Tell us more about your site. What makes it special?
At The Secret Campsite, we’re all about quality, not quantity. Being a small site there’s a limit to the number of guests we can accommodate, so we need to create high-value spaces that generate a decent revenue. We work hard to create a rich and rewarding experience that guests will pay a premium for. This means privacy and space for pitches and carefully cultivating a thriving environment full of wildlife and natural interest. Nature, peace and space are the three words that drive everything we do.
So why did you choose to add a Tree Tent to your site?
When I met Jason, by chance, we had an amusing conversation about what we were both doing, culminating in him visiting us at The Secret Campsite. He noticed an area of ancient woodland, that aside from adding to the ambience of the site, wasn’t generating any income. We agreed it would be the perfect place for a treehouse escape.
Adding a Tree Tent really appealed as, not only would we maximise our unusable woodland, but they add a high-value proposition and generate great returns from a single pitch. The organic shapes and secretive look are in keeping with our ethos while helping us to stand out from the multitude of Yurts, Bell Tents, Glamping Pods and Shepherd’s Huts that you tend to see everywhere!
But most of all, it fits perfectly with our ethos of creating space and living harmoniously with the wildlife. Suspending the Tree Tent in the canopy creates far less intrusion on the land or our ancient oaks – the Tree Tent even looks like the nest of a dormouse! Jason is passionate about protecting woodlands and so I knew we would be in safe hands.
