Identify Your Site’s Location 

The first thing you should be planning is the location of your site. It is essential your glampsite is easily accessible for visitors, if it’s difficult to find and get to, people may feel put off. It’s Important to plan ahead when you are deciding where to host your glampsite, as you may be needing to expand over time as your business grows. Choosing a smaller area of land would be great in the beginning but as you expand, you’ll need the ability to do so. An advantage would be a good looking plot of land, avoiding noisy areas and bad views, such as factories, to increase visitor satisfaction.
