Summer is here, and it's time for families to break free from the confines of classrooms and embrace the wonders of the great outdoors! In this camping-concentrated blog, we invite families (with children of all ages) to embark on exciting camping adventures throughout the summer holidays!
WHY WE THINK EVERY FAMILY SHOULD OWN A BELL TENT.
While owning a tent may not always be a necessity, it is undoubtedly one of the most valuable and versatile pieces of equipment a family can possess! While indulging in the luxury of booking a glamping bell tent for a night or two offers unparalleled convenience, the costs can add up significantly. In fact, after just three nights in a pre-pitched, fully-furnished 5m bell tent, you could have easily invested in your own, ensuring countless future adventures, savings, and even earnings!
When it comes to vacation options, your tent opens up a world of wanderlust and freedom that temporary staycations or hotels abroad can't match. Say goodbye to browsing the web for cheap flights, enduring lengthy travel times, and saving tirelessly for costly trips. With a tent, spontaneity becomes your ally, encouraging you and your little ones to venture outdoors and explore more often, stress-free.
Unlike flimsy, budget tents, our high-quality tents are an investment that, when well-maintained, can last a lifetime and even be passed down to the kids as they grow older. So, instead of being tied down by travel logistics and expenses, let your tent be the gateway to a lifetime of unforgettable adventures, right at your fingertips.
The versatility of owning a tent became even more apparent during the COVID lockdowns. Families discovered the joy of creativity as tent owners, finding numerous ways to make the most of their outdoor sanctuaries. From setting up tents in back gardens for delightful movie nights under the stars to transforming them into extended offices or playrooms, people realised that a simple tent could offer memorable, affordable, and effortless adventures for both kids and adults alike. It became a symbol of freedom and escape during challenging times, reminding us all of the beauty and simplicity of the great outdoors right at our doorstep.
Typically, families that own tents may find their beloved gear spending more time gathering dust in the attic than being pitched and enjoyed to its fullest. However, we're here to reveal a hidden opportunity – by leaving your tent unused, you might be missing out on a chance for a lucrative side income!
Who wouldn't love extra funds to splurge on exciting activities during the summer holidays? Thanks to platforms like Tent Share and Fat Llama, tent owners can list their equipment for rent, allowing eager campers to enjoy the camping experience for a nightly fee of up to £100 or more. So, why not turn your idle tent into a profitable asset while spreading the joy of camping to others?
Another rising trend among tent owners is the creation of small businesses built around their equipment, becoming a lucrative source of income. By using their tents as the central attraction and enhancing them with themed decorations and furnishings tailored to customers' needs, they cater to parties, sleepovers, baby showers, and various other events. If you have spare time outside of your parental and work responsibilities, this presents an excellent opportunity to boost your income without overwhelming commitments. Such bookings can be charged around the £200 range, making it a rewarding and flexible venture for enterprising individuals.
