We have bought and now own our house with 5000sqm of land and we had a 4year plan to save money and build Glamping (glamourous camping) Units and let out the holiday accomodation.
With Ania's father's health declining(Alzheimers) we have decided to ask you the public to help us achieve our goal quicker in order for us to care for him on a more permanent basis.
We're not asking for your money in return for nothing, we are offering rewards for you to help us:
£15 donation gets you a nights accommodation in a bell tent. (Sleeps 2-4)
£25 donation gets you a nights accommodation in any of the glamping units. (Sleeps 4-6)
£75 donation gets you a weeks accommodation in a bell tent. (photo is an example) (Sleeps 2-4)
£150 donation gets you a weeks accommodation in any of the glamping units. (photos are examples) (Sleeps 4-6)
£1000 donation gets you 1% of the business which means yearly profit will be given to you at 1% of the profit, we project you will receive double your investment back in the first 2 years of us opening our doors to the paying public. Also you will be invited to stay a week for free in the opening party month of July 2018 to help us improve the site with your ideas and suggestions.
When you have pledged and the project ended we will send you a code unique to yourself which can be used when sending your booking request to us for selecting the dates you wish to stay. (Check the website booking calender to make sure it's available)
We aim to create a truly unique glamping holiday experience with each South facing mountain view glamping unit set in it's own private garden surrounded by edible hedging with fruit, nuts, herbs and vegetables to be picked and eaten when in season. All glamping units will have private kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor eating & decked area, with a purpose built outdoor camp fire for cooking on, some with compost toilets and all will use Solar energy to heat the water, or for Solar power/lights, and eventually all units will have use of a clear stargazing dome(below).
The Safari Tent, Yurt, Log Cabin, and Tree House will eventually get a private wood fired hot tub to use, and we will eventually provide hot food and drink, but to start with all units will be self catering with day time snacks available.
We will be growing herbs, vegatables, and fruit when we build the aquaponics polytunnel, aquaponics is an ecosystem where the fish or fresh water lobster provide an organic food source for the soil less plants (and us) that are grown in growning media (volcanic stones), the microrobes and composting worms then filter the water for the fish. (See example diagram below). There are many fruit trees planted already on site, which we will add to so there will be a variety of Autumn fruits for picking.
Your money will be used for these things:
£5000 Groundwork, drainage, underground plumbing & electric cabling, edible hedges.
£5000 Solar powered water & electrics.
£6000 Safari tent, Mongolian Yurt, and two Bell Tents.
£2000 Timber to build the Treehouse, and Log Cabin and Decking for all units.
£2000 for the liner to build a natural swimming pool for guests to swim in or observe the natuaral wild life and insects this will attract. (example swimming pool below provided by David Pagan Butler as we will be using his design and instruction)
We will possibly be the first holiday destination to have one price, and not a high/low season pricing system!
Everything will be built by Ania and myself with help from volunteers, so if you'd like to help on site please see the Volunteer page on our website.
