If you dream of starting up your own caravan site, then you will probably want to give a lot of thought about what is included and how it will be run. There are lots of caravan sites across the UK, and caravan holidays are as popular as ever, if not more so, with the pandemic leading to a boom in caravan and motorhome sales as people embraced the freedom of getting away from it all.
When you are setting up a campsite, firstly you need to think about who it will appeal to and who your target audience will be. Some people like to go to a lively campsite with a lot going on, whereas others are looking for a place that offers peace and tranquillity, and it is unlikely that you will be able to provide a campsite that can offer both of these things!
There are certain facilities that you can provide – some campsites are very basic and offer only the bare necessities, such as electrical hook ups and a shower and toilet block, whereas others will have more things there, from swimming pools and gym facilities to a place where you can get a drink at the bar and enjoy evening entertainment.
For family campsites, you should think about the additional facilities for kids – you can get a company like this playgrounds Cheltenham based company www.greenfieldsltd.co.uk/services/playgrounds-and-parks to put in a playground to keep kids entertained, and you should also consider what kid’s activities are in the local area, as well as what the local public transport is like.
Lots of people also like to go on holiday with their dogs, so if you are allowing dogs on your site, put in facilities like bins for putting dog waste into and maybe a shop selling dog supplies in case anything has been left at home by accident!
If you want to run a site that is quieter, think about the location. Ideally it will be remote and rural as people will want to get away from it all at a site like this. Somewhere with good walking routes and cycling trails is also a good location for a caravan site, and a nearby pub always goes down well!
