What a season 2016

Christmas has long been over and 2017 is now well underway. Unfortunately, it’s still single digit degrees outside so not much call for Glamping. But I’ve well and truly embraced the Danish art of Hygge over the Autumn and Winter, so as I’m typing this, recalling the 2016 season, I’m sat here in front of our (roaring) wood burning stove with a lovely cup of coffee as Basil is curled up on the sofa with his furry blanket wrapped around him for extra coziness. Lovely.
2016 was, in one word, incredible! To expand, it was easily our busiest season yet. Newly married couples and their friends and family enjoyed our tents across the country. From Northumberland to Norfolk, we pitched a record number of tents. The teams worked some serious hours. I remember the day two teams had to dismantle a job in Newark, only for one of the vans to then travel on to Norwich to pitch up for a wedding the very same day. What a weekend that was. I remember sleeping for quite a while after that one!
We enjoyed new festivals this year too, with the likes of the Embrace Secret festival and Festival 23. We added new products too to our packages, including; Eve memory foam mattresses, a marquee and Emperor tents.
So as the 2017 season creeps up on us, the weather will improve and the bookings will continue to come in. Personally, I can’t wait. As much as I love relaxing in front of the fire, I’m always much more at home in the great outdoors, doing what I love.
Bring it on!
