Starting a glamping business can be daunting. We know because we’ve done it!
After planning, designing and project managing an award-winning glamping site – NC500 Pods - we learned about the pitfalls and figured out the best approaches to getting a brand new site off the ground. One successful project led to the completion of dozens of other glamping pod businesses for ourselves and our clients.

Do I need planning permission for camping pods?
The answer is…. probably. There are some exceptions which we will explore first to see if you can exempt yourself. Then we will go on to discuss what you do need to satisfy planning for those that do need permission.
Local council planning has a few requirements that will definitely be needed when submitting an application and some which may or may not be, depending on each council’s preference.
What is the Return on Investment for glamping pods?
Any individual, or company, considering setting up a glamping site will want to have solid advice about the investment involved, and how much return on that can be expected.
There are a number of elements to be taken into account when planning your investment and decisions taken at the start will affect the speed and the level of your returns.
Is it worth setting up a glamping site on my land?
Before you invest in starting a glamping business, you need to know if it is practical. A feasibility study will help you determine if there will be sufficient demand for your site, who your target audience will be and what they are looking for in a holiday.
A feasibility assessment lets you depend less on trial and error and more on reliable data.
Why is glamping site design important?
Planning out the right site design should be done with thought and effort. An attractive glamping site is more likely to be successful.
A glamping site design typically includes the location pods, pavements, roads and other facilities etc. Having a structured design is key, so make sure that everything is in the right place and you have a good idea of what it would look like.
