We are finding that our cabins are increasingly being used by businesses for commercial use. They are being adapted to be used as Camping Cabins and the barbecue cabins are being hired out for party nights and to offer camping and glamping guests something different and special as part of their holiday.
Yeaveley Estate, an established 40 acre shooting and outdoor activity centre located in the heart of Derbyshire has just set up a Arctic Cabins village to offer all year round accommodation to its stag and hen party groups.
The Estate has been owned and managed by husband and wife team Guy and Lesley Field for the past 20 years. They offer a range of country pursuits, host numerous corporate events and are a popular venue for stag and hen party weekends. To date on site accommodation consists of army tents and tipis.
Lesley said “our weekends are very popular with both hen and stag parties and groups like university reunions and we were finding that we were getting to the end of the summer season and we didn’t have the ability to put people up but we knew that we could carry on taking bookings, people wanted to come.”
In the summer of 2014 the couple began looking for camping accommodation that would allow them to extend their booking season. A word of mouth recommendation led Guy and Lesley to Arctic Cabins. In October we installed two 14m2 camping cabins both fitted out internally with 8 bunks and a 10m2 barbecue cabin. The idea being that Yeaveley would rent out the cabins and the barbecue as a weekend party venue.
The cabins sleep 8 people dormitory style. The barbecue cabin will be included as part of the booking and can be used as much as the group likes. The fire can be lit to provide somewhere warm and cosy to relax during the day or in the evening they can barbecue and party.
Lesley said “guests will be able to book both sleeping cabins and use the barbecue cabin as part of the facilities, we know the groups that we have here will love using the barbecue cabin, sitting around the fire, chatting, laughing and keeping warm whilst cooking their dinner and enjoying their wine.”
Lesley concluded “there are endless possibilities for our new cabins, we’ve lots of ideas. We will be welcoming our first visitors in the spring of 2015. If all goes well we will add more cabins in the future.”
