"Sarah Riley was an absolute lifeline for us. Her e-learning course was our first discovery, which saved us hours of time of research and £100’s of pounds of potential wasted money by taking decisions that would have been uneducated. There is no other resource out there of this quality in the glamping sector - other than Sarah Riley herself! After purchasing the e-learning course, it was an easy decision to retain the services of Sarah as a consultant.  Sarah has a very approachable and calm style, wrapped with passion in what she does. I am sure that anyone that is looking to employ either her courses or her consultancy services will have immediate payback for the investment."

 "The Ultimate Glamping Business Guide has been so helpful in the process of setting up our business. We bought the guide whilst looking for suitable properties and it enabled us to visualise what we needed from a site. Without this there isn’t much information available on how to go about setting up a glampsite so it has been invaluable. We moved to Norfolk in summer 2014 and because of the Guide were immediately able to start working on our business idea by applying for planning permission & licenses. We set up Round the Woods last year and opened just in time for the August Bank Holiday weekend. We currently have 2 fully furnished yurts and are located in Norfolk, offering a luxury experience for our guests to relax and connect with nature. We’re really looking forward to our 1st full season!"
