Horse and hound country breaks glamping style
If you want to get out in to the great outdoors, what better way is there to combine an equestrian or hound break and campervan for your outdoor adventure.
Wanderlust is a young, enterprising campervan hire company based in Dymock in the Forest of Dean, perfectly located for guests wishing to travel to Cheltenham, Hartpury and Badminton. A perfect location for the Three Counties Showground's forthcoming Midland Arabian Festival in June. Annah and Andrew Todman, owners of Wanderlust, have handcrafted and individually designed their campers to offer a stylish, comfortable home-on-wheels. With flexible accommodation for families and the inclusion of two fully insured drivers, guests hiring one of their campers can visit the showground and enjoy the freedom to explore all that the area has to offer.
STAY CLOSE TO THE ACTION
Annah has teamed up with Rosie Clare, the owner of Rosebud Meadow, to offer her guests something new and unique. Annah says: "Our horse and hound country breaks offer the fantastic opportunity for our campervans to stay on Rosie's glamp-site, usually reserved for those staying in a glamping pod. Our guests can stay close to The Three Counties Showground without the hustle and bustle, allowing them to enjoy the tranquillity of the area. The site allows its guests to bring along their horses and we allow dogs in some of our campers."
Rosebud Meadow can accommodate horses in either their American style barn or well fenced paddock and offers direct access to 3000 acres off-road horse riding, meaning guests can bring their own horses with them to enjoy the break too. Rosie says: "Our pods and horse holidays are hugely popular and so it's great to offer a different experience and welcome more guests in this way whilst keeping an exclusive feel to our site for guests looking to get away from it all."
WHEELS IN MOTION FOR 2018
Wanderlust is just coming up to its first anniversary and Annah is keen for her innovative company to offer more unique experiences. Annah has been able to access a range of services through Gloucestershire Research and Innovation Programme (GRIP), based at the University of Gloucestershire to allow Wanderlust to build on its already firm foundations. All the services provided by the project are fully funded to Gloucestershire based businesses who are looking to grow through innovation.
Annah concluded: "Wanderlust's first year has been great. When I first started the company with my husband we wanted to share our joy of being out on an adventure in a campervan. Our guests have loved their country breaks, and with many of them staying local to explore our beautiful countryside we wanted to be able to enhance their enjoyment further by collaborating with other local leisure and tourism businesses to bring them more unique experiences. With the help and advice from GRIP, we're able to reach new customers who may not have thought about hiring a campervan before and those who are looking for something a bit different. I'm excited about Wanderlust's next chapter – watch this space!"
