Requirements that You Must Know

There are many requirements when starting any business, nevermind a Glamping business with land management and finance involved. Here are some of the requirements that are important to figure out before you start your Glamping Business.


You must own and have permission of land to start a Glamping Site, this is a necessity. If you have not already done so, you need to get this step sorted. You can rent land monthly or purchase a plot of land so you are the sole owner.

In this case, you will not have to pay any extra fees monthly, making your business more profitable. However, renting out land is nothing to be ashamed of, and is a good way to start off your Glamping Business.

With this, you must make sure that the mortgage/rent is viable, will not drain all your profit, and is agreed long enough to allow you to make profit. 


For any sort of business, money is usually a requirement. However, with Glamping, even more so. Depending on what you need (how many Glamping Pods, access to the place etc) this can be a challenge.

You must calculate the amount of money needed, which can be a difficult challenge. We have provided a Glamping Site Setup Calculator – this will be able to help you find out how much you will actually need to start your Glamping Business.

How much do you want this? 

Is this something you have been motivated to do for a long time, or are you starting this on a whim… These are questions that you need to ask yourself before getting involved in business, especially a business such as Glamping which requires a lot of management.

Make a decision on how much you really want to start your Glamping business, and decide if this is the thing that you want to do. It will save a lot of time and money in the long run, if you eventually decide that you don’t want to do it anymore.

This is a very important stage of planning, as many people quickly realise that business is hard and that maybe they have chosen the wrong thing to do. Save your time and effort in the future and set your mind on the right thing now.

Write up a Business Plan

This isn’t limited to Glamping, but can be applied for any business at all. You must write a plan for your business. This may seem difficult at the time, however it will save you a lot of planning in the future. 

Business and Capital can be very unpredictable at times and if you have not planned out everything that you are going to do, then you could be unprepared for difficult situations that you did not anticipate.

This does not mean that you need to write a book on your business. It can be at any length that you feel is necessary. However it is important to get this stage right for the future of your business.
