Bloody well done. What an achievement. I hope the publicity creates lots of business for you.

We don't have normal pitches yet, though we are working on a plan with some neighbours for the future.
I have stayed in one of the units with the kids when we had some late booking in guests, which was a good adventure, and invested in a little caravan (pics on profile) to enable us to get away out of season, and a useful second home for kids during check ins.

Just wanted to say a very well done to you! I'll be back to gush more in the morning......

Wow! I would so love to run a camp site, except I would want to be camping at the times when we would be busiest and that is probably not the best business plan. I shall fire up my kelly kettle in honour of your brew and raise my enamel mug to your continued success. And thanks for the link- will bookmark it.

Oh I've figured it out based on the woodland weekend thing. It looks completely brilliant. I'd be there is a shot if I could. Actually rather consumed with jealousy now.

Do you have any normal pitch spots at your site?

hz Mon 17-Jun-13 21:40:04

I am in awe. Truly. My dream is to run a brilliant campsite and you've just gone ahead and done it. Well done. Perhaps I can pick your brain one day? Big, big pat on the back and how fabulously rewarding to be recognised in the media - brilliant!

Don't know which one is yours on the lists though - which one is you?

Today Im feeling bloody chuffed with myself.

Ive worked like a bugger to get our glampy campsite off the ground - 2 1/2 years fighting the neighbours in 2 planning applications (which I did all the paperwork for, despite previously having zero knowledge of planning), an appeal and a public hearing, designing, sourcing and supervising the build (again, no previous experience), all gods hours doing paperwork for Natural England funding (and I knew nothing about farms either before all this) and local/European grant applications, plus the actual running of the place - building, furnishing, fetching and carrying, up to my knees in brambles, rushed to hospital after a wasp sting/anaphyalctic problem, back and forwards juggling daughters appointments and school runs, undertaking my forest school leader course, and mountains and mountains of washing.......

But today it is worth it, because I was told by MIL that we were one of the SE areas top sites in the Independant here and 3 weeks ago we were in the top 10 Mirrors coolest campsites here

So this is a totally non stealth boast. Ive done pretty well all things considered. And now Im going for a cup of tea and a little hope that someone might come on our woodland weekend as I want to join in......
