“Wigwam Holidays offered the perfect fit with their proven, turn-key solution for diversifying our farm”, John and Laura Hume, Wigwam Holidays Moffat.
“The return on investment and the fun had since opening in 2015, have made my decision to join the Wigwam Family the best commercial decision I have ever made”, James Goode, Wigwam Holidays Brampton.
“The Franchise Package answered all our questions. We are farmers and surveyors – with no experience in the Glamping sector, so the fact that it was a business in a box really appealed to us. It answered questions like, ‘how to market the product’ and ‘what online booking system to use’. As we had no clue! The Franchise Package was perfect for our needs”, Stuart and Catherine Tweddle, Wigwam Holidays Sedgewell Barn.
“Having looked at all the options from pod and tent manufacturers to marketing networks, we knew at once that Franchise was the right fit for us. We have several businesses and the Wigwam Holidays Franchise offers us a brand, team support and a world class product – which meant we hit the ground running. We are very satisfied with the return on investment and love being part of the team”, Nick and Airin Gilmore, Wigwam Holidays Montrave Estate.
“We needed to diversify and Wigwam Holidays were the perfect solution. We have been part of Wigwam Holidays for 10 years. They offer a great team including marketing, training, IT support and seminars. The annual conference is also great” Julia and John Warters, Wigwam Holidays Humble Bee.
“The Wigwam Holidays Franchise offers a powerful brand, joint marketing, shared vision and a fantastic team. We love the whole product – the cabins, the support, the website, online bookings and the digital marketing”, Victoria and Gregor Butler, Wigwam Holidays The Loft.
"If you buy into Wigwam® Holidays you get quality workmanship and a product that you can rely on. We feel part of a community offering comfort and support, we have invested in a brand that we can trust", John and Lizzie Ridout, Wigwam Holidays Penbugle.
