that may be put off by the time, expense and unpredictability of setting up their own site.
The sale of Acorn Glade is a rare opportunity to acquire a thriving glamping business that already has a massive following, featuring twice in The Times Weekend Supplement and boasting an impressive 22,000 Facebook followers. The site has been set up from scratch and is just entering its fifth season of business with hugely positive reviews and feedback from its guests and 2016 & 2017 Certificate of Excellence Awards from Trip Advisor.
The glamping accommodation consists of Poppy and Daisy; two beautiful British-made yurts, Bluebell; a cosy traditional log cabin and Rose; a charming 100-year-old refurbished bow-top gypsy wagon, all set around a picturesque private fishing lake in woodland and wild-flower meadows.
Each of the accommodation units is tastefully furnished with comfortable beds, a log-burning stove (original refurbished coal-burning stove in Rose gypsy wagon) and has been adorned with hand-made decorations, signs and soft furnishings. The communal kitchen and showers/toilets are housed in a delightful timber building with outdoor bbq and pizza-oven, all providing comfortable facilities for guests. There is an attached workshop with log-burning stove included that could have a variety of different uses. The grounds are designated as a ‘Local Wildlife Site’ and are laid out with car-parking, woodchip paths around the fully stocked fishing lake with outdoor seating, picnic benches and a fire-pit for sitting around in the evening.
Everything is included! The site has been set up with remarkable attention to detail, as a business for two people to run with some scope for expanding if required. It comes with absolutely everything, from the furnishing, contents and decorations, spare linen, crockery and pans, to impressive eco-credentials, an established customer base and the much admired website, social media pages and booking system.
Perhaps most significantly, the site comes with somewhere to live! Sharing the same site but tucked away out of sight is a beautiful 4-bedroomed home, with a kitchen garden, paddock/orchard and large storage barn, the property boasts a stunning and airy bespoke kitchen/diner, spacious lounge with log burner, 4 bedrooms, a luxurious family bathroom, 2 shower rooms and a utility room.
