The Sunday Times Coolest Camp & Glamp Sites
Article 15th April 2018
We were delighted and surprised to have been chosen as the only camp or glamp site in Devon to be featured in The Sunday Times coolest camp sites article this month. Featuring 20 of the coolest places to visit, the article covered sites in many different counties of the UK and they gave us a lovely write up.
Marketing your business can be a minefield, whilst wearing all the various hats of a business owner, marketing is definitely one of the toughest areas to get right and it can be so difficult to choose who to list your site with. So when a national broadsheet chooses you, out of so many wonderful others, it makes your day, month, even year! Plus it gives us confidence that we are definitely doing something right.
As the glamping industry grows and evolves, there are so many different places to visit and we have found that people are also looking for that little extra on site, as well as the unique accommodation. Therefore, it is essential to offer lots of additional experiences that will make your guests’ stay that much more memorable. Some of the extras we offer were mentioned in The Sunday Times which was brilliant.
So with that in mind, below is the full list of lovely extras we offer here at The Orchard Retreat.
- Outdoor bathroom with two cast iron baths and a shower
- Hand built clay pizza oven
- Fire pit
- Private supper club
- Shop with a range of local goodies and alcohol
- Badminton, outdoor table tennis and other outdoor and indoor games
- Communal indoor space with WiFi, sofas and board games – for those rainy days
We also have access to lots of other activities such as spoon carving, basket weaving and foraging. Plus there are some great places to explore right on our door step and we are well located for day trips to the North and South coast and both Dartmoor and Exmoor.
We are also excited to be hosting our first yoga retreat in September. Places are still available so please do let us know if you would like to join us. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01363 866058 to discuss this further. There is an early bird price for bookings before the end of May so it is worth getting in touch soon!
