Well that was an education, so much learnt in such a short space of time but what a fantastic first season of running a Glampsite in Cheddar Gorge (albeit a short one) and even better than we thought it would be.
Lovely guests, (some of whom even took their shoes off to use the facilities block as they didn’t want to make it dirty!), all of them so friendly and appreciative of our little site.
Lovely well behaved dogs of all shapes, sizes, age and temperament, but all of whom loved watching the rabbits and walking in the woods and dog walking paddock.
And the reviews, well, everyone seemed to love Owley Woods, Glampsite in Cheddar Gorge, as much as we do which makes all the hard work worthwhile.
We even had guests returning for a second visit in the short time we were open and guests that had been recommended by family and friends which is always reassuring.
So, what were the main learning points?
White Tea Towels and BBQs do not mix
Mown grass gets everywhere – and I mean everywhere
The electric kettle makes everyone happy, even the hardened campers!
There is no time to write a blog….
We closed slightly early this year as Matt was due to have a knee operation and I think I may have struggled moving everything on my own. Although we did have lots of help from amazing friends and family
The October weather was amazing and we spent the last night in the tents with a final Firepit/BBQ and it wasn’t even cold.
The tents have now been delivered for cleaning and reproofing and the furniture is all stored – mainly in the house so we now cant move as we didn’t have time to build a shed…
Roll on next year – I cant wait for Owley Woods first complete season and meeting more amazing guests and their four legged friends
