Hot summer results shine on Lancashire glamping firms business forecast

Luxury glamping company Ribble Valley Glamping Ltd is celebrating a successful first year and a great start to the summer thanks to the hot weather and financial support from accountancy firm Pierce.

 


The family business, which trades as Wigwam® Holidays Ribble Valley, opened in October 2017 and has seen sales ramp up in the past two months with guests booking last minute spontaneous trips to enjoy the recent hot weather.

 

 

The franchise caught the eye of businessman John Brewer two years ago when he saw the glamping cabins at a trade show. Together with his wife Anne, daughter Jane McDonnell and her husband Martyn, the family have brought luxury en-suite glamping to Lancashire’s Ribble Valley.

 

 

The site currently has six cabins, with the directors looking for funding to invest in two more to meet the demand from holidaymakers wanting a getaway in the heart of Lancashire.

 

 

Company director Martyn said: “We’ve worked really hard to get this business up and running and have done most things ourselves from laying the groundworks to landscaping the site.

 

“The cabins are packed with amenities including two double beds, shower and toilet, fully fitted kitchen, TV and DVD player with outdoors table and chairs, firepit and BBQ set.

 

 

“The site also has an on-site shop that stocks most of the things that tend to be forgotten with a few treats like marshmallows. There is also a supply of fresh milk from a local milking parlour.

 

 

“Our business goal is to provide excellent customer service so our guests have a fantastic holiday and we’re delighted to have 5* ratings from Facebook and Google reviews.”

 

 

John, a long-standing client of Pierce for his portfolio of businesses, enlisted the accountancy firm to help with the new family venture.

 

 

Pierce has been advising the company on corporate structure, funding and VAT, and will help to run the firm’s payroll and maximise tax reliefs.  

 

 

Mark Walmsley, associate director at Pierce, said: “We are delighted to help a long-established client with their new family venture. It is a brilliant business idea and who could resist staying in such stunning surrounds.

 

 

“The business has got off to a tremendous start and we look forward to working with the company as it continues to grow and becomes the go to place for holidaymakers in Lancashire.”
